Not true.. you can pick up a relatively cheap external tuner for HD or something like the TiVO Roamio for locals... I really have not used the antenna input/tuner on my LCD TV's for the past 5 years... I cut the cable 2 years ago and just use antennas and have had a TiVO Premier with lifetime connected to my antenna for locals without a problem.
Found this box for $22 to get OTA signals through HDMI OTA Box

You're lucky that you have been able to avoid cable company rental fees for this long. Prepare yourself -- unfortunately it's only a matter of time before your cable company starts encrypting those local channels, and now that Supreme Stooge Ajit Pai has scrapped the FCC set-top provisions, you will have to either rent from your local monopoly or cut the cord altogether. Sad times.
