Winegard TV antenna

Hey folks just picked up a 2002 Keystone Hornet Lite 25FL a couple weeks ago. Needed a little TLC so got a fair deal.
So far...
Fixed a couple soft spots and put cheap laminate flooring in. Looks way better than the old carpet and linoleum.
Changed all the bulbs inside to LED's
Fixed a broken window blind.
Got a few more projects and a good cleaning in and out.

I have two TV antenna jacks and a winegard antenna. Is this just a paperweight in 2020?
I wouldn't mind grabbing a couple cheap 24" Walmart TV's and hooking them up.
I do have Dish at home. Could I get another receiver( Hopper) and a dish to replace the antenna? Or is it even worth it?
Thanks for your help.

The antenna will work fine with modern tv's. There should be a booster located where the jack is to connect the antenna. If there is a second jack next to it may be for satellite. There is a jack on the outside to tie into cable. The booster has to be off for that to work. Look for a satellite connection on the outside also it will be next to the cable. If it isn't wired separately for satellite you can't use the cable tv hook up for that you will have to run your own coax.
