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.
Impressive 60-Mile, Multiple-Direction Reception
Designed for more rural areas, the AmazonBasics Sky 60 HDTV antenna offers a reception range of up to 60 miles (or more, depending on location). Its tightly integrated 15dB amplifier helps ensure best-in-class performance. Even more, the weather- and lightening-resistant antenna delivers the same high-quality performance on sunny days as it does during inclement weather.
A completely new take on traditional rooftop or attic-mounted antennas, the powerful Sky antenna can provide an entire house with free over-the-air broadcast television in 1080. It also offers multidirectional reception, which means you can place it anywhere you want without the need for readjusting—no need to have it perfectly pointed towards a television tower (in fact, from one position it can receive broadcasts from multiple towers). The Sky antenna delivers digital television channels in stunning HD on both UHF and VHF spectrums.
Sleek, Easy-to-Install Design
Weighing just 3 pounds and measuring only an inch thick, the aesthetic X-shaped antenna offers a variety of mounting options. It’s small enough to be mounted in an attic (unlike typical outdoor antennas), or it can be mounted outside (inconspicuously, thanks to its compact size and the ability to position the mast close to the side of the house). Everything needed comes included: antenna, 30-foot precision low-loss cable, and mounting bracket.
You can even connect the AmazonBasics Sky 60 HDTV antenna to your home''s existing cable network and splitters (not included).

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.
1. Line of sight is key.
2. Connections and wire (coax cable) can make—or ruin—a good signal.
3. Re-read #1 and #2 again.
Use any of the free resources online, like antennaweb.org or dtv.gov (and click on consumer resources, then reception maps) will let you know if you’re a good candidate for over-the-air (OTA) reception, and the quality of antenna you’ll need. In my case, I live in San Diego on a pretty prominent hill with little obstructions – no trees, tall buildings or anything else nearby that would impede line of sight (remember #1 above) towards the transmission towers. I have two sets of towers about 15 miles north-west and south-east from me, and another set of towers about 19 miles due south (in Mexico.. TeleMundo, oh yeah!).
When I got this antenna, I tested it by resting it on the front porch steps and got a full 30+ digital channels. On the porch. Fast forward a few hours and after building a simple base out sections of 2x4s and weighting them down with a cinderblock on the roof (didn’t want to deal with risks of leaks by drilling into the roofing), the thing is rock solid up there and gets me 43 digital channels. Placement is everything and although the antenna isn’t overly sensitive to direction, having it going cross-wise perpendicular to where the 2 main cluster of TV towers are got the best results.
Side note: I hooked up the included “amplifier” and the number of stations dropped to 33. YMMV. I say, try running the channel scan without it, then with it, and go with whatever works for you.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
