Does TV Free Way Really Work?

Does TV Free Way Work?With the high cost of living today a lot of people are looking for ways they can save a few bucks. So is it possible to really reduce your cable bill by resorting back to using an antenna like the TV Free Way is reporting?

Overview
TV Free Way is an antenna that you connect to the back of your television. By doing so you are supposed to be able to bring in both UHV and VHF broadcasts. This means that you could watch your favorite television programs without having the high costs of a cable bill every month.

The Claim
The company claims that the TV Free Way antenna can easily be hooked up to the back of your television. However, in other parts of their promo they are saying that you may have to move the antenna around in the room to get the best reception. For example, you may have to put it nearer to a window.

The Hype
A lot of people are really tired of the high costs of cable, and are looking for ways to reduce their monthly bill. Some are doing this by reducing the packages or bundles that their cable service provider offers. Others that are on a really tight budget are simply cutting their cable off, and going without television and perhaps using it for watching DVDs only. Having an alternative as cheap as what TV Free Way is offering may be a great solution and this is all the hype they need.

The Cost
The cost for TV Free Way is $14.99 plus $7.99 for shipping and handling with a 30 day money back guarantee. If you want to add an extra $7.99 to your order you will get a second one free.

The Commitment
You are going to have to no doubt make some sacrifices if you decide to go back to the antenna style for watching TV. One of the big factors will be reception, and chances are you are not going to get as clear a definition as you have been used to. Then again this will depend on which broadcast you are watching and your location in regards to interference.

Evaluation
It is really ironic to think that maybe history is repeating itself here. Some might remember their grandparents having a television that used rabbit ears to gain reception. Or at one time driving along and seeing a huge antenna running up the side or on top of many houses. Then when cable came alone these pretty well became obsolete. A lot of people think that any form of antenna is now useless, but this doesn’t seem to be the case.

Final TV Free Way Review

We’re going to give the TV Free Way a Try/Buy rating. There are so many variables when it comes to television reception that it would be difficult to rate this product any higher at the current time. It appears to be new and as such there is no feedback on it as yet. The one thing that we were concerned about is that none of the promo material outlined the radius in which the TV Free Way would work.

Our Recommendation
If you are looking for a cheap alternative to cable perhaps for your cottage or in need of it for your RV then you may want to check out TV Free Way as a viable option. If you are thinking about it for home and are going to cancel your cable provider then maybe you want to do some research and comparison shopping for antenna’s before you settle on one. Of course there are alternatives to watching regular broadcasts. A good example is the Google Chromecast.

What do you think? Does TV Free Way work or not?

Really? How do you write a review of a product without ever actually using it?? Is this site a total sham?
I wish I could comment on this thing but I never bought one either. I’m using an antenna mounted to the roof because that is what works best.

I bought a clear-tv antenna, it was ok but it needed to be connected to wi-fi or internet to work. I have a old tv so i went back to antenna and digital box. ‘tSaw this tv free ad in magazine and wanted to see if anyone else had a comment. It doesn’t say anything about internet.

What a completely worthless website.

I just read 9 paragraphs that amazingly said nothing at all.

I especially like this part:

“The Cost
The cost for TV Free Way is $14.99 plus $7.99 for shipping and handling with a 30 day money back guarantee. If you want to add an extra $7.99 to your order you will get a second one free.”

That’s like a gas station clerk telling you if you give him $20, he will let you fill up your car for free.

I bought very expensive HDTV antenna ( $ 60 ) . It Gave me 11. Channels. Only 1 channel was watchable. What makes you think your antenna is any better ? Tell you what . Send me your product . Let me try it . If it works , I’ll send you a check for $50 bucks. How does that sound ?

Basics with Antennae:
1) Higher is better

2) Outdoor mounted better than indoor with interference of walls, siding, other electric devices, etc.

3) You can build an efficient antenna out of nothing more than wire clothes hangers, a couple pieces of wire, and of course some screws and washers to mount to a mast. PVC would be preferred mast, But I mounted to a piece of wood…still working well after 2 years. Better than any commercially made antenna. see http://www.diytvantennas.com/bowtie.php for ideas!!!

There are many websites for DIY antenna building! 4 Bay Bowties work well, but if you live further from transmitters you can build an 8 Bay version. good luck to all

BUYER What a waste of money!!!! Even though they say 100 % guarantee a bunch of BULL. My husband was upset that I fell for your scam. When I called for a REFUND I was told that I had to pay for shipping to send it back. I said no way. The guy said I can give you a $5.00 refund and keep the antennas. I said I don’t want your crap. He said give it away. BUYER BEWARE IT’S A SCAM!!!!

DO NOT BUY! This Iis complete garbage!!!! You will get about 3 channels and 2 will work but Iif you move the antenna a cm you will fuck it up and will not be able to put the antenna where you want it. It will probably only work dangling from the bottom of your TVIif that’ the only way the channels pick up you stuck with it. Can’t belive they are allowed to trick ppl into spending money like that… smfh!

Remember the golden rule of “you get what you pay for”? I have been involved with radio and TV for over 40 years, and you would most likely be better off bending a wire coat hanger into some sort of antenna behind your TV than buying this thing. What you will get is about 2 cents worth of wire embedded in a device they call a “TV key”. The whole thing probably cost the company 25 cents to produce. Like everything else that Bulbhead sells, they depend on their scam of “We’ll give you another one absolutely FREE… (just pay a separate fee)”. Bulbhead seems to have the market cornered on this scam. The “separate fee” is usually attributed to “shipping and handling”. The problem is that the “fees” are several times more than what it would actually cost to ship the item. Even if you are dissatisfied with the item, these “fees” are non-refundable. If the item costs $14.99 and the shipping and handling is $7.99, the “separate fee” for the “free” second item is another $7.99. So you are paying Bulbhead almost $16.00 in “separate fees” which is non-refundable even if you return the two items. In reality, you have paid for the two items even if you return them for a refund. That is how this scam works.

I ordered 2 of these antennas to get the 2nd one “free”. It has been almost 3 weeks and I STILL have not received them!!! After reading reviews on this product (which I should have done first!!!), I am already greatly passed off and not satisfied with their service. When, and IF, they show up, you can bet your sweet bippy I will at least try them. But from what I have read, I am not expecting much. And if they suck, I hope that twerp that pushes this product on the TV as well as the poor souls who got suckered in to working for this company,well, I hope they can sleep well at night knowing they ripped off countless numbers of honest, hard working and in my case, disabled people who are living on fixed, deplorably low incomes.

I have one of the old outside antennas that is attached to the house. Would this type antenna work on my HDTV?

I absolutely love this antenna! I have 6 of them!! I have purchased other antennas & didn’t even get local channels. This antenna is worth much more than they sell for. I will probably be dropping satellite service soon. No need to waste money for tv that slowly gets raised more & more over time!
