Remember when you could watch TV for free? You still can. The FlatWave Amplified indoor HDTV antenna saves your money and delivers beautifully crisp, high-definition TV programming from your local stations.

The FlatWave Amplified indoor HDTV antenna’s enhanced dual-band antenna features a state-of-the-art, ultra low noise preamplifier embedded directly at the elements, where 100% of the signal is amplified. The innovative USB power supply provides energy savings by only consuming power while the TV is powered on. Equipped with an 18.5-foot long coax cable, this antenna looks great in any decor thanks to the dual black and white sides.

  • newegg Long Range Amplified Indoor Antenna The FlatWave Amplified offers an extended reception range of up to 50 miles – ideal for smaller communities, or areas where conventional antennas have trouble getting a signal. The revolutionary Clear Circuit technology provides an incredibly low-noise figure of only 1.0dB, letting you receive more channels and minimizing pixelization and dropouts. Dual band reception means you don't miss out on channels that UHF-only antennas can't pick up. Install it in minutes, and say goodbye to big monthly cable bills!
  • newegg Free HDTV Channels 90% of the most-watched TV shows are available on local stations. Why pay for the same programming you can get for free and in high definition with the FlatWave? Many local stations now broadcast in crystal-clear high definition, and also broadcast audio in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, giving you the ultimate home theatre experience – but with no monthly bills. No monthly fees, no contract, no installation fees, no credit checks, and no cancellation fees: you can save an average of $1,000 per year by switching to FlatWave.
  • newegg Unbelievably Razor Thin The FlatWave is less than 2/100 of an inch thick (0.43mm). You won't believe how thin the FlatWave antenna is! Designed with black on one side and white on the other, the FlatWave can be flipped to display the side that best suits your home decor.
  • newegg More channels for free FlatWave antennas deliver free over-the-air programming to your television. While the channels in your area may vary, there are more channels being broadcast for free than ever before. In most areas you can receive your local ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and PBS channels, as well as new "digital subchannels", that broadcast 24-hour news, weather, kids programming, and your favorite syndicated shows. This includes 90% of the most watched television shows, including programs such as NBC Sunday Night Football, NCIS, Dancing with the Stars, 60 Minutes, and more. In larger markets many other channels are available, including 24-hour sports programming, 24-hour classic movie channels, travel and dining networks, 24-hour music channels, and more.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Lengthy cable
Does a good job

Cons: Feels cheap to the touch

Other Thoughts: I do have this running all my tvs through my old cable connection in the house. I know reception depends on location so I think for the money it works well enough. I would like to tet others since this is the only HDTV antenna I have purchased.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work well

Pros: Simple and small design

Cons: Does not pick up many stations. There are 6 distinct stations within 13 miles. No matter how the device is positioned it only picks up one of those and always the same one or none. The amplifier is powered by a USB power adapter plugged into the wall. I have tried every possible position as suggested in the manual and by Winegard, but have yet to receive more that one station. The antenna seems well made and the construction looks to be of good quality, but something is not working.

Other Thoughts: This antenna might be OK if you live in a high rise apartment in a big city, but then you would have cable wouldn't you.

4 out of 5 eggsThe Flying Saucer that could

Pros: Great device to wean my wife off cable TV.
Reminds me of the old days with rabbit eats, but 100x better. Able to get local HD programs.

Cons: Occasionally will get lousy reception (image fragmentation) with some channels. Depends on weather, solar flairs and other natural occurring abnormalities.
Even Comcast could do this from time to time.

Other Thoughts: Can record home made DVR PC media player. I like the delayed recording in case I need to step out while watching the news or favorite TV show. Comcast for a monthly fee you can use their DVR, but mine is just a good and even better in some ways because I can use it as a computer also.
Use it to provide TV signals to 3 TV's across a small 1560 SF House.
Stations are up to 30 miles away.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Got it when it was on sale for a very reasonable price. It's reversible, so you get 2 colors for the price of one. 2 ways to power it, plus a decent amount of length.

Cons: I don't have any.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat antenna, very pleased

Pros: Flexible and lightweight, you can mount it in a corner above a door which is where I got the best reception. It is amplified so it really brings in the channels. I live in a major metropolitan area but the TV towers are all still about 30 miles away. You definitely need the amplifier for this scenario.

Cons: None at all.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn’t pick up channels that are even 20 miles away

Pros: If there was a station 10-15 miles away maybe it would pick it up just fine.

Cons: It does not pick up many channels. The channels that it does pick up, don't come in very well. The description says that in picks up channels up to 50 miles away, so I figured the stations that are no more than 35 miles away would come in just fine, but they don't. A local station (WTNH channel 8), which is no more than 20 miles away comes in a little, but it’s unwatchable unless you hold your hands on the antenna.

Other Thoughts: I have an apartment in Guilford, CT where there are only tiny hills and most of the stations are 35 miles away in Hartford, CT and less than 20 miles away in New Haven/Hamden, CT area.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Antenna!

Pros: Lightweight, easy to hide, lots of channels

Cons: None yet!

Other Thoughts: Great antenna! I currently live in Hamilton and will be moving to my new apartment in Ottawa in August. I used to use RCA rabbit ear antenna and was only able to get 3 channels in Hamilton. After purchasing this antenna, it came one day early, and from getting 3 channels with my old antenna, I now have 13 channels. I get CTV Toronto, CBC both in French and English, Global and CityTV, just to name a few. I can't wait to set this up in Ottawa.
