Want free TV instead of costly cable bills in the Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne TV market?  Solid Signal can help you save big when you cut the cord in Orlando.

The Orlando-Daytona-Melbourne media market is an interesting one indeed.  The area originally was inhabited by the Seminole tribe of Native Americans.  It later was settled by whites, where it slowly grew to become Florida’s largest inland city.  Today, Orlando has become home to a wildly diverse and vibrant population.  These demographics are further enhanced by the many retirees who come to the area from colder northern climes.  Tourists also make their mark on the population, both in Orlando, the “Theme Park Capital of the World,” and Daytona, aka “Spring Break Central.” Melbourne contributes many attractions including its zoo, parks, historic sites, museums, and annual arts and cultural events.

While there’s always something to do in the Orlando-Daytona-Melbourne area, residents here also like to relax.  TV viewing is still a popular pastime, though many in this area are spending way too much for their televised entertainment.  Are you one of the many who's still watching cable TV in Orlando-Daytona-Melbourne?  If so, then you’re paying too much.  In Bithlo, Christmas, and other places stand broadcast TV transmitters that send out free TV signal.  All you need is a TV antenna to receive it.  This phenomenon is called cutting the cord, and many in the Orlando area are severing the ties that bind them to costly cable bills.  Perhaps you’ll be the next Floridian to cut the cord?

*The Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne TV market has many low-powered stations not listed here. As a cord-cutter, you might be able to receive some or all of the programming from these, depending upon a variety of factors.

 

Cutting the Cord and Sports

Sports in Orlando

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 to see your favorite pro sports.  Check out our Central Florida Cord Cutter's Sports Guide for ways to watch your favorite teams after you cut the cord.

 

What’s Available in TV Markets Near Orlando?

Like many TV markets across the country, Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne has at least one nearby media market where cord-cutters can pull in additional programming.  If you live in the Orlando area, you might be able to watch shows from the Tampa-St. Petersuburg TV market.  This all depends upon where you live and what type of TV antenna you have.  If you’re interested in receiving additional TV programming from this adjacent media market, Solid Signal can help.

Your TV Antenna in Central 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 the 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 Florida

A TV antenna 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.
