RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - Jul 31, 2013) - Mohu, a leading provider of Over-The-Air (OTA) television antennas, today launched "TV-For-Free," an easy-to-use web tool that helps people quickly and accurately find all of the free network and local TV stations available at their home or business. The tool, which is accessible at www.GoMohu.com/TV-For-Free, is designed to help consumers determine if free HDTV is right for them. Accessing free TV over-the-air can help to eliminate the spiraling costs of paid cable and satellite television services.
Until now, searching for a listing of free broadcast TV channels in a specific location and figuring out the right antenna to buy was often a complex and inaccurate process. TV-For-Free makes it easy by providing an intuitive interface displaying available channels and sub-channels, including those broadcasting in high-definition (HD). The tool taps into data from the more than 1,800 broadcast towers located across all 50 U.S. states. In addition, the tool helps determine the right kind of antenna consumers will need in order to receive the channels they want.
"Twenty-two of the top 25 most popular television programs in the United States are broadcast over-the-air for free," said Mark Buff, co-founder and president of Mohu. "A quick search on TV-For-Free allows anyone to find the stations available to them, which is a great help when looking for ways to trim cable or satellite bills."
By simply entering their ZIP code or actual street address, people can view a map with detailed information on which stations are available and the distance of broadcast towers from their location. Plus, TV-For-Free offers an easy way to match people with the proper antenna to help them watch the channels they want. The tool was developed by Mohu, whose popular line of OTA HDTV antennas includes the highly-rated Mohu Leaf and SkyHDTV. Today, hundreds of thousands of people are using Mohu antennas to watch their favorite shows in high-definition for free.
TV-For-Free currently provides information on local over-the-air TV broadcast reception in all 50 U.S. states and will add coverage for Canada in the coming months. For more information and to access the TV-For-Free tool, visit www.GoMohu.com/TV-For-Free.
