quality reception at a good price

This is a great item. I ordered this expecting, due to the price, for it to be a cheap product which would hopefully do the job where everything else, apart from an external Arial, had failed. I was wrong... this item is very well packaged, is good looking (in case you want it on a pole outside) and was delivered exceptionally quickly, and to boot, it gives a really good reception. I live in a very old building which has thick walls and so reception from other items was very poor. This unit knocks spots off of others, some of which had been dearer. The only reason it did not get 5 stars is because it came with a cable in the box (the product description states no lead) and through the Amazon recommendations with this product i brought another lead for £10 (including postage) which is now of no use to me.

Must have digital aerial for poor reception area's

I have tried so many digital tv aerials for my daughters bedroom I had lost hope and just used her TV to play DVD's and USB pen drives but I wanted her to have a fully working tv so on seeing the reviews for this 1byone rectangle digital outdoor TV aerial i thought i'd give it one last go...

This arrived and is a little bigger and heavier than I expected but it's simple to use and install. I gave it a go inside and got 70% of the channels! amazing but then though what if it was outside... so then mounted it to the outside window and received 90% of the channels with no blocking or juddering!

Now we have a fully working HD tv for a £15 aerial! brilliant!

I was offered these at a discount in order to test and carry out a a fair and honest review. However this does not by any means influence my review in either positive or negative ways, my reviews are unbiased and all the opinions expressed are solely based on my own personal experience receiving and using said product. I could leave any feedback I choose as I have received the item before my review at the free or discounted rate.

I hope you found my review helpful in deciding whether or not to buy this product.

Not that good

This aerial is supposed to be for low signal area's, however it made no difference in our case, we have an aerial in the attic and so wanted to put one outside as we couldn't get all the channels from freeview. Fitted this outside quite high up on the house and despite the write up and reviews it made no difference and infact lowered the TV signal so we got even less channels and the channels we did get kept freezing and or breaking up!

The picture was pretty good too but unfortunately we don't speak french and ...

I got this for my mum who lives out in the sticks of the countryside and has a lot of trouble getting a signal and the arial in her bedroom is currently too short to reach her tv so we had to find this type instead. We have tried the smaller 1byone aerials but could not get much from them at all so thought we would try this as it's supposed to be one of their stronger models.
I followed the instructions and had to tune it on terrestrial to find any channels. The first tune in was sucessful in a sense that we picked up french tv channels! It was showing tintin in french and french news etc. The picture was pretty good too but unfortunately we don't speak french and really were looking for english channels.
We kept moving the device slightly and re-turning each attempt took a good 10-15 mins and after about 6 tune-ins we finally got a good amount of channels with a good picture and sound. A couple of channels were a bit iffy and pixelated but we were just happy to be able to get the majority with them. Picked up all the usual channels plus some freeview type ones too.
Overall very happy with the product and it worked well for us, I've knocked a star off because it seems tempremental and we had to tune about 6 times, and on some attempts it picked up pretty much nothing. You just have to persevere and hopefully you will not need to do it again!
I got this at a discounted price for my review.

Works for Me

I was offered this at a reduced price in return for an honest and unbiased review but to tell you the truth I did wasn't expecting much as I live in a poor reception area however, this is an excellent solution if you don't have an external antenna and want to get Freeview.

I started off with a simple indoor antenna and freeview box but I got very few channels. Whenever the antenna moved a bit or got knocked the picture would either freeze, disappear or pixilate. I was fed up having to mess about with the aerial all the time.

This looks much neater and it actually looks like something that will work. There used to be an outdoor aerialon the house and there was already a hole in the wall by the TV where the wire came into the house so, all we did was run the wire from this aerial through the wall and plugged it into the TV. The actual aerial itself stands outside just behind the wall where the TV is.

We tuned the TV and loads of new channels appeared, reception was great, WAY better than the normal amplified indoor antenna. we have our aerial outside but, I'm sure this would work inside as well if you didn't want to make a hole in the wall.

I'm absolutely grilled with the performance of this aerial and I would not hesitate to recommend it. It's not overly big so it doesn't look out of place and it certainly does a good job.

May solve your aerial needs..

Stupidly in the past, my aerial was cut when we had a loft extension and we've never really needed it until recently so I looked at getting one fitted and it was upwards of £150, so before forking out I wanted to see if there was another way.

Thankfully I found this aerial and gave it a shot, as it's relatively cheap and if it didn't work for me I could just bite the bullet and get a proper aerial installed again as a one-off. Luckily, this solved my problems so there's no need to do so.

I have a TV with built in free-view as most these days probably have, but without an aerial I couldn't access them. It was a very simple process, just plugging this into the back of my TV and setting up the digital channels automatically using the TV's search function and hey presto, it worked a treat. The aerial itself is a little on the bulky side, but it's no bigger than an aerial you'd put on your roof and even comes with brackets to install on a roof or balcony. Personally mine is near a window in my house by my TV, and I get just fine signal but if this changes I'll move it somewhere else. The cable is fairly long so you are fairly free to put it where you like within reason.

The signal strength I get is pretty good, clear picture but I haven't tried the HD channels yet. I'm sure they'll be fine.

I would recommend giving this a shot before you pay to install a proper aerial as this does the same job at a fraction of the price! Very happy.

This review is my own honest opinion of the product after using it myself and is what I really think of it. Despite some people's opinions, receiving the item at a reduced cost or for free has not influenced my rating or review in any way and I always do my best to inform others about the good and bad about any products I've purchased.

If this review was helpful to you, please hit the 'helpful' button so that I know the time taken to write this honest review is appreciated! Equally if it wasn't then please ask away and I can try my best to explain more about the product or answer your questions :)

Excellent definately a great buy

I received this item in the morning post with the regular mail was well packaged and comes in its own brande box. when I received this I didn't know what it could be until I openened the outer box as in the picture its deceiving to see the size and was much bigger than I thought it would be. I can be fitted in lofts, outside, caravans, etc I tested the quality on my bt vision box and is giving a stronger strength than the ariel I am using at the moment.

I received a discount as to give my free unbiased review many thanks this is a great and probably the best ariel I have ever used many thanks

What a great surprise -- an indoor-outdoor HD antenna that lives up ...

What a great surprise -- an indoor-outdoor HD antenna that lives up to its potential.

Did a ton of research a couple years ago, and purchased an AntennaCraft antenna since it seemed to be one of the lower cost indoor units that regularly received strong reviews. At that time we paid about £45 for it, and I would do it again in a heart beat... but it eventually died (got dropped) and we have been looking for a similar unit since they no longer make that one.

This antenna from 1byone is as close as they come -- maybe even better! We receive about 100 channels on our flat panel HDTV using just this antenna, and 16 or 17 of those are in awesome HD picture and sound.

As some reviews note, we can confirm that the best reception comes when the unit is near a window, and that we sometimes need to adjust how the antenna sits (rotate it, move it a few inches, etc...) in order to get the best quality reception for different channels. However, that is not a pain at all considering the saving of about £1000 if we had kept SKY instead!

It was not until doing this research that we realized that so many stations transmit digital HD airwave signals for anyone to receive, just like in the old analog rabbit-ears days.
Very interesting really. We live in a hilly area and our reception is still good.
Definitely recommend this unit... seriously, what's the worst that can happen? Right, it does not work for you and you return it to try another. Only thing to really think about is making sure that you wait to cancel your SKY subscription until after you find the right antenna for your location!
Very recommended.
Note: We received this item at a discount from the manufacturer or a seller, without obligation, and decided to objectively test and review it. My statements in this Amazon listing review reflect that testing experience.

all others are fine. That is the only reason I've dropped it ...

I bought this,as my external roof tv aerial had snapped, and couldn't get a quote less than £300. I thought I would give this a whirl, and send it back if it didn't work. I have a talktalk box that my tv aerial ran to, so I unplugged it and plugged this in. I had it sat right next to the TV for its first auto tune. ..It found 34 channels...so I moved the box to just inside an outside winfo, on the window ledge, facing out. Ran the auto tune again, and got 104 channels. The only ones it has problems with, and that could be my location, is the HD BBC channels...all others are fine. That is the only reason I've dropped it one star. I will get around to mounting it outside (if I can be bothered) and if it picks up the HD ones, then I will give it 5 stats. Well worth the money.
