Watch The Indy 500 For Free with an Antenna
You can watch NBC for free using a TV Antenna. Generally, if you live in a city or the suburbs, you can watch NBC over the air using something as simple as this $25 Flat TV antenna. This antenna offers a free return policy, so it’s no risk to test it out. If it doesn’t get the channels you want, you can return it for your money back.
You can see if NBC is available over the air using this FCC page. If the flat antenna doesn’t perform to your expectations, then check out the following instructional guides for more details on over-the-air TV.
