You do not have to completely miss TV even if you are not subscribing to any cable networks. There are usually many free over the air channels broadcast in every area. All you need is a good antenna to capture these channels and play them through your TV. You do not need to fix up a big antenna on your terrace like the old days. A small indoor antenna with a good receiver and transmitter will do the trick for you. The Mohu Leaf 50 Amplified Indoor Antenna can help you access over the air channels over a radius of 50miles. If any of the channels have a broadcasting tower in that range, you will be able to get those channels and watch them on your TV without having to pay for any cable or other TV package subscriptions. Remember that the free channels can be enjoyed this way and not the pay to watch the channels. There are a few things you will have to look for when you choose your indoor antenna.
Quality Of Picture
The basic feature all of us look for when using antennas is that the picture quality should be good. The indoor HDTV antennas can provide high definition picture quality. The Mohu Leaf 50 Amplified Indoor Antenna can provide you over the air HD channels for free. It provides full HD (1080p) on all supporting TV channels. It uses the company’s own registered trademark Clean Peak filter to provide better quality picture. Look for an antenna that provides you a higher gain (greater than 10dB) and a lower noise range.
The setup of antenna should be simple. You should not be required to go around your whole property performing stunts to look for the right spot. You should be able to get a few channels from most locations in your home. Multi-directional antennas are best suited indoors. The setup should be as simple as plug and play. When buying antenna, make sure all the items required for setup including the coaxial cable and plugs are made available with the antenna.
Not all of the free over the air channels broadcast in the same frequency bands. Even though most channels use UHF bands nowadays, there are a few channels that use VHF bands too. Hence, you should choose an antenna that provides you coverage of both these bands. In New York, for instance, you can get CBS, NBC and Fox on UHF whereas PBS and ABC can be received only if your antenna is capable of receiving VHF too.
The radius is the distance within which your antenna can receive broadcast signals. Some antennas can cover as less a mile which can be called more as an amplifier to amplify signals received by another compatible antenna. Some of the long range antennas can receive signals up to 50 miles.
