BURLINGTON, Iowa, March 26, 2013
BURLINGTON, Iowa, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Winegard Company, a leader
and pioneer in the design and manufacture of Antenna reception products,
announced today that its FlatWave™ indoor TV antenna and FreeVision® outdoor
HDTV antenna will be available in Home Depot® stores nationwide starting the
week of March 18.
This makes Home Depot the first retail location in America where the
FreeVision antenna is available.
"Rapid changes in antenna technology now give consumers access to the highest
rated digital programs without monthly programming fees," said Winegard
National Sales Manager Grant Whipple. "Home Depot is a perfect retail store
for the FlatWave and FreeVision, because most customers are do-it-yourselfers
and these digital antennas are easy to install – buyers can have the highest
quality free HDTV and channels not available from pay TV providers in
"The FlatWave is an indoor antenna that can be placed anywhere for the best
reception and provide near Blu-ray™ quality picture," said Whipple. "The
FreeVision is an ultra-compact outdoor antenna that can be installed outdoors
or in an attic, so homeowners don't have to struggle putting it on a roof."
The FlatWave and FreeVision are designed to outperform traditional antennas
and always provide high definition without the hassle. Consumers no longer
need to climb on a roof to install an antenna or constantly adjust TV rabbit
ears to get reception.
The FlatWave is a razor thin digital TV antenna designed to receive free
off-air HD broadcast signals with its dual band technology. The high-tech
product can be laid flat or hung on a wall or window, and its black and white
design can quickly disappear and fit in with virtually any home decor.
The FreeVision TV antenna is designed for outdoor and attic installations and
comes with high-band VHF and UHF digital TV reception for free HD
programming. It's easy to install in an attic or outside on a deck or side of
a house and can hook up to multiple TVs, so consumers can receive quality
picture throughout their home. It is paintable to blend with any surroundings
and pulls in free HDTV signals up to 30 miles away.
