I don't offer any suggestions about indoor antennas, because they are so non-optimal, and installing an external antenna is so easy, that there is little point.
You could get a tiny, cheap UHF panel/bowtie antenna and mount it on a satellite dish mast/foot outside and get great signals for everything. That's what I'd do.
