Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have read your question, watching TV over the air with an antenna has nothing to do with internet service, you simply need to connect the wire from the antenna that you bought to the RF antenna connector on the rear of the TV Looks like this.

Then you will have to open the menu on your TV with the remote and find the auto program setting and select it, it run a program that will load the over the air channels for should take a couple of minutes. make sure you select ant/air not cable.
