When cars drive by my house, it messes up my TV antenna signal and my Apple TV streaming.

My house is on a somewhat busy street (busses pass by many times per hour) and is situated below street-level. I have antenna TV using a bunny-ears type antenna. When a large vehicle, or at some times of day, any vehicle, drives by, the signal cuts out for a second. During heavier traffic times of day, it's pretty much impossible to watch anything. I know I should probably buy a nicer antenna, but that's only part of the problem.
I also have Apple TV that I use to stream Netflix on the TV through the Wi-fi. I have the same problem with the streaming freezing up when cars drive by.
Has anyone ever had a similar problem and/or know of any solutions? Googling only gets me stuff about car antennas.
