Sean’s family decided to cut the cord a few years back to stop paying extra for TV channels they never watched and because they were sick of the cable company promotions that expired ever year, presenting an unexpected large bill in the mailbox without warning.
However, there were two main concerns of losing TV: Watching sports and live news if there was a local incident or weather danger. Shortly after cutting the cord, they realized that most of the major networks like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS and a few others broadcast their digital signals over the air in full HIGH DEFINITION FOR FREE!. They couldn’t believe it….
All they had to do was pickup a cheap HD Antenna, plug it into their cable jack on their TV and direct it towards the nearest tower. Boom, full HD channels, LIVE on their TV for free. They were able to watch the election, all kinds of live sports, popular shows like America’s Got Talent, the local news and weather.
A good way to check what you can get in your area is to install the TV Guide app on your phone. Remember the old TV guides? Yeah, they have an app now haha! Then, go into Settings / Change Provider / Antenna and see if you can find a local broadcast or else there may not be one available in your region. Then, go back to “Listings” within the app to see what’s on. Sean’s family gets over 60 channels!
