The over-the-air TV antenna is enjoying a resurgence—thanks in part to cord cutters who want to supplement their Netflix and Amazon Prime bingeing with a bit of live TV.
Cable, satellite, and FiOS TV subscriptions can be expensive, but often we forget that broadcast TV (which features some of the most popular programs) is still free. Anyone who wants a cheap and easy way to get HD programming from major and local networks should give an indoor TV antenna a try.
TV antennas are perfect for people who are fed up with expensive cable TV subscriptions and get most of their viewing fix from online streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Sling TV. Streaming will get you lots of great TV programming, but an antenna will get you free live programs from the major networks like CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, The CW, Univision, Telemundo, and PBS. Depending on your metropolitan area, an antenna is also a good way to get free foreign language channels in both standard definition and high definition.
