For all of those cord cutters, Newegg has Hisgadget HDTV Outdoor Amplified Antenna HD TV 36dB Rotor Remote 360? UHF/VHF/FM 150 Miles [newegg.com] for $27.99 shipped.

There are some very favorable reviews.

Not a bad price for a 150 mile range antenna.

You can check your address for what kind of signal and which direction to aim the antenna at TVFool [tvfool.com]

It's probably an overkill for most people in urban and suburban areas, but it will be great for people in the rural areas.

Here's the same model on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Esky-Contro...et+antenna It's identical and sold by Hisgadget but for some reason has a different name.

I would say the reviews are average at best. 20% give it 1 star.

Problem with Amazon is that half of the reviews are not even for this model.

According to Amazon it is model HG-995, reviews are for a bunch of Hisgadget models.

150 miles range? Must be just for the FM reception.......

I'm using one of those flat indoor antenna and picking up 4 or 5 HD channels and about 15 other channels that nobody watches. It flickers when the weather is not ideal. I'm about 15 miles from downtown Atlanta. Do you think this upgrade worth it?

How are these usually mounted? Post or attaching to house? I've never mounted an outdoor antenna. Thinking about cutting the cable...

It will more than do what you're asking. You'll probably end up picking up channels from other cities as well. Just need to aim it in the right direction.

This link should help. Use the signal analysis to figure out which direction to point.

Pricier, but this is the antenna I have and I love it! I pick up almost every channel in my area and I'm in a valley. (Mounted in my attic)

I can vouch for this one. I took the dish off my house and mounted this in place because it uses the same mount. Used the old dish cables (already ran) to my box and split to 5 tv's in the house and I get many stations crystal clear. I live in los angeles county.

Installed the same antenna over the holidays. Got rid of cable. Works well with one tv but with a splitter, signal is too low for two tvs. Waiting for a rca preamp ordered from amazon. This antenna has a preamp already but maybe harder to install. Like the guys above I just took off my dish and used the existing mount and cables.

I tried this one 4 years ago and sadly it didn't work for me. For some reason the guy across the street can get a connection, but I figure the trees are lined up right in the way at my house.

Worth a shot. I tried to upgrade my antenna a few weeks ago and actually got worse reception with a more expensive and highly rated antenna. Will try with this for the price. I am been doing OTA HD with Media center forever. I can't imagine paying for cable anymore.

I use an unamplified flat antenna and get about 30 channels (In Acworth, GA). Are you surrounded by a lot of buildings?

do you still need a digital converter box to go with this? I have an old tv and no cable. As far as I know, I have to have a digital converter box AND an antenna in order to pick up anything.
