Digital over the air TV channels
One of the best things to happen for cord cutters in the last 10 years was the shift digital over the air TV. As a result of digital broadcasting, cord cutters get even more channels for free.
So, what is digital over the air TV? In short, it works just like old-fashioned TV, which used an antenna in order to get TV channels. Digital over the air TV brings you great HD TV free with an antenna (if you do not have an antenna, check out our guide to over the air TV antennas).
The difference to the end user is their ability to receive not just one channel per number on their dial but up to five different channels per number. With digital over the air TV, not only will you get NBC, ABC and CBS, but you will likely get the CW Network and many other stations for free.
On average, cord cutters who use an over the air antenna get about 48 channels for free. Are you missing out? Remember, cord cutting doesn’t have to look or feel exactly like a traditional cable package. Pair an over the air antenna with your preferred streaming service (like Netflix or Hulu) to get all your favorite shows.
