FlatWave Amped Indoor HDTV Antenna
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
A four-step setup process gets you watching your favorite shows in minutes, with no assembly and no tools.
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.

I now get City TV, CBS, CHCH, Global, ABC, Escape, TVO, and many more (as they say).
The number of channels seems to vary depending on the time of day you scan and, as others have said, the position of the device is critical. Even moving it an inch or two one way or the other can change things dramatically.
If considering a purchase take a look at tvfool.com where you can input your address to see what transmissions are available.
I cut the cable cord over a year ago, and decided to try this 'just to see'.
I am very glad I did.
I have also purchased another antenna for another TV I will be testing tomorrow. This one is much cheaper but is also amplified in the same way. Both make the same range claims.
I tried putting the antenna beside the TV as shown in one of the pictures, but that gave me no channels. After putting it up in the window with the handy little sticky tabs provided, I got the 15 channels. The video and the audio is very clear. Occasionally a channel or two will break up and you'll lose audio, and part of the video gets pixellated, but it comes back in just a second or two.
I like how the antenna comes with the plug to plug into the electrical outlet, but can also plug into the USB slot on the TV.
While the 18 foot coax seems like it it might be too long and you'll have to figure out where loop the extra coax, it's really not even enough length after you put the antenna in the window, run the coax down the side of the window and try to run it along the baseboard to the TV. I really do wish the coax was longer. I can't even put an additional length of coax onto it to make it easier to run, because the amp feature requires the additional power, and needs to be near either the TV's USB port, or the electrical outlet. My coax is hanging through the air to get from the window to the TV. Frankly, that's the only drawback of the antenna and why I had to give it 4 stars instead of 5.
