Default Best way to get a TV signal

Looking for a good but inexpensive way to obtain a TV signal on the boat. We are inland river boaters just looking to have the game paling on the screen in the background.

I've had really good luck with the
Shakespeare Seawatch TV Antenna, they don't look that bad and cost is good.

These days a $15 HDTV over the air antenna will work great in most inland places. Alternatively, use you phone to watch TV using the Dish Network or DTV app and stream that to your smart tv

Dish Antennas don't do well on boats.
