How can I get free TV?

 


Many Americans like you do not realize that they do not have to pay a monthly bill to view all the major network stations in a large city like Houston.

In the greater Houston area you have
access to broadcasted High Definition (HD) TV for FREE simply by plugging into an Over-The-Air (OTA) HDTV Antenna.

Just install a quality antenna that will allow you to enjoy free HD TV in any room in the house. Often you can use the cabling that has already been installed for cable TV or satellite. 

It's not required, but you can purchase a DVR that has the recording capabilities and channel guide just like your cable or satellite service.

Fire TV Recast is an example of a DVR that will let you watch and record over-the-air TV at home or on-the-go with no monthly fee.

Fire TV Recast, over-the-air DVR, 500 GB, 75 hours, DVR for cord cutters 

 

For less than $100, you can choose an AirTV Player. AirTV: Watch Local TV AnywhereIt stream movies, TV, music and other content using a wide range of apps, including Netflix, SlingTV, Google Play and many more from the Google Play Store all with AirTV Player. AirTV’s streaming platform integrates local over-the-air (OTA) programming with your internet streaming services.

What can I watch for free? The list below has just a few of the many channels and sub-channels you can watch. There are over 100 channels in Houston now.  Click here for a better listing.

Some have tried using a cheap indoor antenna and were disappointed. For good results, you need an adequate outdoor antenna with a signal amplifier. Let's talk about it.
