The Top Shows on TV
Did you know 94 of the 100 top rated shows on TV are broadcast over the air for FREE? That means there’s a good chance your favorite show can be seen with an HD Antenna.
Better Quality Stream
Over-the-air antennas broadcast a signal that is not compressed like a cable or satellite signal. This leads many to believe that the streams you’re shown by an HD Antenna are higher quality than that of a cable or satellite signal.
Local Stations Required By Law
That’s right, major stations ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX are required by law to offer their signals over the air for free. That means with our Mohu Antenna you can pick all of these stations up in HD for free. This can be limited depending on the area in which you live, but we’ll cover that later.
How Does an HD Antenna Work?
A Local HD antenna is exactly what the name says. It’s an antenna that has the ability to receive HD TV broadcast signals in your local area. There are many different versions and styles, but we’ve found that the flat paper thin models are the most popular.
These paper thin antennas can be hung in a window or attached to the wall. They can really be placed anywhere, but the window or wall are the most popular locations.
Once you have found a good mounting location, the next step is to connect the antenna to your TV and a power source.
It’s super easy to connect your antenna.
Simply plug the coax cable into the amplifier, the plug that coax into the back of your TV. Then all you have to do is find the best place for a great signal. We recommend high up on a wall or near a window. The best thing to do is test several different places for the best signal and most channel options.
What else can an HD antenna do?
This is one of the biggest reasons that HD antennas are so valuable. There’s no better way to stay connected to what’s happening in your community than your local news. HD antennas allow you to view all of the local news affiliates from all of the major TV networks.
Sub Channels are a cool feature that offer so many great options for different content. If you see that your local CBS station is channel 6.1, then usually you’ll have 6.2 and 6.3 as channel options too. These channels usually offer classic TV shows and movies as well as a vast array of international content.
While everyone else is stuck paying hundreds of dollars for special sports packages, you can stream lots of local sports for free. When you need your sports fix, your HD antenna will come through in the clutch. Especially on the weekends.
Did we mention it’s free?
While the antenna itself is not free, all of the TV watching you’ll do after you get it is. We’ve had customers who’ve had the same HD antenna for years, and it’s still offering the same great signal. How much money can that save you?
Is an HD antenna for everyone?
Well, that depends on where you live. If you live in a more rural area, you may not be able to receive the signal for your local channels. Therefore, you may not get the most out of the antenna.
There are many other factors that can affect the signal that you get from an HD antenna.
To be safe, we recommend checking your available channels HERE. You’ll see the number of channels and the networks that you can expect in your area. You’ll also see the model that’s best for you.
