If you can get HD with an antenna, why must everybody who wants to have cable have a cable box and connect with HDMI for HD? I'm pretty sure if you unscrew the coax going to the cable box and throw it in the TV then you just won't get anything and if you use coax from the cable box it will look terrible. But why? Is it simply to prevent people from stealing cable and for you to pay for a cable box? Why then do so many TV manufacturers insist on having that TV or "live TV" input on your input list? Most do not let you remove it.
