TVFreedom.org and Antennas Direct joined with our parent company Sinclair Broadcast Group to give away the free digital antennas.

The event is designed to make consumers aware that you can access dozens of local TV channels in high-definition with a digital antenna, for free.

The owner of Antennas Direct says you can get up to 30 channels in Asheville.

"As a nation, we are moving back to over the air," President of Antennas Direct Richard Schneider said. "A lot of people assume that people would be watching tv in 2016 on their iPhone or iPad,s but actually one of the fastest going categories in consumer electronics is over the air antennas."
