Cord cutting and watching sports in Chicago can be tricky.  Read this if you want to cut the cord and still catch most Chicago Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks, and White Sox games.

At Solid Signal, we provide accurate information so that Chicagoans like you can make an informed decision.  You need to know that most pro sports teams’ games aren’t broadcast over the air.  This is the due to agreements between the teams and several TV networks.  This makes watching pro sports on broadcast TV all but impossible... until now.  Solid Signal provides options so cord cutters can see their favorite Chicagoland sports teams.
