HDTV Antenna Installation
Tired of paying ridiculously high cable bills? June 12, 2009, all analog signals in the US and Canada were shut down, leaving those who used traditional over the air antennas with no channels to choose from. This forced many people to subscribe to expensive cable companies, who force you to subscribe to channel packages, and can charge anywhere from $50 and up a month! Many people using antennas only watched a few select channels, and they were absolutely free! It’s time to get your channels back.
What to Look For In HDTV
Signal Pickup Quality
There’s no point in having an HDTV antenna if it has problems getting a high-definition signal. HDTV is broadcast on one of two frequencies: VHF (Very High Frequency) or UHF (Ultra High Frequency) Most HDTV broadcasts are in UHF, so it’s best to choose an antenna that receives UHF, though many digital antennas can receive both frequencies.
Signal Pickup Range
In terms of pickup range, there are two types of HDTV antennas. While directional antennas point in one direction and secure signals at a greater distance, multi-directional antennas pick up signals in all directions, but often have poorer reception and interference problems. Most quality outdoor HDTV antennas have a pickup distance of 30+ miles, though few exceed a distance of 65 miles. It is important to consider the terrain between your house and broadcasting stations, whether it is city buildings, mountains or flat land.

HDTV Antennas Are A Good Investment
Antennas equal free TV. Local channels such as PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox are meant to be free. An antenna will make sure you get these channels on your television. You’ll have to pay for your antenna, but after that, you’ll be able to watch all of the channels that are available in your area, and you won’t have to pay a dime.
The variety of free programming is astounding. Thanks to local channels, you’ll get news, sports, special events such as the Super Bowl and a wide variety of successful daytime, prime-time and late-night shows. Many of the top-rated shows each season come from local channels, so you will have plenty to watch.
Cable is cheating you. The majority of cable companies charge you every month for local channels. That’s right. With cable, you’re being charged for channels you already can get for free. Why pay for those channels when they are ready and waiting for you? Save your money and use your antenna instead.
Better visual quality. Cable gives you the option of standard definition or paying more for high definition. However, with an antenna you’ll get uncompressed HD. That’s going to give you a better visual clarity than you would receive with cable.
You’ll be weather-ready. How many times has a storm hit and knocked out your cable? With an antenna, you’ll be set even if the cable goes out. Your local channels will still be able to get you the information you need to keep your home and family safe in the event of an emergency.
