FlatWave Indoor HDTV Antenna

FlatWave Amped Indoor HDTV Antenna

Winegard FlatWave Indoor HDTV Antenna

Winegard FlatWave Amped Indoor HDTV Antena

Winegard FlatWave Indoor HDTV Antenna
Access free over-the-air channels to watch top-rated shows, live

The Winegard FlatWave Amped Indoor HDTV Antenna's enhanced dual band antenna features a state-of-the-art, ultra-low-noise preamplifier embedded directly at the elements, where 100% of the signal is amplified. The innovative USB power supply provides energy savings by only consuming power while the TV is powered on.

Long Range Amplified Indoor Antenna

The FlatWave Amped offers an extended reception range of up to 50 miles--ideal for smaller communities, or areas where conventional antennas have trouble getting a signal. The revolutionary Clear Circuit technology provides an incredibly low-noise figure of only 1.0dB, letting you receive more channels and minimizing pixelization and dropouts. Dual band reception means you don't miss out on channels that UHF-only antennas can't pick up. Install it in minutes and say goodbye to big monthly cable bills.

Free HDTV Channels

90% of the most-watched TV shows are available on local stations. Why pay for the same programming you can get for free and in high definition with the FlatWave? Many local stations now broadcast in crystal-clear high definition, and also broadcast audio in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, giving you the ultimate home theatre experience--but with no monthly bills. No monthly fees, no contract, no installation fees, no credit checks and no cancellation fees. You can save an average of $1,000 per year by switching to FlatWave.

Unbelievably Razor Thin

The FlatWave is less than 2/100 of an inch thick (0.43mm). You won't believe how thin the FlatWave antenna is. Designed with black on one side and white on the other, the FlatWave can be flipped to display the side that best suits your home decor.

Quick and Easy Setup

1. Place the antenna in the desired location.
2. Connect the coax cable coming from antenna to the "Antenna In" coax port on your TV.
3. Plug in the amplifier using the supplied mini USB power plug or 110V adapter.
4. Run a channel scan on your TV.

Watch TV Your Way

The FlatWave is a perfect companion to an Apple TV, Boxee, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, or other streaming video and DVR devices. Combine a FlatWave antenna with your favorite streaming device and get live and on-demand programming with no monthly bills.

The FlatWave is still a great solution for your home if you don't wish to cancel your cable or satellite programming. Use the FlatWave in areas of your house or garage that are not connected to your cable or satellite system. Or, use the FlatWave for superior HD quality viewing and for additional programming that may not be available through cable or satellite. The FlatWave also works as a great back-up in situations where reception may be lost.

What Channels Does the FlatWave Amped Receive?

FlatWave antennas deliver free over-the-air programming to your television. While the channels in your area may vary, there are more channels being broadcast for free than ever before. In most areas you can receive your local ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS channels as well as new "digital subchannels" that broadcast 24 hour news, weather, kids programming, and your favorite syndicated shows. This includes 90% of the most watched television shows including programs such as NBC Sunday Night Football, NCIS, Dancing With The Stars, 60 Minutes and more.

In larger markets many other channels are available including 24 hour sports programming, 24 hour classic movie channels, travel and dining networks, 24 hour music channels and more.

As a Mohu Leaf user in Toronto and having a lot of success I opted to go with the seemingly similar Winegard unit to assist a friend in their attempt to "cut the cable".

Generally speaking both units out of the box are similar, however the Winegard's "thin" coax is nice for tucking the cable away under a baseboard.

The WInegard unit generally speaking feels a bit more stiff yet thinner than the Leaf, and in direct sunlight seemingly warmed up a lot quicker.
My advice to users of either is to opt for the black side facing in if you are opting for a window mount.

The double sided tape that came with the Winegard is much more of a pain if you plan to reposition and largely becomes useless after a move or two, I would suggest grabbing a package of double sided foam squares along with the unit. The Leaf came with Velcro and some pins which have seemingly held up after about a half dozen repositions.

In terms of the performance itself;
In ideal conditions in West Toronto I can secure 23 channels in an optimal scan, yet with the WInegard placed in the exact same position it was able to secure 21 channels with the two lost being the channels that seemingly had towers the furthest distance away (Fox & Some sort of Non-Weather Channel Weather Channel).

Either unit still performed far better than any unpowered unit or the Mohu Curve.

For the price difference its not a bad alternative;

We are very happy with the Winegard Antenna and decided to “cut the cord” and stop paying $100+ monthly for cable. Couldn’t be easier! 1. Plug the cord in to the TV and wall. 2. Place the antenna in our window aimed towards the CN Tower. 3. Do a scan on the TV to find channels. Bingo! 21 stations of Free TV in Mississauga. (CBC, Global, City TV, etc.) Bye Bye Cable company.

I received 3-4 over-the-air HD channels depending on placement in my concrete/steel/glass apartment located about 13 floors above ground, one wall of windows. We are facing North... Toronto's CN Tower to the South of a us a few km/miles away - we do not have line of sight. Unfortunately only received 3 to 4 channels - all channels that I have no interest in watching. You mileage may vary of course - but in my case the item is going back.

5-stars for Amazon's effortless handling of the return. Free shipping of the item to me was fast.

We live rurally quite a further distance than most from the local broadcast towers so we have had some trouble getting acceptable reception quality. The Winegard Flatwave performed quite favourably hung in the front window compared to another amplified antenna we have on a 30ft high external tower. Both antennae have problems with signal drop out during heavy rain or snow but this is likely more a problem with our location that with the antennae themselves.

If you won't want an external antenna or simply can't have one then I recommend the Winegard Flatwave (amplified) provided you can hang it in a window that faces your broadcast tower(s). While the size of the Flatwave does obscure the window somewhat, it has a low profile so that it can hang behind blinds without interfering with them.

Great Antenna. Very thin, nice and sleek. Can be completely hidden behind my mounted TV, and with no Cords visible, as the USB provides the amplification.

I've got about 4-5 pure HD channels in downtown Ottawa. Not sure if it is less or more than other Antennas, but I'm happy, as for a flat fee I still have something to watch.

I ordered this antenna after doing some on-line reviews and finding that it was near the top in the value/performance ratio. We are moving o a 3rd floor condo and would love to cut the cable so I first tried a set of old school rabbit ears attached to a Sony 32 " LCD. I received 7 channels with this setup. So I ordered this antenna, which was received in about 4 days with Free Shipping. I hooked it up using the USB port on the TV to power the antenna and ran a scan at ground level in 3 directions which were easily accessible. I received 12 channels (Global came in twice) in the HD and SD formats, and all were stable and strong on a cloudy day with blowing snow.

So this looks like a keeper. I will try it on the 2nd floor for the next few months to see how good it is in a long term trial at a higher elevation.

The retail price of this antenna elsewhere is about $100. Through Amazon I paid about $61 with free shipping.so this is a good deal. It came in generic rather than retail packaging and next to zero information, but how much do you need?

The very long coaxial cable on this product is key as it lets you position the antenna in the most optimal location. In the condo we will have windows facing South and West and there IS a difference based on my very early trials. If you need to extend the cable with a junction fitting, the signal losses are significant so avoiding this is a biggie.

This is a great antenna at a great price based on first impressions. Most of the professional reviews support this as being the best antenna in its category. I expect that an exterior, directional antenna would be better than this interior, omni-directional antenna, but the condo will not allow it, so this appears to be a very good option. Good buy in, my opinion.
