  • Q: How many channels can I get using this antenna? And is it really free once you buy it?  (10 Answers)

    By Stephen 

    • Best answerIt is free once you buy it and IF you are in a good location to use an antenna! I would suggest that you google "how many ota channels will I get" and locate a site that allows you to put your address in for a signal scan. This will give you an idea of what channels are being broadcast in your area.

    • Best answerI'm not sure why it says 'select HDTVs'. Maybe because you have to have a regular coax style antenna input? Or maybe they're covering their fannies on TVs which are now 4K or UHD and their antenna is officially rated at 1080p. Since you're picking up broadcasts off the air, I wouldn't worry about the latter issue. I'm not familiar with any TV stations broadcasting in anything higher than 1080p at this time. Not to say they couldn't in the future, but you'd be used to 1080p, so even if you couldn't take advantage of it, you'd never know the difference. As to the input, just look at the back (or side) of your TV. Is there an input for a coax cable? It's round, protrudes from the TV, has threads on the outside, with a small hole in the middle. It's usually labelled "antenna". If so, you're good.

    • Best answerI suppose you could. But this is a wired antenna, which means you'd have to buy a splitter and enough cable to run a feed to the other room. In which case, you'd probably suffer enough signal loss to significantly degrade the signal. So you'd probably want to buy a signal booster. By the time you buy the splitter and cable (not to mention the booster), you may as well just buy another antenna. Not to mention the fact that you'd have to drill holes or run a cable through your house, either of which could be unsightly.

  • Q: Will this antenna work on a tv in the center of a home with no windows nearby.  (5 Answers)

    • Best answerAntennas tend to work the best in a window. But if the signal strength is strong in your area it may work fine on an interior wall. Keep in mind that some building materials such as stucco, metal siding, metal roofing, can block your signals which is another reason window placement is ideal.

    • Best answerIf your television made before 2009 you may need to invest in a digital converter. If you’re not sure of the age of your television you can check your manual for that information. *ATSC, it means you do have a built in tuner that will allow reception of digital television channels. *NTSC means you do not have the built in tuner and you will need a digital converter. *If you’re still not sure, please call your TV manufacturer. A digital converter box connects to your existing TV and allows it to receive free over-the-air digital TV signals. A digital converter box is a one-time purchase with no monthly fees. One converter box is necessary for every TV that doesn't have a built-in digital tuner and that receives its signal over the air with an antenna. They are fairly inexpensive and can be found at electronics stores or online.

  • Q: How is the antenna mounted on a wall or window?  (5 Answers)

    By jack 

    • Best answerThe antenna comes with small velcro discs that you can stick on the antenna and the surface you want to attach it to. There are also two small holes at the top of the antenna where you could use nails or pushpins to attach it to a wall.

    • Best answerUnfortunately vehicles work as moving metal barriers that will disrupt signals. The signals bounce off them and away from the antenna. The only thing you can really try is getting the antenna higher so that its positioned higher than the traffic. This is a tough issue to resolve and it's all about placement.

  • Q: is this item Compatible with Panasonic 720p Viera 50in? I noticed 1080p along with "Selected" HD TV's  (10 Answers)

    By Derek 

    • Best answerYes, it is compatible because I have the same TV! Your TV must have a digital tuner or your analog TV must be connected to a digital converter box. See here for more information: http://antennatv.tv/free/ You must also live within 30 miles of a digital transmission tower. See here for tower locations by zip code: http://antennaweb.org/Address.aspx Results are not guaranteed but mounting the antenna higher generally yields better results (eg, 2nd floor is better than 1st floor mounting). Good luck!
