Austin was incorporated on December 27, 1839 and was the original capital of Texas.  The capital was relocated to Houston in 1841, but the Austin area continued as a flourishing community.  Today, Austin’s character might not reflect what outsiders think of as a “typical Texan city.”  It’s a major center for high tech. Many graduates from the University of Texas at Austin’s engineering and computer science programs work in the many high-tech companies in and around the city.  Austin’s economy is also supported by more than 80 pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.  The area also has a nationally-recognized arts and culture scene led by the SXSW and Austin film festivals, and Austin is also known as “Live Music Capital of the World.  By all accounts, Austin offers everything great about big city life from deep in the heart of Texas.

Austin is a great place to watch TV.  The transmitters of its many local TV stations broadcast a wide variety of free HDTV on many channels and sub-channels.  Most of these broadcast towers are located in the West Austin Antenna Farm atop Mount Larson.  With a TV antenna and some other equipment, you can enjoy all this free local programming.  It’s called “cutting the cord,” and many of your neighbors are doing it.  This is why you’re probably seeing TV antennas atop some of your their houses.  If you’re ready to enjoy free TV in Austin, we can help you cut the cord.

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

 

Cutting the Cord and Sports

Sports in Austin

Cutting the cord limits the amount of professional sports you can watch on TV.  This is due to agreements between the various teams and TV networks.  While this presents a challenge, we urge you not to give up on cutting the cord just yet!  Our Cord Cutter's Sports Guide helps you watch all your favorite pro sports teams after you cut the cord.

 

Your TV Antenna in Austin

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 your local TV transmitters.
  • The number of buildings, trees, and other obstructions between your home and the broadcast towers.
  • Which channels are your favorites?  This is important when choosing a VHF, UHF, or VHF/UHF antenna.

Why are these factors important?  Each 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.

 

Cutting the Cord in Austin

A TV antenna gives you the most channels and best reception, and it eliminates your cable bills.  Do you need another reason to become a cord-cutter?  Let us match you with the best TV antenna for your situation.  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.
