The Man Cave Cinema Puts Antennas Direct to the Test

Man Cave Cinema Review

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You might have heard our exciting news that we recently launched 4 models of our ClearStream antennas to Best Buy and FutureShop locations across Canada. Whoohoo, yay Canada!

Our fellow advocate of OTA technology, John Zanettos, of The Man Cave Cinema, posted a review video today talking about the ClearStream 2V and the ClearStream Juice. Here is a quick synopsis:

  1. The C2V is TOUGH! It will withstand anything snowpocalypse can possibly throw at it.
  2. Excellent signal. John was able to receive all the channels from Toronto and Buffalo, NY, as well as two channels from neighboring city, Hamilton that he was not receiving before using the C2V.
  3. With over 100 ft of cable, John decided to use the Juice to ensure he didn’t lose any signal. And indeed, he was able to “Juice” up his signal.
  4. The a**hole cable companies make you pay for HD signal. With an antenna, you receive HD television for FREE, the way it’s been since the 50’s. Well put, John.
  5. “This is a highly recommended Man Cave Cinema product.”

Aww, we’re blushing! Thanks, Man Cave Cinema, for the kind words.

He knew he could juice up his signal with the ClearStream Juice! Check out his latest article to see how our ClearStream Juice was able to save the day.

How to Make 2015 the Year You Cut the Cord

This year, more television viewers are projected to cut the cord than ever before. Most of this is due to being fed up with the nasty relationship they have with their cable company. Here is a guide for everything you need to know to begin your liberated journey.

Our founder and CEO, Richard Schneider discusses the latest trends in cord cutting with McGraw Milhaven, a beloved radio personality on KTRS.

Just yesterday, we posted a blog about how millennials are shaping the cord-cutting lifestyle. Here is the second half of the KUSI program featuring all of the latest streaming devices. Take note, it starts with an antenna, the original streaming device.

Now that you are armed with the latest trends, here is an infographic that outlines the optimal use for an antenna based on where you live.

Why Millennials are Too Smart to Pay for Cable

Millennials blog

 

With the average cost of cable going above $100 per month, Millennials refuse to pay for television they don’t want. Instead they cut the cord. And, of course, cutting the cord starts with an antenna.

Don’t forget, you can juice up your Big Game with the ClearStream Juice Preamplifier.

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.
