Essential Info

With the mandatory ending of broadcast analog TV on June 12th, 2009, there will be an increasing demand for antennas for home use. The PowerHD-100 is a truly portable digital TV antenna that enables you to receive free off air digital broadcast stations in your area. It will receive both high definition (HDTV) and standard definition (SDTV) digital programming (channels 2-69) and send it to your existing digital TV, analog TV with converter box, or USB/PC TV tuner and laptop computer. The PowerHD -100 is an ideal antenna for your home, as it can also be used with any plasma or LCD flat panel TV with an internal ATSC tuner. It allows free viewing of HDTV 1080i broadcast signals even though you do not subscribe to HD programming via cable or satellite. Hook up the PowerHD-100 to additional TVs in your house to avoid added fees for multiple cable boxes. Everything you need to receive free TV immediately is in the box. With an ultra-compact size, it can be taken anywhere and can even be hooked up to your laptop making it the perfect solution for watching TV while traveling. The PowerHD 100 can run off the supplied AC adapter, a USB port via the included USB cable, or by the included AA batteries.


What's Included

  • PowerHD 100 Antenna
  • USB to mini USB power cable
  • AC adapter
  • RF Coax cable with F connector (3 foot)
  • Two (2) AA batteries
  • Owner's manual
  • More Info

    Other Features
    • Unique, sleek ergonomic pop-up element design
    • Internal low noise amplifier improves reception by boosting the weakest signals
    Low power design allows the PowerHD 100 to run for weeks on the same batteries under normal usage. It will also automatically determine whether an alternate power source is plugged into the mini USB connector, and will disconnect the batteries as the power source. Therefore, the batteries do not have to be removed when the unit is powered through the mini USB connector (and/or adapter). Note: Batteries are not required when using USB or AC adapter power. Battery power allows use in emergencies with portable TVs.

    Very Disapointed The PowerHD 100 TV antenna that I purchased does not perform any better then a $10.00 rabbit ear antenna. The unit is way over priced. Please Save your money. The company Smart home I will still deal with. Steve Baltimore MD.
    SANDY -- park ridge, IL   7/14/2012
    Ilove it! It took me a while to figure out exactly where to place it but I finally did & it works very well. I wasn't happy that I could not buy it when the price was so much lower! You guys go up & down so fast it is hard to keep up with you! I love the fact that it doesn't have rabbit ears for me to trip over & break! LOL!
    Luca -- leesburg, VA   6/16/2012
    Works good for the size. Portable is good product.
    Raymond -- denver, CO   5/12/2012
    Watching TV right now. Works great.
    JAMAL -- brooklyn, NY   3/1/2012
    Works like it says.
    JamesC -- dallas, TX   1/7/2012
    This compact antenna pulled in over 30 stations. Amazingly received all the local stations in my area. Also receives local stations that cable does not broadcast. Already canceled my $100/mo cable.
    DONALD R -- knoxville, TN   12/24/2011
    This item was completely unacceptable. When opened it fell apart. There was rattling inside. All of the plastic screw recepticles had disentegrated and there was no way for the two halves to be connected. Needless to say I will not pay the shipping to return the item. Ease of use - unable to use without devising some way to connect the two halves. Overall value - nil, does not rate one star, however the review will not accept zero.
    ROGER E. -- osgood, IN   12/3/2011
    Haven't had a chance to try it out ,yet. Sorry.
    RAY LEONARD -- newport news, VA   7/18/2010
    it just don't work, a piece of junk.
    BRIAN -- winter park, FL   6/24/2010
    Compact and outstanding reception. Bought for portable HD TV and picked up about 10 more channels than with stick antenna. Light weight and very portable design that works great!
    JIMMIE -- westfield, IN   4/10/2010
    We needed this to pull in digital channel in our area and it did not work.
    RobertS -- los angeles, CA   3/7/2010
    This compact antenna works phenomenally well with my HDTV. I am receiving over 40 channels crystal clear and FREE!...Even get lots of Spanish channels that my wife loves since she is from SA. The antenna sits on my fireplace mantel and doesn't even look like an antenna. My friends can't believe that it works as well as it does. This product is highly recommended.
    LISA -- orlando, FL   2/16/2010
    This antenna works great! Recieving many digital channels on my small portable TV. Thanks!
    DONALD -- riverside, CA   1/29/2010
    Its a good antenna doesnt get all the channels some digital channels too far
    ROBERT -- englewood, FL   1/4/2010
    Barely works, Definitely NOT worth the money.
    RobertS -- orange, CA   12/3/2009
    This was the ideal solution for my laptop. It allows me to receive over 30 channels with my USB tuner. The digital picture quality is amazing.
