Apparently unbeknownst to some, television can still be had for free. While the federally-mandated 2009 changeover from analog broadcast signals to digital ones required television sets use a converter box, those who used the format shift as a reason to finally get out of the TV racket have had much to gain. That’s because the average cable bill currently tops $100 and it’s a monthly expense that all consumers can go without. The reason for ditching your cable TV service is evidenced by Clear TV review submissions from actual owners. That’s because this device improves signal strength and picture quality of broadcasts from major stations, including NBC. What’s more, NBC has pulled together a top-rate fall 2017 line-up that premiers on Monday, Sept. 25.
Among the highlights of the upcoming NBC fall season include the 13th annual iteration of “The Voice,” which will feature Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton and Adam Levin as judges. The military-themed drama “The Brave” will debut on Sept. 25 and focus on special operations squads. “This Is Us,” which received positive reviews for its first season, returns for another season on Sept. 26. Other TV staples that NBC will roll out during its fall season include “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Will & Grace” and “Dateline” at a 9 p.m. time slot on Fridays. Given that ABC’s “20/20” has long held court on Friday evenings at 10 p.m., broadcast TV viewers will be able to catch both programs.
“Our hope is to create the return of ‘Must-See TV’ on Thursday,” NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt told Variety magazine during a May conference call. “We took all of the advantages we have and tried to use them to grow and expand the lineup in as many ways as we could,” he later added.
What does this mean for cord-cutters who no longer have a need for cable TV? The answer is evidenced in nearly every Clear TV review: the money saved on disposable entertainment is well worth it. That’s because additional media reports on the topic show that for the price the average consumer pays, the channels they actually watch dwindle down to double digits from three-figure offerings. Sure, your children may want to watch cartoons and your love of movies will need to be satisfied somehow. Thing is, a high-definition television antenna will accomplish exactly that and the only obligation on your part is the one-time purchase of the item and not recurring monthly bills.
