We're testing Clear TV for this Does it Really Work. The maker claims this new technology lets you bypass cable and satellite companies and receive hundreds of crystal clear digital and HD shows for free. Clear TV supposedly lets folks get top rated network shows, sporting events, sitcoms, local news, kids programming and more!

But does it really work?

    All antennas work the same. All antennas pick up UHF signals. Many pick up VHF signals. My pair of rabbit ears pick up the same darn 3 stations from Allentown. I took an 8-bay outdoor antenna from solid signal, mounted it and picked up WNEP, WVIA, WOLF, and several Philadelphia stations on top of the 3 Allentown stations. It all depends on where you live. If you live in Wilkes-Barre near Mountain Top, then picking up 16, 22, 28, 44, 56, and the rest of them are easy.

    Before you buy it, follow instructions and go to to see what channels you will get. And then remember that how far you are away form the broadcasting towers makes a difference as does the weather and the elevation of your home. Live in a valley surrounded by hills? Less reception. Also … this is not cable. Research before you buy. The coax sdder joint sometimes needs to be re soldered … no big deal; do not sent it back. Also they offer an amplifier which works great! This product works as well or better than most. (Nothing you buy anymore form anyone works perfect.) This is a good product regardless of the SLIGHT possibility of having to re solder the one joint. I recommend it.

      You know, a report will give all sorts of stations. Even the ones you won’t be (likely) able to receive. It shows coverage maps, and all sorts of data including signal power, distance, direction, and whether a station is on the UHF or VHF band. It also tells you what type of antenna is recommended to receive each individual station. Really nifty!

    It’s a joke! I get 21 channels with a $15 rabbit ears antenna; I get 7 with this piece of junk. My house sits on a hill and should pull all kinds of local channels. NOpe. What a rip off!. I smell a class action suit!
