Want free TV instead of a cable bill in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area?  Solid Signal has everything you need to cut the cord in “the Magic City.”

If one word could describe Miami, that word would be vibrant.  Its name alone conjures images of sunny beaches, bright colors, and a city pulsating with happening nightclubs, hotels, restaurants, and art galleries.  Truthfully, the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area is one of the most diverse geographical regions in the U.S.  The strip of land in southeastern Florida includes city, beachfront, and suburban residences sandwiched beautifully between the Atlantic Ocean and the swampy wetlands of Everglades National Park.  Few other areas in the country can boast such a diverse topography.

Speaking of diversity, Miami-Fort Lauderdale is a melting pot of multiculturalism.  Cubans fleeing Fidel Castro’s regime have made southeastern Florida their home.  So have many other immigrants from Central and South America.  The Miami-Fort Lauderdale area’s large Hispanic population is joined by military personnel, tourists, and native Floridians whose families go back generations.  And let’s not forget that the population of Broward County swells each winter as northern retired folk flock to the land of swaying palms and shuffleboard.  All of these people and more will find free HDTV programming to enjoy in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area.

 

The Miami-Ft. Lauderdale TV Market

The TV Market in South Florida

This is sizeable media market with plenty of TV viewers. It encompasses 7,492 square miles of the state’s three most populous counties – Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe – and the principal cities of Miami and Fort Lauderdale.  These three counties have a population of more than 4,660,000 people, and its TV transmitters are spread out over a handful of neighborhoods and areas.  This offers options to residents who want to enjoy the free HDTV.

*The Miami-Fort Lauderdale area has many low-powered TV stations not listed here. As a cord-cutter, you might 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 Miami

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

 

What’s Available in TV Markets Near Miami-Fort Lauderdale

One of the great things about cutting the cord in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area is that you have the opportunity to receive TV programming from other media markets.  For example, you might be able to pick up TV programming from the West Palm Beach TV market.  Your success at doing this depends upon the distance to the adjacent market, the type of antenna you have, and other factors.  If you’re interested in picking up TV signals from adjacent markets, Solid Signal can help.

 

Your TV Antenna in South Florida

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 Minneapolis-St. Paul

A TV antenna in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area means the most channels, best reception, and no 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.
