*The Salt Lake City TV market has many additional 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 Kansas City

While cord-cutting offers more channels and better-quality reception than cable, most media markets have blackouts on professional sports.  This limits the amount of games cord-cutters can watch on broadcast TV.  While this presents a challenge, Solid Signal has ways for cord cutters like you to watch your favorite pro sports.  Check out our Salt Lake City Cord Cutter's Sports Guide for ways to watch your favorite teams after you cut the cord.

 

Your TV Antenna in Salt Lake City

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 transmitters.
  • 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 Salt Lake City

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.
