Watch Week 16 NFL Action on Your TV Antenna

NFL Antennas Direct 16

Each week we bring you the latest guide to watching the NFL for free. The following is the guide for Week 16.

There’s a reason the National Football League (NFL) still broadcasts the Super Bowl on over-the-air, free broadcast. That’s because the best way to watch the biggest game of the year is on the unadulterated high definition you get only from a TV antenna.

Thanks to NFL’s commitment to TV networks, there are multiple pre- and post-game shows and multiple gamecasts on NBC, CBS and Fox. So whether tailgating or in the comfort of your home, the best way to catch each weekend’s gridiron action is with a TV antenna.

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!

#ADBusTour: Hundreds of Toledo TV Viewers Liberated

AD instagram

Blustery winter weather was the top story in Toledo, OH today. And, much like the reliable, high-definition broadcast signals we love, Antennas Direct and WNWO-TV were not swayed by the bitter elements. Instead, hundreds of Toledo-area families were liberated from pay-television and equipped with free TV antennas.

The giveaway was held on the Wood County Fairgrounds in Bowling Green, OH on the morning after the Glass Bowl, a storied football rivalry between the Bowling Green State University Falcons and the nearby University of Toledo Rockets (UT won the chilly contest 27-20).

And unlike the weather (12 degrees F and 25 mph North winds), the locals’ spirits were enthusiastic and warm. Some gathered as early as 4 AM to wait in their heated vehicles eager to bask in the glow of full high-definition broadcast television.

AD Bus Tour 2

With the holidays around the corner, gratitude was on the faces and in the voices of the residents as the antenna giveaway began at 7 AM.

“Now I can watch Jeopardy on my shop television!”

“It’s going to be a better Christmas this year!”

“My wife and I are going to get along better because now I can watch the shows I want to watch for free!”

In total, all 300+ antennas were given away to Toledo-area viewers by 9 AM. Special thanks to Richard Stewart, Kim Degiulio, Jim Blue and the rest of the WNWO team for both their enthusiasm and their commitment to over-the-air technology.

AD Bus Tour 3

NOW: We’ve packed up the TV Liberation Tour bus and are gearing up for our biggest event yet! In partnership with TVFreedom.org and LG Electronics USA, we will liberate 1,000 area families in our nation’s capital on November 23. More details on the event at the Eastern Market in Washington, DC can be found here, here and here.

See you on the road!
