I'm a huge anti-cable person. I love the shows I do watch, but I hate the cable companies. When the switch happened from analog to digital 7 years ago I was not happy. Over the air local channels were how I watched TV. I bought two of the digital converter boxes but ended up only getting in 4 channels, sometimes and none of the extras or multi-cast channels. I subscribe to a few streaming services and use a Roku box but I still really love my local ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, PBS... I gave up getting them to come back in. I tried antennas. I tried metal coat hangers. I was told unless I put an antenna on the outside of the house I was probably out of options for doing better. When I saw the Indoor Amplified HDTV VHF/UHF TV Antenna I knew I still had to give it a shot.
What I love: I am in Baltimore Maryland so I am within the 50 miles of a TV station it says you should be for best operation. It only took me a few minutes to install, just attached the coax cable into the box which is attached to the TV, sat it on the stand and moved it around a bit. Instantly I was impressed! Before I only got 4 channels, now I usually always get ABC in all 3 multicast channels, NBC, MEtv, CBS, 3 multicast PBS channels, MyTV, My24, Bounce, Fox, Cool TV music video channel, a country music channel, and CW. It ranges between 13-17 channels I get at a time. Sometimes if it's windy I loose channels that were previously clear, but obviously since the wind is not in my house it's not the antenna that is causing it.
I highly recommend this antenna to anyone within a 50 mile radius of their tv stations like I am!
I really love it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend it to my family and friends? YES!
