Growing up, we watched quite a bit of TV in the house – which seemed to be made even more amazing when cable came along. It felt like there was an endless amount of options compared to what our giant dish satellite could bring in.
Back then, we only got the major players, ABC, FOX, CBS, and NBC. When we upgraded to cable, we had dozens of channels to choose from. But as time went along, pricing went up and never stopped climbing.
The days of only a few channels over-the-air is long gone. With a modern cable antenna installation, you can watch high-definition cable TV without the monthly fee.
In Spring Grove (where our HQ is located), your TV antenna will bring in over 50 channels. In York and Hanover, you’ll get a few more. And again, all of this is without the monthly price tag.

People are always shocked when we tell them what they’ll get, and it definitely is surprising based on satellite dish offerings of the old days. Thankfully, times have changed! You can get way more without the monthly cable bill.
Antenna TV Channels Can Be Duplicated
In Spring Grove, we are actually able to get almost 100 free cable channels with our antenna. However, some of them are duplicated. For example, we have several FOX channels, but they are all from different affiliates. While the main blockbuster shows are all the same, news, local sports, and other weekend/weekday programming can be different.
Subchannels, as they are sometimes called, are a great way to stay-up-date on what’s happening in your direct community as well as regionally. Each FOX channel offers their own unique, niche content that you wouldn’t have the option to see on through a regular cable TV package.
Number of Channels Depends on Your Cable Antenna
Like anything in life, you sometimes get what you pay for. This can definitely be said about TV antennas. If you’re out in a more rural area, you might need a larger and more expensive antenna to get all the channels possible. However, if you are happy with the main, hyper-local stations where you only potentially get a few dozen, you can absolutely get a less expensive antenna that doesn’t reach as far. We are always happy to give our clients all the information so they can make their own choices.
