With its trademark Gateway Arch standing proudly in the skyline, St. Louis is a unique, diverse, and interesting Midwestern city.  The Arch is both a symbol of the city as well as the concept of the westward expansion of the United States.  Many people passed through St. Louis, and many people stayed to contribute to the city’s growth.  As a result, the greater St. Louis area is a multicultural community of blacks, whites, Hispanics, and Asians.  This diversity is enhanced by more than 70,000 former Bosnian refugees who came to the area since 1992. St. Louis’s economy is also diverse, with service, manufacturing, trade, transportation, and tourism taking equal precedence as top employers.  St. Louis is home to many companies including Anheuser-Busch, Boeing Defense, and Panera, as well as two pro sports teams.

St. Louis is a wonderful place to work and live, and it’s also a great place to watch TV.  Did you know that there are TV transmitters in Sappington, Shrewsbury, House Springs, and other areas?  These towers broadcast free over-the-air television for anyone and everyone who wants it.  If you live in the greater St. Louis area, all you need is a TV antenna and a few other pieces of equipment to enjoy all of this free TV.  This is called “cutting the cord,” and many people in the St. Louis area are catching on to it.  They’re tired of paying expensive cable TV bills, and they’ve found that a TV antenna delivers all their favorite local TV programming for free.  Could you be the next one in the Gateway City to cut the cord?

*The St. Louis 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 St Louis

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 such as yourself to see your favorite pro sports.  Check out our St. Louis Cord Cutter's Sports Guide for ways to watch your favorite teams after you cut the cord.

 

Your TV Antenna in St. Louis

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 St. Louis

A TV antenna in the St. Louis area means the 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.
