July 14, 2023
Are you trying to cut the cord on cable TV, but don’t know where to start? We go over some simple steps on how to set up your streaming service and device. But if you’re interested in gaining access to more live TV channels without having to pay for a cable plan, an over-the-air (OTA) antenna might be a good fit for you.
After an affordable one-time purchase and a simple indoor installment, an OTA antenna can give cord cutters access to not just your favorite shows, but live events like sports and news without paying a subscription fee. Depending on where you live, you can get access to NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS, PBS, and other channels.
Interested in an affordable, contract-free way to get your local channels? We’ve put together a list of some of the best OTA antennas out there to help you cut the cord on cable TV for good:
