The Sky HDTV Outdoor Antenna
- Product Review (submitted on October 24, 2013):
I cut the cord on satellite in March, 2013, just before this antenna became available. From March until now, I've been using the Mohu Leaf Ultimate. It was the best of several indoor antennas I tested. However, the local ABC affiliate (and sub-channels) and the local ION affiliate (and sub-channels) were simply too far away and too many topographical barriers to be consistently available via an indoor antenna (or in the case of the ION channels, at all). After installing the Mohu Sky in my attic, I picked up both of the local ABC affiliate and sub-channel signals and the ION and sub-channel signals easily, adding 11 more signals which we can consistently receive. In addition, I have on occasion picked up a couple of low power signals in our area and, when atmospheric conditions are right, signals from cities well beyond the normal 70 miles range.
In all, we now consistently receive 35 channels, representing 23 unique channels of video content and 2 unique channels of audio content (we live in a mountainous region with affiliates broadcasting on multiple channels from different tower locations). We now can consistently get over-the-air reception from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, the CW, PBS, World, Create, Bounce, MeTV, This TV, My Network TV, ION, ION Life, Untamed Sports, Qubo, Smile of a Child, ZUUS Country, TNN, TBN, the Church Channel, JCTV, Enlace, QVC, Shop, two local weather channels and two local radio channels. Occasionally we also receive the local low power signals from the Daystar and HSN affiliates.
When combined with a Roku, an Apple TV, a PC running PlayOn (which streams to the Rokus) and Windows Media Center (through which we record over-the-air broadcasts for later viewing via PlayOn and the Rokus and our i-devices), we have a robust replacement for cable, including access to a ton of sports via over-the-air broadcasts, MLB.TV and ESPN3.
We are saving tons of money. Thanks Mohu!
