In central New Mexico, most TV broadcast towers are located on Sandia Crest.  If you can see the mountain top clearly, you likely have access to crystal-clear HDTV signals. 

You may be able to use a simple and inexpensive indoor antenna, which can be picked up at most hardware stores or electronics stores.  Signal strength may depend on walls, buildings or trees between the antenna and the TV towers.  Just plug the antenna into your TV, scan for channels, and enjoy the HDTV.

If TV signals indoors aren't strong enough, you may consider a rooftop antenna.  Just make sure your antenna is pointed at the broadcast towers -- ideally without buildings or trees obstructing the view.
