If you’re still relying on antennas for your TV viewing as the digital transition approaches—even high-def TV—you’re probably looking for an alternative to a big, unwieldy outdoor antenna.
Antennas Direct wants you to hop into its slick ClearStream Convertible. It’s the company’s first indoor antenna model tuned specifically for DTV frequencies, it says.
The ClearStream Convertible features a range of up to 30 miles, with the same beamwidth as Antennas Direct’s ClearStream 1 outdoor model—only you can take the top down, so to speak, on the Convertible. Its 12 x 12-inch reflector can be removed, and its neck articulated 90 degrees, so you can conveniently put the loop on a TV, table, wall, or bring it outside for even greater signal.
The FCC analog switch off is coming up next month (June 12), so make sure you’re covered. The ClearStream Convertible has an MSRP of $79.99.
The tapered loop and compact, efficient design won’t be an eyesore for your TV setup, and the low impedance mismatch means you get optimum signal transmission, so you’ll be able to enjoy all of those shiny DTV channels when the switch takes place.
