Keeping your Local Channels
Whether you’re a local nightly news watcher, or you’re in front of the TV two nights a week for your favorite primetime shows, cutting the cord doesn’t have to affect your routine. In fact, the only routine it affects is cutting a check to the cable or satellite company every month!
You don’t have to part with the standard broadcast channels and their scheduled programming to eliminate your cable bill. Some cable networks even offer a streaming service so you can keep watching their shows without your cable company. So, how do you subtract the bill from the equation?
Digital TV Antenna
A quality digital antenna installed by a professional allows you to receive basic channels for free. You can still watch primetime shows from the major broadcast networks, as well as local channels. Digital antennas use over-the-air signal that results in a clear high-definition picture. This is great for watching the big game in life-like quality. Antennas can be installed either on the roof of your home or, in some cases, in the attic. With nearly all of our installations we even guarantee the signal!
You may only primarily watch one channel and have a hard time justifying your cable bill for just the one. Whether or not you want an antenna as well, a digital streaming service specific to the television network you use most might be the best solution for you. Some networks offer very inexpensive streaming subscriptions to all the shows available on their channel. If you’re looking for just a little bit more, the shows from many channels are available on several different streaming services such as Hulu, Sling TV, or PlayStation Vue. Some of these services can even be a good option for keeping up with your favorite sports team! In order to use a streaming service, you’ll need internet in your home, as well as a Apple TV or a streaming device such as a Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Roku TV.
Any way you slice it, cutting the cord and finally leaving your cable company can reduce your monthly costs significantly. Whether the one-time expense of installing crystal clear picture with a digital TV antenna, or the minimal monthly cost of a streaming subscription with the shows you want, you don’t have to sacrifice network channels and shows!
