Good price on one of the slim antennas. These work great and can be easily hidden.

This can be interpreted as "Up to" 50 miles. Like, lose "up to" 250lbs with this pill. Zero is a valid value in that equation.

To get 50 miles out of this thing, you'd pretty much have to have a completely direct, unimpeded path to the tower, and it would have to be broadcasting at a specific angle to overcome the curvature of the earth, etc. The reality is you're going to have objects in between you and the towers that cause reflections, blockages, etc. So it's going to be extremely YMMV.

For comparison, I have a 7 foot directional antenna that is good for "up to 100 miles" mounted high up in my attic. It pulls in things pretty well, but not everything. I'm just over 30 miles from the towers, causing them to all be within a couple of degrees from each other.

Reviews are mixed on this, most people say they only got a few channels, so I truly doubt this is really able to receive broadcasts from a 50 mile radius.

OP might want to put the 50 Mile Range in title. That's helpful for those who just want to see the title before going into the actual thread.

From my quick look at these antennas I happen to be looking at yesterday it looks like around 60 miles for these flat leaf types, and over 150 miles for the larger metal pole ones

I got a 35mile one from the same deal. I got all the major HD channels even a channel whose tower is 37 miles away from my house. So antennas are really ymmv.

For those who want to try, there're many websites that show you how many channels you may get and how far the towers are. eg. https://nocable.org/

I ordered the amazon basics antenna that is similar to this. I prefer that one as you can put your own higher quality cable on it. I didnt get the "amplified" version because I think they are a waste of money. Get the 35 mile range one then get yourself a rg6 quad shielded cable. They have less signal loss and the quad shield should help limit interference.

50 miles if its mounted on a 20 foot tall pole outside on the roof. Otherwise, 5 miles at best indoors.
