  • Reviews

A mini digital TV antenna with dual extendable rod designed for the August DTV350C, DA701C, DA900C, DTV100C, DA110BD and compatible with all portable AV devices with TV or DAB radio and a coaxial RF socket. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, not designed for analogue reception.

There may difficulty in receiving Freeview TV signal using a portable or indoor antenna in some areas that do not have a sufficiently strong signal. This is due to the Freeview service in the UK is not yet being fully operational. The reception will improve along with the progress of the Digital Switchover Program.  A signal amplifier or booster may improve reception capability in regions where the signal is marginally strong. (please note that transmission strength is also affected by various factors such as proximity to Freeview TV/digital radio transmitters, tall building structures, thick walls, ceilings and etc.). A rooftop TV aerial may be required to watch Freeview channels in regions where the signal is insufficient for a portable antenna.


  • Plug and play for receiving Freeview TV channels

  • Mini design for both indoor & outdoor use
  • Dual extendable rod to increase reception capability

Size Doesn't Matter Review by VA Patriot "VA Patriot"

I couldn't resist the price and since Amazon has such an amazing return policy, I couldn't go wrong. And I realize that digital reception will vary depending on where you live, the distance from broadcast stations and where you place the antenna. I purchase two of these, one for the 32" Sony in the upstairs activity room, the other for a 50" Sony in the main living room. These are very tiny antennas, smaller than a credit card so great to conceal by the window. And depending on how far you are from a window, you may need to purchase a connector and additional cable. This is a standard cable connector, not PAL as one reviewer wrote. And I'm located halfway between Richmond and Norfolk Virginia and after installation and programming, I was able to pull in 14 stations of which 11 are crystal clear. I have all the major players (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX) as well as ION, PBS a few shopping channels and others that probably won't interest me. But that's all I need since I'm not a huge television person.

Simple antenna Review by Amazon Customer

It is absolutely amazing. The antenna is small, but does all the job that a bigger and amplified antenna can do. I bought it as my back-up antenna. I figured that this antenna can function as primary antenna for OTA channels. (Posted on 31/12/2013)
The Best Antenna Review by Geospart "I Drank What? - The Last Words of Socrates"

I bought one of these a few months back for one of my USB TV adapters. For kicks I hooked it up on place of some an expensive rabbit ear antenna on my office TV. This antenna pulled in a lot more stations than a 25 dollar powered antenna. Since then I ordered 4 more of these. The antenna is pretty well built, the suction cup sticks to the windows pretty good, the wire is a pretty long and has a standard U.S. coaxial lead. I recommend this for all you cable cutters.

Doing a great job Review by Rogers Will "Matthew"

I bought this antenna, because I am getting rid of the local cable company. So in order to enhance the programming available on the ROKU I bought, I bought this antenna to pull in local channels. It pulls in all of the local channels that were available on cable, and some additional. If you're tired of being nickled and dimed by your cable company, try this for local programming. By the way, the manufacturer must have fixed the sizing on the connector, as the cable fit perfectly into my TV (Posted on 10/01/2013)
Amazed Review by Estella

This product works better than the one I paid $45 for. I paid $2.99 and got the Coax Socket Adapt for free. When it came I laugh because it look like a toy so I threw it in a draw and left it there. So this week I bought a Toshiba 50 inch tv then I remembered the antena, I hooked it up and it works very well I am so glad that I took the free offer for the Coax Socket Adapt because I needed it.

small antenna packs a large punch Review by Nathan Sharfi "cyansmiles"

when people say it small, it is small. they are not kidding. the box it came in was about the size of a pack of cards (sorta). It was tiny. But it works amazingly well. We paid about $4 for it, and I bought 2 more just to have them for when I need them. I have no problems with then. I am working on installing a large antenna on the top of the house, and I am still amazed how well these little ones work. They come in handy and I am glad I bought them. If they impress, is is not because they look cool... it is because they are so small and not only work, but work exceptionally well. (Posted on 15/07/2012)

Great Little Antenna! Review by Rainy Storm

***Please remember to add the free U.S. adapter to your cart*** As none of the reviews actually says anything about the performance itself, I thought I'd come and leave a few words. This antenna is VERY TINY! I was worried about the performance when I saw the size of it, but boy was I wrong! I live about 25 miles from the city where the broadcast towers are mostly located, and I receive about 8 digital channels (with the sub-channels, there are over 10!) more than enough for my need! this is actually a better antenna than the bigger one I found at a dollar store a couple years back! Why not 5 stars? I wish the "stand" was better. It's a suction cup, that really doesnt suck on to anything since the antenna cable is quite heavy compared to the actual antenna. a heavier stand or a clip/clamp will be better, for now it's just leaning on my tuner box, oh well, it works!

Not a U.S. connector Review by Amazon Customer

The antenna seems to work as well as any of the similar tiny digital TV ones. But - the connector on the antenna is a "PAL" type which seems to be standard in the UK. It will not fit the standard cable connector on US televisions. You will need a female "PAL" to male "F" adapter to make it work for those. (Posted on 13/07/2011)
