Demystifying the Quarterback TV Antenna reached another milestone this week by unleashing Quarterback™ out on the innerweb.   You read that right – the innerweb.  What is Quarterback?  Why did we make it?  How does it work? How will it help you?

Let’s start with “What is Quarterback”?

Quarterback™ is a high tech smartphone case with a built in TV antenna that turns your smartphone into an instant television set.  It is also a luxury protective cover with a built-in DVR, and an easy ON/OFF button for quick access to ATSC TV, and auxiliary battery.

Why did you make Quarterback?


  • Wireless consumers are fed up paying for content x3.  How so?  To get premium wireless data content on your mobile you must:

1) Pay for all-you-can-eat data plan(s)
2) Pay for access to the app that manages the licensed content
3) Subsidize the invisible, duplicate, incessant malware bots, tracking cookies and click-bait advertising offered up by “freeware” sites.   

  • Citizens demand easy mobile access to TV programming that is already broadcast for free over the public airwaves
  • Valuable TV commercial airtime is purchased by our local retail stores and merchants, which are run by friends, family, and members of our community.    
  • All you need to pick up free TV is the right size antenna
  • High definition digital television quality is stunning and instantly captures your attention and imagination.
  • 80% of adult Americans rely on broadcast TV for breaking news, which are events that warrant the interruption of scheduled programming
  • We are the taxpayers subsidizing PBS programming – shouldn’t we be able to watch it whenever, wherever?

How does Quarterback work?

Television Broadcasters send TV signals for free over the air in a digital format, which allows Quarterback users to receive the TV signals on your very own private TV antenna without any monthly bills.

Ok, the Quarterback hardware is a lot more complicated, but you get the gist.   We’ll have tech specs in our FAQ soon.

How will Quarterback help me, and what is the real value?

+ Protects your smartphone in a unique, luxury styled case

+ Added battery capacity for double the TV viewing and extra smartphone      power

+ High definition TV picture quality

+ Does not need a subscription – in fact no SIM card is needed

+ You will discover dozens of TV channels that you didn’t even know              existed

+ Kickstand for upright viewing.  Look Ma, no hands!

+ Easy TV and Battery ON/OFF key

+ 90% of the most popular TV shows are available on free clear-to-air TV


+ Quarterback is a lifeline to communication when cellular and WiFi are        down.

Irrational Passion

Here we are, May 7 2016 and is LIVE and ON-AIR.   Clearly I have an irrational passion for what I do, but I can assure you there is nothing else I would rather be doing than working with this amazing team, and launching this incredible startup for the purpose of making a powerful and positive difference in the world.

Why did we create   Thanks for asking.  Here’s my why.

  • We wanted dynamic, accurate, context-aware, timeline-based news
  • We had just enough naiveté to take on the monumental technical challenges of conceiving, customizing and building a time-based platform from scratch, laying the foundation for amazing developments we have on our roadmap.
  • And, oh yeah – we like inventing, building and commercializing portable, digital TV antennas for smartphones and tablets.  Coming soon is “QuarterBack”, which is our first flagship luxury portable digital TV accessory – so stay tuned. is a go-to site for what is happening in the world right now, driven and measured by time.   Beyond customization of the news will be advanced analytics, big data and machine learning.  It’s all part of our secret-sauce-in-the-making.

Notice that our timeline is a gaming platform.  You can scroll, pan, zoom-in or out, and assign a cool avatar to your profile.   I encourage you to have a look around, and if you have a suggestion, comment or idea click on the Feedback link and let us know what you think.  There will be lots of improvements to come, and we thank you in advance for your help to make the best place on the web for Hyper-Precise Headline & Breaking News.
