Cut the Cord: The Top Six Reasons

Ready to give up cable TV? Cord-cutting is growing in popularity for many reasons, some of which we share here.

You hear the term “cutting the cord,” but have ever thought about what that means? The original meaning speaks to adults ending their dependence upon their parents. Today, the term speaks to severing the connection to expensive, unreliable cable TV. Are you tired of how “Mama Cable” dictates what you watch? TV antennas and satellite dishes are a great way to end your dependence on her. Here are the reasons why you should cut the cord that feeds your expensive TV programming.

1. Cord-Cutting Saves Money

“Mama Cable” takes too much of your hard-earned money. Today’s VHF/UHF HDTV antennas can grab most or all of those local HDTV signals out of the air and bring them inside your home. All you have to do is cut the cord then purchase the right equipment, which usually costs much less than cable.

2. No contract for Free TV

Applications, credit checks, and multi-year contracts is what cable is all about. Too bad you don’t always get your money’s worth. Cable service routinely goes down, leaving you with nothing but dead air to pay for. With TV antennas and equipment, you pay for it once and it’s yours forever. From that point forward, you’re enjoying free TV. Think of the money you’ll save!

3. TV Antennas are Easy to Install

Ever work with a cable TV installer? Having the wrong one can make a mess of your home. Installing a TV antenna is a better way. In most cases, you can do it yourself. If you need some help, just call Solid Signal. Our team will walk you through the process or connect you with a qualified installer in your area.

4. Streaming is an Option

And it’s an affordable one for cord-cutters. Companies such as Amazon, HBO, and Netflix are more affordable than most cable plans. With streaming services, you watch what you want when you want without the high costs of cable.

5. Quality TV Reception

Over-the-air TV is always going to have better quality than cable. Cable companies take the antenna-based signal then reprocess it to fit more channels onto a single wire. When a digital signal is decompressed, processed, then re-compressed, it’s like making an analog copy. Only antenna TV retains the signal’s pristine quality level, making it the best option for TV lovers.

6. Cutting the Cord Feels Good!

There’s something liberating about taking control of your life. Cutting the cord is taking control of how you enjoy TV. Plus, it’s a great way to show those big cable corporations that you’re in charge now!
