TCL and Winegard Serve Up the Perfect Entertainment Package for National Cut the Cord Day
America's Fastest-Growing TV Brand Celebrates Holiday for Cord Cutters by Offering a Free Antenna with TV Purchase
CORONA, CA (June 28, 2017) — TCL®, one of the world's largest and America's fastest-growing television brand, and Winegard Company, a pioneer in antenna design and development, join forces once again to honor National Cut the Cord Day (July 7) by kicking off a special promotion during Independence Week. Together offering a complete solution for those looking to break free from cable for an alternative wireless service, TCL and Winegard are redefining the way consumers use Smart TVs.
Through the partnership, consumers who purchase an S-Series 4K TCL Roku TV™ on Amazon from July 1-9 can add a Winegard FlatWave Micro Indoor Antenna (FL-2000) into their cart at no cost by entering the code TCLCUTTHECORD. This popular FlatWave Ultra-Thin model features a 30-mile range for HDTV reception, dual band optimized VHF/UHF element for maximum signal capture, and a high quality mini coax cable for easy positioning. Plus, the indoor antenna is reversible to match any decor in your house.
"As the number of cord-cutters continues to grow with cost savings and viewing flexibility playing a bigger role in entertainment choices, National Cut the Cord Day is the right time for TCL to help make the decision to cancel cable a lot easier. Consumers want to be sure they can still enjoy all their favorite shows and we can provide that confidence with free over the air programming and the most streaming content available on any Smart TV," said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL. "TCL has been America's fastest-growing TV brand for three straight years and recently received Winegard's Cord Cutter Certified Platinum Award, delivering critically acclaimed TCL Roku TVs that include a tuner as a vital supplement to streaming and a great way to access popular network TV and live sports in high definition over the air at no additional cost."
TCL recently launched its new S-Series – a smart value line that brings the Roku TV platform together with crisp 4K UHD picture performance and HDR for precise clarity and detail. The television sets integrate the latest technology and features to provide consumers with an exceptional viewing experience, including endless streaming entertainment, fast dual-band wireless connections and three HDMI ports for flexibility. The S405 series is being offered in 43" (43S405), 49" (49S405), 55" (55S405) and 65" (65S405) screen sizes - all with easy access to more than 5,000 streaming channels and 450,000+ movies and TV episodes through the built-in Roku operating system.
"Consumers are actively looking for ways to make cutting the cord easier. A Winegard FlatWave Antenna paired with a TCL S-Series 4K Roku TV does just that," said Aaron Luttenegger, Consumer Products National Sales Manager, Winegard Company. "A partnership with TCL for National Cut the Cord Day is a great way to provide customers the solution they have been looking for."
