What's the best way to watch "24" in HD?

I'm torn between buying an HD tuner with terrestrial antenna, or getting Dish Network, or buying an Apple TV.

What would be the best way to watch 24 this season in high definition? I'm looking for the easiest and most cost effective.


thanks.

If your TV has a QAM tuner, I'd suggest running a coax cable from your tv to the cable jack on the wall and doing a channel search. There's a good chance you'll find the main networks in HD (ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, CW).

You know, I feel so stupid for not trying that out on my cable modem jack. I've got an HDTV/monitor in my home office and that's the only room that the cable runs into (I have Dish for TV). I bought an RCA HDTV antenna and can only get a few OTA HD channels and most of them aren't very strong signals. I'm going to pop a splitter on there and see what I come up with tonight.

My tv is a DLP Projection set. I thought it had a tuner at one point, but found it quickly that it didn't. I'm going to go the Apple TV route, that way I can watch the show on my own time. Plus, no commitment from the cable company or satellite dish.
