With free-to-air TV you can forget about recurring payments. Making an initial investment in an antenna system allows you to enjoy unlimited access to your favorite TV programs.

Pay TV services require an average monthly expense of $125 per household, or $1,500 per year. Free-to-air television does not require recurring payments, since it is possible to receive it totally free of charge, without paying any monthly fee. For this, you only need to make a one-time cash outlay to install an antenna and its accessories, and you will have unlimited access to your favorite TV channels. An upfront cost of approximately $250*for self-installation is all that’s needed.

This one-time investment is equal to about 2 months of a typical Pay TV subscription, so you will potentially save $1,250 in the first year, exceeding $4,000 in just 3 years.

* Estimated cost for an average customer performed installation: antenna, cable, mounting hardware, and accessories. (Professional installation is recommended for anyone without the knowledge or skill set to safely complete the project)

How to join the Cord-Cutting Revolution and enjoy free-to-air television

The simplest and most cost-effective solution to enjoy all available free-to-air content is to install a high-quality TV antenna. It is important to keep in mind that there is no single perfect antenna for all situations, and it is necessary to choose the antenna that best suits your location, depending mainly on the distance to the broadcasting tower and terrain.

To ensure maximum signal quality, we recommend choosing a smart antenna, as it will increase the accuracy in receiving the desired signal while avoiding unwanted interference. In addition, smart antennas automatically adapt the signal strength, without the need for additional hardware, receiving in real time the optimal signal level, regardless of the conditions of the moment. All Televes antennas are smart and are manufactured on automated robotic production lines with the highest quality control processes in our industry, guaranteeing our customers the best possible user experience.

Finally, there are other accessory items to help you get the most out of your TV antenna. You can watch free-to-air TV on multiple TV sets at the same time, with a single antenna, by adding splitters and amplifiers to your installation. You can also install multiple antennas and combine them with a SmartKom, to receive TV signal from TV stations in multiple directions, and increase the number of received channels. This is especially useful in rural or suburban areas where reception may be weaker and signals are transmitted available from several directions.

At Televes, we are passionate about helping to guide you in choosing the antenna that best suits your location: find out here.
