The Gift of Cordcutting: 3 Reasons to Cut the Cord

November 29, 2016

You’ve been considering it, but haven’t yet cut the cord with cable TV.

Here are the top reasons I think you should consider cutting the cord and giving your family a holiday gift that they will enjoy for years to come.

Enjoy FREE TV in HD

No lie!

You really can get all the major network channels: ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and PBS in high definition, free over air with a digital HDTV antenna.  

You can enjoy all the holiday specials you love like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (NBC), Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors (NBC), and tons of football all for free in HD.

Use TV Guide to find all the upcoming holiday program listings. There are also Android and iOS apps for TV Guide in the Google Play Store and the iTunes Appstore.

Why Mohu HDTV Antennas?

Quality built and Made in USA Mohu HDTV antennas makes over-the-air free TV available to people who have TV broadcast towers within a 60 mile range of their homes. 

Last year I gave a Mohu Leaf Metro Indoor HDTV Antenna ($19.95) with a 25 mile range to a friend for Christmas.  She lives in downtown Portland, Oregon and gets 40 channels for free over air!

Free over air TV offers programming includes major network shows in HD, sporting events (Olympics, Super Bowl, World Series… all were free over air), movies, documentaries, and both local and national news.

If you’re confused about which Mohu antenna is right for you, use this handy tool to cut the cord.

Set Up Is Easy

I’ve set up several TVs in my home to receive over air TV with Mohu antennas, and taught my 78 year old mother and her friends how to do it.

I promise, with or without my help, you can do it too!

How Easy Is It?

Once you attach the antenna’s coaxial cable to a HDTV, a channel scan will reveal what over air channels are available to you in your area.

If you’re not satisfied with how things look, try repositioning the antenna and doing another channel scan. Doing this generally resolves the problem of pixelated channel reception or missing channels.

Mohu antennas are omnidirectional, meaning they can receive over air TV signals from all directions giving you the best possible reception no matter what way the antenna is facing.

The antennas are inexpensive, small, thin and blend easily into most any decor.  Most of them can be easily placed out of sight behind a TV or bookshelf, and don’t require moving once you’ve determined the best location for TV reception at your location. The Leaf antennas can be painted to match your wall color too!

Sustained Savings When You Cut The Cord

Cordcutting can save you a lot of money.  For me, that’s been over $100 a month for several years now.

Yes, there’s the initial purchase of an over air antenna if you don’t already own one, and you may decide to purchase a streaming media device like the Amazon Fire TV Stick to view streaming media content.  However, other than the initial low-cost investment in an antenna, you can also simply enjoy FREE over air TV without any additional monthly cost too.

The peace of mind that most cordcutters derive from not being tied to a contract or getting a huge TV bill each month are the main reasons why cordcutting is on the rise.

According to Nielsen there were 116.4 million homes in the US were expected to watch TV during the 2015-16 season…about 9.5 million of those homes have switched over to free OTA TV. When you combine the money-saving free over air TV with low-cost streaming services which can always and always be cancelled or changed with ease, you have a winning combination.

Cordcutters have the ability to choose what entertainment they want, how to watch it, how much they want to pay for it, and if they want to cancel – there is no hassle!

Obviously I think cordcutting is the way to go, but if you still aren’t convinced it’s for you, take a look at 5 Reasons To Cut The Cord This Holiday Season.

Happy Holidays!
