Get Juice for the Big Game. Push the Limits of FREE TV.


twitter_header
It’s finally here – the Super Bowl. Football, elaborate and outlandish commercials, endless appetizers and drinking beer with friends. You know what makes the Super Bowl even better? Watching it for free!

Just in time for the most watched TV show in US history, we have released the ClearStream™ Juice™, a performance-enhanced UHF/VHF amplifier system for supercharging television signal strength. The low-noise amplifier capitalizes on the latest technology in digital broadcast television to overcome long distances, splitters and other obstacles.

What that means is that with this amp, the only thing more juiced than the players on the field will be the signal on your television screen.

Here is how Juice gives you an unfair performance advantage:

Unlike many amplifiers on the market, the Juice™ helps to improve signal strength while reducing noise and unwanted frequencies from cell and data signals. Juice™ is ideal for antennas located in dense suburban or urban areas where amplifiers have previously had performance issues due to close transmitter locations.

The ClearStream™ Juice™ ($79) is available starting today in our online store. More information is available at www.antennasdirect.com/juice.

Will the Seattle Seahawks take home the Super Bowl ring two years in a row, or will Tom Brady lead the Patriots to their first Super Bowl win since 2004? You don’t have to miss a moment of the big game with Antennas Direct and the ClearStream Juice.

Interested in learning more about Juice? Check out this excellent install video and review from Robert Garrett with his firsthand thoughts and reaction.

Thank you, Dish Network #StaytheCourse

Mr. Dish

Dear Mr. Dish:

We know it’s Christmas and all, but you really didn’t need to do this. We were already experiencing record-breaking sales growth before you threatened to black out CBS nationwide. Now, we get to figure out how to get one of our antennas into the stockings of your 14 million former subscribers.

In particular, we love the timing of your decision so near the holidays. It communicates your true intentions when it comes to the happiness of your customers. You’re like the Grinch who stole their Big Bang Theory.

And the longer you negotiate to squeeze a few more dimes out of broadcasters, the more American families will get fed up with your shenanigans, drop you and pick up a digital TV antenna.

We can see them now. In living rooms, sweater-clad with hot cups of cocoa. They will plug in their antenna and be kept warm in the glow of all those broadcast shows and NFL football. That same stuff you stole from them, they will be basking in full, uncompressed high definition goodness…FOR FREE.

Please keep this up. Our speed of antenna production is only outmatched by your ability to find ways to abuse your customers.

 

Stay the Course –

Antennas Direct

 

PS – We had found other ways to thank your other pay-television abusers like you in the past. Don’t feel left out, we can find other ways of thanking you besides a cake.

#ADBusTour: 1,000 Liberated Souls in Washington DC

AD Giveaway Line

Antennas Direct, in partnership with TVFreedom.Org and LG Electronics USA Gives Away 1,000 C2V TV Antennas in Washington DC’s Eastern Market 

Yesterday, in the shadow of our nation’s Capitol Building, thousands of people gathered in the Eastern Market. This is not uncommon in that neighborhood. Every weekend, the area hosts one of the most vibrant and diverse farmer’s markets in the country.

This crowd, however, was gathered for the chance to get their hands on one of the fastest growing video streaming technologies. No, they did not wait for an iPhone release or for the latest over-the-top video player. The throng of humanity patiently waited (some for hours) for a digital TV antenna.

AD lineup

Antennas Direct gave bestowed 1,000 ClearStream 2V model antennas to the first 1,000 households present for the giveaway which started at 1 PM. And though it was the largest giveaway the #ADBusTour has ever hosted, all of the TV antennas were gone in just over an hour.

Here are some of the favorite things we heard:

“We haven’t had TV at our house for months since we cut the cord. We are so so grateful.”

“Now I can watch the Redskins in better quality.”

“Wait, so I just plug this into the TV and I get high definition for free? Is there a setup fee? What’s the catch?”

After we heard so many grateful patrons, one thing became very clear to us: the magic of broadcast television is too good to be true, and the demand for a free, high-definition, over-the-air television is skyrocketing.

AD panarama

As part of a partnership with TVFreedom.Org and LG Electronics, this giveaway also featured a way for patrons to witness the C2V model in action. In the North Hall of the Eastern Market 14 LG flatscreeen televisions displayed just a sample of the almost 50 channels available for free, over-the-air in high definition. In particular, viewers were taken aback at the quality of the NFL broadcast on a 4K television. The picture quality was something to behold.

If you do the math, the impact of this giveaway becomes even clearer. In total, Antennas Direct dropped a $2 million stimulus package on the families in the Washington DC area. On average, cable subscribers in the area are paying close to $2000 per year for their cable bill. These 1,000 antennas can put $2 million back into the pockets of consumers. That is a stimulus that did not need the approval of the folks in Congress. It just took willpower, a tour bus and a love for over-the-air broadcast television!

Throughout the event, patrons had the opportunity to enter a drawing for a 42-inch LG Electronics HDTV – perfect for watching over-the-air television. When the drawing occurred, a phone call was made to Andre Miller. He didn’t pick up immediately, though. He was outside installing his new C2V on the roof!

Andrew Miller Wins LG HDTV

We love DC and the vibe of the Eastern Market neighborhood. We love people who love broadcast television! We can’t wait to come back!
