Aereo’s Loss May Be Antenna Supplier’s Gain

aereo_304A Missouri based antenna supplier is looking to take advantage of Aereo’s recent misfortune.

Antennas Direct said it’s giving away 1000 free antennas to Aereo subscribers “as a solution to their signal loss.”

To receive a free antenna, customers must upload their last Aereo billing statement and pay $10 for shipping. They will receive the Antennas Direct ClearStream 2 Complete antenna (50+ mile range), 30 feet of coaxial cable and 20” J-Mount (MSRP $129.99).

“The Aereo Supreme Court case helps illustrate what we have said all along: local digital TV is free, offers more local channels and has a better picture quality than pay TV,” said Richard Schneider, president of Antennas Direct. “All that’s required is a simple, easy to connect antenna.”

The company said the offer is good through this Sunday July 6 or while supplies last.
