I have the non-amplified version of this flat panel antenna... CityTV keeps dropping out intermittently no matter how I position it. I'm in West Toronto. I would pay $10 if I knew this would make a difference.

It got most Canadian channels, but i switched it out for a winegaurd which gets better single and was able to get those far away channels as well.

At this price this is a good deal.

@JonSnow does it work indoor?
I have the prime cables similar to this one but not amplified and have to put it on the window in a specific position to get most signals

I visited a friend in a condo at Yonge/Sheppard in Toronto. I stuck a paper clip in their tv and did a scan; we got a couple channels

Thanks OP, ordered, for $10 why not. No tax too.

It’s actual 1080i or 720p I believe.

We’re mostly smart online but have had OTA maybe 10y, nice to have a mix, watch local news, SuperBowl US commercials etc. All received channels are HD, 2 antennas in the attic, pre-amped and power splitter.

Use TVfool to see what you can get. Can’t really recommend antennas on RFD, OTA is location reception specific.

TVFool has been hit and miss in that it will go down sometimes and I've read isn't necessarily updated. I've moved on to using rabbitears.info and it works quite well, and more reliably.

I had bought this one. Poor reception, so I returned it.

Mine is on a wall, in a bedroom. Would have liked it on a window but I think my window has special coating on it which blocks all signals. I started off with the primecables one, but it broke. It kept falling since i used it to find the sweet spot plus was looking for a while one so it doesn't look super ugly.

I have found out that if you have crappy reception an amp won't help that much.
