Can Apple TV stream local television programs, eliminating the need for antenna or cable?
Does Apple TV. can be used to stream local television programs? I do not have a subscription to cable, fios tv or direct tv., so I use an indoor antenna. Can Apple TV. replace the use of antenna.

No. You will still need your antenna for that. But you might find you don't want to. You can fill up a lot of your time with things like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and Vimeo. And if its news you want, you may discover the program you want is a free podcast in the iTunes Store.

If you have the ability to stream the local networks to your computer, iPad, or iPhone via a high speed connection you can view it on your TV with Apple TV. That being said, the Apple TV is not an antenna, it is a device used to patch your Apple device through to your TV.
