Installed in my attic today and hooked up to existing old cable tv lines. Pictures on our 2 televisions are crystal clear and we now pick up 54 channels. Before we only received about a dozen channels and had to constantly reposition our inside antennas several times a day. This is way, way, better. Long live free TV!

Disappointed
After spending an hour assembling this flimsy toy....I had to hunt up some cable...it should have been furnished with unit. Repeated attempts to aim unit all met with poor results. This antenna should have been sold as an amplified set only. My radio shack amplified rabit ears antenna works better than this one. I will be returning it for refund. Big waste of time.v

Much Better Than I Expected

Tired of our outrageous cable bill and sad selection of shows, we decided to cut the cable. We have Netflix, Hulu, and other options that are much cheaper, but we were missing the local channels. I bought this antenna, not expecting too much due to the low price, our aluminum sided house, our hilly terrain, and the distance from the transmitters (apx 30 miles). But I did get it as there were some encouraging reviews. I'm not disappointed! Sure... it had to be assembled, but it wasn't difficult. Most of the pieces snap together, and yes, it appears flimsy. But that's how a lot of antennas are! They're not a single piece carved out of a solid chunk of aluminum! Don't be discouraged by those who said it is difficult to put together. Take your time, and it isn't. As I didn't know if it would work or not, I carried a TV (of course, not a big one!) up into the attic and hooked it up there for testing. I didn't want to run coax only to find it didn't work! I used the compass to find the general direction of the transmitters I wanted (see TV Fool for how to do this). I hung it from the center of the roof in a position where it would point out the side of the roof, and not through the aluminum siding in the front of the house. Turned on the TV... ran the auto scan for channels, and immediately received 22 digital channels!! Sure, there are some we will not watch, but we received all the ones we were missing. Again... this is attic mounted, and 30 miles from the transmitters through some hilly terrain. Also, no rotation necessary for my stations. I would highly recommend this product! BTW... before doing this, I called a company that installs antennas, and they said it would cost between $300 and $400 to install an antenna and get it working, and they weren't sure if I would have any reception due to our location.

Easy to assemble and goes the distance in miles.

Tested Mohu Leaf, Antenna Direct and GE antennas. The GE antenna did the best job for the price. Very happy with the results and able to pull in over 70 channels that are a little less than 40 miles away. Added an amplifier due to placement in the attic and running cable to multiple TVs off this little gem. Would highly recommend over the other two antennas tested.

Exceeds Expectations

I had done quite a bit of searching before deciding on the GE Attic Mount Antenna. I live 30 miles from the closest antenna farm. I wanted an antenna that would physically fit in my attic (there's no way I wanted to put anything on my roof) but still perform well even though its attic placement would restrict its ability to pick up signal. Ultimately, I decided on this antenna because of the price and previous good reviews. According to the FCC I should be able to pick up 38 channels in my location… I was able to pick up 48 crystal clear digital channels and 1 analog channel (which is also very clear). Even though the GE Attic Mount Antenna is an omni-directional antenna (it only picks up signals from the direction it is pointed in) I was still able to pick up three addititional channels that are pretty much in the opposite direction (pointed 117 degrees ESE, still able to pick up channels from 349 degrees NNW). Definitely recommending this product. I'm a fan.

Super antenna

My cable TV bills kept increasing over time to the point I got fed up and looked into getting a digital antenna. Our local codes do not allow a visible antenna on the roof so I looked into an attic mounted one. I found this online at Walmart and decided to order it and try it - great price. A week later it arrived at my local Walmart, I picked it up and assembled it, and set it on a serving table just to try it out. To my surprise, I got 66 channels, crystal clear, including all the major networks. I did not spend any time trying to aim it towards the towers. I just set it on the table just to try it. Since then, I have just set it behind the TV and it continues to work perfectly. I have not had time to climb up into the attic and permanently mount it. I am very happy with this purchase, and I really enjoyed going to the cable company office and returning my converter and telling them I no longer needed their service.

Easy installation and Works Perfectly

I bought this antenna in October 2016. Easy assembly and installation. It is rather flimsy (the black parts are plastic and the silver is thin aluminum tubes), but once it is put together it is ok. Plus, it is meant to be installed in your attic so it will never see wind or weather or any other burden. It is about 2 and a half feet square when assembled and the center post sticks out about 1 foot. The hardware is included to bolt it to your roof rafter or post. I was very impressed: when I ran the channel scan on the TV after attaching the cable from the antenna this little sucker picked up 52 CHANNELS!!!! WOW!!!! And these included Networks in High Definition!!! AWESOME!!!! Take that CHARTER CABLE with your $200 per month bill!!!!!! Definitely Recommend this investment.

Did the job well and cheaply

Couldn't believe it. Got both "local" stations (about 35 miles) and 3 others about 40- 50 miles away which were about 90 degrees from the direction it was finally set at. All stations except one are in the green (good) on my signal monitor and the one exception is very close to green. Much better than the other rectangular-shaped one I was previously using. It has a very versatile mounting bracket. GE seems to have really done their homework on this one. My wife is now a happy camper. It doesn't appear to be real sturdy, but who cares when it is up in the attic? I ended up hanging it upside down from the rafters so I put a pipe clamp on the mast to be sure that, if the clamp provided for the mast came loose, it wouldn't slide off the mast and fall to the floor. However, the first location I tried where the line of sight to the 2 local stations was blocked by my chimney passing thru the attic, didn't work well.

Exceeded my expectations

I have a house about 62 to 65 mile away from transmitters in Memphis, Tennessee. As I have grown older I still like toys, but now electronic ones and this one beats them all. I bought this antenna and went to a web site www.antennaweb.org and used a smart phone with a compass to aim this antenna toward the Memphis Stations as it is directional. My computer has a digital over the air HDTV tuner with windows media center that includes a TV guide, just like a cable box (except for the monthly fee) and an XBOX 360 can be used as a media center extender. A media center remote for your XBOX 360 is available from Walmart.com. This antenna has everything you need including the mast in the box. I would recommend an inexpensive signal booster available at Walmart. Your electronics associates can assist you in purchasing one. I now enjoy some great television stations not available on cable and free of charge. When using my XBOX 360 as a media center extender I can pause live tv, record, and play back content from my media center computer. If you are unable to afford cable television, this is a great choice. I will be back at Walmart to purchase a second XBOX 360 that will serve as a media center extender for a second television. One thing I was not aware of is the fact that over the air picture quality is the best available. The signal is not compressed. You will not get every channel available on Cable television, but the channels you do receive will be as good if not better than the quality of either a dish or cable service.

Works for me near Cypress, Texas.

Works for me in zip code 77095 near Cypress, Texas. Installed it in the attic of a two story house located approximately 25-26 miles from the Missouri City, Texas antenna farm (where most Houston, Texas tv signals originate). Used TVFool website to determine the correct angle and a smart phone compass app to point it in the right direction. No amplifier needed to get good picture for all possible Houston, Texas Over the Air channels even when going through splitters.

Excellent for the price

Found this online at Walmart and thought I might as well go and pick it up in the store. Well in the store it was $40. So stood right in front of them and ordered on my phone to be shipped to store for $19. An hour later picked it up. It gets excellent HD channels and quite a few of them I might add! Feels cheap (and I had to use my own screws since the ones that came with it were too few and I couldn't figure which went where)but I like the lightweight and besides, once hooked up, there's no reason to mess with it anymore. A friend had told me before I bought this, she got some antennae at best buy for $130 and she gets like 25 channels. I paid $19 and am getting 34!

1. Not designed for outside mount and normally I would not recommend it. I have some experience and like to dabble with ideas so with some slight modifications made it work well.
by SANDSPIKE
2. Not recommended. There's no provision for a ground. Also, the materials are not that sturdy. It was designed for inside.
by factor60
3. not a good idea it's doesn't seem to be made for that , I think it would break if a bird perched on it.
by Thomasssssss
4. No, it is not recommended for outside use, it is very light aluminum and any little wind will blow it away.
by iterrones
5. No. This antenna is only made for indoor (in attic) use.
by 12GaryJ
6. not recommended but you can waterproof it with a good enamel paint and it will work fine seal cable connection with silicone rtv.
by electromagneticalunatic
7. No, it is attic mount only.
by yooperintx
8. I know it is a attic antenna but I mounted it on a 5 foot pole from my old DIRECTV chimney mount and it has been up there for 3 years and works as good as the day I bought it. (Virginia Beach, Va. area)
by submarinetm
9. I mounted this on a 6" steel pole mount on the roof. It works fine for me. I live between Knoxville and Chattanooga TN in Sweetwater. I have it aimed at Knoxville, which the stations are 40 mi away. It picks up all the stations, and it even picks up some stations from Chattanooga in the opposite direction. I know it says it's an indoor antenna, but for the price, if I get much better reception outside up higher, then if it lasts 2 or 3 years it paid for itself over my cable bill 500 times over! I also purchased a Winegard amplifier to try and get more channels from Chattanooga. I'm hoping it helps to do that. Will arrive for free pickup Dec 2nd. Can't wait! http://tinyurl.com/p2o8k55

1. NO this is strictly an attic antenna. It will not with stand high winds
by redder2
2. According to instructions, no
by ZsaZsa42
3. I would not recommend uaing this antenna outdoors - it is advertised as an antenna for the attic and the construction would not hold up to outside elements.
by StLouisMOWlMrtShopper
4. This antenna is designed for inside the attic only. Jasco Products Tech Suport(Manufacturer)
by Tech Support
5. It's rated for indoor use only, probably because it's not very durable.
by Luap46
6. Hi Squirrel, Based on what the box says, and the antenna quality I would say no. The box does specifically say for attic or indoor use only.

1. Yes and in the Dallas metroplex does an excellent job.
by redder2
2. Yes I do. If you don't, maybe its your location and you need a pre-amp.
by Deisel99
3. All the stations picked up in my area have converted to digital so have to assumed it is mostly limited to the UHF band (14-69). If there are still stations that broadcast in analog within 20mi away in the VHF band you may be able to pick it up.
by shk00design
4. KevinEE-- Yes, you'll get whatever UHF and VHF digital channels are in your area.
by 12GaryJ
5. found a manual for this one online, it said: Frequency Range: VHF 170 – 220 MHz UHF 470 – 700 MHz
by steveOtx
6. This antenna will receive both VHF 170-220MHz and UHF 470-700MHz frequencies. Jasco Products Tech Suport(Manufacturer)
