Tilt T.V.

Has anyone heard of or used this....it is a cable that brings you many T.V. stations and no fee, cost is $36.00 (one time).
I am thinking of trying it as my carrier keeps going up in price, would like a personal endorsement.

Irene, is that a device that you hook up to your TV and then you get all the "over the air" tv channels for free?? If so, you won't get your regular cable channels, but may get lots of HD channels that interest you. Have you thought of getting a ROKU or similar streaming device for your TV?? It connects to your house WiFi and then you get TONS of various channels. One time fee for the ROKU device....mine is a ROKU stick that I got at Walmart for $35 a few years ago. They do range in price from $35-$100+ depending on the features.....sorry, got diverted there. But anyhow, if the TILT TV is something you hook up to your TV, you will get "over the air" or OTA channels, and not your regular channels. I also have OTA antennas hooked up to all our TVs as well. I get about 40 channels, all HD, on each TV. Hope this helps somehow!
I found their website. It is an antenna that claims a range of 30 miles, so you need to be close (I'd say 15 miles) to the TV station broadcasting tower. Be sure that your have a TV that can tune to off-the-air broadcasting channels, including the HD sub-channels. For instance, not only channel 10, but 10.1, 10.2, and 10.3 and be aware that the sub-channels (10.2 and 10.3) are often broadcast at lower power than the main channel (10.1). Virtual channel 10 actually broadcasts on UHF channel 34, but that is getting into the details. Look at the manual that came with your TV to see what it can tune to.

Edited to change 10.. to 10.1

Irene - You can also check out alternatives, such as Hulu, Pluto, Tubi, Sling, etc if you're considering cutting the cord. We dropped cable a year and a half ago and don;t miss our $200 Spectrum bills at all.
Full Stop. I know, at least I think I know, that you stopped cable TV last year. BUT, you probably kept the actual cable so that you would have internet access. Without internet access, you can't watch any of those things. It is possible, that you have unlimited data on your cell phone and manage to connect your TV to a WiFi hotspot on your phone, but that is a little different than just advising someone to "drop cable". You probably kept your cord, just not cable TV.

Irene, if you got a Roku and hooked it up to your wifi, you could then get something like either Directv Now or Sling, that works over the Roku and you do get cable channels with that. A lot less expensive than regular cable. Plus all those free Roku channels! So you would drop your cable and keep your internet and steam through that using a Roku, or similar device. Then you don't need to worry about being near any tv towers, like you do with the over the air antenna.
The advise people are giving you is to keep Spectum internet (which is a cable that comes into your house). You could drop Spectrum cable TV (which is a box that goes between the cable and your TV). You are probably paying for some type of bundle of Cable TV, internet, maybe phone, maybe security. In theory, you could drop everything except for Spectrum internet. If Spectrum doesn't currently supply you with a WiFi router, you will need to buy one. You would need to buy Roku or something else to go between your internet and your TV. you could buy an internet phone (usually called VOIP = voice over internet protocol), and you could buy a security system designed to connect to your internet.

myst4au - Stopping cable tv service is different from paying for internet service. We dropped our 200+ channels and our land line phone service with Spectrum and now pay ~$60 for internet only. Internet is available thru various providers - ISP. We could actually spend less for internet only, but hubby and I are heavy users of bandwidth, so we have the more expensive plan.
We might be in violent agreement, except for one point. I have no idea how I could get broadband wired internet in my house without using the franchised cable provider. MAYBE, I could get DSL from the legacy landline company, but I don't even know if that is available, and IMHO, DSL is a slow dinosaur. I could buy satellite internet service, but that is expensive. When 5G becomes a reality, I might truly be able to shove Comcast out the door, but until thenk, I thin that they are my only option for broadband internet to my door. Am I missing something?

Not advice. Just more of the same. We purchase internet for ~35/month. We pay separately for our phone services. We do not need a bundle because we do not have landline and do not watch programmed television. (We have a set and watch old stuff, which is available for cheap or free. We are frugal dinosaurs.)

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. - Terry Pratchett
myst4au = do a google search for your geographical area. just use your zip. you don't have to give any personal info to see what providers are in your area. you might be pleasantly surprised.
I did as you suggested. There are two main providers of residential connectivity in Camden County, NJ, Comcast and Verizon FIOS. Comcast claims to provide service to 100% of the county, and Verizon says that it covers 66% (and 87% of my zip code [I have posted elsewhere that my zip is 08021] which covers 5 different municipalities). A third one, Birch Communications, might serve me, but I didn't bother looking since their top speed is 1 Mbps compared to 400 Mbps for Comcast and 940 Mbps for Verizon if Verizon happened to serve my address, which they don't. There are two satellite internet providers. And that is it. As I said, if I want internet connectivity to my house, I am sadly limited to Comcast.

Good to know. I re - checked my area last night and we found that Frontier now serves as - for less. I am not loyal to an ISP.
