*The Hartford-New Haven TV market has many low-powered stations not listed here. As a cord-cutter, you might be able to receive some or all of this programming, depending upon a variety of factors.  

 

What’s Available in Markets Near Hartford?

One of the best things about the Hartford-New Haven TV market is that there are some other TV markets nearby.  For example, if you’re located in the northern parts of this media market, you might be able to pick up OTA TV channels in the New York City, Boston, Springfield, MA and Providence, RI TV markets.  What you receive depends upon where you live and what type of TV antenna you have, among other factors.  Give us a call at 877.312.4547 so we can help determine if you can receive these additional channels with your TV antenna.

Cutting the Cord and Sports

Sports in Nashville

While cord-cutting offers more channels and better-quality reception, most media markets have blackouts on professional sports.  This limits the amount of games cord-cutters can watch.  While this presents a challenge, Solid Signal has ways for cord cutters such as yourself to see your favorite pro sports.  Check out our Cord Cutter's Sports Guide for ways to watch your favorite teams after you cut the cord.

 

Your TV Antenna in Hartford

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 help match you with the best TV antenna.

 

Cutting the Cord in Hartford-New Haven

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.  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.
