Tom's TV repair hangs on, installing outdoor antennas for streamers cutting cable

The heyday of outdoor TV antennas or rabbit ears will never return, experts say. But research firms and the National Association of Broadcasters have noticed the uptick in over-the-air TV antenna householders as people patch together different ways of accessing entertainment with traditional pay-TV services. The number of internet-only households with TV antennas rose about six percentage points over the last five years, to 15 percent by the third quarter of 2016, according to Parks Associates. It had been about 9 percent of internet-only households in 2013. “The concept of cord-cutting is in the public mind,” said Parks’ Brett Sappington.
