Do you live in Fresno?  Then you probably know that the word is Spanish for “ash tree.”  Your city gets its name from the many ash trees that line the San Joaquin River.  Fresno is California’s fifth most-populous city.  It’s made up of a variety of neighborhoods that include Downtown, Sunnyside, and the Tower District.  Each of these neighborhoods are home to Fresno’s ethnically diverse population.  The city’s top employers include Community Medical Centers and the City of Fresno, while agricultural production dominates the surrounding rural communities.  This includes Selma, the “Raisin Capital of the World.”  Your city also has a thriving cultural scene that includes performing arts and music, historic theaters, and a wide variety of annual events.  All this and more makes Fresno a unique city in central California. 

Located 43 miles south of Fresno, Visalia is the governmental center for Tulare County.  In its surrounding rural areas, agriculture drives the majority of the economy.  This includes grapes, olives, cotton, citrus, and livestock production.  In the city, Tulare County, Kaweah Delta Medical Center, and other corporations are the top employers.  Visalia is home to one public college – College of the Sequoias – as well as branch campuses of four universities, and three private colleges.  If you call Visalia home, you live in a unique, multicultural enclave that’s defined by its truly central Californian character.

*The Fresno-Visalia media market 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 Fresno

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.  We’re sympathetic to Fresno-Visalia sports fans who want to see their favorite pro sports teams.  Our Cord Cutter's Sports Guide helps you watch all your favorite pro sports teams.

 

Your TV Antenna in the Fresno-Visalia TV Market

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 transmitter locations.
  • 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 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.

 

Cutting the Cord in Central California

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.
