After you order your HR2x/H2x receiver, you can go into your account info and order the AM21 OTA tuner. If you happen to get an HR20 though, it already has the OTA tuner built-in.

As for needing to pay for the tuner, since you don't get all of your locals via DirecTV, you might get a sympathetic CSR who will throw in the AM21 for you, but generally it is $50.
