Want free TV instead of a cable bill in the Atlanta area?  Solid Signal has everything you need to cut the cord in “the Big Peach.”

If you’re from Atlanta, you have plenty of reasons to be proud.  Georgia’s capital is designated as an “alpha” or “world” city.  This means that Atlanta plays an important role in the global economic system.  Your city is home to history as well as modern business, art, music, and culture.  And your airport - Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – is rated the world’s busiest since 1998.  The recent influx of movies and TV shows filmed in and around Atlanta have gained it the nickname “the Hollywood of the South.”  It’s easy to see why outsiders call your beloved city “Hotlanta,” even though no one from Atlanta uses that term.

As an Altantan, you know it’s not enough to say you’re “from Atlanta.”  If you claim the ATL, then you’re either inside the perimeter (ITP), outside the perimeter (OTP), or you live in Buckhead.  You also know that these distinctions are important, and you’re fiercely loyal to whatever part of the Atlanta metropolitan area you live.  No matter where you live in this sprawling metropolis of buildings, homes, and acres and acres of trees, we’re here to help you find the antenna you need to bring you all the free TV you can get.  Whether you’re ITP, OTP, or Buckhead, Solid Signal is here to help you cut the cord.

 

The Atlanta Area TV Market

The TV Market in Boston

Georgia is a big state, and the Atlanta TV market covers a huge area.  There are 51 counties in Georgia alone that make up this media market. There’s an additional county in North Carolina (Clay County), and two in Alabama (Cleburne and Randolph counties).  This makes Atlanta the ninth-largest media market in the U.S. Such a sizeable area means plenty of TV viewers.  Latest numbers estimate there are more than 4.3 million people over the age of 12 in the area.  Good thing Atlanta offers a wide variety of free local TV to suit the many tastes of all its residents.

*The Atlanta area has many low-powered TV stations not listed here. As a cord-cutter, you might be able to receive some or all of the programming from these stations, depending upon a variety of factors.

Cord-Cutting and Atlanta Sports Fans

Sports in the Boston Area

While cord-cutting offers more channels and better-quality reception, most media markets have blackouts on games.  This limits the amount of professional sports games you can see.  While this presents a challenge, Solid Signal can help Atlanta-areacord-cutters watch their favorite pro sports.  Check out our Atlanta Cord-Cutter’s Guide to Sports for ways to see the Braves, Falcons, Hawks, and any other professional team.

 

Your TV Antenna in the Atlanta Area

To cut the cord, you need a TV antenna. But you can’t just buy any antenna and get the best over-the-air TV reception.  No two TV antennas are the same, and no two over-the-air viewing experiences are the same.  If you’re considering cutting the cord, keep these things in mind:

  • How far you live from where the Atlanta area’s TV transmitters are located. 
  • The number of buildings, trees, and other obstructions between your home and the broadcast towers.
  • Which Atlanta channels are your favorites?  This is important when choosing a VHF, UHF, or VHF/UHF antenna.

Why are these factors important?  Each one can affect the quality of your OTA TV reception and the number of TV programs you receive.  We can help you determine whether you need an indoor TV antenna or one of three types of outdoor TV antennas.  To help you better understand the process, we’ve compiled this handy guide to match you with the best TV antenna in Atlanta.

Cut the Cord in Atlanta

A TV antenna in the Atlanta area means the most channels, best reception, and no cable bills.  Do you need another reason to get rid of cable?  We’re here to help Georgians enjoy all the free TV that only the right antenna delivers.  And if you’re moving to another TV market, we can help you there, too.  Call us at 877.312.4547 for antenna recommendations, installation guidance, and everything else you need to cut the cord.
