About the Mohu Leaf 50

For "cord-cutters," this antenna legend lives on

The Leaf® 50 is one of of Mohu's best performing super-thin TV antennas. It mounts easily to a wall, or just about anywhere, really. You can even hide it behind a picture on the wall. The Leaf 50 can receive free over-the-air HDTV broadcasts from multiple directions, so you don't have to move it to pick up signals from different TV towers.

Mohu Leaf 50

Mohu Leaf 50 mounted on a window.

The Leaf® 50 is one of of Mohu's best performing super-thin TV antennas. It mounts easily to a wall, or just about anywhere, really. You can even hide it behind a picture on the wall. The Leaf 50 can receive free over-the-air HDTV broadcasts from multiple directions, so you don't have to move it to pick up signals from different TV towers.

The Leaf 50's sophisticated super-thin design is modeled after a mud flap antenna designed for the U.S. military. It can pull in stations in the UHF and high-band VHF ranges (channels 7-51). You'll generally get the best reception if you can place the antenna fairly high on a wall or close to a window, away from the TV and other components. The Leaf 50 is white on one side and black on the other, and is also paintable for even greater room décor adaptability.

Mohu's signal amplifier boosts reception range

The difference between this model and the Leaf 30 is Mohu's high-performance antenna amplifier. It uses patent-pending technology to increase reception range while filtering out the RF noise that can harm picture quality. Compared to the Leaf 30 alone, most people find that the Leaf 50's antenna/amplifier combo lets them receive more stations, while also producing a clearer picture on stations with less-than-perfect reception. The compact amplifier module connects between the Leaf antenna and your TV.

You have a couple of options for powering the amplifier. There's a mini USB port on the amplifier module, which allows you to power it off of any standard USB port on your TV — the USB-to-mini-USB cable is included. The advantage of USB power is that the amplifier will only draw power when the TV is turned on, instead of 24/7. If you don't have an available USB port on your TV, the amplifier also includes a regular AC power adapter, which you can plug into any standard wall outlet.


Product highlights:

  • receives digital and analog TV signals — high-band VHF (channels 7-13) and UHF (channels 14-51)
  • range is 50 miles

More details on the Mohu Leaf 50

Product Research


Mud-Flap style Antenna: The Mohu Leaf 50 indoor antenna is paper thin and modeled after a discreet mud-flap style antenna designed for the US Military.

Amplifier w/ Clean Peak Filter Technology: The included digital amplifier with Clean Peak Filter Technology is designed to amplify TV stations and filter out any RF signals that can hinder picture quality. The digital amplifier allows you to pull in a clearer picture, more stations, and increase overall performance.

USB/AC Powered: The Leaf 50 antenna's digital amplifier is powered via an integrated USB cable, which allows you to power the amplifier using an open USB port on the back of your TV. The advantage of doing so is that the amplifier will only draw power when the TV is turned on, eliminating parasitic power consumption when the amplifier isn't needed. If you do not have an open USB port on the back of your TV, the Leaf 50 also includes a power cube that will enable you to power the amplifier using any standard AC wall outlet.

50 Mile Range:  The Leaf 50 antenna performs best within 50 miles of TV transmission towers. Go here and enter in your zip-code to find out which free over-the-air VHF/UHF channels are available in your area.

Multi-Directional: Because the Mohu Leaf 50 is multi-direction, there is no need to point the antenna in any particular direction.

Mounting Options: The Leaf 50 indoor antenna mounts on the wall, behind a picture, or just about anywhere to enable you to receive free over-the-air broadcasts.

Reversible & Paintable: The Leaf 50 is also  reversible (black or white) and paintable to match your room's decor.

16' RF-Coax Cable: The Mohu Leaf 50 includes a 16' RG59-coaxial cable, giving you the flexibility to place the antenna much higher on a wall or close to a window for optimal reception.

Will this antenna work with a metal roof?
[ Elma  Mar 31, 2021 ]
2 answers
Don't know. I don't have a metal roof. I would think it would.
[ David  Mar 31, 2021 ]
I do not have a metal roof but am facing south over mountains in western NC. The wind and weather does affect reception however mine is aimed through trees with hills and still picks up good 90% of the time.
[ JOSEPH B  Mar 31, 2021 ]
WHat is the performance difference witht the + versus the 50?
[ robert  Nov 18, 2019 ]
1 answer
Extended range for the +. I bought a leaf '50' since I was using it in a metro area. With many nearby stations. I got good results for the price offered. Clean design. Good luck.
[ Norman A.  Nov 18, 2019 ]
How do I install the Mohu Leaf 50?
[ Sandy  Oct 01, 2019 ]
3 answers
Very quick install. Plug into electrical outlet and into back of cable hookup on tv. Attach cable from back of tv to antenna base. Then check for antenna strength before mounting on wall.
[ Mike  Oct 01, 2019 ]
I installed it in a window and it just adhered to the glass.
[ Eugene  Oct 01, 2019 ]
Plug it in the tv and provide usb power. Then try a specific orientation and scan for channels. If you are missing channels try again with another orientation.
[ Magda  Oct 01, 2019 ]
I am thinking of cutting the cable. I have a Sony XBR900, and a Sony 4K upscaling receiver. If I go with this antenna, does the signal go through the receiver, as does the cable and DVD player?
[ Steve  Apr 01, 2018 ]
2 answers
Not sure if I can provide the correct answer as I have a Yamaha RX-A2070 receiver which has an ARC HDMI port. You can plug the Mohu into your TV's ARC port. How the Sony receiver has to be set up is probably a question for Crutchfield tech support.
[ David  Apr 09, 2018 ]
You must hook this antenna into something with a tuner. That's usually only on TVs. So hook it up to your Sony TV and use the audio out or HDMI ARC to your receiver.
[ Brad  Apr 08, 2018 ]
What are the RF ranges this antenna is capable of receiving? I thought this information would be shown in the specs but I guess not.
[ John  Oct 28, 2017 ]

I think I know what is being asked, but I'm not familiar with an appropriate information source. I went to the FCC's DTV Reception Map, put in my zipcode and generated a list of high-def broadcasts for my area.
[ ROBERT  Oct 30, 2017 ]
Not sure what ranges but with my old antenna I got 3 stations now I am getting 19. Location 17 miles west of Utaca NY. Hunting camp. Pulling one NY city channel. Fox.
[ Bryan  Oct 30, 2017 ]
The TV channels are broadcast on either VHF or UHF. I recommend using the Mohu website tool that can accurately calculate what channels are within range of your location. It can predict what channels you are likely to be able to receive with each of their antennas. I have both the Leaf 50 and Leaf 65 and I think that the range claimed by Mohu are realistic.
[ RANDY J  Oct 30, 2017 ]
There's a government web site that will tell you. Google reception for antennas
[ David  Oct 30, 2017 ]
Can I plug this antenna into the cable splitter box and use to provide signals to each room or do I need one of these for every tv?
[ Chad  Jan 07, 2017 ]
1 answer
I put the antenna in our attic of or 2 story house. I ran the antenna cable adjacent to an upstairs TV and plugged the antenna booster into an electrical outlet. The other end went to a splitter that feed the TV and a splitter in the attic. From the attic splitter I then feed another TV on the 2nd floor and the main TV on the 1st floor. All works well and all TVs can be on and tuned to a different channel.
[ DAVID  Jan 09, 2017 ]
If I already have an antenna on the roof will I need the Leaf as well? And I was wondering, do I use it in conjunction with an amplified splitter?
[ Carol  Feb 15, 2016 ]
2 answers
I purchased this product because I don't have an antenna on roof, research said that a roof antenna was the ultimate way to go, but I didn't want to get into all that, ie; buying right one/size installation..... so I opted for the Leaf. Found the sticky pads to attach to window or wall aren't very strong over long time so I use a fine nylon thread to hang from inside my curtains off rod, not heavy at all, and it came with its own splitter and that does "boost" a little bit more for rec'v signals. I rec'v over 40 channels, on the MA RI line so now I get both Fox new, Boston news weather AND Rhode Island news weather. I was thinking of buying another one for portable TV when and if power ever goes out.
[ ALICE  Feb 23, 2016 ]
The Leaf is an antenna so, if you already have an antenna that pulls in all your available local channels, then, no, you won't need to add the Leaf. If you have multiple tuners to connect from your single antenna, yes, a splitter/amplifier is great way to do that: I hope that helps! My Bio:

Lainn M: Can you use a longer cable then what comes with it? My tv is down the basement and i would like to put it in a window on the main floor .
[ Lainn M.  Mar 03, 2015 ]
8 answers
Cable that came with it Is quite long, but it appears to be an average cable, maybe could purchase longer similar cable, I believe could do the same, worth the try because we love ours.
[ ALICE  Mar 18, 2015 ]
I don't know why not it's almost just like a regular antenna
[ Ritch  Mar 05, 2015 ]
Thanks so much that's exactly what i was thinking of doing.
[ Lainn M.  Mar 05, 2015 ]
I have not done so myself, but I see no reason why you can't. As I'm sure you already know, be sure you buy a cable that has both ends already on the cable. Attaching the threaded ends yourself would not be easy. You may find as I did that you may gain and loose different stations depending on the location and position of the antenna requiring you decide on which station your willing to not receive. As I moved mine across the wall I found that just 18 inches would make a difference. Try every available position to get the most stations you can. Good luck!
[ HARRY K  Mar 04, 2015 ]
It has a standard coax connector to connect to the tv, so a coax splicer is all you need to extend the cable. For a really long cable run, (50'+) you may need an in-line booster, but it should work fine without one.
[ Scott R.  Mar 04, 2015 ]
I haven't dealt with that specific issue but in my general experiences with cables, the longer the cable the greater the potential for signal loss. I would only do as you are thinking if I had no other choice for antenna location. In addition, I purchased another brand for a second TV antenna connection and it provides better signal strength and less buffering than the Leaf 50. Check out the Winegard FL5500Y, Flat Wave Amplified HDTV Indoor antenna, it is my first choice based on reception and signal strength.
[ Dwight A.  Mar 04, 2015 ]
I did on mine, I actually have it going to a splitter & it picks up stations on 3 separate tvs and 2 are in the basement, while the antenna itself is mounted on first floor. The extra length coax it goes thru is probably @ 25' in length.
[ Jay  Mar 04, 2015 ]
My Leaf is located within 3 feet of my TV in an upstairs bedroom against an interior wall, not near a window. Reception is good (pick up about 20 broadcast channels) and picture is superb! I'm no technophile, but I would think the length of the cable would have little effect.
[ Geoffrey  Mar 04, 2015 ]
If this is installed behind a wall mounted TV, will it still work as intended or will the TV interfere with it being so close?
[ Wesley  Nov 13, 2014 ]
6 answers
I suppose ireception may also be affected by how much space between the back of the TV and the wall to which the antenna is mounted. Mine is located behind, but above the TV. The back of the TV is less than 2 inches from the wall. The TV is located in an upstairs corner bedroom in a single suburban house. I receive about 20 channels. Picture clarity and resolution, in HD no less, is way better than cable. Hope this helps.
[ Geoffrey  Nov 25, 2014 ]
I installed it above the TV on the wall so as to place it as high as possible. However, before I "permanently" installed it with the include push pins I held it behind the TV and everything worked well. That said, my TV is on a wall mount that is flexible so the TV is about 9" away from the wall in front of a recumbent bicycle.
[ Karl  Nov 14, 2014 ]
We did not install it behind a TV so we can't answer the question. It did work OK when it was close to a window and up the wall about 7 feet high.
[ HARRY E  Nov 13, 2014 ]
Hi Wesley, I just installed the Mohu Leaf 50 on my TV. I had to try different places within the house to get the most channels. I found that placing the leaf in a south window works the best. You will have to hide the cable the best you can. I am getting 11 channels that are very clear. You will have to do a channel search to see how many you can receive. Your TV will tell you how strong the signal is for each channel. If signals are week, move your antenna. Good Luck
[ MELVIN  Nov 13, 2014 ]
I can not answer that question specifically, but would not suggest such installation. From my current experiences, the immediate issue would be unobstructed placement of the antenna. Any objects blocking the antenna from the broadcast station signal will cause "buffering". I have had the Leaf 30 in addition to the 50, both work best if installed in a window with no interior or external obstructions. In addition, the antenna found multiple station broadcast in my area, but only a few have signal strength strong enough to view clearly.
[ Dwight A.  Nov 13, 2014 ]
I tried to hold antenna behind TV, mounted on wall near TV and window glass. Reception is the best if it's on window. It does not work well if it's behind TV.
