Many people are looking for creative ways to save money. You may even be considering cutting the cord on cable TV, but still have questions. Your cable or satellite bill is the one utility you can do without, and there are solid content options for even the most frugal of budgets. I’ve highlighted questions on three topics with answers that may surprise you.

If instaladores antenas madrid cut the cord will I be left watching nothing but poor quality standard definition content?

You’ll be pleased to know that with an over-the-air antenna, much of the broadcast content is actually uncompressed 720p and 1080i High Definition (HD). The trick is getting the right antenna for the signals in your area. Antenna TV is not what you may remember from the 70’s at your grandparent’s house. Once you get set-up the picture quality from Antenna TV can be superior to what your cable company has been charging you for years. Keep in mind not all antenna broadcast content is HD, but many of the primetime network broadcasts are.

This all sounds great, but what if I live in a Condo, Townhouse or within a neighborhood with a Home Owners Association (HOA)? Will my HOA allow me to mount an outdoor TV Antenna?

The short answer is that by law your HOA can’t prevent you from installing an over-the-air TV Antenna. (Just like they can’t prevent you from mounting a satellite dish) Specifically Section 207 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 states that you are permitted to mount an antenna designed to receive local television broadcast signals. There are limitations to the rule, so if you are interested follow the link at the end of this article to learn more.

I’ve heard Antenna TV is a great way to get live sports, but can I get Monday Night Football on a TV antenna?

ESPN’s Monday Night Football and NFL Network Games are simulcast in local markets over-the-air to smart TV antenna owners, but only in the local home markets of the teams playing. Check the local network affiliate listings online a week or two prior to the game to find the Antenna station that will be doing the simulcast.

Under ideal conditions (this is not common) some antenna owners may even be able to tune in out-of-market live sports or games that have been blacked out locally. This generally requires direct line-of-sight and a large directional outdoor antenna. If you live between two metro areas, you may be able to target signals from either city.

We recommend pairing your over-the-air TV antenna with a streaming to TV device to give you the broadest selection of TV and movie entertainment content. Happy cord-cutting!
