Excellent Reception w/Signal Booster
Posted by: VAOUTDOORS from: on
Since moving to a new house about a year and a half ago, our TV signal has been marginal. It was decent during the winter months, provided that the weather was good; we would often lose all channels except one once the tree foliage developed during the summer months. After reading the other reviews, I decided to give this antenna a try; I also added a signal booster to the system since my only aesthetic installation option was low to the ground, underneath a porch (metal roof prevents acceptable attic installation). After assembly and installation, we reprogrammed our TVs and found that we are now able to pick up several additional channels, even during the summer months. Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase. I would have rated it 5 stars, but the antenna packaging was not suitable for standard shipping methods. The box was open when it arrived, and it did not appear that it had been subjected to any rough/abusive handling. Fortunately, the antenna was not damaged and no parts were lost. I would recommend that the manufacturer upgrade the packing box, or that Best Buy put the manufacturer's box inside another, heavier box for shipping.

Amazing HD Antenna
Posted by: SignedJeremyB from: Worcester, MA on
I installed this in an attic mount on a single story house. I can pull in 37 channels, through trees and over hills. I get stations from as far as 50 miles away, at very high signal strength. Going to be cutting out dishnetwork now that I have this baby. I could probably pull in another 15-20 more channels if it was mounted outside, but since I get all the ones I wanted anyway and it would probably be more junk channels like old movies and such I didn't bother. Plus I preferred to have the antenna indoor out of the elements. It should last forever installed like that. Only minor complaint is that it is expensive, but was on sale for a fairly reasonable price, and not paying 2 months of dish pays for it entirely.

Best Antenna We've Used
Posted by: Klondike from: Harrisburg, PA on
We’ve had the DB8-E installed for about nine months now and it works great. The DB8-E can pull in signals from two different directions or get excellent reception from one direction. Where we live, the TV antenna towers are in two main groups about 110 degrees apart. We have been able to get reception from both groups by aiming one of the arrays toward one group and the other array toward the other group. This was not the case with the other antennas we tried (Mohu Sky, ANT751, and DB2-E).

This is my second purchase of Antennas Direct Multidirectional Outdoor HDTV Antenna. I have two large HDTVs and I wanted one for each on the same antenna mast. We are over 45 miles from the Twin Cities towers and I get all the free TV that is being broadcasted from those towers. I have no monthly cable or satellite bills!

Excellent OTA reception.
Posted by: OTAperfection from: on
I am in north central Indiana and about 75 - 80 miles from any broadcast tower north and south. I have been receiving OTA channels for about a year now using the Antennacraft UBU55 UHF / VHF combo antenna and picked up about 24 channels from Indianapolis. On a very clear night I would sometimes get stations from as far away as Chicago but these would quickly go away when it was cloudy.
I started my search for a stronger UHF antenna and ended up purchasing the Antenna Direct DB8e based on reviews posted online. It was very easy to assemble and install. I stacked this antenna with my UBU55 and it is about 40 ft up on the tower.
Now for the best part. On the day I installed this antenna it was a very cloudy and gloomy day and was drizzling rain. After the install was complete I performed a channel scan for the first time.
Here is the best part. After the scan I was very amazed that I picked up 30+ channels from Northern Indiana (the direction the DB8e antenna was pointing). These channels have a very strong signal and 90% of them are in HD. Cable and satellite can not touch the picture quality OTA provides.
All of these stations are 75 - 80 miles from my location and the DB8e pulls them in as if they were next door. The DB8e antenna has been in use for about 3 days now and I still have no loss in signal.
I am very impressed with this antenna and I will be ordering another one to replace the UBU55 all together so I can have one pointed north and one pointed south.
A year ago I was paying over $100.00 for satellite tv. Now I have all the stations I need and they are absolutely free.
So if you are wanting to cut the satellite or cable tv cord then you can not go wrong purchasing this antenna. It rocks.

Met Expections as advertised, in Wrentham, MA.
Posted by: BradB from: on
Prior to purchase, I investigated on-line the topic of switch to broadcast digital TV from cable subscribed TV. I was fed up with cable, having to subsidize for channels I do not want. Found a good on-line tool for reception assessment for antenna selection and height elevation. The Omni directional 70 mile radius capable antenna I purchased and installed proved excellent. Set up was simple with my Visio "smart" TV. It did an initial spectrum scan and delivered 50 channels of viewing. I am very pleased and I am saving over $100/month in cable service billing.

I hooked this up in my attic and I receive 40+ Channels. Bye bye cable. I highly recommend this antenna to anyone who wants out of pay tv. The Channels come in extremely clear and look as clear as cable if not better on the local channels.

My family recently cut down on our monthly bills. The antenna works great for local stations. It is all we needed.
