Cut the Cord in Los Angeles

Free TV in Southern California

Cut the Cord in Los Angeles

There is no better place to cut the cord than Los Angeles and the Southern California TV market.  Cord-cutters here enjoy the most channels in the most diverse media market.

Southern California is one of the most multicultural places in America.  Its TV market reflects this diversity.  The area has more than 100 program sources, including several Chinese-, Korean-, Vietnamese-, and Spanish-language programs.  Southern California also features retro programming including Buzzr, Get TV, Laff, This TV, MeTV, and more.  Most of these aren’t carried on cable or satellite.  There’s something for everyone and the only way to see it is with a TV antenna.  If you choose cable TV, you’ll get maybe one-third of the channels that you’d get with a TV antenna.

Cord-cutters get the perfect conditions for over-the-air reception in Los Angeles’s TV market.  Southern California is practically surrounded by mountains, which nestles the area into a “bowl.” Above this is a layer of smog, some days more than others.  These factors enhance broadcast signals by allowing them to bounce and easier to receive.  This lets everyone get more channels from greater distances.  You could be one of the many cord-cutters enjoying all this free HDTV.

The Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim Area

The Los Angeles area

The Metropolitan Los Angeles area is huge! It encompasses Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, San Bernardino counties, and parts of Riverside County.  Broadcasts from the mountains north of downtown LA serve cities and towns with millions of people.  TV antennas are the best way to address So Cal’s viewing needs.  These devices deliver the most channels with the best reception.  Best of all, there’s no monthly bill!  If you live in or around LA, it’s time to think about cutting the cord.

If you’re looking for a paradise of antenna TV, Los Angeles has more than 100 programs to enjoy! Here's your ultimate collection of Los Angeles TV listings:
