Sick of paying for hundreds of channels you don't need? Ready to ditch cable and watch HDTV for free?

Great, you're ready to join the Cord Cutters movement.

Welcome to Mohu's Cord Cutting HQ. You'll find everything you need to get started and free yourself from that cable or satellite bill.

What is cord-cutting?

Cord cutting is the process by which cable or satellite customers, frustrated with escalating prices and subpar customer service, decide to pull the plug on expensive monthly TV bills. 94 of the top 100 television programs are broadcast FREE over the air, so many people choose to axe paid TV in favor of free over-the-air broadcasts.

That's where Mohu's Cord Cutting app — Untangle.TV —  comes in. Tell Untangle.TV what you want to watch and you'll get a custom cord-cutting solution and tell you how much you'll save compared to your current cable or satellite bill.

Depending on what's broadcast in your area, you'll soon be able to watch popular national TV networks and local TV shows at no cost. With Mohu's line of HDTV antennas, you no longer have to pay high monthly cable or satellite bills to enjoy your favorite shows and live sports.

Even if you're already streaming content over the internet, a Mohu antenna will complete your cord cutting experience. Streaming content doesn't cover live TV events, but Mohu antennas can pull in all of your local news, weather, sitcoms, kids and sports programming, including the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the NBA Finals and the World Cup, with NO monthly contract or bills.

After the Digital TV (DTV) transition was finalized on June 12, 2009, television stations converted to an all-digital broadcast that offers some of the best picture quality available anywhere.

How does OTA TV work?

The broadcasting station transmits programming from their studio to the high power broadcasting towers generally located near most major urban areas. These towers then rebroadcast the signal to the homes and houses nearby where the signal can be picked up by the TV antenna in your home.

At Mohu we work with improving the TV antenna in your home to allow you to receive stations more clearly and from further away.

Digital TV is actually capable of a higher resolution than cable or satellite, but some broadcasters choose to use a lower resolution which allows them to transmit multiple programs (or streams) in the same bandwidth, which is called multicasting. As a result you may be able to receive multiple channels from NBC or FOX, for example.
