Cut the Cord, Phoenix!

Free TV in the Phoenix Area

Want free TV instead of costly cable bills in the Phoenix area?  Solid Signal can help you save big by cutting the cord.

Today, Phoenix is the capital and largest city of Arizona, but it didn’t start out that way.  It was settled in 1867 as a small agricultural community.  Although the area has a dry, desert climate, its canal system from the Salt and Gila rivers allowed farming here to thrive.  Phoenix was incorporated as a city in 1881, and it experienced its biggest growth explosion after World War II.  This led to the area growing to a population of more than 1.5 million and the growth didn’t stop there.  By 2010, Phoenix became America’s sixth-largest city.  Whether you’re a native Phoenician or are one of the many who’s moved there, you’re part of a very diverse and cosmopolitan community. 

Today, Phoenix is known for a variety of wonderful things to enjoy.  Phoenix is renowned for its Mexican cuisine, as well as its wide selection of dining opportunities from all over the world.  Its performing arts centers, theaters, museums, and galleries make Phoenix a center for the arts in the Southwest.  The area’s connection to the American Old West makes Tombstone, the Painted Desert, and other areas popular tourist destinations.  With so much to do in the Valley of the Sun, why bother paying for cable TV?  Each month, Solid Signal can put $100 or more back into your pocket once you cut the cord.

*The Phoenix 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.

Cord-Cutting and Phoenix Sports Fans

Sports in the Phoenix Area

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 cord-cutters can see.  While this presents a challenge, Solid Signal has ways for cord cutters such as yourself to watch your favorite pro sports.  Check out our Cord-Cutter's Guide to Sports in Phoenix for ways to watch your favorite teams after you cut the cord.

What’s Available in TV Markets Near Phoenix?

The TV market in Phoenix is unique in that it’s not one that’s surrounded by many other large markets. Still, if live in the Phoenix area and want to watch programming outside your TV market, the Tucson media market is your best bet. Depending upon where you live and the type of antenna you have, you might be able to enjoy Tucson’s TV stations.

 

Your TV Antenna in the Phoenix TV Market

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 Phoenix

A TV antenna gives you 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.
