How to watch the game, without the cost

WASHINGTON – There are ways to see live sports events in HDTV without getting stuck with the cable or satellite TV service bills.

Maybe consumers have become accustomed to paying each month, but sports fans have forgotten that plenty of these games are featured on over-the-air networks like Fox, NBC and CBS. Plus, over-the-air broadcasts are free.

USA Today recommends the $40 Mohu Leaf antenna to pick up the games.

It’s also worth the time to check online. Some sporting events, subject to local blackouts, are streamed online free of charge.
