I ditched the cable and use this antenna to pull in stations from a distance of about 30 miles. I get about 30 channels and for most the quality is as good or better than the cable service I gave up. I get all the major networks and their subchannels. I watch mostly local news and some Amazon Prime TV series and movies. If you are a news junkie or a sports junkie, you may wish to continue the cable or subscribe to one or more internet services, but what you get on the antenna alone is surprisingly good. I attached the antenna to the facia on the eaves of my roof and needed to add a little extension to the pole that came with the antenna to keep it off the roof.
