When cutting the cord, you have several alternative options to choose from. Among those options are a digital TV antenna and a media streaming device. While both options are affordable alternatives to cable, there are several differences between the two. Taking the time to understand the differences between these two options will help you pick the best one for your needs.


Digital TV Antenna

With a digital antenna, you’ll be able to access a number of different channels broadcasting over the air. A digital antenna will provide you with a crisp, high definition image. After a professional installation, a digital antenna will give you access to the most popular televised events and shows.


If you’re looking for a simple, quick method of accessing popular channels, a digital antenna is the way to go. After purchasing the antenna, you won’t have to worry about paying a monthly bill. Your antenna will give you nonstop access to free local channels.


There are several places you can install your new digital antenna. One of the most popular locations for installation is the roof. The roof provides a reliable signal and remains secure even in bad weather. You can also install your antenna in the attic if you would prefer the piece to be hidden from the outside of your house.


Media Streaming Device

Opting for a media streaming device provides you with quick, easy access to both popular and exclusive shows and programs. Streaming devices allow you to easily organize your favorite shows and movies into accessible lists and folders. Additionally, you have access to hundreds of programs to choose from.


Streaming services are notably less expensive when compared to monthly cable payments. As long as you have internet access and a streaming device, such as a Roku, AppleTV, or Amazon Fire Stick, you can download and subscribe to countless streaming services. The team at Cable Alternatives will help you with installation and downloading all of the components you need.


If you want access to high-quality, exclusive, and popular shows and movies, consider getting a media streaming device. Depending on the service, you may even be able to enjoy commercial-free entertainment.
