Want to watch free HDTV in the Tucson and Sierra Vista TV market?  Solid Signal helps you cut the cord in southern Arizona.

Do you live in the “Sunshine Factory” known as the greater Tucson area?  If so, you live in a thriving and panoramic city located in the southwestern United States.  Tucson’s biggest employers include the University of Arizona and David-Monthan Air Force Base.  Many residents in the city and surrounding Pima County work for a variety of other technological and other sectors.  Do you enjoy Tucson’s flourishing arts and culture scene?  Your city is home to several large-scale events and fairs such as the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and the Tucson Festival of Books.  Tucson also has many museums and other cultural attractions that continue to draw locals and tourists alike.  No wonder why so many people are proud to call Tucson their home!

Sierra Vista is part of the Tucson media market and it might be where you live.  The city’s name is Spanish for “Mountain Range View,” which refers to the Huachuca Mountains that flank the Sierra Vista’s southwest side.  The city is the commercial center for Cochise County, due in large part to the presence of Fort Huachuca.  Other top employers include many professional scientific and technical services that have business contracts with the Army.  Sierra Vista also has many cultural and family-oriented activities that include the Cochise Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering, the Festival of the Southwest, and many other events.  These include film series, lectures, readings, and many other programs for children and adults.  There’s always something going on in this seemingly quiet little Arizona city nestled in the mountains.

*This media market has many low-powered TV stations not listed here.  As a cord-cutter, you might or might not be able to receive some or all of the programming from these stations, depending upon a variety of factors.

Cutting the Cord and Sports

Sports in Dayton

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 sports fans who want to see their favorite pro teams and enjoy free HDTV.  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 Tucson 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 Tucson.

 

Cutting the Cord in the Tucson Area

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.
