options for watching tv without a set top box

I currently have one DVR box and one set top box and just bought a new HD tv for another room but don't want to "rent" another box.  What are my options for the TV without a set top box.

Jon

Without a box the only thing you will get is the local SD and HD broadcast stations and the PEG stations. Thjis assumes that your new TV has a QAM tuner (which AFAIK all do today).   Everything else is encrypted and requires a box (either from Verizon or one that supports a cable card).
