5Easy Peasy
By Seattle Mama
Easy peasy. Couldn't be easier & picture is great. Best $35 we've spent in a while. Totally free from cable now. Apple TV in living room, Fire Stick on other TV's.

My teenager installed this thing & had it running in about 15 minutes. Having trouble? Look around your house for a teenager. They're quiet. You may forget you've got one. Check the kitchen & see if one is there eating all your food.

5This Amazon Basics antenna is the best of all the flat "leaf" antennas
By Steve Johnson
This Amazon Basics antenna is the best of all the flat "leaf" antennas. And I found I didn't need the amplifier that comes with the 50 kile version (the only difference between this 35-mile version and the 50-mile version is the amplifier, which needs a power source). I got exactly the same results over multiple "auto scan" tries with the 35-mile version.

I also had consistently better results with this Amazon model over the other brands. And the best feature of the Amazon brand is the cable disconnects on both ends so you can easily replace the cable with a longer one if you need to. All the other brands I looked at had the antenna end of the cable soldered in "permanently".

With any antenna though, you really need to plan on spending some time finding the best place for it in your home and also the best direction to face it. There is some great guidance at tvfool.com. Generally speaking, the higher you can get it the better, and it seems to pick up signals better through window glass than through walls. I had to fiddle with fine tuning the facing direction over several days initially, but now channels come in very well. Don't just expect to tack it to the nearest wall and have it be perfect, unless you are pretty close to all the stations you want. And actually for the strongest stations the antenna usually does best flat on its back! (Either the white or black face can be the front or the back, only matters from a cosmetic point of view.)

For one tv in the house (the lowest one), I got all the channels I wanted except for one - which tvfool told me was off in another direction. So I bought a plitter/combiner for about $8.00 here on Amazon and a second one of these antennas and aimed the second at the channel I was not getting before, and viola, now I get all of them!

5Bargain of the year.
By Biobot
I finally cut the cord. No more cable TV whacky high bills. This antenna gives me about 15 channels in English and they are all high quality high def. Now i just pay for Internet and watch movies plus some good shows "free" with Amazon prime.
