    I live out the boonies, and this antenna works great. My only issue with it is it should come with a coax cable. It does state on the box, that it doesn’t have coax. But most people don’t read the box. The sales person said it came with a short cable.

    I purchased this antenna for a bedroom. It’s working very efficiently. Previously I was frustrated with the couple channels I was getting with another brand of antenna. The channels used to bleep out whenever a car went by. With this antenna I have no problems with bleeping out and I get several additional channels. Very satisfied with this antenna.

    I was surprised with reception & picture quality! I am able to get over 40 local channels. (Only watch 4 for local news) I did end up putting the antenna in my attic, and ran the wire through the interior wall where the TV hangs on. Took a little bit of time, but looks like a pro’s have installed it.

    Hooked this up to my Tablo Quad and it works beautifully.. I mounted it on its stand on shelf. The scan I ran picked up 83 channels. Some are the same channel broadcast on different frequency . I’m 11 miles from the broadcasting antennas. Works great.

    My Indoor Antenna Search is Finally Over

    Posted .

    I've tried several different indoor antennas, I would get 5 to 6 channels after scanning, and don't let it rain, this became very frustrating for my wife and I. Picked up this antenna for BB, install/config, and voila, I picked up ~50 channels, I was astonished, so much so, that I ran the auto scan again to be certain. This antenna is the bomb.dot.com, and I highly recommend it as an indoor antenna option. I went directly to antennasdirect website this specific model is out of stock if that is any indication. Hope this helps to eliminate frustrations expereinced by others. Peace and blessings, Azeke

    Probably the best indoor antenna you can get. I get 43 channels. Unfortunately many are music/ religious/ PBS/ Latino/government and kids. Hung it high above my wall mounted bedroom tv. Doesn’t look bad.

    Would not recommend this antenna! Installed directly in front of a window, no obstructions, signal booster added and channels within 16 miles constantly pixelating or no signal. The 60+ miles extended range is very inaccurate. The cost of this antenna is far and above what this antenna is worth. If I could return it, would be returned!! Very dissatisfied with this product and purchase!

      Sorry for the inconvenience this caused you. When you connected the antenna, did you scan the TV for channels? If not, please try this by using the remote control for your TV. Go to menu, then channels and scan for channels. It is also possible that you are installing the antenna in a location where no signals are present. Try moving the antenna to a different area of your home and rescan the TV for channels again. Some locations can be in a bad spot to receive signals. If you need any assistance, we would be happy to help you. Please call us 877-825-5572 9am to 7pm M-F and on weekends from 10am to 6pm CST. You can also chat with us online at antennasdirect.com. antennasdirect

    With an Antenna, Size Matters

    |
    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    I've been a cord cutter for more than a decade and dealt with the vagaries of a changing skyline around us and unpredictable weather. Living in lower Manhattan, the issue isn't signal strength but rather multi-path signals from reflections off all the buildings around us. In the days before digital TV, that meant severe ghosting and a picture that was unwatchable. With today's digital TV, the picture is either perfect or not there at all, and even with transmissions from only a few miles away, a rain shower can cause the picture to break up. We can receive some 50 channels, but ever since the new World Trade Center was completed, half of them are broadcast from there with the other half from the Empire State Building, 90 degrees in the other direction. Living inside a steel-frame building, no single indoor antenna could capture all stations from both directions. Using a so-called omni-directional antenna or combining multiple indoor antennas actually made the problem significantly worse, and amplifying the signal made no difference at all. An amplified bad signal is still a bad signal. After reading many reviews, we decided on this antenna. It claims to pull in stations from 60 miles away, but that was not an issue for us. We just needed to be able to pull in stations from several city blocks away. Most outdoor antennas, however, are highly directional and cannot handle the off-axis signals that predominate in New York. Although directional, the ClearStream 2MAX has one of the best off-axis signal capture profiles of any antenna on the market. In theory, aiming it between the two transmitters should still yield a usable signal. In actual practice, our first attempt was a complete bust. With the antenna mounted directly over one of the building's largest steel support beams, there was no usable signal at all. With a longer cable and by mounting the antenna directly to the railing of our terrace, the reception was perfect. For the first time since we cut the cord some 12 years ago, we are able to pull in all stations in all kinds of weather, without fail. This is a very large antenna but when it comes to pulling in a stable digital signal, size really does matter. Pros: Excellent signal quality, multiple mounting options, easy to position. Cons: Large and unwieldy, does not come with cable, which the user must supply, no options or instructions for proper grounding - the user must supply their own grounding block and look up instructions for use on their own.

    Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Clearstream 2Max OTA Antenna

    Posted .

    I bought the Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Clear stream 2Max OTA Antenna just to test it as an outdoor antenna. There was no doubt in my mind that it would not work as well as I wanted it to, and that I would return it. So I put it on my roof but did not mount it down and pretty much got the same channels I was getting before. I went back and adjusted the antenna slightly in another direction, rescanned the channels again and WOW!, I could not believe it, my channel line up went from 29 channels to 44 clear channels with no pixels. the digital indicator on my Yamaha 6.1 receiver indicated digital source and the picture and surround sound is incredible. Grant it , it is still Winter and the leaves are not on the thousand trees I have in my back yard, but right now everything is great. I am getting channels 60 + miles away. This Clear stream 2Max OTA Antenna for me is a keeper.

    This antenna is very easy to hook-up right out of the box. Pulls in a great signal with better picture quality than the local cable company provided. It’s sitting on an end table in front of a large bow window. I have it positioned facing the towers in my area which are about 10 miles away. I returned the first antenna I purchased @ Best Buy. It had a built in amplifier and performed less than satisfactory.I Should have saved myself the inconvenience and bought the Clearstream 2 Max from the beginning. I get all the local channels and then some!

    HD Quality OTA, and it actually works!

    Posted .

    So, spending $80 on an antenna for Over The Air broadcast was a little off-putting and I went into this with high hopes, but low expectations. Upon opening the package I was actually a little worried as to its performance due to it's relative small size and seemingly weightlessness to it. It just feels like hollow plastic with a couple sticks that you can adjust (either up or down) on its sides. A feeble attempt to set it up indoors fell short of any channels, as expected. Not a single one came in. Lots of interference and I totally expected nothing. So, with a satellite dish already installed on the house from previous owners I decided to utilize the already installed mounting bracket for this antenna. Basically the same setup that comes with the 2MAX, but I didn't have to do the hard work, just removed the dish from the mounting post and placed the 2MAX in the same spot and faced it in about the same direction the dish was at. Basically pointed it towards the open part of the yard. Ran the channel search option on the Vizio TV (after running the antenna wire through the basement and directly to the TV) and after about a 3-5 minute scan I had broadcast TV! And way better quality than when I was a kid! I expected some channels to come in, but I didn't expect HD quality pictures, which include NBC, PBS, FOX and some other channels. A good amount to select from and all equally as good HD quality. I know location has a lot to do with it and relative distance to the broadcasting antennas, but if you've got those working with you then this antenna is a sure hit. Lightweight, easy install, extremely simply design. Just make sure you get yourself a long enough antenna cable if you have to install outside. I got the 50' wire for about $15 from bestbuy and it works great too.

    Not for Indoor apartments

    I purchased the Clearstream 2Max to replace a MOHU Leaf antenna. I was hoping that it would be the answer to my cord cutting prayer. I did my due diligence an read reviews and searched YouTube and this antenna got decent reviews. This antenna is advertised as an Indoor/Outdoor antenna but the best reception come when the antenna is placed on the floor pointed toward the outside patio glass door. Which is an eyesore. Even then I have to get up and move it when I change channels. The base falls off every time I pick it up to move it (second photo). The 4th picture shows what the picture looks like when it is sitting next to the television. In that position I get 2 or 3 channels but the reception is questionable at best. See picture #1. I live in an apartment and recognize that the walls in the apartment may be a large part of the problem. My next step is to try to mount it outside. I purchased a flat coaxial cable so that the patio door will close since drilling holes through wall in apartments is frowned upon. The Clearstream 2Max comes with mounting hardware to mount it outdoors. I placed my old MOHU Leaf in my bedroom window attached to my new LG television and the reception is great. So it reasons that this Clearstream antenna will improve once it is mounted outside. The $90 price tag is double the price of the Leaf. I had to leave town for a week and missed the deadline to return it so it cost me an extra $22 to get it placed outdoors and I expect to spend more since I don't want to drill into the walls of the apartment.

      Hello Leslie! We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. In an apartment an indoor antenna can be tricky. With the ClearStream 2MAX, most people tend to place the antenna on the floor. The towers are 1500 feet up in the air, so the higher you can get your antenna the better. Also, you always need to rescan the TV for channels when you move the antenna. This could take a few attempts. If this doesn’t work for you, please contact our support team so they can make a recommendation for the right antenna for your location. They’ll need a little more information from you to perform a free signal analysis. 1-877-825-5572 or chat with us at antennasdirect.com. antennasdirect

    WEAK RECEPTION. I wanted to replace a $10 set of rabbit ears. I immediately lost reception to half (about 60) of my channels. The indoor "stand" that comes with it is utterly unstable, the slightest bump and the thing topples over with acrobatics. Large, clunky, and wayyyyy OVERPRICED.

    A Great Antenna-ClearStream 2Max

    I live in the City of Lansing MI and I have Direct TV (ATT) which stops working when bad weather occurs. I bought a flat panel antenna but it did not pick up all the stations and reception was spotty. I bought a larger flat panel amplified antenna, same result. I did lots of research on indoor antennas. The ClearStream 2 MAX had good reviews from several sources, so I bought it with the understanding I could return it to the store. I mounted it inside on a wall that should be the worst location in my house...but it worked!!! We can now easily switch between Direct TV and antenna input. I added 2 semi-circle disks at bottom to hide the mounting bracket ( cheap black plastic putty knives with handles cut off). I call it my functional modern art piece. I highly recommend this antenna.

    FINALLY...an antenna that I didn't cuss and return! No blinks/hangs on the critical channels and more with this one. Had tried over some time five other models; yes, indeed were smaller ant's. However, bit the bullet and supersized my "burger." Your results may vary, but mine for sure are all stars. Details are that this unit is operating in den that is a remodeled block-wall garage. Would have mounted on roof, but cable path would have been difficult. Used a "Winegard LNA-100 Amplifier" ($30) with ant' to help BTW. All in all reception is colorful and happy now!
