At the “Broadcast TV Liberation Tour” kick-off promotion in Washington on Sunday, Antenna Direct, in partnership with TVFreedom.org and LG Electronics, USA, gave away 1,000 free antennas valued at around $120 each as part of the push to tell consumers that they can watch TV for free without having to pay cable companies.
TVFreedom, Antenna Direct and LG Electronics on Tuesday announced the kickoff of a nationwide effort to promote over-the-air TV. The campaign’s major kickoff begins with the giveaway of 1,000 C2-V DTV antennas on Nov. 23 in Washington. A smaller event is scheduled for Nov. 20 in Toledo, Ohio. To give the public an even bigger incentive to attend the kickoff, LG Electronics is making a 42-inch HDTV available for a raffle giveaway. The company also is providing 12 HDTVs for the event to display over-the-air signals from area broadcasters.
