  • Has anyone heard or tried the new flat type HDTV antenna for TV's yet? We are wondering if it was worth the try. Our Dish seems to be more sports minded and old movies. If you get the movies channels it is really high. Just a thought. Thanks

  • Neighbour has a flat 12 X 12 inch unit that he says is working okay.
    I checked the reviews and bought another style from Wally World. Nothing but static. The big city is about 25 miles across the puddle. Box says the range is 70 miles. Does make me wonder if I am doing something wrong.

  • Make sure you are pointed at the station.Good antennas reject stations from the rear.

  • We have Comcast cable along with internet and telephone. Very expensive. I have been trying to spend some time looking at options. Wife is upset that she might lose some channels. My viewing is rather limited to some "news" and an occasional movie.

  • Yeah, If that package doesn't include HGTV you are in trouble.

  • I have set up a couple of these with my sons and not impressed. They are pretty directional and unless you live fairly close to the signal sources they are limited to the strongest ones. We tried to put them on windows and that improved it, but they can be blocked by someone walking near them. A newer amplified indoor version seems to work well for my one son and again it is mounted to the window with suction cups. I use a medium range Yagi with a rotator that is mounted on a mast above the roof. Even then it is marginal with some stations that are about 40 miles away unless I point right at the station location. I gave up on cable and satellite a long time ago.
