Is Greensboro where you make your home?  If so, you live in a city steeped in history.  Greensboro played a significant role in America’s Revolutionary and Civil wars.  The area also was prominent in the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.  Today, Greensboro enjoys a renaissance of sorts with development investment and commercial and residential construction.  Textiles, tobacco, and furniture remain the city’s primary economies, and there are a diverse amount of companies in located in the area.  A thriving economy and a huge variety of local sports teams are part of Greensboro’s unique and attractive character.  So is its arts, culture, shopping opportunities, and other attractions.

Perhaps you live in or near the city of High Point.  If this is the case, then you know that you reside in the “Furniture Capital of the World." It's called this because of the city’s long involvement in the furniture-making industry.  The semi-annual High Point Furniture Market brings hundreds of thousands of furniture exhibitors and buyers to the city, earning High Point another nickname, “North Carolina’s International City.”  Globalization has severely decreased High Point’s furniture industry, though the High Point Museum still showcases its “High Point’s Furniture Heritage” exhibit.  Today, the city is home to a diverse economy that includes bus manufacturing, distribution, banking, pharmaceuticals, and other employers.  

Winston and Salem were separate cities that became officially incorporated in 1913.  Like Greensboro, the twin cities played a part of early America’s rich tapestry of history.  Winston-Salem is home to the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, maker of Camel cigarettes.  Today, Winston-Salem is an interesting combination of historical preservation and modern development.  Many of its original buildings continue to be attractions for locals and visitors alike while its downtown area features many huge skyscrapers owned by the cities’ top employers.  Many movies have been filmed in Winston-Salem and its thriving arts and culture scene is host to many festivals and events.

*The Greensboro-High Point-Winston-Salem 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 Greensboro

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.  While this presents a challenge, we urge you not to give up on cutting the cord just yet!  Our Cord Cutter's Sports Guide helps you watch all your favorite pro sports teams.

 

Your TV Antenna in the Greensboro Area

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 Greensboro

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.
