How To Get Free HD TV Reception in the Binghamton Area
Did you know there are a bunch of HD channels available in the Greater Binghamton area for free? It can take a bit of work but it may be possible to cut your cable or satellite bills to zero.
As streaming becomes more popular with Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus, rates and gimmicks with cable and satellite providers have increased, and so are the number of cable and satellite customers saying 'no thanks." As people are "cutting the cord," so to speak, TIME magazine reports the rabbit ear industry is growing to an all time high.
Rabbit ears have come a long way in style but for the most part, the technology hasn't changed since introduction in the 1950's. Prices range from $10.00 to $110.00 and can be found locally at retailers such as Radio Shack, KMart, Wal Mart and of course on line. Or you can build your own with a simple coat hanger.
To get reception with an indoor antenna, you'll most likely need to be 35 to 40 miles of a transmitter. But for greater reception, an outdoor setup on the roof, may give you reception up to 70 miles away. This is encouraging for people outside the Binghamton metro area.
