Antennas Direct is hitting the road again for our 2016 TV Liberation Bus Tour! If you know anything about us, we can’t stay still for too long. We get extreme wanderlust, a desire to take our bus and get out of town, visit the hidden gems of the United States. So we took that itch to get back on the road and liberate more Americans from pay-TV. And as an added bonus we are giving away a Sharp 50″ LED 1080p Smart HDTV Roku TV. We will be kicking off our bus tour with a visit to one of our favorite cities, Little Rock, AR. We will also stop in Macon, GA; Charleston, SC; Asheville, NC; and Baltimore, MD. See the list below for full details.

This year’s bus tour is in partnership with the NAB, TVfreedom.org and Sinclair Broadcast Group and we are excited to work with this powerhouse group.

Stay tuned for more info on the bus tour and to see updates from each city! We will be posting daily videos recapping each giveaway, and knowing our crazy bunch, you will want to stay tuned to see these updates.

Thousands of Americans Liberated from Pay-TV During the TV Liberation Bus Tour


Last month we embarked on a multicity Broadcast TV Liberation Tour, taking our shiny Antennas Direct bus back on the road to bring American’s the free local television they deserve. More than 2,000 Americans received free TV antennas at our tour stops in Albuquerque, Denver, Rapid City, Sioux Falls and Oklahoma City. With the use of these free antennas from our latest #ADBusTour, $3.6 million will be annually injected into the local economies. That’s a lot of money!


Even cold, bitter wind and heavy rain did not stop thousands of people from lining up, some overnight, to ensure they received a TV antenna. These people greatly value their access to local TV news including weather updates, emergency alerts and programming. We saw people from all walks of life waiting in line, and they were amazed at how much television they can receive with a TV antenna. The knowledge of how much money they would be saving with no monthly fee and the best high-definition picture drew huge crowds in each market. These hard-working people now have the opportunity to put some of their cash back into the community, instead of the wallets of pay TV CEOs.

This demand for broadcast television continues to increase as more Americans become aware of the growth in the programming. A recent study from Nielsen found that more than 650,000 US homes have switched exclusively to over-the-air TV viewing just in the last year. Those are our type of people!

In case you weren’t able to make it out to one of our #ADBusTour stops, here is a recap video showing the importance of TV antennas, and what a newly liberated life means to these cord cutters.

TV Liberation Tour Provides a Window into Your World

Line Two

You know what we hate? Seeing people throw away their money to the cable companies. Beyond money, people feel trapped by the cable companies, feeling like they have to pay for cable to get the shows they want. They feel like they are hostages in this abusive relationship with the cable company.

Since 2010, we have given away more than 15,000 free digital TV antennas throughout the country in an effort to liberate our friends from the evil known as pay-TV. We have partnered with TVfreedom.org, the National Association of Broadcasters and LG Electronics to provide consumers with access to their local TV station in crystal clear hi-def with a TV antenna from Antennas Direct. Not only are we giving away antennas, but we are educating thousands of people about the freedom they will experience when they cut the cord.

To give you a glimpse into the #ADBusTour, we pulled together a new video that captures the consumer excitement during the TV Liberation Tour stops. Take a look, those happy faces could soon be you and your neighbors!

Free broadcast TV provides more than 60 million Americans with access to local news, weather, emergency information and of course the broadcast TV shows we all love.

Do you want the TV Liberation Bus Tour to come to your city? Let us know! Fill out the form HERE or even better, reach out to your favorite local broadcaster and let them know you want them to liberate your town!

#ADBusTour Lets Freedom Ring in Chinatown, San Francisco

Gate Eclipse

Independence Day means a lot to us here at Antennas Direct. Not only because we are proud to be Americans, but also because we consider ourselves to be liberators. Installing an antenna is not unlike signing a Declaration of Television Independence. It means you are no longer a victim of the tyranny from cable television.

That’s why we are proud to announce the next stop for our TV Liberation Tour! We will be celebrating our country’s rich diversity and the diversity of relevant, hyperlocal broadcast content in San Francisco’s Historic Chinatown.

The first 300 lucky patrons will receive our latest and greatest antenna, the ClearStream Eclipse, a small, self-adhering indoor antenna with a range of up to 50 miles. The total estimated value of the antenna’s being given away in San Francisco is approximately $20,000.

Come on out and help us ring in the Fourth!

Clayton Hotel, 667 Clay Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94111 (on the street outside the hotel)

Friday, July 3, 2015, 9:00 AM (One antenna per household | first come, first serve)

Antennas Direct Bus Tour RECAP

We had a blast on the 2010 Antennas Direct bus tour antenna giveaway. We go to work with some great television stations and meet some awesome and grateful antenna recipients.

In the end it was all about giving back to the community, helping out people who may be struggling to make ends meet, and promoting high quality television antennas for over-the-air digital TV.

Check out the video recap of it all here. Thanks for a great year!

Fresno, California Loves Free HDTV – Even the Livestock!

It seems that no one can get enough of Free HDTV in Fresno, California. View the news clip from KMPH about the Antennas Direct antenna giveaway.

The bus tour is really about spreading the word about over-the-air FREE HDTV that is available to everyone. We have met people from all different walks of life that have shared their stories with us about everything from their television reception to their kids soccer games. In the economic downturn people are looking for ways to cut monthly bills and cutting cable is not really a sacrifice for many who have found that OTA TV provides crystal clear programming. And receiving a free high power antenna from Antennas Direct and local news stations is icing on the cake. We encourage people to talk to family and friends to learn about different ways to set up your TV antenna whether its with an antenna amplifier, connected to a computer, outside on the roof or all of the above.

Folks in Fresno, California have defiantly had antennas on their mind with the Antennas Direct bus tour making two stops in one weekend. The first at the Fresno Fair Grounds and the other the next day at Serrano’s Furniture. Check out the pics!

The Bus Tour Takes Tallahassee

Making our fourth stop on the 2010 Bus Tour, we visited the beautiful town of Tallahassee. Teaming up with local station WTXL we handed out antennas to the public. Adding to the excitement of the day, we were able to be part of the station’s first airing of their new morning show.

We were able to answer questions for some of the locals and give quality demonstrations of what over-the-air TV can do for them. Now it’s off to Orlando!
