i'm getting ready to ditch my hulu live tv service as we dont use that much an the vod library
we don't watch as much as as we do are other services

Disney plus , apple , paramount plus , hbo max , an amazon prime (all vi yearly option)

The combined vod library's cover all are desired content and we watch most evenly daily ,but we still want to live and if we could get the basic local ota we'd be happy happy happy!!! that's about 7 -13ch's

but we haven't used any Antenna gear in almost 20 years my dad still (wants) to record live football games when live
on nbc,cbs,abc,fox an certain nova and pbs shows

long ago i once considered getting a silicon dust unit but never did now we want to so what i want to know
is this will these three items cover my (wants) and if i tie this into my network what app do i need for

the ota gui & dvr control from the nvidia shield i'm ok with the Silicon Dust's service ($35/yr)

because its per year just like all the other services in keeping

Is it a safe bet that this Antenna will get at least 13ch's or at min 7
without having to mount outside or on the roof ?

It really depends on the location of the broadcast towers in relation to where the antenna sits... Take a look at the location on one of these maps...

Don't know if this is any help, or how far you are from the broadcasting stations, so maybe my info won't apply to you.

I live in a two story house that we bought in 1991 and I installed an attic antenna that same year. We live around 50 miles north of Denver and we've never had a reception problem getting the OTA Denver stations. I still have the same antenna hooked up to the TVs as a backup, just in case our DISH network service has a problem during bad weather. Local digital channels are just as clear as the DISH channels. The additional OTA digital channels have varying degrees of reception quality, but I never watch them so I don't care about those.

I also tried an EVOCA NextGen TV device this summer and my 30+ yr old antenna had no reception problems.

Good luck with your search.
