New HDTV Technology Cable Companies Don’t Want You To Know About

Cable and satellite TV can be a big monthly charge, and they’re going up around 6 percent per year. If you’re fed up paying high bills to watch TV or find that you don’t use all the channels you pay for, there’s a new “super” antenna that plugs into your TV that allows you to watch all of your favorite channels in HD for free.
The truth is, anybody who is paying for a cable or satellite subscription is getting ripped off. The average American spends $850 per year on cable or satellite TV alone and is set to increase to over $1000 per year in another 3 years.
That’s expensive and quite simply, a big waste of money.
Cable, satellite, and FiOS TV subscriptions can be expensive, but often we forget that broadcast TV is still free and features some of the most popular programs from major networks like CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, The CW, Univision, Telemundo, and PBS. Anyone who wants a cheap and easy way to get HD programming from major and local networks should give an indoor TV antenna a try. They’re also a good fit for people who can’t or won’t install a roof or attic antenna.
We tested it out for ourselves…
When we first heard about this new “super” HDTV antenna, we were a bit skeptical. So, we decided to buy one ourselves and test it out.
The antenna is supposed to work flawlessly in both the city and the country side, but for our purposes, we drove out to the country side to conduct our test.
Setup was fast and easy. We simply plugged it in to the TV and stuck the antenna to the window (you don’t have to stick it to the window, you can stick it anywhere you want).
We turned the TV on and found ourselves staring back at an incredibly clear channel in HD. We kept flipping through channels and to our amazement, every channel was crystal clear. Best of all, we received almost all of the most popular channels you would get with cable.
All in all, we were able to access 68 channels in 1080 HD. It was as if we were getting free cable or satellite TV.
Now, before you cancel your cable or satellite subscription, it is important to note that there were a few channels that we could not get with the antenna. But in the end, we were able to receive about 85% of the same channels and more importantly, they were the most popular channels that people actually watch.
If you want to save thousands of dollars and stop paying for cable or satellite tv, and don’t mind losing out on a few random channels you probably won’t even watch, you should
