*The Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville

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 Jacksonville Cord Cutter's Sports Guide helps you watch all your favorite pro sports teams.

 

Your TV Antenna in the Jacksonville 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 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 Jacksonville

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.
