Want to watch free HDTV in the Green Bay-Appleton TV market?  Solid Signal helps you cut the cord in northeastern Wisconsin!

Do you make your home in Green Bay?  Your city is an industrial center originally with strong roots in paper production.  This earned Green Bay the nickname of the “Toilet Paper Capital of the World.”  The city’s several meatpacking plants led to its other nickname – “Packertown.”  Green Bay’s economy is more diverse these days.  Humana, Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, and Schneider National are some of the area’s biggest employers.  The city also is home to the National Football League’s Green Bay Packers, which makes Lambeau Field a popular destination each fall.  There also are a variety of arts and cultural attractions to enjoy here.  All this and more help maintain Green Bay’s standing as an awesome Midwestern city. 

If you live in Appleton, your home is located in Outagamie, Calumet, or Winnebago county.  Like its neighbor Green Bay, the paper industry was the center of the city’s economy.  Today, there are plenty of opportunities for those who want to work in Appleton.  St. Elizabeth Hospital/Affinity Health and Thrivent Financial are two of the area’s top employers.  Despite its varied economy, Appleton isn’t all work and no play.  The city has plenty of fun attractions and activities to enjoy.  Some of these include the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center and Fox River Mall.  Popular regional events include the Flag Day parade and Christmas parade.  All this and more make Appleton a wonderful place to work, live, and play.

*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 Green Bay

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 Green Bay 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 Green Bay 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 Green Bay and Appleton.

 

Cutting the Cord in Green Bay and Appleton

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.
