Tech-Approved Deal: Winegard Heavy-Duty Antenna

If you’re thinking about cutting the cord, we’ve got something for you. It’s the Winegard Platinum TV antenna, and it’s one of our hottest selling products this month. This comes straight from Earlene Burden, the warehouse manager here at Solid Signal. When I asked her what was our hottest seller at the moment, she said, “This antenna is really moving!” One of her crew shouted “Which one?” Earlene told him it was the Winegard HD8200U, to which the warehouse employee replied, “I’m packing one up right now!” With so many of these units flying out of our shipping bay, we thought we’d take a closer look at why this TV antenna is so popular.

Get Free TV in Rural Areas

Living outside the city has its benefits. Open spaces, relatively empty roads, and plenty of wooded areas help set the mood for a peaceful, less hectic life. The only downside to these idyllic settings comes when you want to cut the cord. Those gorgeous trees and rolling hills can interrupt the TV signals being sent from transmitters miles away. If you want to cut the cord for free TV, you need a strong TV antenna that can receive signals over this terrain and distance.

Many rural dwellers are putting the Winegard Platinum atop their homes or strapping it to their chimneys. This TV antenna’s 69 elements (34 VHF, 35 UHF) pull in VHF, UHF, and FM/HD FM signals from up to 65 miles away. That’s one of the best reasons for cord-cutters outside the cities to invest in this antenna. Many rural communities are located far from TV transmitters, so this powerful antenna is what’s needed to reach out past the trees, terrain, and distances to bring you free TV.

Here’s another reason rural cord-cutters love this antenna: it’s durability. Its zinc-plated, steel construction offers maximum corrosion resistance. The antenna’s heavy-duty construction uses high-impact ABS girder design and its double boom construction provides extra strength and rigidity. These high-quality construction helps this antenna hold up against most weather conditions. What else do expect from a product that’s made right here in the USA?

The Winegard Platinum has a variety of features and benefits, which include:

  • Direct 75OHM coax connection
  • Fits masts from 1”-2” outer diameter
  • Turning Radius: 101 degrees
  • Traditional yagi design
  • High-gain reception that blocks interference
  • Comes with: antenna, mounting clamp, weather boot, and installation instructions

“How Do I Know This Antenna is Right for Me?”

That’s a good question, because no two antenna installations are the same. That’s why Solid Signal carries so many different types of indoor and outdoor TV antennas in our online inventory.

  • Match your installation with the best TV antenna and equipment from our online inventory.

This is why Solid Signal is the No. 1 source for antennas, equipment, and information for cord-cutters.

Cut the Cord with Solid Signal!

There’s no better time to cut the cord than now. Cable prices aren’t going to get any cheaper while free TV has been free since its inception. That won’t change, either. Your local TV channels have many sub-channels, which offers cord cutters a wide variety of free programming.

Do you still feel the need for your favorite national channels? Get the DISH AirTV Player with the Sling TV package. This streaming device connects to your TV antenna to put all your free local TV channels on the same menu as Sling’s national channels. This is a great way to get a huge amount of TV programming for less than what you’ll pay most cable TV companies.

Whether you need a TV antenna or want everything the AirTV Player has to offer, Solid Signal can help. The techs in our US-based customer service department are happy to answer all of your questions about cutting the cord as well as streaming with the AirTV Player.
