Want to watch free TV in the New Orleans area?  Solid Signal helps you save money by cutting the cord in NOLA.

Do you live in one of the 14 counties that make up the greater New Orleans area?  Whether you call it the Big Easy, Crescent City, or NOLA, your city is rich in history and teeming with excitement.  The French Mississippi Company founded the city on May 7, 1718.  With the fleur de lis as the city’s symbol, the historic French Quarter, and more, the French influence continues to thrive in NOLA today.  The people of New Orleans are known for being fun and friendly.  You’re also a resilient lot.  After Hurricane Katrina ravaged the area in September 2005, many residents threw themselves into the many efforts to help restore their neighbors’ homes and return the city’s magnificent glory.  You all did a wonderful job! 

While New Orleans’ economy is diverse, its $5.5 billion tourist and convention industry is its biggest.  Why?  Because the Big Easy continues to be a red-hot destination for fun seekers everywhere.  The city’s annual Mardi Gras parade and parties are legendary, and there’s plenty of festivity up and down Bourbon Street.  New Orleans is unlike any other city in America... or anywhere else for that matter.  People will keep flocking here year after year for its amazing variety of live music, one-of-a-kind attractions, and all that wonderfully delicious cuisine.  All this excitement and more make the Crescent City one wild, unique, and marvelous city.

*The New Orleans 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 in NOLA

Sports in New Orleans

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 New Orleans Cord Cutter's Sports Guide helps you watch all your favorite pro sports teams.

 

Your TV Antenna in the New Orleans 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.

 

Cutting the Cord in New Orleans

A TV antenna gives you the most channels and best reception, and it eliminates your cable bills.  Do you need another reason to cut the cord?  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.
