Recently, my wife and I have been considering dropping our Rogers cable subscription for OTA TV since we don't ever seem to find anything worth watching on TV except TSN and local programming.

We have a 5 year old TV with NTSC and live on the 10th floor of an apartment building. Here is my report from TV Fool (which is pretty confusing to someone as inexperienced as I am).

My questions are:

1. Will a simple TV top antenna work to pick up the analogue stations in green on the report and possibly some of the yellow due to the height of our apartment?

2. Am I right to assume that I need a convertor box with the simple antenna to pick up the digital stations as well?

3. Any other suggestions?
