If your TV has an ATSC tuner built in you can connect an antenna and get the over the air channels available in your area. How many channels you get will vary based on the exact location and type of antenna. Digital signals don't get snowy like the old analog TV when they get weak, they just aren't received so I suggest you try it before cutting off your cable service.
