    I purchased this 1byOne 50 mile amplified indoor OTA antenna, it's only $23.99 and it solved all my previous reception issues. I had a problem getting NBC with the cheapy OTA antenna I had, borrowed a Mohu antenna which was twice the cost of the 1byOne antenna, and it too failed to get NBC. The 1byOne antenna gets it perfectly, and also pics up ION channel, which neither of the others did in the location I have the antenna in.
    I'd say this is one of the better ones on the market, especially at a low price, as far as indoor OTA antennas go.

        Firestick + Kodi = Every channel, movie, etc you need and more that you don't.

        Only pay the cost of internet.

          Getting interesting with the cable companies again.

          Cord cutters are forcing them to react. This one is a move in the right direction, but it isn't right yet.

          IDK. I have Spectrum (formerly know as Chater Cable) and their cable speed sucks. I'm paying $64.99 for this schit.

            get your connection checked, how many devices are you currently running, and is this over wifi? I check my regularly, I usually get between 75-120 Download, and 9-15 Upload
