I bought this antenna a year ago from Walmart. I had basic cable and the company just raised its price, so I figured I'd try an hd antenna. I live 25 miles out of Boston, I get 21 channels, ION network, MeTV, Cozi, RetroTV, 5 different PBS stations, more, and all my local channels. I've never had a problem with reception. I save Money every month on cable cost. I highly recommend this antenna.
