Becoming a cord cutter can take a bit of work and result in a lot of questions. The good news is being a cord cutter is easier than you may think, especially if you take a bit of time to do some research before you ditch the cable bill.
One of the common questions I get is do I need an antenna for every TV. That is a tough question. The answer is yes and no. You can have one antenna work for every TV; however, it will take a bit of work.
How I Use One Antenna for Multiple TVs
I use a Tablo DVR to not only record my shows but to also stream my antenna live to all of my TVs through its apps on many popular streaming players such as the Fire TV and Roku. That allows me to not only have a DVR, but also I don’t have to do any wiring to watch one antenna on all my TVs.
If you are looking for more of a hard-wired option, you could use a splitter and run wires through your home. Or if you are not using your home’s cable lines you could tie into them; however, if you have cable Internet it could cause an issue with using the cable lines for your antenna.
I often hear that people use a handyman or handywomen service to come to their house and set it up for them.

Yes, it is possible but if you have a really strong signal in your house and an indoor antenna works for you, the least expensive way may be to put an antenna on each TV. Having multiple antennas is something to think because Tablo costs $200 and hiring someone is not cheap.
