Great Alternative to HD Cable

purchased this product with the intention of "cutting the cord", obviously you need to try the antenna in different locations and positions to maximize the amount of channels recieved (if signal is not 100%, channel will not register) which provides incredible quality HDTV! on 2 tv's I get the following channels to give you an idea: SRC(French CBC), CBS, WCAX, CBC, TVA, CTV, GLOBAL HD, GLOBAL SD, Tele-Quebec, PBS, PBS+, Create (Vermont), World (Vermont), V, ICI, CITYtv. obviously, some channels, such as vermont stations will not pickup very well on a clear sky day, but i don't watch those anyway.

In Mississauga, access to 15 channels

I was so impressed by the quality of the HD picture I get from this antenna. I noticed right away that it was more clear than with my satellite I had previously. I am in Mississauga on a second floor and I get some US channels also. This is a good alternative to paying for satellite or cable. I get the news and few tv shows I like. It is nice to be able to have an indoor antenna.

Very Disappointed - A poor investment

I live in Ottawa and I thought the reception would be much better, but it wasn't. I have difficulty with local channels, very fuzzy and inconsistent. My plan is to eliminate expensive cable and stream video off the internet and watch local stations OTA but I can not do it with this antenna, I will try a Channel Master. I plan to return it.
