works better than I expected wist they had spent another 15 cents on a second long bolt for mounting mast to bracket instead of 2 short bolts with my big fingers and on roof never could get them to work so made a trip to hardware and spent .20 and bought one and then no problems. Picking up and holding more channels that the big antenna I had on roof.
Finally cut the cable. I live in Florida, which is pretty flat and non-obstructing as far as signals go. I get 60+ channels extremely clear, went through several storms and never lost my channels. With AT&t, constantly lost signal for whatever reason, not to mention AT&T customer service (if you want to call it that). When I called AT&t to cancel service, they flat out told me I had to keep their "basic" cable service, or if I was using too much bandwidth for my internet service, they would "throttle" it down. These cable companies have you by the balls! AT&T sucks. Get one of these antennas. And tell AT&T to suck it.
For the price it can't be beat. I receive all local channels in the 60 mi.range in crystal clear HD(with some fine tuning) and have cut the cable cord and now use directtv now and Netflix/Amazon for additional content. NOTE: make sure that your coax cable from antenna is not touching other cords or HDMI cables you may have. This caused interference and "noise" with my reception and loss of signal. Also check out Antennaweb.org or similar website to locate broadcast towers in order to determine where to point your antenna.
This antenna comes with all of the hardware needed to install and is very easy to install. I have it mounted in my attic approximately 25' from the ground level and I am picking up stations from 75 miles away very clearly. I have only had it installed for a couple of weeks so I can speak to durability but I am very pleased with the outcome so far.
I live about 70 miles from the TV tower and all of the broadcasts are very clear. It resolves the digital transmissions much better than I expected. I wasn't sure how well it would perform as I am near the 85 mile range that was advertised. (I don't usually trust claims like that). But, I am quite pleased.
Was originally going to install this antenna outside but decided to install it in the attic instead to avoid outside elements. It is currently connected to 2 TVs and it picked up 38 OTA channels..The channels on the TVs are very clear and there has been no issues with reception. This antenna is very easy to put together and shipping was fast.
I purchased this to replace the smaller indoor antennas that did not provide a great signal for one of my televisions. We ended up installing it sitting in the rafters in my garage. So no real installation happening there. My boyfriend was able to tie this antenna into the existing wiring in my house and the one antenna works for both of the TVs we currently have hooked up. Picture is clear and we get all the channels we wanted (plus some we didn't). I ended up buying the new TIVO Roamio to record over the air shows and with this antenna and the recording capabilities its just like having cable - without the cost!
This deal is HUGE! As everyone I'm tired of paying so much for TV. I have to laugh that I completely forgot about TV transmission towers and believed the world was a cable only enviroment. I set this antenna up in 10 minutes after prepping the battlefield (wiring rooms). The antennas are 42 miles from my house and I now recieve 32 channels in crystal clear quality! ABC, CBS, NBC, and many more. Netflix is my entertainment but I wanted live local news without cable. I have been bragging all day at work....it seems everyone has forgotten about the old antenna. Outstanding product in quality, performance, and price!
Great antenna, needed this to get "channel 4" in Nashville TN. (UHF ... something, something...). Now I get two "channel 4's" (the other's from Bowling Green).
If you have a Dish mount on your house you can take their grey jpole (and it's supports) off of the mount base and make it work with the black jpole that comes with this antenna. The sides of the black jpole won't actually touch the grey mount base when you're finished (try to center it though) but that shouldn't matter if you do it right. Remember, it's not supporting that sail of a dish anymore - this antenna is pretty small so it's not going to catch very much wind.
After a month of using this antenna, I give this antenna thumps up. I mount it in my attic. Great quality reception. Without amplifier I pick up around 40 Channel a lot in 1080 HD, with the Amplifier provided it pick up max up to 74 channels , a lot of channels is in HD. weather will impact the reception. but no matter what I wont received less than 65 channels ( the fact is even you received 74 channels some of them just repeating channels ) with amplifier on,. good looking good quality and no assembling at all. But I just not sure the reliability of the Amplifier, because it must install in the attic next to the antenna otherwise you won't received 74 channels. But in summer the attic will be really hot. I wonder will it damage the Amplifier?
