Cutting the Cord – One for All Antenna 14542

IMG_E0758

This is the One for All Suburbs Line Pro with a 50 mile range, style #14542 which was around $32. I picked this up for my home this month after I decided it’s time to cut the cord on cable television. What you’ll want to do is go to http://www.channelchecker.com and put in your zip code. This will tell you which channels you can get, the direction for your signal and what antenna is best for your location.

First, I plugged in the micro USB power adapter to the amplifier. Then I connected the power to the outlet and checked that the red light was illuminated. Next, I connect the antenna to the amplifier. Next, I connect the short cable on the amplifier box to the antenna connector on the back of my TV.

Now you can decide where you would like to mount your antenna. These are reversible with the option of black or white. You can mount it on the TV, the wall, in a window, on the entertainment center, etc. Since my signals come from behind where the TV was located, I opted to place the antenna on the back. Using alcohol and a cotton ball, I cleaned off the areas and then I used the provided 3M adhesives for placement.

Now, to find my channels. I have an Insignia and was able to do a channel search by going to the menu, channels and then choosing an automatic channel search. You’ll need to check your specific brand to determine how to do this on yours.

In total, I can pick up 5 channels in my small town. My parents live out in the country and they can pick up 3 times as many channels as I can, so your results will probably be much better than mine. These are digital channels so they are every bit as crisp and clear as the digital cable I just dropped.

I have the video of the setup here if you’d like to watch. These are available at Walmart here (affiliate link). Happy Money Saving!
