#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!

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.

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!

Toledo Antenna Giveaway: A Huge Success for Over-the-Air

It was 5 AM on an unseasonably cool October morning when the saviors of over-the-air television rolled into the Lucas County Fairgrounds in Toledo, Ohio. It was still dark and the headlights passed over a crowd huddled near the entrance. Some had been there since 2 AM. They smiled and waved at the Antennas Direct bus as it passed by. Finally, they thought, a chance for free television.

The Antennas Direct touring bus roared past them and settled in a nearby field to prepare for its latest stop along its giveaway tour. By partnering with local broadcasters, the touring bus is a chance to preach the gospel of over-the-air television (something that 80% of Americans still are not aware of).

The local NBC affiliate WNWO was already there and had staffed the giveaway. The president of Antennas Direct, Richard Schneider conducted live interviews with WNWO’s Ashley Moser while hundreds of antennas from St. Louis were made ready for a new Toledo home.

“When we do these giveaways, it is less about Antennas Direct and more about the good news: you can receive over-the-air television in HD absolutely free with an antenna,” says Schneider. “We are thrilled that local broadcasters like WNWO care enough about their viewers to let them know about over-the-air. That is what it’s about.” Toledo Bus Tour

Soon a large crowd had gathered. More than 600 vehicles had gathered in the lot as the giveaway started. As viewers received antennas, there were some tears and countless “God bless you’s.” With the rising cost of paid TV, many Toledo residents (and others across the country) have cut television from their budget. So, for some, this meant an evening’s entertainment with their family for the first time in a long time.

At the end of the day, over 300 people were able to receive free television. And countless others were made aware of the good news.
If you would like the Antennas Direct bus to visit your neighborhood or if you are a local broadcaster who wants to spread the good news of OTA, please contact Jeremy Nulik – Jeremy@kolbeco.net.
