IMG_4504I have had cable television for as long as I can remember. I also have had Netflix for a long time and I watch both fairly equally. We are always looking for ways to cut costs in our home and our cable bill would definitely be a good starting point. I didn’t have one of those new fancy digital antennas for my t.v. so if I were to cut my cable I would lose out on all of the local channels. So here comes 1ByOne to the rescue. They sent over a shiny super thin amplified HDTV antenna that has a great 50 mile range. It is super thin and can be easily mounted on the wall if necessary.

IMG_4617After getting my t.v. setup with over the air service a scan had to be done to find all of the channels. I was only anticipating 5 or 6 channels but to my surprise over 30 channels were found. That is really impressive. Along with 30 channels there is also an on screen guide so you can see what’s on all of them and see what is coming up. I’ll admit that most of the channels are a little lame, but there are a few gems available. Notably PBS Kids, both of my kids are fans of Sprout, and while it’s not exactly the same, they do show some of the same content.

The lack of sports programming, specifically Cardinals baseball and Blues hockey will probably help keep the cable boxes around for a little while longer, but I can definitely see using this antenna along with with some streaming options as a great solution to reducing costs.

If you’re looking to cut the cord and ditch your cable or satelite provider I definitely recommend checking out 1ByOne’s antenna. The HD clarity is great and the channel list is definitely worth the one time price for the antenna instead of a monthly price tag that could probably buy 3 or 4 antennas. Throw in Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime and you will have a nice television experience without a hefty price tag.

You can purchase a 1byone Shiny Super Thin Amplified HDTV Antenna on Amazon US or Amazon UK. Also be sure to follow all of 1byOne’s social media accounts to stay up to date on their latest product offerings as well as other cool info!

I'm a 40-year-old father blessed with two wonderful children: a 13-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son. My life revolves around my beautiful wife, who is the cornerstone of our family. Without her unwavering support, none of what I do would be possible. By day, I serve as a network administrator for a local school district, ensuring smooth operations in the realm of technology. During the evenings, you'll often find me engrossed in various creative pursuits, from illustrating books to crafting websites or composing music. But above all, my priority is spending quality time with my kids. Parenthood has been a profound journey of growth and discovery for me, and now, armed with a keyboard instead of a pen, I'm eager to share my experiences and insights with others.
