Both the "land line" and over-the-air receiver are called "antenni" in Finnish. 
That's the problem. :-]

But this is not the case here, as we don't have satellites in the equation. It's

cable. And we don't distinguish the sending method (broadcast) and receiver 
(antenna) but call them both by the name of the receiver.
