The Complete Cord-Cutting Guide

Cable/Satellite TV Alternatives
A digital antenna can receive dozens of channels, including major networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, ION, NBC, PBS) and “subchannel” networks (Court TV, H&I, MeTV, etc). A digital antenna can be connected to existing cable or satellite wiring and digital TV signals tune directly on all TVs manufactured 2006 or later (Older sets may require a $35 tuner box). A range of Over-The-Air DVR options are available, allowing you to watch live or recorded TV on devices and smart TV platforms.
There are a variety of streaming services available to fit your viewing needs. Streaming services can be broken down into three major categories:
-Paid, on-demand content (Disney+, Hulu, Netflix, etc.)
-Paid, live TV [cable replacement] (YouTube TV, Philo, Sling, etc.)
-Free (Pluto TV, Tubi, XUMO, etc.)
Many streaming services can be viewed directly on modern smart TVs. Older sets require a streaming device, such a Roku, Chromecast or Fire TV, available for around $30-$40.
We can assist you with the selection of streaming TV services, installation and setup of streaming hardware.
Free-To-Air Satellite systems offer access to a variety of primarily religious and international channels. FTA can be distributed simultaneously over the same coax cabling as a digital antenna system.
