Introducing the Best Way to Find the Right Antenna for You

CCNewsLogo_RGBCord Cutters News is launching a new service to help you pick out the right antenna. will guide you to the right antenna by providing reviews of antennas and guides for getting the most out of your antenna and then it will list what kind of antenna you need.

All you have to do is enter your address, and will show you roughly how many channels you should get for both indoor and outdoor antennas. It will also show you where the towers around your house are located to help you find the best place to aim your antenna.

So how does stand out?

I know there are similar sites like AR but we think our site stands out in a few ways:

Very easy to understand reports that anyone should be able to use.

Shows primary channels like NBC in addition to subchannels so you can see every channel you should get.

Do you have a family member who may struggle to understand other similar sites? Please show them this site.

Where do we get the data?

Cord Cutters News has paid for a live feed from the FCC database. Every time you search, it will pull the most up-to-date information possible.

What areas do we cover?

Currently we only have data for the United States, but we are looking to add new areas soon.

Any cost? is 100% free!

We would love to hear your feedback! Please leave a comment here!

Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more news, tips, and reviews.

    I know you go by the FCC database but 31.3 isn’t here. Also why isn’t the Winegard FL5500A listed as a indoor antenna but the Mohr Leaf, which gave worse performance is listed. Do new people know the station by itself is -1?

    The location of WAVE (Channel 3, NBC aff.) Louisville is very misplaced. It’s not even in the correct state. In 1991, the station began transmitting its signal from a new broadcast tower in Oldham County; the 1,739 feet (530 m) transmitter tower (which is 70% taller than most television broadcast towers), which is the tallest structure in the state, cost $5 million to build and helped to improve WAVE’s signal coverage. It’s located just north of U.S. Highway 42, 1/2 mile west of the intersection with Highway 53.

      The location of the transmission towers comes straight from the FCC. If you think it is in error you would need to contact the FCC about that.
