More Information

Just find a location with a strong signal to place it after connecting to your TV and you're ready to enjoy free local programming. The included amplifier can improve weak signals using extremely low noise circuitry, or it can be removed if not needed. Local over-air digital and HDTV broadcasts will be uncompressed, so you can receive a better quality signal than provided by satellite or cable companies. In some cases, you'll receive channels not available through those service providers as well.

All 7 HD channels!

it actually works!

I read the review here and then went to Best Buy and bought one for 66 with tax. I couldn't wait to finish work and asked the manager for early leave. The hook up was easy. I sat the thing on my sub woofer pointing to the NE as I live in the Rutherford area. I scanned a couple of times and got five channels. Then I tried to turn the antenna to face southeast direction and I scanned again and i got all 7 channels. All HD. Thanks for the positive reviews to help me make a good choice.

Pretty Good

I can get 4 - 5 channels where I am. I get Global, CBC, Omni and City TV. If I move it right I can also get CTV most times. This is outside Calgary so I was not expecting much but over all I am happy

Good antenna

I bought this antenna because I just disconnect my cable TV 2 days ago. The connection is simple. On my tv setting, auto program, it takes less than 10 minutes and I got 6 HD channals. CBC, OMNI, CITYTV, GLOBAL, CTV, CTS. The best thing I can watch news and world cup in HD1080 clear quality pictures.

Great buy!

I bought this yesterday and I am very happy. I live on the second floor of a condo building and this gives me 19 free channels! I only picked up 7 without the amplifier, so make sure you test with and without the amplifier in your home. Very happy to be receiving local and US channels.

Last night I purchased this product thinking that it might not work. I live in Highfield Park close to the Tim Horton's and I live on the east side of an apartment building on the top floor. I have the device facing south, high on the living room wall. I first tried the device without the amplifier and I was only able to pick up CBC. I put the amplifier and I was able to pick up all three HD stations. CTV, Global, and CBC. The pictures is crystal clear. From time to time it does pixelate when the signal isn't strong enough, but 90 percent of the time it's flawless. When I was doing research on OTA in Halifax I didn't find a lot of info on this. I hope this helps people researching this product.

Good antenna if you are in the right spot

I'm getting all 9 TV stations broadcasting from Mont Royal. A friend has it as well, but he only gets 6 stations. Like with any other antenna, your apartment/house location is everything.

While this is a great idea and was easy to install, but it didn't work for me. I couldn't get all the local channels. Maybe it works better if you're on the second floor or higher.

RCA digital antenna

From the 4th floor facing west I got only one station (omni) consistently. Not the antennas fault, but multidirectional not so helpful if a signal is not available.

reat antenna! bye bye express vu :)

bought this antenna at bestbuy and will say that it is one of the best decisions i have made, my satellite bill was [$$$] per month and noticed that basically just paying to watch commercials so go rid of the sat and now enjoying 24 channels in pure HD, this antenna is great pulls in lot's of local toronto and american channels in hd chrystal clear and the sound is amazing as well . i will say to those who say they can only get 2 or 3 channels, try putting it near a window, on the window sill and use the standup bracket so that it is upright and you might be happily surprised also you can use a longer cable if needed wih a joineer/coupling . it won't hurt he picture, i used a cable so i could put it by my window and getting great reception:) all in all a great buy at any price :)

not much help

I live on a west-facing 9th floor condo at Lake Shore and the Humber River. With this antenna I could pick up three signals but only one was good enough to watch. I made a loop out of a coat hanger and it picked up the same three channels; although the signals were even weaker.

Myth of a digital antenna

I bought this because I was tricked into thinking that a 'digital antenna' was a real thing. Turns out my old set of unpowered rabbit ears does exactly the same job. I'm bringing this back.

  • from Ottawa

Very Poor Product

With a plain set of rabbit ears I receive 12 channels and with the RCA Digital Amplified TV Antenna I was only able to receive 6 channels. I am returning it tomorrow.

Exceptional product

I can receive 6 digital channels - CBC E/F, Omni 1/2, CityTV, & Sun TV.

This is great if you live in an apartment building that's pretty high up. It gets the stations in clear and for free! You just have to make sure you find a good area to put it for reception.

Great antenna once you find the right location

I placed this antenna right beside the window in a condo vertically. I was able to receive 11 HD channels and all were perfectly clear. However, placing in flat next to the TV yielded no channels. Location is really important especially if you live in a building. This antenna will pay for itself in less than 2 months of cable fees.

So Glad I bought this Antenna!

I bought an old house without cable or an outside antennae, and do not subscribe to cable/satellite tv. (It is way too expensive & who needs 100 channels?) I was using an old pair of rabbit ears on a new Sony Bravia and could get CBC, CTV, Hamilton, Global & City TV in HD... but not consistently, and not without having to move the rabbit ears around in different positions depending on which channel I wanted to watch. Now I get all of these channels ALL THE TIME! Plus, I get the Buffalo stations! Channel 7 (I think that's ABC) is crystal clear in HDTV!!!!! Just wish I had bought this antenna sooner! I am using the optional Amplifier and I did find that you need to read the fine print on the instructions as you do need to lay it flat, up high, and away from metal objects to get the best pic. Finally, I do have one criticism... it is advertised as paintable... I can't see how painting this black antenna box would make it more attractive as you'd still see the black wires and little black amplifier box... and since you have to lay it flat, and keep put it someplace high, it'd be pretty hard to camoflage it.

RCA Digital Flat Amplified Antenna

I'm located about 40 kms south west of Ottawa. This antenna was only able to receive clearly the CBC HD English French digital channels on a Sharp HD TV.Analog channels scanned were fuzzy and distorted.I will be returning this unit.I will try this unit again once all Canadian channels go to digital signals.
