Our take on the Boyo VT-MH

by Zak Billmeier

Boyo's VT-MH TV tuner lets you haul in local digital television broadcasts on your next road trip. Connect it to your in-dash or rear seat monitor, mount the included antenna, and you can grab TV signals — great for an RV or tailgating before a game. An included remote lets you flip channels like you're home on your couch.

You'll find participating stations in cities all across the United States. Push the "Scan" button, and the receiver automatically locates stations in your area. The package also includes an antenna that mounts on your vehicle's roof or trunk.
