Want to watch more channels without an extra monthly bill? The Vansky digital antenna can help.
This digital antenna lets you access ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Univision, CNN, Fox and other channels for one low price. And according to dozens of customer reviews, Vansky’s 1080p digital antenna is easy to set up and doesn’t take up much space — you can put it on a window or wall facing the nearest tower and it has a detachable amplifier that can be disconnected if you’re within 30 miles of the nearest tower.
“Placement is important,” notes one Amazon review. “I went from 6 channels to 50 by moving the location.”
Between the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl, an antenna could come in handy for football fans and sports lovers in general. But regardless of whether you’re a sports fan, reality TV lover or casual TV watcher, Vansky’s antenna might just be the answer to your streaming troubles.
It has a detachable signal amplifier for “maximum signal reception,” and a 16.5-foot coaxial cable with a range of up to 250 miles, per the product description. Want to save up to 26% off? Apply the instant coupon at checkout for an additional 5% off the sale price.
The antenna worked so well, one person even got rid of cable. “Goodbye Xfinity bill for $200 a month. I installed this new digital antenna and I get 73 channels crystal clear I do not get ESPN CNN TNT or other live broadcast sports channels. I live in Seattle and get great reception for zero dollars a month.”
Vansky has wracked up over 16,000 customer ratings, has a 4-star review at Amazon, and works better than some of the more expensive options available, according to one shopper. “Very impressed. Can’t believe the clarity of the picture for over the air,” reads an Amazon review. “Regular channels look much better than Comcast. Highly highly recommend!! Especially for the price!”
Another customer review titled ‘does the job,’ explained how the antenna has been useful for watching football games. “We use a streaming service instead of cable but we don’t get local channels. This is a problem for watching live NFL games. I purchased this antenna to get the basic NBC, CBS, ABC channels. It works great. Problem solved.”
Another shopper added, “I live in a pretty hilly area and this product was truly a plug and play. Got 40 channels and all the local ones needed to watch football!!!! Highly recommend.”
“I installed this unit in my basement with the antenna in a basement window,” wrote one shopper. “Without the amplifier I got 14 channels and with the amp I got 27. Considering where it’s at I consider it a positive purchase. It would probably work a lot better above ground, but it did the job I needed.”
If you’re looking for an antenna under $20, this HIDB antenna is Amazon’s No. 1 new release in TV antennas coming in ahead of the Gesobyte Amplified Digital TV Antenna ($29.90) and Staygold TV Antenna ($28.68).
