Cord cutters need outdoor TV antennas to pull in their local television channels over the air. Outdoor television antennas will capture digital TV signals sent from dozens of miles away. They are able to pull in signals with high definition video quality. Understand that some outdoor TV antennas will only be able to pull in UHF signals. This will work for most common local broadcasters. You may have some VHF stations in your area, though. If so, you may want an antenna that can handle both types of signals. If your home is in an area that has a lot of tall buildings or trees, the HD signal may be weak. In this case, look for an outdoor TV antenna that is a directional model. This allows you to “aim” it at certain signals.
