FlatWave Indoor HDTV Antenna

FlatWave Amped Indoor HDTV Antenna

Winegard FlatWave Indoor HDTV Antenna
Light weight, razor-thin antenna with a state-of-the-art, ultra-low-noise preamplifier. Learn more

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.

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.

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 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.

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 live in a condo in downtown Toronto, with an obstructed view of the CN Tower.

Previously, I was using a $20 Philips indoor/outdoor antenna which didn't provide vary reliable reception. The FL5500A FlatWave greatly improved signal quality and even allowed me to pull in [several] additional stations, for a total of 23 channels.

Can cheaper antenna provide the same results? I can't say but I can say that I'm entirely satisfied with the Winegard; it met my expectations...and then some. 11 HDTV channels for a fixed cost of $100?!?! That sounds worth it to me.

I pick up 17 HD channels with this antenna - it will vary based on your location and where you place this. Refer to tvfool.com to gauge how many channels you will receive based on the broadcast towers. Love the slim profile and ability to hide out of sight on the window. The build is pretty flimsy so careful when moving it about. I plugged the usb for the amplifier into the TV, rather than from the wall, and it powers it just fine. Decent alternative to the popular Mohu Leaf.

I was a bit skeptical after trying a variety of indoor antennas already. The farthest HD station from me is 35 miles on CH9 VHF and this little beauty pulled it in without a hitch. Mind you I had to point it in the general direction of the source which was a bit of a stretch when placed in a window in my living room. But it works fine and I am pleased.
