ONTARIO, Calif., July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As prices continue to rise on cable and satellite pay TV options consumers are continuing to "cut-the-cord" from their costly service providers. More and more lower-cost over-the-top (OTT) video services and streaming alternatives are filling in the home TV entertainment space. When teamed up with a high-gain digital antenna consumers can access free over-the-air TV broadcasts to complement their video and or streaming service. Nine out of 10 US households can receive free digital and HDTV signals with the proper antenna.
"When you do the math we know consumers can realize savings by bundling a digital antenna to receive free over-the-air TV with internet to stream their favorite service like Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime," said Eric Jiang, ANTOP Antenna vice president.
Viewers can opt out of their cable and satellite packages, that most times include blocks of channels that are never watched, to a more selective viewing alternative. Most TV viewers don't watch more than a handful of channels in a year. As internet-based low-cost streaming options continue to rise, viewers can be very selective and will hardly feel the difference when they eventually "cut-the-cord."
Of course technology will play a large part in the "cut-the-cord" movement, both in terms of internet speeds and high-gain digital antenna options. ANTOP has been manufacturing and marketing digital indoor and outdoor TV antennas for nearly 40 years and offers a full suite of more than 28 different Over-The-Air digital TV antenna models.
"Our digital antennas combine aesthetically pleasing designs suitable to match a wide range of home décor styles and the latest technology to provide a crystal clear HDTV reception," remarked Jiang. "Our models utilize exclusive amplifier and filter technology to provide our customer with the best viewing experience possible."
The amount of free over-the-air channels one can receive will vary by area and antenna selection, before cutting the cord consumers should check their signal availability at FCC.gov.
