Why should you Cut the Cord?
Cutting the Cord has benefits that go way beyond saving money
Recent studies have shown that over 90% of the US population is within range to stream free over-the-air HD television.
The average US household's cable bill is 123. This means you can save over 1,400 a year by simply dropping Cable TV.
Cable companies are allowed to downgrade their service by 30% to save on transmission costs. OTA doesn't have this problem.

Get free access to all the content available in your area, including the most popular over-the-air TV shows, news, sitcoms, kids programs, sports and much more, all in breathtaking 4K Ultra HD for the best picture quality, most vivid colors and stunning sound.
NOTE: BEFORE YOU BUY:
find channels that works in your area:
- dtv.gov/maps is run by the Consumer Electronics Association and the National Association of Broadcasters.The interface hasn’t changed in over a decade, but it’s simple and the information is useful.
- TVFool is more complex but gives a lot more detail including gorgeous plots of theoretical signal strength and where the broadcast towers are located.
And if you’re looking for a cable-style TV schedule, "TitanTV" is a free Web service that lists local programming.
If you know (planned) antenna's height, you can specify that here in feet above ground level
easy to install:
1) Connect the antenna’s coax cable into the back of your digital-ready TV.
2) Find the optimal placement for the antenna.
3) Scan for available channels, and you are ready to enjoy your free content.
Recommended to be mounted 30 feet above the ground
NOTE: Cable channels are not available using the antenna, like ESPN.
- Many antennas on the market are optimized to receive only UHF broadcasts and do not reliably receive VHF. All pbd TV antennas are precision-tuned to receive both UHF and VHF frequencies and will provide you with the most HD content.
- Generally, the higher the antenna is above the ground, the better it performs. The amount and quality of the channels you receive will depend on the following:
- Channels being broadcast in your area
- Broadcast tower locations
- Strength of the broadcast signals
- Line of sight and environmental terrain
Please check the TV's manual to make sure the TV has a built-in tuner for receiving over-the-air broadcast
Retune your TV and/or digital box from time to time to ensure you are receiving all available services
1. For flatscreen HDTVs, please check the TV's manual to make sure the TV has a built-in tuner for receiving over-the-air broadcast, and make sure this tuner can receive HD signals or else it will not be able to receive and watch HD channels.
2.Retune your TV and/or digital box from time to time to ensure you are receiving all available services. Retuning takes only a few minutes using the remote control.
3.Antenna signal strength can vary depending on distance from the tower, terrain, and weather. Reposition the antenna in a different location if needed. It is best for the antenna to be in line of sight with the TV tower(s) and avoid obstructions. Always re-scan for channels after moving the antenna.
4. If your TV has no built-in tuner, you can add an ATSC digital converter box to receive the HD signal.
Preamplifer Indicator Light
- Make sure the Preamplfier indicator light on the antenna main unit is power on.
- Reposition the antenna to a different location: we highly recommend to place it higher on the roof or wall. Sometimes moving a few feet can make a great difference.

The unit came well packed from the vendor with all of the parts needed for the installation. You will need a few tools for the mounting portion of your install, but these will be determined by where you mount (indoors or outdoors). The manual will explain further. The documentation is OK (not great), but you will be able to complete the project from what is provided.
This kit ships with a mounting pole, 40' RG6 coax, a rotor control (to remotely turn the antenna), a pre-amp, the antenna & mounting hardware. Some light assembly is required, but it's very straightforward.
**There is a model of this antenna that is cheaper, but DOES NOT SHIP with a mounting pole. So make sure you select the correct version for your application.**
Also, some OTA antennas DO NOT included coax, a mounting pole or a pre-amp. These will be additional expenses on top of the purchase of your antenna. So make sure you read the details on any antenna that you consider purchasing. This model includes all of these items.
Of course, for the price, you're not receiving a top of the line pre-amp, or for that matter high quality RG6, but for most applications it should suffice just fine. Especially if you install indoors (mine was an attic install) where it will be protected from the elements.
And for anyone wondering, the pre-amp IS powered by the rotor control box (not by the coax feed). So if you opt not to use the rotor (to turn the antenna on demand) then you will not be able to use the pre-amp.
So if you need the pre-amp, you will have to connect up the rotor control even if it won't be used. However, if neither are needed, then they can be bypassed entirely.
Also, you can run this antenna directly into a signal booster (drop amplifier) like a PCT (PCT-VC-9U). These can be found on Amazon for around $50.00 - $100.00 depending on size & features you need. So if you already have coax jacks in your house that are in place from previous cable or satellite TV, then you can repurpose those jacks for your new antenna. This way you can distribute your antenna signal to all (or most) of the TV's in your house!
Please note that your location, proximity to your broadcast towers, potential points of interference (trees, building, mountains, etc..) & height of your mount are a HUGE DEAL when using ANY OTA antenna.
I'm located in FL, so it's pretty flat. However, most of the broadcast towers are 30-45 miles away. As well, the antenna was mounted indoors & at the most 15' to 16' in the air. So it is fairly low. However, even with an indoor installation (and not using the pre-amp) , this antenna easily picked up 57 OTA channels!
So while some people blame the antenna when they can only pick up a few stations, there are many other moving parts involved to get this all to work.
If this is your first time installing an OTA antenna, then PLEASE use a free site like "tvfool" or "antennaweb" (Google these) to determine what direction your broadcast towers are in relation to where you will be mounting your antenna. These services will also tell you what channels are going to be achievable with the antenna of your choosing. All you do is plug in your address & the site will serve up all of the info that you need. Do this BEFORE you buy any antenna to make sure it's even worth your time.
One last thing, be sure to re-scan your channels on your TV every now & again. Channels get repacked (put under different channel assignments) & new channels get added. So if a channel that was coming in suddenly disappears, it may not be your antenna, but the broadcast signal itself.
Overall, this antenna was easy to install. Since I mounted indoors, I used two 2" wood screws with washers right into a truss to mount the mast. The antenna goes on with 2 bolts (ratchet & socket do well here) & you're done. I can't personally speak to an outdoor installation, but would have to assume that it would be a bit more involved.
I shortened the included RG6 cable (only dual shield not quad shield) to around 15' as my equipment panel was directly below the antenna in the laundry room. If you decide to do this, then you will need to crimp on a new compression connector on one end of the cable. However, you can purchase an entire kit on Amazon (with F connectors, coax stripper & the crimp tool) for under $20.00 (Bestar #3189 (Blue-F) ). It's VERY easy. You can do it!
As well, having a shorter run can only help your signal performance. So if you have excess cable after your install, consider shortening it to the exact length that you need.
The hardest part of the install is dialing in the perfect sweet spot for your broadcast towers. The best thing you can do is use the websites noted above to get the direction of the towers BEFORE you do your install. Then bring a compass (yes, a real compass) or use a compass on your smartphone (this is what I did & it worked perfectly) to help point your antenna in the correct direction. If you have a helper, then have them scan the channels once you lock on to your desired direction. It may take a few attempts, but it's worth it (especially if you don't use the rotor function). Cell phones or walkie talkies do nicely here :-)
And if you ever need it, their support was great. It's only email based, but they responded within 24 hrs. Very willing to help & get any questions answered.
If things change, I will update this review. However, after almost a month of use, I've been very happy with this kit. It feels great not paying the cable company to provide stations that are otherwise floating around us for free -in uncompressed HD!
pingbringding was great to work with. I had several follow-up questions via email and there response time was excellent.
Now my big screen HDTV can be used to its full potential. Awesome picture quality (finally). Many channels to choose from, now. Just imagine the number of free channels available in a large city. Quit PAYING for free TV.
