    Yes, kinda. There is a new service called Aereo that is being rolled out which will enable you to skip the antenna alltogether. I wanted to input the link, but that is not allowed. Do a search for Aereo & Apple TV. It is available in NYC now, and will be rolled out to DC later this year. Hope this helps!

  • No. You will still need your antenna for that. But you might find you don't want to. You can fill up a lot of your time with things like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and Vimeo. And if its news you want, you may discover the program you want is a free podcast in the iTunes Store.
