Before purchasing this RCA 800F Antenna , I had previously used an RCA Indoor Antenna # 1450 upon moving into a new home purchase . Very similar to the #800F , but for use Indoors only . Now after 7 years of Cable and Satellite services , I decided to finally "CUT THE CABLE BILLS" . So I hooked up that old RCA indoor antenna to see how many broadcast channels were now available in the Charlotte , NC area .
Well , much to my surprise -- that RCA antenna pulled in 32 channels . So I then decided to replace my Time Warner Cable with the FREE Digital channels available . But before cancelling that service , I purchased this RCA #800F outdoor antenna from Walmart .
I previously had a 4"x4" wooden post placed on the side of my home which had held a satellite dish from years past . This is where I installed the new RCA 800F and connected it to all my TV outlets in the home . And even though this antenna is only 5 feet off the ground , the reception I am now receiving is quite incredible -- 51 HD DIGITAL BROADCAST CHANNELS !
I would highly recommend this product for anyone who is ready to " Cut The Cable ". Between all these channels , along with 1000's of free online Movies & TV shows available thru HULU , Crackle , Sling TV , etc. -- I won't be missing cable too much . If your laptop computer has a HDMI output , you can view everything on your big flat screen TV .
