Whether you wall-mount it or place it horizontally or vertically on a table or counter top, you'll be able to enjoy your favorite network shows broadcast in crystal-clear high definition without paying a penny in monthly subscriptions.

Works Fine, But Not Great

Written By JackInBrooklyn, Brooklyn, NY on Monday, November 11, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I had a table-top, amplified Terq antenna that was not quite good enough to get my local TV channels. I get occasional drop-outs on some stations. I called ChannelMaster and based on their research, they recommended this FLATenna. It did not work better than the Terq. I kept it only because it did work on my TV upstairs (signal reception is better there...I had old rabbit ears and they work fine) and I like the FLATenna better than having rabbit ears sticking out.
Doesn't work as well as ChannelMaster said it would.
