Encompass Now Offering Innovative Line of Digital TV Antennas

Lawrenceville, Ga., February 22, 2011 – Encompass Group Affiliates, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ECGA), a leading provider of replacement parts and reverse logistics services for a wide range of consumer and high-tech products, today announced its subsidiary Encompass Parts Distribution, Inc. has partnered with DigiTenna LLC to distribute its full line of patented Digital Ultrahigh Frequency and Very High Frequency (DUV) television antennas.

With the 2009 switch from analog to digital broadcasting, DigiTenna DUV antennas enable consumers to receive non-premium high-definition channels over the air. These powerful antennas capture HDTV digital signals transmitted across Digital, UHF and VHF-Hi frequencies.

The DigiTenna product line includes antennas ranging from an indoor model that can pick up signals up to 15 miles from a local network to the new XF Extreme Fringe for signals up to 80 miles away. An added advantage of DUV antennas is their extremely compact size and high performance compared to antennas of the past.

“Encompass is always seeking product innovations to help our independent service dealer customers expand their offerings and be successful,” said Robert Coolidge, President of Encompass Parts Distribution. “We are excited to provide dealers with an additional sales and installation service opportunity, while also giving consumers an alternative to costly cable and satellite service.”

Brad Eckwielen, President of DigiTenna, said that consumers are increasingly turning to more affordable DUV antennas to cut entertainment expenses. With the average monthly bill for cable or satellite service running about $70, DUV antennas offer a much less expensive option with enhanced picture quality.

“In these rough economic times, DUV antennas make a lot of sense for people looking to save some money,” said Eckwielen. “Best of all, the signal received by DigiTenna antennas is not compressed, resulting in more crystal clear reception than what you get from pay TV.”

Eckwielen said DigiTenna is pleased to be partnering with Encompass and leveraging its expert distribution capabilities and superior service.

“Encompass will greatly enhance our distribution channel, providing electronics servicers and consumers across the country access to our revolutionary, high-quality product line.”

DUV antennas are the smallest, simplest, highest performing solutions for either home or professional installations. For more information, please visit digitenna.com.
