A powerful indoor antenna for bringing in digital TV broadcasts up to 70 miles away.

30 second review

Antop’s AT-500SBS’s 30-inch width pays off in strong signal pulls, while the free iOS/Android app helps find the best installation location in real time. Mounted horizontally in a window (vertical mounting didn’t prove as effective in our test location) it pulled almost as many stations as the old-fashioned VHF/UHF antenna in the attic above.

The Antop’s included signal booster has two outputs, so you can power a TV and an FM radio (or two TVs) – a nice plus. The antenna’s size makes it hard to hide (unless you have curtains or valences that are conveniently placed), but its attractive shape and availability in white, black or titanium finishes are pluses. If you need maximum pulling power from an indoor antenna, the 500SBS is about as good as it gets.
