Don’t Get Scammed When You Buy an Antenna For Cord Cutting





Watching tv and using remote control

Watching tv and using remote controlWe have recently been getting a flood of emails about ads for very expensive antennas promising content like HBO and ESPN if you buy one. Often, the ads include claims that there is something special about this antenna that others do not have that allows them to access cable networks.

The worst part is often these companies are charging a very high price for these antennas.

The truth is no network like ESPN and HBO is free over the air with an antenna. Most Americans will get networks like ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and The CW for free, but networks like ESPN are not free with an antenna.

Be careful of strange websites you never heard of promising you something that sounds too good to be true.

An antenna is a great option for cord cutters giving access to a huge amount of legal content 100% free. Just be careful of where you buy them. If you don’t want to buy an antenna online, you can always go to a store like Walmart or Best Buy. You can also find out list of the best indoor antennas HERE.
