Antenna Retailer Mohu Joins TVfreedom Coalition
Raleigh, N.C.-based Mohu, a U.S. HDTV antenna retailer, has joined ithe TVfreedom coalition. Mohu joins local broadcasters, community advocates, network television affiliate associations, multicast networks and other retailers of over-the-air broadcast television products and services.
Mohu is the 30th organization to join TVfreedom, and will work with TVfreedom coalition members to help push for federal policies and legislation that will allow TV stations to, in the group’s words, “flourish in the 21st century, while protecting U.S. consumers’ access to free and local broadcast TV programming on multiple digital platforms.”
“Mohu is pleased to partner with TVfreedom to advocate for expanded consumer access to free, local broadcast TV across America,” said Mark Buff, its president-founder. “The power and reach of free, local broadcast TV has never been more important to America’s television viewers, especially the millions of families who are looking for or have found viable alternatives to the high cost of pay television service.”
“The growth in broadcast-only homes illustrates that free, over-the-air television is part of our future,” said Robert Kenny, TVfreedom director of public affairs. “While it’s true that a growing number of Americans are using streaming services to access video content of their choice, they continue to rely on traditional broadcast television via an antenna and other means to stay connected to their communities, access local TV newscasts and emergency information, and enjoy popular network entertainment programming and live sports.”
Mohu joins St. Louis-based Antennas Direct as the second HDTV antenna retailer member of TVfreedom.
