AmazonBasics Ultra-Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 35 Mile Range

If you’re paying too much for cable, it might be time to cut the cord. With this convenient AmazonBasics ultra-thin indoor HDTV antenna, you get impressive reception (up to 35 miles from a broadcast tower) all in one discreet little device.

Both compact and easy to mount, the antenna works just as well in modern, spacious homes as it does in smaller urban apartments, studios, dorm rooms, and workshops. It can even be placed in your RV for TV reception from town to town or during a tailgating party.

The AmazonBasics ultra-thin indoor HDTV antenna makes it easy to watch your favorite shows—minus the messy cords and ever-increasing monthly expenses. Even more, with free, uncompressed, over-the-air television, the HD picture quality is actually better than with cable or satellite.

Details

  • Receives free broadcast High Definition TV signals (such as ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and Fox)
  • Supports 1080p HD
  • Backed by an AmazonBasics 1-Year Limited Warranty

Favorite Channels and TV Shows

Because free over-the-air television includes a vast majority of the most watched popular shows in the U.S. (according to Nielsen), you won’t be missing out. The antenna picks up free broadcast High Definition TV signals like ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox, and more. From national TV networks to local TV shows, there’s only the one-time purchase of the antenna, then there’s no cost to you after that. Imagine, month-to-month TV viewing without an annoying contract or monthly fee.

Sleek, Paper-Thin Design

In addition to being exceptionally thin with a mount-anywhere design, this out-of-the way multi-directional antenna comes with a 15-foot coaxial cable that easily plugs into your HDTV (no power needed). Simply plug it in, mount, and scan for channels. It delivers full 1080p HD to any digital-ready TV. White on one side and black on the reverse, the antenna accommodates any home décor—or it can be painted for a more customized look.

Disclaimer

Channel reception will vary depending on what's being broadcast in your area, how far away you are from broadcast towers, and your surroundings (i.e. obstructions between you and the towers).

Before purchasing this antenna, check out what channels are available in your area: http://dtv.gov/maps.

Note: Some cable channels are not available using the antenna, like ESPN.

=============================
Comment added on 31 October 2013-

AmazonBasics lists three different antennas under one sales entry point but there are major differences in antenna size and reception. Selecting the right antenna will make a difference in the broadcast [OTA] signals your television set receives. My advice is begin by using this site

[...] [antennaweb dot org]

and follow the steps using the ZIP code for your location, and then choose which of these three antennas might work best for your local area.

======================================
I considered the Mohu Leaf products but decided on this AmazonBasics model because prior buys of AmazonBasics cables has proved their worth as a product line to me, saving 15 dollars over a similar Leaf was a plus. I used a zip code based search service to see how many channels are available in my geographic area, 18 in total. With the AmazonBasics amped antenna 16 is exactly what I receive after removing some duplicate non-HD repeater signals and learning two listed stations are private and coded. Excellent reception as I'm approximately 10 to 30 miles away from the originating signals.

Unpacking was easy as was connecting the cable to my television set, selecting channel signal type to "Antenna", and running "Auto Program". Bingo!, bright and clear picture and sound on the first try placing the antenna on an inside wall about six feet up.

I choose the amplified antenna because of my location and signal reception concerns, in hindsight I might have been able to use the AmazonBasics standard non-amplified antenna, but I went for the possible boost in reception performance for my location and distance from signals.

Very satisfied with antenna and results.

Konrad.

Style Name: 25 Mile Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Review of the **Regular Performance** Model

Over a year ago I purchased a Mohu Leaf for a bedroom TV, the original version basic Leaf, good for a 35 mile radius under optimal conditions. I was able to pick up 39 channels with the Mohu.

This AmazonBasics antenna looks like a Mohu Leaf, but slightly smaller in size. I placed it in the same location as the Leaf, did a channel scan and came up with 37 channels. Two channels less than the Leaf, but they weren't channels I watched anyhow (local religious channels that operate on low power signals).

I was able to place a framed photograph on the wall OVER the antenna to help hide it, with no loss of signal. I've also experienced clouds, rain and snow flurries the past 2 days with no signal loss due to weather conditions.

I see no difference in color brightness or picture quality with this antenna over the Leaf....and no matter if you choose this AmazonBasics or the Mohu Leaf, they both look a heck of a lot better than ugly rabbit ears. If you don't want to spend twice as much for the Leaf, this is a GREAT alternative.

Of course, this is a "your mileage may vary" type of thing. So many things can affect your signal - not only the distance from your location to the towers, or hills or flat land, or building materials; lots of things determine what strength signal you will receive.

NOTE: Installed on a south-facing bedroom wall, one-story ranch with vinyl siding, not near a window, suburbs, flat ground; most of the towers I pick up are on the other side of the city, 20-25 miles to the northwest, with the exception of one channel where its tower is 8 miles to the northeast.

Style Name: 35 Mile Verified Purchase
Could not be happier with the AmazonBasics HP flat antenna. This was just what I'd hoped for. After ditching Comcast cable 6 months ago and then last week no longer receiving even a handful of OTA, thanks to Comcast trying to strong-arm former customers by blocking the handful of local OTA channels. Btw, Comcast, hate you even more now; we are never, ever getting back together again. ;-)

So, I shopped around and decided on this AmazonBasics HP HDTV antenna, as well as one Mohu Leaf flat antenna (@ same price). We needed one for the downstairs den/media room tv and one for the upstairs master bedroom tv. I figured one of those two antennas not only do the trick but that one would be better. (Both were forehead slapping easy to install and set-up: plug 'n' play then run channel scan. Any issues, just shift the antenna a little this way or that until satisfied with the reception and picture on all the received channels. We pulled in @ 30 on both the AmazonBasics HP and the Mohu Leaf.)

When they first arrived, I hooked up the Mohu to the 4-year-old Sharp Aquos downstairs, since it's physically half the size of the AmazonBasics antenna and is more unobtrusive (it also has the shorter cable). I hooked up the AmazonBasics HP antenna to the small Samsung upstairs. After running the channel scan on each tv, to be honest, there was no difference whatsoever. Both pulled in the same number of channels, for us intownish big city single family home with lots of local stations, PBS and major cable network. We also have an ATV1 hooked up the lower TV and an ATV2 upstairs for streaming just about every channel we used to receive with cable, as well as some premium movie channels. What neither ATV did was stream local channels, which was why I got the AmazonBasics antenna and the Mohu.
