Thanks to the advancements in technology, every piece of electronics is shrinking in size. Right from computers to antennas, the size of the devices has shrunk a lot making it possible to be included in the homes without hassles. The indoor antennas have also become quite small in size. We have moved away from the big bulky box antennas to ultra thin antennas that can be hidden inside the palm. Even though the size has shrunk, the features and popularity of the indoor antennas have increased. Indoor antennas are now able to receive signals as well as outdoor antennas. Some of the indoor antennas also come with an amplifier. These antennas can not only receive the signals broadcast from the towers in a wide radius, but they can amplify the received signal so that even the slightest signal can be displayed as a wonderful picture on your TV. There are some things you should consider when you buy your indoor antennas. The list below can help you make the perfect choice for you.
LOCATION– Your location is one of the most important factors which will decide the kind and model of antenna you will buy. If you live in a metro area, you might be satisfied with an indoor antenna that has a small range but a better filter and noise reduction property. If you live in a rural area where it is difficult to receive any signal, you might have to look for an indoor or even an outdoor antenna which can receive signals from long distance. You can make use of websites that list details of over the air channels available in any area to know the channels available to you and at what range.

DESIGN– The indoor antennas are available in a variety of design and sizes. A reversible antenna lets you place the antenna face up or face down according to your choice. It is also possible to pain the antenna in a color so as to suit your home décor.
FEATURES– The important features to look for are the HD support, gain, noise reduction and the frequency bands covered. Most of the popular indoor and outdoor antennas offer HD support. That is if the TV supports HD videos and your antenna supports HD, you will be able to watch HD channels available for free from the national and local networks. Choose a multi-directional antenna so that you do not have to point the antenna in a particular direction.
