Scissors cutting through a TV shaped coaxial cableThe number of American households that are cutting the cable TV cord is growing every year. A study by eMarketer says that by 2017 there will be almost 6.5 million U.S. households that will no longer pay for cable television. Another 17.8 million households never paid for cable to begin with, according to the same study.

Let’s face it, with the number of streaming services out there, it’s difficult to justify the hefty monthly bills from cable and satellite providers. Services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon even have original programming on top of everything else you can stream. These services offer a less expensive alternative to cable and you can save hundreds of dollars a year.

In Australia, f you choose to join the trend and become a cable cutter yourself, you need to add a digital ready antenna to your system. A digital ready antenna will allow you to pick up local channels that will let you watch live TV for free. You might be surprised at how many free channels you can pick up with a digital ready antenna.

With a digital ready antenna you can pick up free to air (FTA) broadcast channels such as ABC, 7, 9, 10, SBS and their derivatives. Many popular television shows, along with sporting events and local news are broadcast on FTA television in High Definition. FOR FREE!
