Aereo is no more. Help me create my own Mac-based replacement.

I do not own a TV and I don't have a cable subscription. I don't want to get either one of those things. I do, though, occasionally like to watch broadcast TV (or recordings of broadcast TV) on my MacBook Pro or iPad. Aereo was a great solution. Now that Aereo is gone how can I create an approximate replacement for use in my home? [more inside]

Getting over the air stations in the middle of nowhere

We just moved to a new town where, apparently, over the air television signals cannot reach. When I input my address into AntennaWeb, I get this response: "No Stations were predicted for this address. Due to factors such as terrain and distance to broadcasting towers, signal strength calculations have predicted no television stations may be reliably received at this location." Without giving away my home address, I live in zip code 17837. I really would like to get OTA stations without purchasing cable or a satellite. What are my options? [more inside]

Why is my UHF reception bad?

Last night I purchased a Television Antenna hoping for an inexpensive way to get local channels without having to pay a monthly bill. The antenna has both VHF and UHF receptors. The VHF (channels 2-13) work great, but the UHF (channels 14+) isn't giving me even a damned glitch of reception. There's no switch on the antenna itself, and there was no owner's manual included. Anyone know what could be going on? Is the fact that I live in a major metropolitan area going to affect my ability to receive UHF channels?
