Rabbit Ears & TV Antennas Making a Comeback

Who would have believed that in the digital age rabbit ears & TV antennas – absolute relics in the high-tech world – would be making a comeback. Strangely enough it is because of the digital age that these relics of days gone by are making a comeback.

More and more TV viewers are tuning into online-video programming. So why then continue to be ripped off by the cable companies who charge way too much for what they offer – 100s of channels and nothing to watch? If you’re embracing online-video programming, get rid of cable, put up an antenna and dust off those old rabbit ears.
Are consumers “getting with the program”? You bet they are. Antenna sales are through the roof, or should it be on the roof. Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Costco are now selling antennas. How much money can you save? The average antenna costs between $50 and $150. The average consumer cable bill is $91.44/month without the bells and whistles like premium channels and high definition. The savings are staggering.

It just goes to prove that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
