Earlier today, Brian chatted on the phone with a retired woman concerning the lies about antennas told to her. She called us because she wanted to know if we would install the antenna she found online. She knew she needed to cut the cord to save money and so she did some research. Brian googled the antenna and was shocked by the claims. No wonder she wanted us to install this particular antenna. The advertisement said she could get all kinds of specialty cable channels on the antenna. That is false. It is a scam. Hundreds of other cord cutting companies and cheap antenna companies are trying to swindle you out of your hard earned dollars. That makes us very angry!
We must be clear so there is no misunderstanding. From a properly installed, whole home outdoor/attic antenna, you can get local and national broadcasts from NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, PBS, the CW. These major network channels are broadcast in stunning HD, whose signal quality exceeds that provided by your payTV company. But you can’t can’t can’t get the traditional “cable channels” on an antenna. You can get those channels from other sources; however, the trick of integrating antenna channels and streaming channels in a way that is easy to use is only known by the experts and the super tech savvy. For everyone else, the world of antennas and cord cutting is filled with misleading information or outright lies.
A properly installed, whole home antenna is the best way to see the SuperBowl, the nightly news, the Oscars, Young Sheldon, The Good Doctor, 60 Minutes and almost every one of the most popular shows in the country. There are no outages. There are no nagging payTV salespeople calling you. In fact, when you get an antenna, you will know the results of a play, or Oscar winner or lottery numbers 4 to 10 seconds ahead of everyone using traditional payTV. You can really annoy your friends if you can text the word “Touchdown!” to them before they see it on TV. It is tough to do but if a play is shaping up for a score, then type the word “Touchdown!” in your message app and send it the moment the ball crosses the plane.
Effective, money saving and seamless cord cutting is not easy. It is not easy from a research standpoint as any google search for antennas will tell you. It is not easy from physical standpoint, as anyone who has fallen off a ladder will tell you. And it is not easy from a technical standpoint, as anyone who has tried to DIY will tell you. We are in business for three reasons: First, we test everything related to cord cutting as long as it is legal. Second, we want to listen to your stories and help you make sense of cord cutting. Third, we want to save you money so you can spend it on more important things.
