Fairfax Antenna is proud of the fact that it has installed and serviced over 60,000 antennas in the Washington DC metropolitan area since 1978. We are firm believers that the over the air TV antenna is the best value for home entertainment. With prices for cable and satellite going up seemingly every other month a digital TV antenna system installed by Fairfax Antenna can save you over $20,000.00 over a 20 year period.
With many stations broadcasting two or three sub-channels in addition to their primary channel many installations provide between 50-60 channels of uncompressed digital signals. Since digital over the air high defintion channels are not compressed they provide the highest quality. Cable TV and satellite TV providers compress their signals to provide as many channels as possible even though the quality is compromised.
It is interesting to note that while numbers of Cable TV and satellite TV providers are decreasing the number of homes using over the air digital TV antennas are increasing. Homes using digital antennas are a mix of young adults, middle age and seniors. Installations of master antenna systems in large apartment buildings has also increased because residents of these large buildings don’t want to pay high Cable TV to watch network programming.
