Cutting the Cord and Sports

Sports in Ft Myers

Cutting the cord limits the amount of professional sports you can watch on TV.  This is due to agreements between the various teams and TV networks.  We’re sympathetic to Gulf Coast sports fans who want to see their favorite pro sports teams.  Our Cord Cutter's Sports Guide gives you a way to enjoy your favorite pro baseball, basketball, football, and hockey teams after you cut the cord.  

 

Your TV Antenna in the Fort Myers-Naples 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 in Ft. Myers-Naples.

 

Cutting the Cord in the Gulf Coast

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.
