Here's a list of the best selling TV Antennas from
The list is updated every hour.

The AuthorI first got excited about TV antennas when I stumbled across a guide that showed how to make an HDTV antenna out of old wire coat hangers. It sounded interesting and looked easy so I made one, and I was totally amazed at how well it worked. The picture was every bit as good as what I was getting with cable. So I made another one for my other TV, then I called the cable company and canceled. I don't miss it a bit.

When I decided to put up this website, I realized that there are lots of people who aren't into the "do it yourself" scene, so I found what I think are the best digital TV antenna deals available, and here we are.

  • So what's different about these new TV antennas ?
  • They're much smaller than TV antennas used to be.
  • They're inexpensive.
  • They're sturdy and well made.
  • Thousands of people already own these antennas.
  • Bottom line – they do exactly what they're supposed to do,
    and they do it well.

DB2e AntennaLet's look at the New DB2e, which is the smallest and least expensive of the new offerings from Antennas Direct. If you're anywhere near a large metropolitan area (up to 20 miles), this antenna should be all you'll need. Be sure to read the reviews.

Here are some pictures of an attic installation.

If you think that you are too far from the transmission towers, you can double the antenna size (with a DB4e) or even quadruple it (with a DB8) very easily.

TV antennas are for:

  • People who are tired of paying through the nose
    for cable or satellite TV.
  • People who want good HDTV reception for free.
  • People who like to be independent.

DB type antennas are fairly forgiving about direction, but you'll get the best results if your antenna is aimed toward the transmission towers. Go to and fill in the information they ask for. They only ask for your address so they can give you an exact compass direction to your house. The site will produce a report giving you the compass direction of each transmission tower in your area.

Note that these antennas don't come with masts or poles for mounting. You can purchase these separately or you can use an aluminum, wood, or PVC pole or an existing antenna mast.

So is there a downside to all this? Well, you won't get as many channels as with cable, but it's a whole lot cheaper. The choice is yours.

Now just sit back and enjoy endless FREE TV!

    Thanks. I need to cut back on my expenses so I can buy much needed food. I’m very tired of wieners and ramen noodles. I was trying to decide whether to get an antenna and reading your site has helped me decide. I might even make me one.
