Indoor vs. Outdoor Antenna
If you’re ready to cut the cord with your pricey cable company and explore FREE TV, you’ll need an antenna. But, which one is right for you?
Outdoor antennas are the ideal option to ensure a strong, uninterrupted signal. They are often mounted in a high location, avoiding obstructions from trees or neighboring buildings. If roof access isn’t available, they can be mounted from the ground using a pole.
Using a professional installer is highly recommended to ensure the safest mount and best picture quality.
Why Outdoor Antennas Are Better?
- Outdoor antennas are mounted at much higher heights so there are fewer obstructions (trees, hills, other houses, etc.)
- House walls and building materials can substantially weaken a TV signal which results in getting less channels and channels not consistently working.
- Outdoor antennas are larger and therefore will have better reception.
