I think you can get a connection for the second TV through your satellite, but you'll have to watch the same thing that's on the original TV.
Yeah, after a year or so, I'm pretty sure antennas aren't going to work anywhere - heaven forbid people get free TV anymore!
Digital will work now--all you need is a converter for your analog sets. It's about $80 for a box...and there are rebates being offered. Once you buy the box, digital channels will come in just like the analog channels will. If we ever get off our butts here and get our converter box, we'll go up from two analog channels to about 6 digital ones--maybe more depending on signal strength.
So even after the changeover, if you have a digital TV or an analog TV with the converter, you'll still be getting 'free' TV.
