Winegard Flatwave Fl5500a Amplified Ultra Thin (Antenna) 1929

Review for flatwave amped digital hd indoor

Price was $51.90. Awesome product. I live in pittsburgh, pa and have a panasonic viera smart tv. Pittsburgh is a lot of hills if you're not familiar with the landscape so i was sceptical with ordering if i would get much from this. Looking at other sites that tell how many channels i would get told me 15-19 stations tops. . The antenna was easy to hook up and i had it hooked up literally in a minute. It's about the size of a mouse pad and came with the amplifier and plug for the wall outlet. . I ran a scan with the thing sitting on the back of my tv hidden from view and was blown away when it pulled in 43 hd channels! . . I still really cannot believe it. I went with the amplified version because if it even gets me just a few extra channels it's worth it because imo i'll never be paying cable again and that extra money becomes nill in a year from now when i've saved an entire year of cable bills. . Imo most of these reviews are garbage because it matters where you live, what type of tv you have, and of course what antenna you hook up. That's why i've included that info in this review because unless you have the same info as me your mileage may vary.

The reception is beyond my highest expectations. Add a system recorder with online store prime-netflix, hulu, crackle etc, etc and your family with treat you like a channel grabbing rock star.

Winegard flatwave amped fl5500a digital hd indoor amplified tv antenna 4k ready / atsc 3.0 ready / high-vhf / uhf / ultra-thin / black and white - reversible / usb power supply - 50 mile long range ota antenna Review (fl5500a)

I love this antenna! i am about 40 miles southeast of chicago, and have tried several indoor antennas, because i cannot put one outside of my apartment. I returned quite a few antennas because they just would not pick up anything. I kept one that was a phillips brand, and suffered through moving it around, relocating it every time i switched the channel. I eventually gave in and got cable, but only kept that for a year because of the cost. I saw the good reviews for this antenna, so i thought i would give it a try. I am so glad i did. I tried a few locations before i found the best, and it has been there ever since. I am pulling in all of the major chicago stations. Sometimes the atmosphere is not that great and i will lose a channel for a while like, cbs or ion, but i can live with that. Most of the time they are all coming in great. Thanks winegard! goodbye cable! . Edit: just wanted to add that if you do still have problems getting stations to come in, which i had with some, i used the old foil trick that we used to do with rabbit ears. But since you can't wrap foil around the ends of this, what i did was drape a piece of foil over it from one corner to the other, and tape it there. I left extra play in it so i can adjust it in and out. I do have mine actually hanging in the corner of the room because that is where it picked up best. There are probably other ways to do it also if you wanted to try. The way i have it, i think the foil bounces back some of the signal, making it even stronger at the antenna. Whatever it does, it works for me. I can pick up all of the chicago channels. Sometimes there are interruptions depending on the atmosphere etc. But that is to be expected. -S. Jacqueline

PROS
  • I'm over the moon & spreading the word. . Victory! . . I live in huntington beach, near the harbor & just like to maintain some local broadcast channels for local news, pbs, kcet, koce, & occasionally, ktla. The rest is streaming of netflix, online store prime & soon to be sling or hulu. . I know it would be unnecessary, if not totally redundant, to launch a "cable company rant, " as most consumer scam victims, already know & are fed-up w/the twisted comedy/price & cust. Serv. , games, of basically all the major providers, lining their pockets, via their brain-washed employees. . Only recently, i discovered, a good antenna would, once again, be a viable option. I quickly researched the distance of local towers in so. Cal - results - 35 mile distance. I started looking for a well rated, low profile antenna & found it. I now i have crystal-clear sharp reception, of 160 ("air"/free) channels, which i didn't with cable. *note - most are mostly ethnic stations, but that's how strong the feed is & i'm still left w/plenty, if not more channels to satisfy my needs. Proud to say i'm now a member of. "cord cutters! ". . All i'll need now, is a semi-decent internet provider. "stay tuned! "
  • This antenna (the indoor fl5500a amplified) is much stronger that the amplified antenna i was using. My previous antenna was from radio shack and was rated by consumer reports as the best indoor antenna they reviewed. Some stations were sometimes becoming unwatchable, so i decided to try a new antenna. It's made a significant difference. . Receiving the winegard, i checked its signal strength for our favorite channels compared to the radio shack. I used the signal strength feature on our tivo dvr. We live 4 miles north of boston. For six stations, the radio shack had peak signal strengths ranging from 64 to 88, with an average strength of 77. With the winegard, installed a few minutes later, the same stations had peak signals of 94 to 100, with an average of 97. This was without adjusting the position of the new antenna, just propping it up on a dresser. I played with position a bit, it seemed to slightly improve some, worsen others. . The signal is not perfect, i occasionally see a glitch in the image, but overall the signal appears to be much better. I'm extremely satisfied so far with this new antenna
CONS
  • The "no signal" keeps popping up every time something in the picture makes a loud noise or whatever! we expected all of the local channels, and we are only getting 2 & 7, with some lousy movie channel. We are wasting a lot of time moving the antenna from here to there which is becoming very frustrating. Just think, we followed the suggestion that this antenna was the best and by doing so, we cancelled our cable. However, this made us realize that we can get a lot of more important things done without tv. We have sixty (60) days to return the mess. If time permits, we will do just that. . Signed: a very disappointed customer
  • My husband purchased this product after reading the reviews and determining the look of this outdoor antenna on our house. We have recently cut the cord with our satellite tv provider and decided to use online store fire tv and an antenna for our local channels. After installing and hooking up this antenna we received 0 channels. We checked the installation, direction of the towers, etc. And still got nothing. Not even a fuzzy picture of anything. We have returned this item and purchased 2 basic indoor tv antennas that have worked unbelievable! thank to online store for always making returns easy and hassle free!
  • Honestly, not sure if just my area or what but it installs absolutely fine and does bring in signal however, signals and display are static ridden and this ended up not being worth my time in my area. Yes, i did check online first and figure out coverage for the old antennae type signals. It said that i should be able to bring in 11 channels which included all the majors in my area, nbc, cbs, abc, etc. It did capture them, it just doesn't transmit them clearly for display on my samsung smart tv. I was hoping to remove cable but this particular item didn't work well enough for me.

I have and outside antenna that was not pulling in all the stations here on the northwest panhandle of florida (pensacola), after talking to the station engineer for wear-tv abc who just so happens to live 4 miles away from me he highly recommended the older version of this antenna which by the way is less powerful, but after calling winegard they told me this flatwave fl6550a is one of their newest antennas with a 60+ mile range (which i was skeptical about), but since all my transmission towers are located to the west of me between 40 to 66 miles near mobile, alabama, i decided to give it a try. To make a long story short i received this antenna this evening and temporarily hooked it up in my living room and sat the antenna on our fireplace mantle and pointed it due west and then did a channel scan and to my total surprise i locked in 28 channels which is 5 more then i was getting with the outside antenna, plus all the signal strengths are in the high eighty's to ninety's, i cannot wait to mount this amazing antenna out side to see how many more stations i will pick up. (update). Well i tried to mount this antenna in the attic and it was a no go because i got less channels and they were weak, but i believe the reason is because of the foil covered ac/heating duct work that is in my attic, so i moved it out side and mounted it on my chimney which got it well over my roof line, i then did another scan and i'm now pulling in all the stations that are west of me including 4 channels that are 66 miles away, . All the stations are showing a signal strength of 98 with the lowest one at 91, by moving it outside i gained 7 more channels, unfortunately 6 of the channels are of the religious type.

Click to see NoticeWinegard Flatwave Fl5500a Amplified Ultra Thin (Antenna)"I've had this little beauty since dec '13. Originally on the wall behind my tv (black side out), it looked great, but didn't work so well because of the construction of my 1930's apartment building. Brick & mortar, plaster & lathe walls, metal framed windows with safety wire. I mounted it on the outside my window with some 3m command strips. It's a complex radio environment, lots of reflection in the "courtyard" on the inside of my u-shaped building. Works great! 29 channels, very little loss of signal (only in very bad weather). It's not made for outdoors, but it's taken the heat, freezing, and rain like a champ (but it never gets direct sunlight, which the uv may be detrimental to the plastic)."

(0) Question: Can i use the existing coax cables from my present satellite hookup to install this antenna?


(1) Question: I do not like to use the usb feature as this antenna will connect to a cable central box. will the 110v adapter power the amplifier properly? thanks.


(2) Question: Is there an externsion cord available for the fl5500a? i needs about 15 ft extra

Winegard Flatwave Fl 5000 High Vhf Ultra Thin (fl5000) FAQ.

Brings in all the free over-air broadcast tv signals just like its supposed to do. You'll be surprised all the channels that are out there, ones you've never heard of, especially if you're in an urban area. I use this in the middle of new york city surrounded by buildings and it brings in multiple channels clearly. It's a well designed unit. -Notice from Q. Laura, Franche-Comte

Really easy to set up. I plugged in the cable to my first floor living room tv. Plugged in the amp. Did a channel scan and immediately had 36 channels. . I then decided to try putting it upstairs. I took advantage of the cabling in the house to take the antenna input and spread it to multiple tvs. My master bedroom closet contains a panel where a normal cable tv signal would come in and be split to the different tv jacks throughout the house. I moved the cables so that the input to the splitter was my office. I attached the antenna to a window in my office and plugged it into the wall jack. I could then plug in my tvs around the house to their respective cable jacks and get all of the ota channels i originally got, plus more since the antenna was placed in a better reception area.

- S. TaylorWe finally got an hdtv set this winter so i figured it's time to test out some of these indoor antennas and eventually cancel my basic cable which was $20 a month . My goal was to get major networks abc, cbs, fox, nbc and maybe some public tv stations. Basic cable wasn't giving me much more than that anyway. Aside from this, i wanted an indoor antenna that can be easily concealed (outdoor was out of question for me). . I live in rochester mn and towers are about 35-40 miles away from my house. So since most indoor antennas claim about 35 miles range i am on the outer edge of their reception. . My quest for a perfect indoor antenna started at the local stores. I ended up buying 3 of them locally and every one had to go back because i wasn't able to get local nbc affiliate which is broadcasting on vhf . Even technical support at that station told me that at my distance (35 miles) i have to get an outdoor antenna. My uhf stations were coming in easy with any indoor antenna but that vhf was always elusive . In one of my last attempts to keep the cord cutting dream alive , i sent an e mail to winegard's global sales representative grant whipple. He responded right away with some good news. Winegard was just about to release a new amplified indoor antenna that was showing some great results. At first i was little bit skeptical but decided to give it a shot. . I received this antenna 2 days later and tested it right away. I hooked it up and bingo i finally got that nbc station along with abc, cbs, fox, cw (this one i wasn't able to get before as well), pbs and some more public channels. This antenna is paper thin, and it looks like a laminated piece of plastic. It comes with 18 feet long coaxial cable, and an amplifier. One i got is transparent but it also comes in white/black combination to blend in your decor. It can be put horizontally but for better results i recommend attaching it to the wall using couple of 3m stickers that come with it. My entertainment center is about 6 feet tall and my tv is on the upper level so i put the antenna on the wall behind the entertainment center about 6 feet up from the floor. So this way it stays hidden but its in a good position to receive signals. It helps to move the antenna around a little bit to find out where it gets the most channels before you attach it for good, but this unit is so light and easy to move around. It can be attached to windows as well. Flatwave amped indor hdtv lets you connect the amplifier to the usb port on your tv so your amplifier turns off when the tv is off . . I am very satisfied with this unit and would highly recommend it. The thing that impressed me the most was its ability to get a vhf station at about 35 miles distance. As noted above none of the other antennas i tested was able to do this. Your investment in this antenna will pay off in 3-4 months depending how much you are paying for cable. . Portion of the money i save will go towards netflix service - $7. 99 a month. . So again, i highly recommend this product if you are looking to pick up over the air hdtv signal. Your reception will depend on landscape between you and the towers but this amplified unit worked great for me at about 35-40 miles away from the towers. Over the air signal is even better than cable, since cable has to compress it. Be ready to spend some time moving the antenna around until you find a perfect spot, small movements can make big difference. Costco will start selling this antenna as well, you can buy it through winegard site or here on online store.

Great antenna! we connected it to our tv, which is super easy to do. Then we placed it on our window facing east which, in our town, is the where you need to point the antenna to receive signals from the tv towers. After performing a channel scan, we get about 32 channels. Pretty amazing clear hd picture, and no cable bills! only one little issue, the sticky tabs it comes with quickly dried up and after a few days the adhesive did not work anymore. But, we figured out another way to hang it on the window. I highly recommend this product.

Mohu Leaf 30 Indoor HDTV Antenna, 40 Mile Range, Original Paper-thin, Reversible, Paintable, 4K-Ready, 10 Foot Detachable Cable, Premium Materials Performance, USA Made, MH-110583

I normally wait a few weeks at the very least before writing reviews on products, but i received my mohu leaf yesterday and can't wait to share the great experience that i have had with it. . First, let me say a little bit about my location and the signal strength in my area. I live in northern nj about 13 miles west of new york city. I used tvfool. Com to find out a bit of information about how close the broadcasting towers are to my location and in which direction the stations come from. According to that site, my location is under 20 miles from over 30 different station broadcasts and the majority of the signals come from the south east (more east than south). I used google maps to look up my house and find out which windows in my house face that direction, and i'm fortunate to have a window right in my living room that we don't use (has a blackout curtain over it) that was perfect for mounting this antenna. . But before i mounted it to my window, i decided to try it just on the wall next to my tv. Mind you, i am in an old house with thick brick walls (even internally) and all windows are blocked by blackout curtains and blinds. Even with those limitations the leaf picked up 51 - yes, 51 - stations. The signal strength was moderate on the stations. I then ran the leaf via a 25' cable to the window i mentioned above and got 54 stations almost all of which had 100% signal strength. . I then decided to experiment with whether this non-amplified tiny antenna would have the ability to power two televisions with a 25' cable running to the splitter and then about another 20' of cable running from the splitter to each tv. Unbelievably, it can. Tv 1 receives 54 stations with no degradation in quality due to the splitter, and tv 2 picked up 51 stations with 100% signal strength on all of the important ones (abc, nbc, cbs, fox, pbs, ion, bbc and a handful of other ny stations). . With that experiment over, the only hard work left was running the cabling in a way that was neat and tidy, and i now have perfect television in two rooms with this amazing, unpowered antenna. Given the signal strength in my area i expected to get good reception (i got 50 stations with a coat hanger, albeit a weak signal), but the fact that this thing can run two tvs on a splitter with close to 50' of cable to each television as well as it does far and away exceeds my expectations. . I can't speak for everybody's situation, but i can wholeheartedly recommend this product to anybody in or near a metro area with broadcast signals coming from within the 35 mile radius this antenna is quoted for. But even if you aren't in a metro area, i would not hesitate to give this antenna a try. It is truly remarkable, and hats-off to mohu for creating it and for helping people get away from the ridiculous cable companies.

Mohu Paper Thin Reversible Performance Mh 110583 (Antenna) FAQ.

After purchasing 4 0r 5 hd indoor antenna's for my hd tv, (i did not want to pay a mo charge for cable)i saw this on online store. I had spent anywhere from $ 20. 00 to $ 70. 00 for a portable unit, and decided i would try one more. I am so glad i did! this indoor paper thin antenna really made my day. After reading the mounting instructions which are very clear and easy to follow; i stuck the antenna; yes stuck the antenna(velcro included) to my window at the highest point. After using the scanning feature on the tv, i picked up channels i did know available in my area. The picture was really clear, and audio was excellant. In fact i called to my wife and asked her to view the picture, and she was amazed at the same quality, and stated it's as good or better than our cable tv picture on the same channel. In fact one of our local channels comes in better than the one on cable, (local channel and cable are having issues)in comparsion! . The unit( i purchased two)even works on the far side of our home, not facing toward the tv broadcast antenna also! there are limitations stated in the instructions as to the placement, distance, and installation, but i would recommend the moho paper thin antenna unit above any i have tried in the past from the major brands. Thank you online store and moho(usa product) for having excellant quality items made available to us through your system. Shipping(free of course over 25. 00), quick delivery, quality, plus many other reasons are my choices, for using online store! -Notice from Y. April, Oklahoma

I have this antenna for a month now. Overall, it performs very well. I have the the antenna on the back of a tv stand on the 1st floorand and it can pick up almost all of the stations except cbs(channel 2) unless i set the antenna at a specific location. I am at the chicago far north suburb, and it is notorious difficult to pick up the cbs 2 (broadcast through vhf) as far as my internet research indicates. . To get cbs 2, you will need your antenna to face south and it shall not have much blocking structure along the direction (or at least one opening that leads to a window or entrance door facing south if you are on the first floor). You need to adjust the location of the antenna slowly (wait 3 to 5 seconds before you move it to another location) when you try to find cbs 2. It is easier to get the signal on the second floor but you still need it to face south. . In conclusion, this is a solid product. However, it has limits as an indoor antenna. . Btw, i also have purchase a refurbished amped mohu leaf after this purchase. As far as i can tell, if you are within the signal range, it does not give any advantage to pick up cbs 2 indoor compared to the regular mohu. I think you can save some bucks by buyng a refurbished one in my experience. It is just an antenna.

- K. NevaThis leaf antenna allows reception of all nine kansas city primary tv channels even though it is positioned in a bedroom such that the signals have to pass through four walls of my home to reach it. The stations are located from 13 to 20 miles distant, and have an angular spread of 26 degrees. Have chosen to have the antenna semi portable by mounting it in a lengthwise narrow slot cut in a small 7/8 inch square plastic towel rod bought from home depot for about $4. A section 12 inches long from the rod is needed for this project, which also requires a relief mid length to accomodate the antenna tab. It is finalized by raising this reworked towel rod to give clearnce beneath of roughly 5 inches. My arrangement for this consisted of a heavily weighted tang container with a wooden dowel rod fixed vertically in it. A suitably sized hole in the aforementioned short section of towel rod gives the whole device the "ground clearance" it requires. Happy i made this choice for my hdtv and selected online store for the speedy delivery.

This thing is sweet! don't be fooled by its size and flimsiness when you open the box. I bought this antenna to place in our kitchen for our wall-mounted hdtv. Seeing that we already have the terk for the tv in the living room, i was very conscious of the fact that we needed an antenna that is designed with space-saving in mind. The terk is also a great product but it's clunky and it would not work in our kitchen. Anyway, just for the fun of it, i decided to compare these two products in terms of what they pick up in the living room. The result: a tie. Both products picked up 45 digital channels and 2 analog channels. However, outside of functionality, thus far, i'm casting my vote for the mohu based on not only its slim, sleek design, but also the fact that it does not have a power cord. It comes with only the antenna cord that plugs directly into your tv. Furthermore, the instructions were much better. They give you a four-step cheat sheet that could not make installation any easier. My final thought on this product is that i appreciate the fact that one side of the antenna is black while the other is white. This definitely gives you some aesthetic options when you decide on where to hang it. All in all, a good value. Shipping took about 10 days which was a bit disappointing considering that shipping was not free, but. Oh well.

Tablo 4-Tuner Digital Video Recorder DVR Over-The-Air OTA HDTV Wi-Fi LIVE TV Streaming

Pros:. This product is built on a very good principle no wire connection between the box and the tv. Therefore you can place the box closer to a windows and reduce the cable length between the antenna and the box. Other good point, external hard drive. If the drive fails you buy another cheap hard drive plug it in and you good to go. You can register 4 shows at the same time. No need to buy additional equipment for a second or third tv. Customer service is very responsive. Con:. You might run into signal problem just like me. I couldn't have a continuously the same channels. I when through 4 antennas (amplified and non amplified) but could not get the local channels i usually watch. It brake my hearth but i had to return it and keep the roku 4. This is the main reason i gave it a 4stars. . If you want to cut the cable this is the best solution if you have a good signal reception. If not look for live tv streaming services such as sling tv or playstationvue. Playstationvue is my favorite with the cloud dvr

Tablo 4 Tuner Digital Recorder Streaming (spvr4 01 na) FAQ.

At first i was a little hesitant buying this because so many people had issues or thought this product was subpar. I bought it anyway because it had everything i wanted. I could use it with any of my rokus, record anything i wanted, watch on my iphone or ipad, and gave me access to all the major networks . My review is almost all positive. It works faster with the wired connection, it took awhile to figure out my antenna setup but works great now because i'm allowed to put the tablo anywhere i want (i have it hidden under my son's dresser). Two things that keep it from a 5 star. It takes some time to load a show, and sometimes it thinks there's no hard drive connected. That's it. This is a must purchase for cord cutters! -Notice from S. June, Darlington

Out of the box, the unit is very simple to configure. I suggest that you do a little bit of prep work prior to introducing the tablo to your home ecosystem. Install your hd antennae in a location that will provide you with all the channels that you want on your tvs. (i just wanted cbs, nbc, abc and fox) this may seem like an obvious statement, but if you can see it on your tv and you are not getting any pixelization, then you will have success with the tablo. The unit take a few minutes to install. I have roku units throughout the house and they wired to my ethernet switches. I chose not to go with wifi because of the faster speeds throughout the house and i am getting great results. The one roku that is not wired at this time has a hard time processing the data on the tablo and it is very slow on this unit. If you can, use wired for best results. On the set up menus, you can choose many different options, just use the recommended 720. It is not as clear as the 1080, but the recordings are clear and there are no drop outs. I tried all the other settings with poor results. Tablo should remove those settings as they are problematic and will cause you much frustration. I used a wd passport with no issues and the recordings seem fine. They are not as clear as the hd reception that i am receiving, but i did not expect them to be. The only issue that i can see at this time is the roku remote and the fact that ff or rr is not great. I only wish that there was a way that tablo could create a better interface with those units so that commercial ff would be easier. Tablo states that you can watch live tv on their app on your mobile devices. I have yet to see that function properly. I can stream any recorded show though, and that does work well. I am going to look into that further and will update my review when i speak with them. Support with tablo can be an issue. They have limited their support to times that most people are at work which means that you cannot solve the problems when you are in front of the unit. They should change this if they want more customers to move their system. My suggestion for tablo would be to have support from 6am to 10pm throughout the us. For those of you that are not familiar with how drv systems work and what to look for, this can be your one point of failure that will make this a bad purchase for you. I happen to build broadcast systems for a living so this was not much of a stretch and i knew going in what would be problematic. The schedule that they provide is very good. If you have used a dvr in the past, you will feel right at home. Compared to the tivo ecosystem, you are going to save a ton. Tivo has the romio unit for 49. 95, but you are required to purchase their annual service for 180. 00 per year. Compare that to 150. 00 lifetime on the tablo and you have a clear cost advantage going this direction. In addition, you must use their tivo minis which are 150. 00 each. The minis do the exact same function as the roku which cost 50. 00. With tivo, you do get a better ff and rr and skip function, but is that really worth the additional expenses that you will incur? . Two weeks into the unit, this has been a good purchase. My girlfriend wants me to install a similar system at her house after watching me proof my system. I am surprised that more people do not go this direction? i am going to cancel my hulu subscription now that i have proofed this product as they do not provide much more in the way of service. In fact they are missing many of the shows that i get on the same day with this system. Yes, they remove commercials, but for the additional expense, i can press the remove button a couple of times and be fine. For those of you that have some technical background, this will be a very simple upgrade to your system. Have a wired system ready in your house or have very good wifi coverage. Choose a good usb 3 drive and you should really enjoy this system.

- . FinchI love this thing. I am preparing to cut the cord and it was between this and the channel master. I made the correct choice. It is easy to set up. Plug it in, connect the cat5 cable from the router, connect the antenna and the external hard drive (i bought a 4tb for 95 here on online store) download the app and you are good to go. I hard wired it right out of the box and never attempt to use it with wifi as i think it would just create "too many devices trying to do too many things at the same time lag" with my network and i have 75 mbps. I bought this used so it did not appear it still had the 30 day guide for free option. I purchased the guide for 5. 00 and i like it enough that i will be buying a lifetime subscription for 150. I live in chicago so i was able to get about 60 or so channels with my 25 mile 8. 00 antenna in a window. The office that this is in has a window right by the top of the desk so i placed it up there and put the antenna in the window. I did buy a 50 mile antenna to see if i can get everything the tv guide app says i should but if not the 25 mile one worked fine. I love that you can schedule whole series of shows so i do not have to remember to schedule the goldbergs every week as it will record either just the new ones or all of them depending on what i choose. I never realized how many classics are still on local channels like cheers, all in the family and chips. If i ever go back to cable i will probably still use this and save the 15. 00 a month the cable company charges to use theirs. I had to kinda laugh at the reviews that state this is not for channel surfing, correct this is for recording. If you want to channel surf buy a 8 dollar antenna, switch input to tv and surf away. I love that i can watch anything i recorded on any device anywhere in my home not just one tv downstairs or on main floor or in the bedroom. I will soon have 5 tv's so the fact that it does not cost anything to watch the recorded episodes on any of my tv's is a bonus.

I can only give this 4 stars, since i was never able to attach the device to my network over wifi. I didn't try tech support - i decided to hard-wired it to my router. That, of course, created another problem relative to antenna placement, but that seemed an easier problem to overcome than fighting wifi throughput. Other than that, the device works exactly as described and designed. Its interface is simple and functional, and integration with the tablo program listing service is excellent. I have a 1 terabyte ssd attached to it (they're cheap), and don't think i'll be struggling with capacity issues. The only other observation i might make (and this isn't relative to the device, but to cutting the cord in general) is that you have to make sure your antenna produces a sufficiently strong signal. Mine is clean most of the time, but we discover poor quality recordings from time to time, impacted, i assume, by weather and other problems associated with over-the-air broadcast. I'm in the process of updating my antenna installation to suit. But, again, this is a very viable alternative to cable dvr systems for folks who are mostly interested in the content broadcast locally, and otherwise purchase streaming services (netflix, etc. ) for content beyond that. I'm saving a bundle over my cable bill.

Yes! we cut the cord! man, did we waffle about that decision. For almost an entire year. See, our favorite fall shows came back on and then we didn't want to leave mid-season so it was totally not worth the $180 per month, we were paying for our cable/internet combo. Holy smokes i wish i'd known this was going to work so well. We would have started saving money much sooner. This is placed on an interior wall, no windows nearby and works perfectly. We get every channel that is possible to pick up in our area with excellent hd quality. Setup is extremely simple - you plug it in to your tv then run a channel scan through your tv settings menu. Maybe 15 minutes total including trying to find a stepstool. With online store prime, netflix, hulu and hbo now subscriptions, we are still saving over $100/month over our previous plan. You can do it - it's worth it.

I live in cedar park, tx (nw of austin) in an apartment. The antenna is inside. I am very happy with this antenna. In this area, fox broadcasts on the lowest channel of high-vhf (channel 7). Fox was the hardest for me to get reliably. . Yipee! this winegard gets it in! i had tried a phillips with vhf/uhf combined with a rocketfish uhf and got in fox after much adjustment to the rabbit ears, but lots of weak stations and no tolerance for interference. The winegard got it in with just moving it around the wall to a good spot. Also, the strength of all the channels improved with the winegard from 1 or 2 bars to 2 or 3 bars. I am using the amp. Without the amp the stations do not come in as strong, but still a bit better than with the phillips/rocketfish setup i tried. . In my setup, i am receiving:. . 7. 1 ktbs (fox) plus 7. 2, 7. 3, 7. 4, signal 1 bar. 14. 1 kvbo (myaustintv), but intermittently as it goes from 0 to 1 bar. 18. 1 klru (pbs) plus 18. 2, 18. 3, 18. 4, signal 3 bars. 24. 1 kvue (abc) plus 24. 2, 24. 3, signal 3 bars. 36. 1 kxan (nbc) plus 36. 2, 36. 3, signal 1 bar. 42. 1 keye (cbs) plus 42. 2, signal 2 bars. 46. 1 knct (pbs) plus 46. 2, 46. 3, signal 2 to 3 bars. 54. 1 knva (cw) plus 54. 2, 54. 3, signal 2 bars. 62. 1 kakw (univision) plus 62. 2, 62. 3 (gettv), 62. 4 (escape), signal 3 bars. . One bar is all i need to get a solid signal. I can get more bars on some stations if i move the antenna, but thus far, not without degrading other stations and losing fox channel 7. Fox seems to be the most touchy, probably because its the at the lowest of the vhf range. . Overall, this is the best balance i could find in the 10 minutes i've spent setting it up. No problems with interference and super happy that i don't need to adjust the antenna when i change channels. Glad i decided to try one more antenna to watch broadcast tv. . Now, i will spend a little more time and see if i can get 14. 1 with a reliable signal. No biggie if i can't, because i have all the stations i think are important.

Best winegard flatwave fl5500a amplified ultra thin (antenna) in review

After two years of using this i can say i'm very pleased with it! i have never had cable, and after experimenting with cheaper indoor antennas i decided i needed an upgrade in order to actually watch tv. The indoor antennas only cut it if they were placed in exactly the right place and were often susceptible to cutting out in wind, rain, and snow. . The antenna is surprisingly light and almost cheap-feeling. It worried me to remove it from its box and hear things rattling around in the thin plastic casing. I went ahead and mounted it on the side of my house with the most reception. The antenna is more discreet and sleek than other antennas, which was a selling point for me. I still think it looks fine on the outside of my house after two years. . The reception - which is why you want a new antenna, right? - is great. A channel that was incredibly difficult to receive with other antennas comes in just as consistently as all the others. The only times i have experienced difficulties is during severe weather. . Very pleased with the antenna!

J. Sherry, Missouri says

I tried several antenna and this has worked the best for me. I have 2 vhf channels that other antennas have had problems bringing in, and 14 uhf. The vhf-high 9 &13 have been nearly impossible to get at the same time on other antennas. This antenna has a wide enough pickup pattern to allowed me get both vhf channels 9and 13 even though they are 72 degrees apart. The uhf and vhf reception has been very good and very stable. I've mounted in attic and have a 50 coax run to receiver. All my channels are between 19 and 27 miles away with as much as 113 degrees separation. I've split the middle of the direction. The independent vhf and uhf low noise amps have performed very very well. I know i'd get better performance outside but living in a high wind area i've elected to get a little less performance and keep in inside the attic. I do get a little bit of a signal that is completely off the side of the antenna on channel 20 that is 62 miles away. It is unwatchable but the tv does pick it up in a channel adding scan. During high winds, rain, lightning there is no change in performance, it just never breaks up, never.

B. Debra, Georgia

We have been using this for over 9 months and it has been flawless other than a little pixelation in heavy rain - but better than satellite. First we used antennaweb(. )org to be sure we had a strong signal on abc/cbs/nbc/pbs we bought the fl6550a antenna, disconnected the cable input to the house and fed the house cable lines with the antenna from a splitter in the attic. That does three tvs from an attic mount. It doesn't matter where in the cable run you splice in the antenna. We are about 25 miles from the broadcast antennas. . Update 2017. We have been using this for over a year now and it has behaved flawlessly right through the winter. If you have the location then this does the job. Checking on antennaweb(. )org is the key: make sure you've got the signal before you buy.

I. Megan, Dudley says

The only thing i have against this is that it only comes with two adhesive hangers. You can easily get more, but i had to move it several times to get the best reception. Some hints; go to the website listed in the instructions to see where the broadcast towers are around you, then hang the antenna with the flat black side facing that direction. Best bet is to hang it on a window, just make sure there is no metal screen! . Seems to work pretty well for us, and we're in a bit of a valley. Again, move it around, try several locations/directions, and scan for channels (about 3 minutes) each time you reposition it.

. Olga, Rochdale

I bought this to use in my bedroom because i didn't want to pay for a box and monthly lease from direct tv. The towers in my area are south and west of me and the outside walls and windows in my bedroom face north and east. East has more trees and obstructions, so i decided to use the north window. I put the antenna at the highest part of the north window which is about 7 feet from the ground. I first scanned for channels before plugging in the amplifier and i picked up 24 channels. Half of those were fuzzy. I then plugged in the amplifier and scanned for channels and it picked up 52 channels. I ran through the channels and some where just a black screen and a few others were fuzzy. I then moved the antenna out of the window and put it on the wall right under the ceiling which is about a foot higher than it was. I ran another scan and picked up the 52 channels and all were in crystal clear hd! i receive all the major networks and their substations along with other independent stations, ion and several shopping channels. There are also about 8 spanish language stations as well. Weird that it worked better through the wall than the window. So, if you are having trouble receiving the channels or they are fuzzy, just keep playing with the position until you find the right spot. An inch or two can make a big difference! i would definitely recommend this antenna. I am thinking about getting rid of direct tv altogether and using this antenna on my other tvs along with hulu or netflix. That would definitely save some money.

Q. Shirley, Brandenburg says

We were able to cut out our cable bill! unfortunately, it needs to be recalibrate every so often (quite possibly because of the building we live in) however, i would buy it again as the quality of the stream is also really clear. It suits our needs, and we get about 40-50 channels which is more than enough for the occasion that we want to sit on the couch and veg or my hubby and the guys want to catch the super bowl game. We have it taped up to the wall (it comes with some reposition able sticky pads that don't damage the paint, but i used a couple spare 3m reusable stickys to help keep the position its calibrated at. )

. Erin, Cheshire

Bought this because i was sick of paying $50-100 for cable tv with equipment. I get all my local channels in full hd digital tv, with amazing quality. The ceiling in the house is low. If you have access to do so i would advise stringing this as far up as you can - including possibly passing a wire up another floor. It cuts out with wind gusts at probably 25-30mph or with planes overhead, but quickly regains its signal. Highly recommend if you don't watch lots of tv but want the option to watch local things and the big networks.

U. Elida, Massachusetts says

This product is the real deal if you have mulitple hd tv's! i installed this unit outside and ran the cable into the hole in the house the cable company used and plugged it into the amp and then the amp into the splitter. Voila! each tv in the house is plugged into the walls cable socket. I get 25 channels on two tvs and 30 on another. I am getting channels that i didnt know existed like antenna tv that shows nothing but classic shows (mr. Belvedere was on). Because i have smart tvs i have netflix, hulu, online store prime and now local channels. I got rid of cable and saved myself 150 a month! the setup took me less than 30 minutes! the only draw back for me was astetics, the coax jack on the unit is on the bottom and since the cables are stif they show for quite a bit before you can run it along the house for hiding. I would recommend moving it to the back and adding a channel to hide the cord inside the post. But this product is great if you were apprehensive about cutting the cord this will easy your fears.

H. Beale, North East Lincolnshire

I ordered this antenna and the other highly reviewed antenna on online store sold by 1byone so i could compare them 1byone amplified hdtv antenna - 50 mile range with detachable amplifier power supply for the highest performance and 10ft coax cable. Turned out to be a good decision since this antenna was far superior - it detected 155 channels compared to just 18 channels detected by 1byone (review left for that product as well). Winegard antenna has a larger surface area and the coax cable that comes with it is also much longer than provided by 1byone, which allows more convenient antenna placement. My tv towers are 12 and 20 miles away and this antenna captured all the available channels. Yet another example where the most popular online store product is not in fact the highest quality product.

Z. Brenda, Gateshead says

After several months of research and consideration, we cut the cable tv cord and installed one of these antennas. . We are 40 miles from the local antenna farm and live in a gated community with strict rules about things on your roof. . 1) installed on the edge of the roof, below the rain gutter, and aimed at the antenna farm. Ran rg-6 into the vent underneath and over to the conduit with existing coax and house splitter. . 2) used the powered house amp instead of the usb power brick in the box. . 3) took the existing cable feed and straight into cable modem. . 4) got hulu tv and already have netflix, vudu, and of course online store video from prime. . 5) have every local channel in 4 rooms. Feeding tivos. And have zero issues. . 6) pulled shielded cat6 ethernet and replaced single gang plates with dual coax/utp plates. . Overall, saving $150 per month on tv, have everything we want, and no gripes from the hoa as the winegard is nearly invisible.

C. Nicole, Wiltshire

Awesome antenna! relatively small in size but big in reception. I live approximately 75 miles from the transmit towers in my area and have my present antenna mounted on a tower at a height of approximately 33 feet in combination with a high gain amplifier and rotor to fine tune the antennas direction. I tested this new antenna when it arrived and was surprised to find out how well it would work just setting it outside at ground level. When i setup a makeshift mast just about the roofline to do more testing, the reception increased dramatically. I received all the original channels i was used to getting plus picked up a couple of more at a testing height of approximately 10-12 feet above the ground. Just make sure you have a fairly clear line of sight towards the transmit towers if you live a long distance away like i do. Thick trees do seem to hamper receptions to some degree. Oh yeah, be sure to use rg6 coax if you want a stellar picture. I tested with both rg6 and rg59. Rg6 won hands down!

. Laura, Buckinghamshire says

This antenna works great. I can get about 50+ usable stations from up to 65 miles away. . The bad part. . It was only after i hung it, programmed the channels and began to wire it permanently that i realized there was no way to run the cable through the wall. The cable is permanently attached to the antenna and the power connector. The power connector is way to large chase through drywall without cutting a few huge holes. It would have gotten 5 stars if not for this blatant design flaw. I suggest they add a removable connection to the antenna end of the amp. . (update - i was able to open amplifier box and desolder the connection. I then ran the cable through the wall and resoldered it back. )

L. Powell, Nordrhein-Westfalen says

I did a lot of checking on antenna web and other sites. We are challenged in picking up air waves due to forested hillside. This antenna picks up about 20 channels! the results were getting are pretty amazing considering expectations i had from reviewing antenna web! i will caution that you really need to move it around to find the sweet spot. Even an inch makes a difference in my house. And there are some areas of my house it doesn't work at all. As an example if i move the antenna to another window literally next door to the one it's hanging on i get a different channel makeup. I tested locations quite a bit to find the best channels for me. I wish it would pick up the channels from both windows but hey if i really want to i can move the antenna! i'm loving the free tv! to be fair i'm considering investing the in the roof top antenna at some point just so i can tap into the satellite coaxel cables already running through the rooms in my house but for now this is working well and i'm super happy saving money and enjoying free tv! do yourself a favor and pickup some coaxel (sp? ) too just in case you need to move your antenna around! i gave this 4 stars just because the electrical cord to plug in the amp is pretty short!

X. Wayt, Tennessee

I believe this is a very good antenna but location of the antenna is pretty critical or at least it was for me. Most of my stations are about 50 miles north of me. When i hooked it up i tried different locations for the antenna. On the north wall which is an inside wall that had a room on the other side, laying down, mounted on my east window and even between the east window and outside screen. For the most part i got 0 stations. Even though i didn't get anything when it was mounted on the east windows i did get two stations with it laying on the back of the chair by the east windows. Unfortunately the signal was just not strong enough to get a good constant picture. . I then moved the antenna to my master bedroom which has a patio door facing the north. Hooked it up to a different tv and got 14 solid channels. After the scan i unplugged the amp just to see if it made a difference and it does as all the channels dropped off. I don't watch a lot of tv in the bedroom so this antenna will not work for me in the living room and i'll have to look at getting an outside antenna and use the existing direct tv cabling. So i think this is a good antenna and it does work but i didn't have much luck unless it was pointed in the direction of the tv stations. . There was a video i watched about hdtv antennas and the creator claimed some tvs have better receivers than other tvs. This could have been the issue too. The tv that got 0 stations is a 70" sony and the other one was a 32 visio. Also i have a metal roof and i know this can really affect reception if you have an antenna mounted in the attic but not sure if would have that much affect on this kind of antenna. . All in all i'm happy with the product but will still have to look for a different solution.

. Eleanor, Kensington and Chelsea says

I purchased this antenna to use in the west palm beach, fl area. I wasn't sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews but decided i'd give it a try anyway. I went ahead and did the initial setup without the amplifier connected and immediately picked up 24 channels. I moved the antenna to a window pointing southward, plugged in the amplifier and to my surprise i began receiving 51 channels! some of the channels did not have a clear signal but all the locals i care about; abc, cbs, fox, nbc, cw were all crystal clear. Today, i moved the antenna higher on my window and from behind the bug mesh and did a rescan; now i'm getting 71 channels and they are all clear! i'm watching wlrn (pbs) in 1080i, more beautiful than anything cable has to offer. I wished the cable was a little longer but probably more shielded so that my cable run could be a little bit neater based on where my tv is mounted. I won't knock the product for this because it doesn't really affect what it does and if my house was built differently; like i'm sure some other person's is, this wouldn't even be a thing. . All in all i'm very pleased and so far (1 week) i love this product. I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking to get an indoor antenna. I'm west of the 95 and east of sr 441, n of 6th av and s of palm beach lakes in wpb so anyone in my area can use that as a point of reference. Also, use tvfool. Com to help with your antenna positioning if necessary. . I'll update if necessary.

R. Jarvis, Gloucestershire

Works great. Better installation instructions for roof mounting would be good. I found a great youtube video though that helped. I used 2" roofing lag screws with rubber washers and butyl putty tape. Seems solid. Then i got a coax cable with ground, and a grounding block. I have this antenna connected to the amplifier inside the housr and then to a 4 way splitter. My tv shows antenna strength at max bars. The indoor antenna would kick in and out if people moved, but the outdoor one has a nice stable strong signal. My roof is black and this antenna blends right in. I don't even notice it.

K. Anonymous, Rheinland-Pfalz says

After receiving this "jem" i tried everything to get all the channels that i know are available as i have a much cheaper model on a different tv and it gets 10-12 channels but all i could get with this was maybe 3. I was ready to send it back but tried putting it at the top of the wall not near the window and suddenly i was getting 30 channels, some i have never gotten before. Just to see what would happen i moved it about a foot across the wall and i lost some channels and gained others, something i would have never expected so i put it half way between and get a good selection of the available channels. I have since learned that where i put it faces the broadcast direction of the majority of channels and when i put it up high it in the raised living room wall was above the walls of the next room so it had less of the house to receive through. . When using this, or any antenna, for local digital tv broadcasts i would recommend looking up the location of the broadcasts at someplace like . Or antenna direct has a locator also. Also don't give up. I had another tv that was barely getting some of 9 stations randomly i was frustrated and fed up but, for whatever reason, i turned the antenna and "rabbit ears" on it's side and suddenly i was getting those 9 channels solid and another 10.

I have been using a cheap $35 indoor antenna with undependable reception (it at least got the major networks most of the time). I think the range was around 25 miles and we were 10-15 away from towers. I needed something better! i've heard good things about winegard antennas so i decided to give it a try. We recently moved and now live in las vegas nv. The towers are still about the same distance away as our previous town, maybe a little farther than before (13-16 miles now). . First a little about our setup. I don't connect this directly to our tv. I connect it to tablo, a 4 tuner dvr box for ota channels. It connects to our wireless network, so as long as i can plug it into an electrical outlet, i can put it anywhere. . I tried downstairs near the tv (ideal place to keep a dvr box), but it was a no go (tried multiple positions on the wall). Next, i tried upstairs near the family computer (next ideal place for a dvr box with a hard drive connected to it), but it also was a no-go. Better, but it was still missing a few very important networks. So, one of the upstairs bedrooms it was (closest room to and inline with most of the towers). Even here, it took a while to find the sweet spot on the wall. We're talking move it a 1/4" one direction and you lose a channel (the tablo app makes it very easy to scan for channels and see their strength in the form of dots, 1 red for bad, 3 orange for meh, 5 green for good! ). So, we spent a good while moving it around and re-scanning. It was well worth it because now we get 43 of the 52 (according to antenna websites) available channels (one it nearly picks up is in the opposite direction on the other side of the house). I'll admit, i'll probably delete a majority of those from the channel lineup because i'll never watch them, but at least this antenna gives me the chance to evaluate them! and all of the major networks are coming in nice and strong. . This antenna also looks sleek and attaches nicely to the wall! i'm very satisfied, definitely recommend this antenna!

Bluf: cut the cord with cable. . If you've noticed recently your cable company is creeping your fees up a small amount each year. This is buy design. Before you realize it, what was once $60/month has crept up to $70. It will continue to rise. Enter the old over-the-air (ota) antenna. . When the price of this antenna dropped to $50 it was competitively priced with what you would find on the shelves at your local radio shack. If you're considering this product, you're probably already questioning your cable television bill and are looking around for a cheap way to get the big 3 plus fox and pbs. This antenna delivered that for us right out of the box. . The antenna is about the size of a standard 3-ring binder. The colors are black on one side and white on the other. The coax junction is colored black and white to match. The coax cable is all white. So if you're looking for all black from start to finish you won't find it with this product. The coax cable is a pretty thin one compared to your cable company one. So it's much more flexible as a result. This is handy for routing between carpet and baseboard. . Installation was very easy. I simply screwed the antenna directly into our tivo premiere and plugged the usb amp into the open usb port on our television (the antenna comes with an ac adapter if you'd rather plug the amp into the wall outlet). Immediately we had television a decent signal. Moving the antenna around the room and pausing for a few seconds was all that was needed to find the strongest signal point. For us it ended up being in the northeast corner of the room at the top of the wall oriented to the north (80% signal strength). The supplied 3m tabs hold the top corners to the wall and two more from us secured the bottom two corners to hold it as flush as possible for aesthetics. . After sticking it to the wall and running the coax cable along the baseboard (antenna is about 4 feet from the television and at the top of the wall for judging how long the cord is) we did a channel scan. In our area we picked up 17 english channels and one spanish one. This gave us the big 3, fox, metv, and multiple pbs affiliates. . We are pleased with this antenna after 24 hours. We'll see how it holds up in poor weather. For now it gets the channels we really care about. If we want something from a cable channel we can usually find it on the internet. . If you want to provide signal to your entire house, you could mount this in your attic or in whichever room your coax cable line feeds into the first splitter. This would send the antenna signal to every coax jack in your home. However, if you have internet feeding through your coax line, you cannot feed an ota antenna onto the same line. The two services operate in the same frequency band and the antenna can interfere with your cable internet signal. If you are adept at tracing coax signals, you could put your cable modem on a stand-alone coax jack and connect this antenna to just the other rooms in your home on the other coax lines from the splitter. . Buy the antenna. You'll realize how little you care about those extra cable channels. You'll stop paying 700-800 a year to the cable company (which you know will continue to go up). Maybe it will compel you to watch less television and read a book or go outside to practice a healthier hobby (which is a good thing anyway).

I purchased this product in the middle of november on the advice of an installer (he let me by it myself to save some $). He installed it the tuesday before thanksgiving. I have around 40 channels and they all come in as clearly as i could ask for. I am up to 40 or 50 miles from some of the towers, and the device is in my attic. This really validates our decision to "cut the cable".

Y. Hurst, Bourgogne says

I was less than hopeful when i ordered this antenna, but took the chance because of the good reviews. I live in the forest in mid-western vermont and recently moved house, hence needing a new antenna as i was previously using an eight ft. Amplified outdoor antenna, fixed to the old house. . I am glad i did buy this as i have nearly all the channels i used to have and at a distance of 82 miles. The missing channel (supposedly one with a stronger signal) for some reason i don't know, does not show up, while channels with a weaker signal do. They are all coming from the same transmitter complex near albany (ny). It does not really matter as this channel (cbs channel 6) appears on another channel, so nothing lost. All this at lest than half the cost and inconvenience of the outdoor antenna. . Recommended for fellow forest dwellers.

We finally got an hdtv set this winter so i figured it's time to test out some of these indoor antennas and eventually cancel my basic cable which was $20 a month . My goal was to get major networks abc, cbs, fox, nbc and maybe some public tv stations. Basic cable wasn't giving me much more than that anyway. Aside from this, i wanted an indoor antenna that can be easily concealed (outdoor was out of question for me). . I live in rochester mn and towers are about 35-40 miles away from my house. So since most indoor antennas claim about 35 miles range i am on the outer edge of their reception. . My quest for a perfect indoor antenna started at the local stores. I ended up buying 3 of them locally and every one had to go back because i wasn't able to get local nbc affiliate which is broadcasting on vhf . Even technical support at that station told me that at my distance (35 miles) i have to get an outdoor antenna. My uhf stations were coming in easy with any indoor antenna but that vhf was always elusive . In one of my last attempts to keep the cord cutting dream alive , i sent an e mail to winegard's global sales representative grant whipple. He responded right away with some good news. Winegard was just about to release a new amplified indoor antenna that was showing some great results. At first i was little bit skeptical but decided to give it a shot. . I received this antenna 2 days later and tested it right away. I hooked it up and bingo i finally got that nbc station along with abc, cbs, fox, cw (this one i wasn't able to get before as well), pbs and some more public channels. This antenna is paper thin, and it looks like a laminated piece of plastic. It comes with 18 feet long coaxial cable, and an amplifier. One i got is transparent but it also comes in white/black combination to blend in your decor. It can be put horizontally but for better results i recommend attaching it to the wall using couple of 3m stickers that come with it. My entertainment center is about 6 feet tall and my tv is on the upper level so i put the antenna on the wall behind the entertainment center about 6 feet up from the floor. So this way it stays hidden but its in a good position to receive signals. It helps to move the antenna around a little bit to find out where it gets the most channels before you attach it for good, but this unit is so light and easy to move around. It can be attached to windows as well. Flatwave amped indor hdtv lets you connect the amplifier to the usb port on your tv so your amplifier turns off when the tv is off . . I am very satisfied with this unit and would highly recommend it. The thing that impressed me the most was its ability to get a vhf station at about 35 miles distance. As noted above none of the other antennas i tested was able to do this. Your investment in this antenna will pay off in 3-4 months depending how much you are paying for cable. . Portion of the money i save will go towards netflix service - $7. 99 a month. . So again, i highly recommend this product if you are looking to pick up over the air hdtv signal. Your reception will depend on landscape between you and the towers but this amplified unit worked great for me at about 35-40 miles away from the towers. Over the air signal is even better than cable, since cable has to compress it. Be ready to spend some time moving the antenna around until you find a perfect spot, small movements can make big difference. Costco will start selling this antenna as well, you can buy it through winegard site or here on online store.

E. Annette, Pays de la Loire says

After buying this antenna for my son in tampa who added dozens of free channels, i decided to order a second antenna to see if it would bring in channels in our vacation home in the mountains of northwestern north carolina, located at nearly 4, 000 ft high and surrounded by mountain peaks above us. I was not optimistic for this relatively remote location. . I obtained a "signal analysis report" at tvfool. Com using our exact latitude and longitude, which showed that we could receive one of two powerful channels from station antennas approximately 27 miles away, if we aimed the antenna at 320-324 degrees. The second channel would require an "attic antenna", according to the report. These channels were powerful channels at nearly 50 nm. So, there was hope. Of course, more sophisticated outdoor antennas would provide better reception. . I used a smartphone compass to identify the best location to obtain a clear path from the winegard antenna to the station antennas, located on the 320-324 degree azimuth. Then, i connected the antenna to the tv and power supply, and placed it against a window. Then, i ran the tv's automated channel setup, resulting in six stations, including the station that would require a so-called "attic antenna". I was impressed! athough the six stations were co-channels of the main two channels, we exceeded even the signal analyis with the amped winegard attenna.

I bought a winegard antenna three years ago from costco. It worked very well until about six months ago, when the picture on several of the stations started to freeze and garble up. , and some that i was receiving just fine wouldn't come in at all. These are all local stations, i'm about 20 miles from the towers of these stations - no mountains in the way. I have spent many hours over these last few months moving the antenna about every other day. I got tired of that quickly. The signal would come in fine for a day or so then get garbled again. In the meantime i was rearranging some furniture around the house and was about to dispose of a smaller but fairly new tv because i could get nothing on it at all, except one local station with an rca antenna. On a whim i hooked up the winegard and presto - all 31 stations in my area came in clear as a bell. So i decided to leave that antenna hooked up and ordered a new winegard, same model as the old one. , flatwave amped fl5500a. It came today and after hooking it up to my main tv every station is clear as can be. Maybe the older antenna lost strength over time or something - but every station looks as clear or better as hd cable with the new one. At $50 it's still half the price of one month of cable, so i'm a happy customer today. I'll update if things go wonky again.

Disadvantage and Critical reviews

Z. Yvette, West Virginia says

I first gave them high marks but after a week with them not correcting the problem and not getting back. With me in a decent time. Well the problem is not the first person with the same problem you can not get fox. I get all the other chanels no problem with very strong signal but not even a fuzzy picture nothing at all. So winegard you need to remove fox from your chanel list. It impossible to get. So we will just live with out fox. And the wire is short at 25 ft. It also pointing in the right direction. What i think it is fox maybe getting greaty what cable and satellite only and remove the signal from the air. If it not that it must be the annenta is very low quality. I spend the extra money for this and very disappointed. So i will have to live with it. I want to buy a flat in door for the living room but i will go else were do not want to chance it. And when i get enough money save find a different air annenta for the outside this is junk.

D. Franklin, Medway

Buying a digital antenna is very complicated. It's very location dependent so an antenna that works for one person may not work for another. To optimize the channels you get i would recommend finding a website that shows where your nearest broadcast towers are (antennaweb. Org is one). If all the towers are in one direction, you may do better with a strong directional antenna. . These flat antennas are great, but i read that they tend to have problems picking up low power vhf. Where i live that includes nbc. . So for us, in a normal location we would get fox, cbs, and cw. Sitting it on boxes near a window (we just moved) we also get cw and abc. Nothing we do gives any signal from nbc. This was a little disappointing because we had a cheap $10 antenna. When i put foil on the rabbit ears and angled it a certain direction i got all the channels including nbc. You would think that an amplified antenna could do better, but again it's very location dependent and these flat antennas have trouble with the lower channels so just make sure that isn't a huge deal breaker.

Y. Meredith, City of Kingston upon Hull says

After a year of spotty and inadequate reception and no luck reaching customer service or technical assistance to help, i gave up using it. A year later, i tried again. Finally was able to speak with someone who told me that, based on my zip code, it would not work unless on a north facing external wall. (i do not have one. ) fortunately, i was given a reference number and transfered to advanced technical assistance. A few hours later i got a call back. A very nice woman explained some of the principles behind why i was having trouble (e. G. , local tower location, when to use amped vs non-amped). The problem continues, but at least now i understand some of the reasons and am better able to try some troubleshooting on my own without as much frustration. Bottom line: contact winegard before you buy to find out the location of your towers to see if you have the proper external wall orientation and to see if non-amped might provide better reception than amped in your case. Leave a message and expect to wait possibly hours for the callback, but they do seem to call back now.

X. Amanda, Bath and North East Somerset

This product works but i found that it works best if mounted to the exterior of your house with nothing blocking it from getting a clear signal. I first mounted this antenna under my back porch patio and it only picked up around 17 local channels. Initially, that was way less than the 50+ channels my previous flimsy 35-mile indoor flat antenna picked up. However, the indoor antenna didn't pick up the cbs station that broadcast the local nfl game and that's why i bought this 60+ mile attic/outdoor antenna. I tried again by next mounting the antenna under my roof awning and had the pole extend from under the roof out into the open with nothing blocking it. After i did this, i picked up over 100+ channels with this antenna, including my local cbs station (khou/houston). The antenna works great but only if you mount it outside and away from any obstructions. Also, i should note that it is mounted upside down and works just fine. I don't think it would work great placed in an attic or inside of the house. Obviously, some channels would still come through if mounted indoors but not nearly as many you can get by installing it outside. For that reason alone, i gave it 3 stars because the product description should not include "attic". They should just leave it as "outdoor antenna".

H. Connie, South Carolina says

Works just like rabbit ears for all you older folks :-) when the signal comes in - it comes in very good. The picture you see over the airwaves is better than what you get from cable. But, just like rabbit ears, the signal can come and go, you have to find the right spot for the antenna, etc. Not sure it's really the fault of the antenna, it's just part of broadcast signals over the air.

W. Cecilia, Halton

Reception is for the most part, good; weather seems to influence reception, i. E. , rain and since i live in rainy pnw :/ also, the provided double-sided tape tabs are a joke. 1 because to get good reception one must move the antenna from one spot to another depending on the channel. So the first attempt to move, 2 the tabs are no longer useable as they strip off. Enter duct tape until and unless i can find a spot that accomodates all channels. The picture is crisp and clear, definitely as good as cable or satellite, just have to put up with some static images jigging across the screen every now and then in the rain. So this rating would be a 3-1/2 but it won't let me do a half, and i'm not so thrilled to give it a 4.

C. Melissa, Florida says

This is a great product if it works for you. It didn't work for us, though. We were only able to get four channels with it. We have since purchased another amplified outdoor antenna and get 25 channels or more. . Part of the problem, of course, is the way our house is situated and the geography between us and the transmitting antennae. The other problem, i believe, is that we have new low-e windows and the gas in between the panes caused a lot of interference. In fact, when we held the antenna up to the window (where we thought, intuitively, that it would work better), it stopped working completely. When we moved it, we got the same four channels. . If you can get this to work for you, that's great. The picture quality is significantly better than cable because the signal isn't compressed with an antenna. The other advantage is that you can combine an over-the-air antenna with your online store prime streaming or another source and eliminate that huge cable bill every month. We figure that we are saving $120 per month! . . It's worth a try, if you are considering going this route. Again, this product is fine, but it didn't work for us. I would recommend it to others, though.

G. Benton, Rhode Island

Background - we're in a tough location (apartment building in san francisco), but only 4 miles from the transmitter. . Without the amplifier engaged, this antenna delivered 0 channels. With the amplifier engaged, at various points in our living room, it delivered approximately 21 channels, but not the core networks. . I was testing it up high, close to the window in another location when my daughter knocked it flat on the floor. By the time i finished reminding her to be careful, the channel scan had completed with 41 channels, including the core networks. Now, i was high fiving my daughter. Unfortunately, my enthusiasm was short lived as the random location for placement she had chosen was totally impractical (i. E. In the middle of the living room), as were the very few others that delivered similar results. . My tip for those testing this antenna - if it doesn't work up high with a clear view of the transmitter, lay it flat on the floor in various random places within its (pretty large) radius footprint. You're may get a shockingly unintuitive, but positive result.

. Lisa, Alabama says

I bought this antenna to replace a winegard amplified flat antenna used in the attic. This one fl6550a made for use in an attic did not get a signal from the one channel i was looking to receive, though the flat amplified rec'd this channel clearly. The fl6550a claims to get 60+ miles out. The flat antenna rated for 50 miles. The channel's station is probably 35 miles away. The fl6550a did get plenty of channels, clearly, but it was of no use to me. Ended up returning product. Online store was great about return, better than i expected, which i really appreciated.

V. Paula, South Gloucestershire

I researched indoor antennas and multiple sources rated this winegard product as the best. I bought it to replace the clear. The clear, bought two for $19. 99, provided the same reception as this much more expensive winegard. The only difference is after a channel search, the clear will pick up channels that are not viewable. Windgard will filter them out. This saves you time when channel surfing. Most tvs, however, will allow you to remove a snowy channel so you can get the same removed affect if desired. The clear is also a lot smaller. Perhaps half the size of the winegard. The clear was a lot easier to hang on the wall compared to fl5500a. The larger square, thin surface makes it easier to flop. Picture a stingray gracefully swimming. This is how the winegard sides will flop down. They just won't flap back up. Gravity hasn't affected the smaller squared clear. I would not recommend spending the extra money for this product when there are options that deliver the same unplugged-in reception. The smaller surface area of the black, less costly option also looks better on your wall than the larger pale, more intruding, white winegard. By the way, i was unable to find a review that compared the clear to the winegard during my research. In the end, however, i ended up doing that comparison! and it cost me, ouch!

U. Cageen, Minnesota says

Make sure you know that this one sticks to a window and needs a plug in. This one does not have a pre-amp either, so don't buy this if you live more than 20 miles from your nearest tower. This model does not amplify your signal. I want to return this for the winegard i could put in my attic with a 60 mile range, but i can't return it. I am debating what to do.

E. Noguera, Northwest Territries

Very nice antenna with some exceptions. It is able to detect hd signals and they come in very clear. However the problem arises if it is raining moderately, snow, or even 5-10 mph wind the antenna signal is unstable. I mounted above the gable outside the garage which is perhaps 30 feet up from the ground so reception is good as long as none of the 3 things mention are present. The signal becomes annoying when trying to watch during the rain, snow or wind. All in all it has good detection greater than 50-60 miles away from the broadcast tower of a station. I would think for an area not subject to a lot of rain or bad weather it would be absolutely great.

. Cunningham, Ealing says

It does look cool, we could have hidden it behind the curtains, but it did not work in the way i expected. I live 5 miles away from cn tower, in toronto, that provides all transmission for uhf, vhf television, fm radio, microwave transmissions, fixed mobile systems, so i thought it would be great to buy a powerful indoor antenna to get all the channels provided. I had an old indoor antenna that only finds 6 channels any time i scan for channels, i wanted an upgrade and be able to get some extra hd channels. The winegar flatwave only found 3 channels! i placed it in every wall of my place, couldn't find more than 3 channels, so we are sending it back! . Not worth it!

I. Elizabeth, Barnet

Was not totally impressed with reception. Believe you could get the same reception with other antennas at lesser cost. We mounted the antenna high in the room near the ceiling which helped a lot. Thought amplification would be beneficial but did not see the difference from a lower cost non-amplified rca antenna. Would assume if we could mount the antenna higher the reception may improve. . So we think the antenna is over-priced for the difference expected, which is only slight. It did get more info-commercial stations at the higher end but that isn't what we were looking to receive.

. Sherry, Doncaster says

I already use an antennas direct db4 for over the air reception. I get most of the channels within a 40 mile range. In an attempt to receive all the major networks, i decided to try this winegard flatwave antenna. Not only did it fail to improve my reception, it failed to receive any channels. Thinking the antenna was defective, i contacted online store to replace it. Online store has awesome customer service. They quickly replaced the winegard antenna with a new winegard flatwave. The new antenna didn't work either! i know this problem was not my error. The instructions are simple and this is my 3rd ota antenna installation. I checked the installation of the amplfier and tested it with my old antenna. It worked with the old antenna but not the winegard antenna. I can only conclude that this winegard flatwave antenna has poor reception. I have a rca ant751 at my mountain cabin, where reception is horrible (tv fool said i would get no reception), and i get nbc, fox and pbs. I should have bought another one of those. But this winegard antenna had good reviews and looks cool with its small footprint. Don't let looks fool you. 35-40 miles from the broadcast towers, it does not work.

J. June, Indiana

I was looking for something to put in the bedroom since i just recently got rid of satellite tv and put up an outdoor antenna for our main tv. I was hoping this would fill the need of bringing in the major network channels of nbc, cbs, and abc which are broadcast from about 30 miles away, along with some of the ancillary stations. The problem is that we live a short distance from buffalo, new york and it is winter time now and once the wind blows, and the snow falls we're lucky to get three or four stations. If the weather is good though this little antenna is quite surprising. The reception is excellent for something so small, the picture is steady and the color is good. But if the wind blows at all i'm back to watching the roy rogers show in black and white with lots of wavy blackouts.

T. Neva, York says

It was promising. Who could complain with a thin high quality antenna you don't have to worry about the hassle or eyesore of mounting on the roof or in the attic. Well this fell short of the mark. Setup was simple though it was difficult to find the location in the home to get the best signal in order to get vhf channels (which seems to be the biggest limitation of these small antennas). The problem is my local fox station is broadcast on vhf. I live about 35 miles from most of the antennas and my house is on a bit of an angle so pointing directly south is difficult where the stations are located. Uhf channels came through clear as day. . Thanks online store for the great return policy. I'm not yet ready to cut the cord. Perhaps with better streaming options other than sling tv it will be a better option but to buy the antenna plus a dvr doesn't make short term financial sense. If you already had an external hard drive, roku boxes or other streaming boxes, an over the air dvr such as tivo roamio or tablo it would be easier to sample different antennas.

B. Eleanor, Torbay

I live about 25 miles away from a potential 52 channels near the sacramento, ca area. I mainly bought this antenna so i could watch the nfl playoffs this weekend. Unfortunately this "mousepad" only pulls in channel 10 and about nine other spanish and shopping channels. No fox, no cbs and no nbc. So that means no nfl playoffs on this worthless piece of technology. I will add that at least i was able to get an additional three channels of shopping and spanish tv by plugging in the ac adapter instead of using the tv's usb port but since it misses on all but one of our major networks i will be promptly returning it and if you live near the sacramento/folsom area don't say i didn't warn you! this thing would make a nice $50 mousepad though.

. Suzanne, Wigan says

I tried this antenna in two different locations. One was about 5-8 miles from most transmitters in a relatively flat location and the other was 7-10 miles from most transmitters in a very hilly location. In summary, the winegard flatwave worked just about the same as a low cost rca unamplified antenna ( $20) at both locations. . In the flat location i did pick up one additional station, but in the hilly location, the same stations were received with both antennas. I think there may have been fewer signal dropouts in the hilly location, but i can't say for sure. . Overall it is a decent antenna. Just don't expect miracles of picking up stations 50 miles away (or even 11 miles away for that matter! ) or significant differences from a lower cost antenna.

N. Alba, Tameside

Wow! i don't think i even have the words to explain my utter disappointment in this antenna. I had done a little research and decided on a clearstream amplified indoor antenna but they didn't have them in stock so i decided to pick up the winegard antenna. Company has supposedly been around for a long time making antennas, they have a lot of reviews and they're made in the usa! how could i go wrong with them right? . . I know mileage may vary when it come to antennas and placement is key. Here's the thing, i bough this to replace a flat antenna i bought three years ago. It is a mohu leaf, it is much smaller and has no amplification yet pulls in 40 channels (it just doesn't pull in my local abc, i'm in nyc). The. Winegard with amplification only pulls in 30 channels at best. Without amplification it pulls 3 channels. Wow. Just wow. . Needless to say i cannot in good conscience recommend this thing to anyone.

F. Smith, East Riding of Yorkshire says

After living with poor fm and no tv service here in the oregon outback (35 miles as the crow flies from bend) and reading the rave reviews on this product i thought my problems would be solved. I connected everything according to the instructions, only to find no channels (the tv signal is 35 miles away) and also no, none, nada fm reception when connected to the stereo. Even the loop antenna i have pulls in a couple fm stations; this antenna would not even pull in the strongest one! did i receive a dud? i returned it. I'm tired of wasting time and trying. I think i will string a wire to the roof. Previously i tried the esky hg995, which actually pulled in 5 ridiculous religious tv channels and quite a few stronger fm signals, but was so cheaply made and fragile i returned that too. There has to be a better antenna option other than a 15-foot yagi, right?

. Susan, Lancashire

I purchased the fl5500a amplified model. I am 35 miles or less from all the towers for the local channels in our region. I "receive" 20-28 channels depending on where i place the antenna. Unfortunately only 2 channels actually have good reception (our fox affiliate and one of the two pbs channels in our area) all the other channels have great pictures with excellent clarity for about 3-5 seconds and then they have heavy tiling or cut out completely for 1-2 seconds. . I only cared about one channel and that was our fox affiliate so i could watch the free ufc on fox cards. For that reason i am going to keep the antenna since it is a one time purchase and it is worth it for me to be able to watch the fights. We canceled cable 2 years ago and bought a roku and we love it. Between online store prime and n e t fl ix we have close to 800 titles in our queue's and we love getting to watch many of the shows from the 60's & 70's i grew up watching as well as the many excellent british shows that are available. . Back to the antenna. I have tried placing it in more than a dozen locations in our living room and no matter where i place it i still only receive the 2 channels i mentioned clear and uninterrupted. I am going to continue to try other locations, but i do not expect any better results. If i find some magic space in my living room and magically start receiving clear, uninterrupted reception on at least 12 or more channels i will amend my review.

Q. Shayna, Gateshead says

The feed towers are only about 23 miles but i've tried this in multiple locations in the areas with only one spot that seems to work but not continuously. It seems every day there is disrupted signal. Granted there are a number of miles between home and the towers and depending on the line of sight their could be something causing interference but i would think the power the amplification is supposed to provide more help than it does. In fact, we unplugged the power one day and the interference seemed to actually perform better. Unfortunately it seemed to work initially that we recycled the box or i would return it. It's a shame the ratings are so good, but from years back and other sites recommended it. Now we have to buy locally so we can return it.

This is a piece of junk no matter where i put it in my house i get zero channels. I tried near the tv, near the outside walls, placed in a window, placed on the ceiling nope nothing. After spending a good two hours of trying different options i gave up. Do not waste your time or money on this junk.

Review is for the flatwave amped fl5500a 50 mile indoor model. I dropped cable recently and switched to a live tv streaming service. I bought this to supplement that. . I am only 23 miles from towers in my area but couldn't reliably get reception on all channels with this product which advertises a 50 mile range. Every time i ran the scan a different group of channels would register. Certain uhf channels would always be picked up, others were intermittent, and vhf channels were non-existent. In my city this meant i couldn't get pbs and the local channel which carries some baseball games which was the entire reason for the purchase. Those channels aren't available on any live streaming service. The picture quality on channels it did pickup was outstanding but the audio dropped out a lot. I couldn't imagine watching a show that way or this replacing some form of subscription. . I had high hopes for this antemna but it couldn't pickup the few channels i cared about. I'm happy for folks who are able to get this to work fully.

I bought this as a gift to my parents for their cabin in bfe alaska. Former situation was that they only go 5 channels on rabbit ears and had to do yoga moves to tune in (which is hard for people in their 70's! ). Of course dad waited till i got there to assist with the install. Uh, plug it in just like you did the one that is there! fast forward, i am there, plug it up. Nadda. Hmmm, not good considering the claims that this is the best amplified antenna. Double check all connections, add yoga moves, and get two channels. Finally i found the solution. Put it back in the box and print the return label. That worked! the old rabbit ears worked better even if you had to do a few stretching exercises in between. . Just to be fair: i only get one bar of service on my cell phone at the ak place and the nearest neighbors are 7 miles. If you are a city dweller (like i am most of the time) this will work just fine to get american idol and whatever other crap you watch.

Supposed to have a 50 mile range. I live in the central valley in california. Nothing but flat land out here. According to the antenna website, i have several stations that are about 30 miles away. It didn't pick up a single station. Not one. I of course re-connected everything, tried multiple positions with the antenna, and sought support with no luck. It's a bummer as this is rated well online, and i'm cutting the cord from cable. This might work well for stations that are close to you (10 miles or less) otherwise save your money and buy a better product if your far from the stations.

Kinda bummed this thing cost me a lot more than it should have. I have a very high roof that's difficult to access, so i had to pay for someone to install it. After the installation, i found out it was defective. In the meantime, i had been using a cheap rca indoor antenna in the attic that did a pretty good job but got choppy every now and again. . I emailed winegard support they replied once then i never heard back. I called their support, and they agreed that it was broken and they could send me a replacement. I told them that would be cool and all but i didn't want to pay again to have someone replace it and asked if they could just discount one and send it to me, no brackets or anything and i would just install it in my attic. He said he couldn't authorize that and would have a supervisor call me back. Again no reply from the company. . I gave up trying to work with winegard, and i processed the return through online store and had the antenna replaced. My signal strength has improved a bit, but not much more than i was getting with my cheap antenna. I wish i would have saved all the money and just stuck with what i had originally.

I live in los angeles. When i first got the fl5500a, i was informed that the best place for it was next to a window. I placed it there and it located no local channels. I expected that because the only window in the room faces west and the transmitters are located in a northeastern direction. I then placed the antenna high on a south facing interior wall expecting similar results. Instead, it located 113 local channels. I checked the signal strength of these channels and most of them, while not being extremely strong, were still acceptable. I tried a few other locations in the room but that one produced the best results. . However, the next time i checked out the local channels, many of them that previously produced a decent signal now could not be reached at all. Subsequent tries were also hit and miss. Some channels were accessible while many were not. And not all channels reacted the same way every time i tried to look at them. I wanted something that would produce consistent access to my local channels and in that respect, the antenna failed. . I therefore came to the conclusion that if you're in the right place for it to work, this antenna could be excellent. However, if you're in a place where the antenna can't function properly, it will be very disappointing. Because it behaved in such an inconsistent basis, my only option was to return it. . If someone is looking for an effective indoor antenna, i would suggest that they try the fl5000a first. I think it's probably the best antenna of its kind available. If it doesn't work, online store will always take it back-minus small return shipping charges. If i could, i would have rated the fl5500a both five stars because of its great potential and one star because it may not work at all. I settled for a middle ground of three stars.
