Best Indoor TV Antennas (Non-Amplified)

Here are our top 5 digital indoor HDTV antennas based on our internal testing and analysis.
#1. NoCable 30
Our Rating: (5/5)
Since coming onto the market in late 2016, the NoCable 30 has done nothing but impress anyone who has tried to use it. Frequently described as "should be the best seller", "better than expected" and "the best value for your money", this indoor antenna has gotten rave reviews on Amazon and elsewhere. It comes with a longer than normal 12-foot premium coaxial cable that can be disconnected if longer lengths are needed. It is also reversible and has an enormous support structure behind it at NoCable.org.
#2. Mohu Leaf 30
Our Rating: (4.5/5)
Mohu pioneered the "flat" indoor antenna design back in 2011. The Mohu Leaf 30 has a 10-foot detachable quality coaxial cable, which is slightly shorter than the NoCable 30. Mohu also manufactures all of their products in the USA, which unfortuantely for some makes their pricing a bit higher than others. GoMohu.com offers technical support via their extensive knowledge base as well for those that may end up needing help installing their antenna.
#3. Channel Master FLATenna 35
Our Rating: (4/5)
Channel Master has a long history in developing quality TV antennas since 1949 (the beginning of OTA TV). The Channel Master FLATenna 35 does not come with a coaxial cable, which makes it unique in this list. However, this indoor antenna is reversible and made of extremely quality materials. ChannelMaster's website also has a lot of support documents available and ways to contact their experts.
#4. Winegard FlatWave
Our Rating: (4/5)
The Winegard FlatWave is developed by a company that has a long history of over 50 years. The reason this antenna drops down to #4 is because the 15-foot coaxial cable is permanently attached to the antenna unit, making it a bit more difficult to adjust the length of the cable if needed. It is also reversible (like the others in this list), and has a good bit of support documentation available on their website.
#5. ClearStream Eclipse
Our Rating: (3.8/5)
The ClearStream Eclipse is easily recognized by its distinctive "circle" design. It is reversible like the others in this list, but is also one of the more expensive ones as well. It also has proprietary "Sure Grip" technology to help it attach easier to windows and walls without the need of Velcro or tape. AntennasDirect.com offers a wealth of tech support for this antenna via a wiki and a phone number that allows you to speak to an expert.
