The Cord-Cutters’ Guide to 2019 Holiday Programming

One of the most beloved things about the holiday season is gathering around the television with your favorite people to watch all the holiday specials, classic TV shows and movies, and, of course, big sporting events. Maybe there’s that one program that you just have to watch every year with your family, or perhaps it’s the parades that you and your friends always watch together. There’s something for everyone and all this great programming is available over the air on live broadcast television for free!

Don’t take a chance on missing any of your favorite moments due to spotty, unreliable reception from just any TV antenna. Our award-winning, patented line of ClearStream™ TV antennas deliver the most reliable, high-definition picture and sound available from broadcast TV. That’s important when you’re talking about your once-a-year chance to watch these shows throughout the holiday season!
