free local channels

I have wifi only and cannot afford a cable provider. Is there a way to access free CBS and ABC.. Not the news one, just regular basic ABC and CBS.

You can get a digital Antenna

or see if Locast will work for you. https://www.locast.org/

Digital antennas are also for digital television sets and digital to analog television converter boxes if you didn’t know.

Re: free local channels

The apps claim to require cable or satellite, so I’m not sure if there IS a way to access CBS and ABC without having a cable television provider.
