This indoor antenna works fine for me after I quit Comcast Cable. I get plenty of stations, but I'm about 10 miles outside of downtown Chicago. To see if you have enough stations to justify buying an indoor set top antenna, check out a station finding website.
[...]
On the FCC website, type in your whole street address, not just the zip code or city. If you get plenty of Strong signals, you'll probably be fine with this unit.

If you don't, or if there are Moderate, Weak, or No signals you'd love to get, buy a fancier antenna. You can get a more impressive indoor antenna, including massive ones that take up unused attic space and connect to your TV through an unused TV cable. Remember, the higher you place the antenna the further around the Earth's curve it can pick up signals.

If you want to go all out, buy an outdoor HDTV antenna that extends above your roof. You'll probably pay around $200-500 for the antenna and installation, but that's only a guess.

I bought my first one from Target for just about the same price. I thought the same thing that it only was a square that's it but was surprised it had rabbit ears behind it. It's a shame they don't show you that in the pictures.

Regardless, it was easy to plug in the back of the tv and it works just like the old fashioned rabbit ears which is what I had but maybe a little better. I gave my new antenna to my son and went back to my old fashioned rabbit ears and realized that the new one was better in getting more channels so I bought another one here at Amazon.

Now I've got a 3rd tv and am buying it again for the 3rd time.

Simply put, it does the job. It's good enough, reasonably priced and nice looking, even if it has rabbit ears sticking out behind the square. The rabbit ears aren't as long as the old fashioned rabbit ears.

I gave it 4 stars because obviously it's not the best antenna because there are times I cannot get every channel that's available to non-cable users. Sometimes I have to move it a certain way to get the other channels. But I'm happy with it overall with the channels I'm getting.

I'm hardly ever home, so paying $170.00/month for cable and internet access seems silly...but I do enjoy a little tv. This unit works pretty good, but not as good as the Motorola unit I paid $27 bucks for at Target. Still, I'm saving a little over $1450.00 per year by foregoing the full-blown cable package and just using ATT's U-verse basic internet package. I stream whatever movies & TV series I want over that from Hulu for $7.99 per month, and have even learned that PBS has a fantastic home and garden channel, and my high def channels kick the ass of the cable high def channels, so overall = WINNING! Bonus points for this company as they took the time to look at my delivery address and realized I was literally 4 blocks away, so just had it hand delivered, saving me a good 5 days on delivery time. Thanks!

Who would have thought this day would come...rabbit ears will now give you the best quality TV you can get on your expensive new flat panel HDTV!!

As an apartment/loft dweller, satellite TV is not a practical (or often not available or not permitted) option. Your only option other than what was traditionally crappy over-the-air broadcast is buying TV service from the local cable TV monopoly. You know, the same company that is the only option for high-speed internet in homes like mine.

But the sky didn't fall after the government mandated "digital transition"...instead we got MAGNIFICENT, high definition broadcast...for FREE. The quality of video I get from this twenty dollar antenna is better than what I got on cable or satellite TV. The catch? Just local channels, and...rabbit ears on your TV again if you're stuck using an indoor antenna...which aren't perfect.

This was my first TV antenna since being a kid...I'm almost 40 and have had cable/satellite most of my life. I also got it at Target, and like others mentioned, it has two telescoping adjustable antennae on it. It does not have an amplifier included...which apparently means nothing where I live (in the city close to all the broadcasters).

Rating an antenna on reception would be very subjective. It all depends on where you live, etc, and what you're comparing it to. I give this antenna 5 stars, because it is twenty bucks, and the reception is basically the same as the 3 other antennae I have tried since then. I bought a similar GE antenna, but it included a built-in amplifier (you have to plug it into AC power), and it works no better at my home. I purchased a sixty dollar amplified "flat" Terk and it sucks.

We got our first LCD HDTV. We don't have cable, so we only had a rabbit ear before. It worked kinda so so, but I decided to get a 'better' antenna for the new TV. I picked this one up from a local Target store.

Now, antennas are hard to rate because a lot depends on your location, distance from stations, obstructions around your area (eg trees, poles, etc), and the placement/direction/height of the antenna.

First of all, this antenna is surprisingly small and I have to admit when I looked at it first, I did not expect much. It does have 2 VHF antennas (rabbit ears) sticking out from its back that you can pull out, and it has about 3-4 feet length of cable permanently attached to it.

So it turned out in my case, yes, the placement is very important. Depending on how high and which direction I place the antenna, the number of channels and their quality varies a lot.

I had difficulty receiving the public stations (PBS). I've read on PBS's website, that in order to better receive the channels, you SHOULD NOT extend the VHF antenna (rabbit ear) all the way, but instead, just extend it around 20 inches or so. And sure enough, I got one PBS station just by shortening the antenna. Also, when I placed the antenna on the floor (1st floor of a 2 story house), I got better reception of the PBS station (which was odd), but other stations didn't come in well. When I placed it higher, the PBS station didn't come in, but other stations did.

So finally I put it on our 2nd floor near a window (the TV is downstairs). Low and behold! This little thing pulls in 21 crystal clear digital stations, including 3 PBS channels! The antennas are about halfway extended and the reception is solid.
