Are you part of the cord cutting revolution yet? Let's face it, with the number of streaming services out there, it's difficult to justify the hefty monthly bills from cable and satellite providers.

Services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon even have original programming on top of everything else you can stream. These services offer a less expensive alternative to cable and you can save hundreds of dollars a year.

It's a growing trend and cable-TV providers have reportedly lost a record-breaking 762,000 subscribers in the first quarter of 2017. That's five times more than they lost in the same period last year!

If you choose to join the trend and become a cable cutter yourself, you need to add an HD antenna to your system. An HD antenna will allow you to pick up local channels, and several others, that will let you watch live TV for free. You might be surprised at how many free channels you can pick up with an HD antenna.

When you hear the word antenna, you might think of old-school rabbit ears that struggled to give you fuzzy reception. Those days are long gone!

With an HD antenna, you can pick up over-the-air (OTA) broadcast channels such as ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, CW, PBS, ION and many others. Many of the most popular television shows, along with sporting events and local news, are broadcast on OTA television in High Definition. FOR FREE!
