Mohu Curve 30 Indoor HDTV Antenna

Mohu Spotlight: Curve 30 Indoor HDTV Antenna Blends Form, Function



Gone are the days of ugly rabbit ear antennas and spotty over-the-air TV reception. Today it’s all about enjoying free over air TV in HD while also finding a happy balance between high performance and contemporary style. The Mohu Curve 30 fits the bill perfectly for many cord cutters.

 

The Made in USA Curve 30 Indoor HDTV antenna combines military-grade technology with a small, attractive footprint to effortlessly draw in both UHF and VHF over air signals. Its eye-catching design is unique in the OTA antenna marketplace. Its an HDTV antenna that can double as a contemporary piece of artwork. You can easily hide the Curve 30 behind your TV without a negative effect on your over air TV reception or put it on display for all to enjoy.

 

Curve Skewed

 

 

 

Product Overview

 

The Curve 30 is ideal for urban and suburban users who live within a 30 mile radius of broadcast towers. The antenna will pick up UHF signals up to 30 miles away, and VHF signals up to 10 miles. Because it’s multidirectional; able to receive television signals from multiple directions, it doesn’t need to be moved around once the optimum placement at your location has been achieved.

 

The Mohu Curve 30 and Curve 50 antennas can lie flat on a horizontal or vertical surface, or curved as shown by using the included stand.  A 10′ detachable coaxial cable is included with this non-amplified antenna.

 

If you find you are receiving RF interference at your location (from wireless telephones for instance), you can add a Jolt TV amplifier to any non-amplified Mohu antenna (Leaf Metro, Leaf 30, Curve 30) setup.

 

Curve 30 front back

 

At $49.99 the Curve 30 is a great HDTV indoor antenna option for any cord cutter looking for a ‘set it and forget it’ option. (If you don’t mind a refurbished open box product, you can save a bit more.)  Once you hook up the Curve 30 and do a channel scan, you’re set to enjoy free TV from the major networks including ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS and others in full 1080 HD!

 

Remember that all of the Mohu antennas combine beautifully with streaming media devices and services to provide consumers with a plethora of entertainment options as compared to traditional TV service, in addition to unparalleled savings.

 

 

User Considerations

 

Weather

All over air antennas are subject to fluctuations in weather.  Rain, wind, and snow can affect your reception no matter what antenna you choose.

 

While this can be a frustrating thing to deal with, especially in severe weather, it’s a rare occurrence and something that can often be overcome by simply moving the antenna and re-scanning for channels.

 

Terrain

In an ideal over air antenna scenario, you would live in a flat area with broadcast towers in sight of your location. Since most of us don’t live in that ideal situation, terrain can be a factor with respect to channel reception.

 

It’s possible to overcome some issues with terrain by using a Mohu Jolt Digital Antenna Amplifier in conjunction with a non-amplified Mohu antenna. Adding the Jolt amplifier to your coaxial cable can fine tune the Curve 30′s signal reception and clear up reception issues.

 

Placement

A key factor in over air channel reception is antenna placement at your location.

 

Placing your Curve 30 as high as possible is best. In a window, on a shelf, or behind the TV will all work, but you may have to try multiple placements with subsequent channel scans to find just the right placement to obtain all the broadcast channels in your area.

 

Elegant.

 

Entertaining.

 

Effortless.

 

These words describe the Mohu Curve 30 perfectly, and simply explain why I think this indoor HDTV antenna might be the right one for you.

2015 March Madness Schedule: The Sweet 16



This past Sunday, 32 teams stepped into brightly lit arenas across the country and 16 left with their dreams of total victory intact. Top-seeded and undefeated Kentucky continues to slaughter all who oppose them and now West Virginia is staring down the barrel as they try to gun their way to a spot in the coveted Elite 8.

 

If you’ve just cut the cord and you don’t know where to watch March Madness, then you’re in luck because I’m going to tell you when, where, and how you can watch the Sweet 16 without having to shell out hundreds of dollars to the cable company.

 

 

Sweet 16 Schedule of Games

 

First, let’s tackle the when of this cord cutting dilemma. Here is the upcoming schedule for the Sweet 16:

 

Thursday, 3/26

  • Notre Dame vs. Wichita State at 7:15 p.m. ET on CBS
  • Wisconsin vs. North Carolina at 7:47 p.m. ET on TNT
  • Kentucky vs. West Virginia at 9:45 p.m. ET on CBS
  • Arizona vs. Xavier at 10:07 p.m. ET on TBS

 

Friday, 3/27

  • Gonzaga vs. UCLA at 7:15 p.m. ET on CBS
  • Louisville vs. NC State at 7:37 p.m. ET on TBS
  • Duke vs. Utah at 9:45 p.m. ET on CBS
  • Oklahoma vs. Michigan State at 10:07 p.m. ET on TBS

 

 

How to Watch the Sweet 16

Streaming

As you may have noticed, only three stations will be airing the Sweet 16: CBS, TBS, and TNT.

 

There are two ways to watch CBS, one that’s free but potentially spotty and one that costs money (one-time purchase) but displays in 1080 HD quality that even cable and satellite can’t deliver. Everyone likes free stuff, which is why going to CBSSports.com is such a tantalizing option. At CBSSports.com you can stream any CBS-broadcast March Madness game, get updates on scores, etc… It’s great for the serial streamer.

 

Getting TBS and TNT is relatively simple. The online streaming service Sling TV offers a handful of streamable live television channels for only $20 per month; both TBS and TNT are included in the default subscription package.

 

TNT and TruTV, which exclusively aired the first four games, are also going to air special “TeamCasts” coverage on Final Four Saturday. In case you missed it, TruTV is also now offered by Sling TV when you purchase the $5 “Lifestyle Extra” add-on; so keep that in mind for later.

 

Over-the-Air

You other option to access CBS is to buy an HDTV antenna; which can pick up the signals transmitted by the broadcast networks like CBS. On average you will spend roughly $30-$60 on an antenna, but it’s worth it. It’s worth it because after the tournament is over you still have an antenna capable of delivering thousands of hours of entertainment for free.

 

In terms price to content ratio, that is very hard to beat.

 

If you are in the market for an antenna, I would recommend buying from Mohu. Based off of military design; their antennas are incredibly light weight and can deliver crystal clear HD picture in even the most dire of circumstances.

 

And with that you should be good to go to. One of the things that cable companies like to do is trick people into thinking that cable is the only place where they can go to get television entertainment. While cord cutting may be a little more complicated that just turning on the TV, it is by no means limited and can serve well as a cable TV alternative.

 

Case in point is March Madness. In the past, cable companies have held the keys to the gate of almost all our most cherished sporting events; but that is slowly changing. With an ever expanding number of streaming options and ways to watch television, restrictive cable TV subscriptions are going the way of the dinosaur.

 

If you’re thinking about cutting the cord, now’s the time to do it. As we’ve seen today, you don’t have to miss out on March Madness to kill the cable bill so why not go ahead and free yourself from cable once and for all? Trust me when I say you’ll be glad you did.

March Madness 2015 Schedule - Round of 64

2015 March Madness Schedule: Round of 64



March Madness 2015 Schedule

 

With Dayton’s nail biting victory over Boise State, the first round of March Madness has come to a close and the second round has officially begun. Over the next two days, 64 teams will duke it out in a non-stop basketball bonanza that will quite literally slow down the entire United States economy.

 

Not even the Olympics can do that.

 

Bearing that in mind, it’s not surprising that the cable companies want to do their best to make sure that they are the gatekeepers to March Madness; ensuring that no one can enjoy the sporting spectacle without getting locked into an expensive cable package.

 

Thankfully the cord cutting revolution has finally reached the sports world and made it possible to bask in the glory that is March Madness without expensive contracts or commitments. Today, we’re going to go over the schedule for the second round of March Madness and I’ll show you how to watch it like a cord cutting pro! Let’s get started!

 

 

How to Watch

 

First, let’s talk about the television channels that will air March Madness this year and how to watch each one. They are as followed: CBS, TBS, TNT, and TruTV.

 

CBS is incredibly easy to access. If you have an over-the-air antenna, you can pick up CBS as well as all the other major broadcast networks (e.g., ABC, NBC, Fox, etc.). Alternatively, you can stream all the games airing on CBS by going to CBSSports.com or by downloading the CBSSports app.

 

In the short term, buying an OTA antenna may not seem like a good investment compared to online streaming. However, a large majority of popular television shows air on network television. While streaming may be easier for the moment, don’t immediately rule out OTA television.

 

An OTA antenna can provide thousands of hours of free HD entertainment, even after March Madness is over; which is important if you’re serious about seeking a cable TV alternative.

 

In order to get TBS, TNT, and TruTV, all you need is the over the top service Sling TV. Sling TV offers streams of dozens of live televisions channels for $20 a month and add-on channels for an additional $5. There are no commitments or contracts, you pay on a month to month basis.

 

Sling TV’s default subscription includes TNT and TBS as part of the package and TruTV is available if you purchase the “Lifestyle Extra” add-on package. So in total you’re looking at a $25 purchase to get access to the remaining March Madness games; which is a bargain compared to one month of cable.

 

 

When and Where to Watch

 

Now that we know how to watch March Madness, let’s take a look at the schedule for the upcoming round.

Mohu Leaf 50 Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna

Mohu Spotlight: Leaf 50 HDTV Antenna



The Mohu Leaf 50 (sometimes seen as the Mohu Ultimate) is a powerful, easy to use cord cutting tool that can be setup in minutes and provide you with all the available over air TV channels in your area for free! I love to use this antenna in my own home to pull in all the major network TV broadcasts from ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX, including local and national news programming in HD.

 

This amplified, flat, indoor HDTV antenna is ideal for anyone who lives up to 50 miles away from television broadcast towers in an urban, suburban or rural setting. I live 45 miles away from the furthest tower in my area on a road a few miles outside of town. (Picture cows in the pasture and turkeys wandering down the middle of the road.)  The over-the-air broadcast television signals have to travel down a long, twisting valley flanked with forested mountains on either side to reach my location.

 

My Leaf 50 is placed about 3″ down from the top of my 8′ living room ceiling and picks up all 14 available channels beautifully.  I have the antenna connected to a 60″ HDTV and everything I watch in high definition looks as good or better than it did from the cable company. I have no regrets about being a cord cutter and the Leaf 50 made it possible for me.

 

I’m not the only one who loves their Mohu Leaf, check out Why the Mohu Leaf is Awesome According to Cord Cutters to see videos of Mohu Leaf owners singing the praises of this incredible technology.
Mohu Leaf 50

 

 

Product Overview

 

As with the other Mohu antennas, the Leaf 50 picks up both VHF and UHF channels. The VHF range for this indoor antenna is up to 20 miles and the UHF range is up to 50. The antenna is multi-directional (able to draw broadcast television channels from any direction) so you don’t have to point in a specific direction to receive a signal.

 

This HDTV antenna costs $69.99 and comes with a 1 year part and labor warranty from Mohu. It’s black on one side and white on the other, but if that doesn’t work for you it’s OK to paint it to match your decor. The Leaf 50 ships with 16′ of detachable white coaxial cable and a USB powered amplifier, which helps this high-tech antenna to filter out RF signals from other devices like wireless telephones, which can negatively affect over air TV reception.

 

The Leaf 50 is modeled after the mud flap antennas used by US military vehicles. It’s sleek look hides high-tech components that provide users  with a reliable way to enjoy free over air TV at home or on the go; such as when RVing.

User Considerations

 

Weather

All over air antennas are subject to fluctuations in weather.  Rain, wind, and snow can affect your reception no matter what antenna you choose.

 

While this can be a frustrating thing to deal with, especially in severe weather, it’s a rare occurrence and something that can often be overcome by simply moving the antenna and re-scanning for channels using your HDTV’s remote.

 

Terrain

In an ideal over air antenna scenario, you would live in a flat area with broadcast towers in sight of your location. Since most of us don’t live in that ideal situation, terrain can be a factor with respect to channel reception.

 

I was really surprised by how well the Leaf 50 worked at my location and while terrain is certainly a factor to be considered, it’s not necessarily going to be an issue for you.

 

The build quality of the Mohu antennas is excellent, and they are backed by stellar customer service. If you have questions about which antenna will work best for you at your location, contact Mohu and they’ll help you to successfully cut the cord.

 

Placement

A key factor in over air channel reception is antenna placement at your location.

 

Placing your Leaf 50 as high as possible is best. In a window, on a shelf, or behind the TV will all work, but you may have to try multiple placements with subsequent channel scans to find just the right placement to obtain all the broadcast channels in your area.

 

Versatile.

Long-range.

Made in USA.

 

If you are looking for an HDTV OTA antenna that’s easy to install and will allow you to cut the cord and enjoy free TV, get the Mohu Leaf 50.

First Four March Madness 2015

2015 March Madness Schedule: The First Four



After what seems like an eternity, March Madness is finally upon us. Soon, these first eight teams will play the first four games to help kick start the grandest collegiate tournament in the United States.

 

If you’re a cord cutter, then odds are you might be having trouble finding out when and where all the games will air. You can breathe a sigh of relief though because I’ve compiled a handy little list of the upcoming games for this inaugural round; so read on if you want to find out more about round one of March Madness.

 

 

How to Watch March Madness

 

First, let’s talk about HOW to watch March Madness…

 

Now there are essentially two different ways you can watch March Madness without cable. The first is to get an over-the-air (OTA) antenna; which can pick up network broadcast stations like ABC or NBC. If you want the best value for your money, I would recommend purchasing an antenna from Mohu. Their antennas are based off of military design and can hold a strong HD signal in less than ideal circumstances.

 

CBS will air its fair share of March Madness games, championship game included, so the modest investment required to purchase an antenna would be well worth the price. Not to mention that after the tournament you will still get thousands of hours of entertainment, for free, from your newly purchased antenna.

 

If, on the other hand, purchasing an antenna is not for you; then you can watch March Madness through the second option: Online Streaming. If you count third party streaming sites, there are an innumerable amount of streaming sources to choose from. However, if you’re like me and hate pop-ups and malware, then the legitimate streams will do just fine.

 

For starters, CBS Sports allows you to stream all of the CBS games they broadcast online for free, and if you subscribe to Sling TV then you can get the rest of the match-ups on TBS, TNT, and now even TruTV.

 

In previous years, the NCAA has allowed you to stream every March Madness game online for free, but unfortunately this year you can only stream the games if you have a cable subscription. It’s a shame, but that’s how modern sports works these days.

 

 

TV Schedule for March Madness First Four

 

Now that we know HOW we can watch the tournament, let’s take a look at match-ups for round one:

 

Tuesday 3/17/15

  • Hampton vs. Manhattan at 6:40 PM EST – TruTV
  • BYU vs. Ole Miss at 9:10 PM EST – TruTV

 

Wednesday 3/18/15

  • North Florida vs. Robert Morris at 6:40 PM EST – TruTV
  • Boise State vs. Dayton at 9:10 PM at 9:10 PM EST – TruTV

 

As you can see, all four games will air on TruTV; which means that you’re going to have to go online to watch the game. Since Sling TV does not carry TruTV, you’re going to have to turn to a third party streaming website if you want to catch the first four. UPDATE: Sling TV has just announced the addition of TruTV in the Lifestyle Extra add-on package ($5 per month on top of the base $20 Best of Live TV package).

 

Stream2Watch and First Row Sports are your best alternatives to paying for Sling TV if you’re looking to stream the games. As I said before, third party streaming sites can be a bit of a gamble, so exercise prudence when picking your stream.

 

Stay tuned for later on in the week when we go over the next round of March Madness. I will be detailing everything you need to know about watching March Madness as a cord cutter!

2015 NCAA Basketball Tournament - March Madness

How Cord Cutters Can Watch March Madness 2015



When Andy Williams said Christmas was the most wonderful time of the year, he obviously forgot about the wonderful month of March. March is that magical time where 68 college basketball teams square off in the  glorious single elimination tournament known as March Madness. No other sport, professional or collegiate, has such an exciting or in-depth playoff system like NCAA Men’s Basketball; and for basketball fans, this is as close to heaven as we’ll get before Judgment Day.

 

If you’re the type of person that wants to kill the cable bill and seek a cable TV alternative, you might be tempted to hold off until March Madness is over. Although an understandable sentiment, I’m here to tell you today the wonderful news that you don’t have to make a sacrifice to get the bountiful basketball bonanza that is March Madness.

 

If you want to kick cable to the curb, and watch March Madness, here’s how you do it.

 

March Madness 2015 Schedule

 

Over-the-Air

 

The easiest way to watch March Madness is to get an OTA antenna, which is a device that picks up the digital signal transmitted by broadcast networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, etc…) and delivers 1080i HD network television to your television for free.

 

Most antennas are inexpensive and only cost around $30-$50. Probably the best antennas out there are made by Mohu. Their antennas are based off of military design, work in any direction, and can stand up to even the nastiest of thunderstorms. For a modest investment, you can get a lot of basketball.

 

Now, CBS is one of the networks with broadcast rights to March Madness, which means you will be able to catch plenty of March Madness games broadcast for free. The only rounds that will be the exception are The First Four, the first half of the Elite 8, and the Final Four.

 

It may be a little disconcerting to miss out the Final Four and half of the Elite 8 games, but don’t worry; later in the post I’m going to show you how to get those games as well.

 

 

CBS Sports

 

If you don’t own an antenna, then there is still hope for you yet. Not only does CBS have a decent chunk of March Madness games, but they also stream those games online for free at CBSSports.com. You can also download the mobile app to stream games, work on your bracket, and get up to date scores and stats on all the games.

 

A lot of the games will be played during the workday, so even if you have an antenna, you may want to download the CBS Sports app to catch a game or two while the boss isn’t looking!

 

 

Sling TV

 

You’ve probably heard about Sling TV and how it offers 14 streamable live television channels for $20 a month. You may have also noticed that a lot of these networks are owned by Turner Broadcasting, who also happens to be the only other company with March Madness broadcast rights.

 

While you can’t watch every March Madness game with Sling TV, you will be able to get the half of the Elite 8 games and the Final Four; both of which will not be broadcasted by CBS.

 

 

NCAA March Madness App

 

If you hate going through different applications and hardware to watch March Madness, the easiest and most complete option would be to download the NCAA March Madness app. Not only do you get stats, scores, and a really cool bracket; you can also stream EVERY March Madness game. Unfortunately, there’s a catch – you have to log in to authenticate with a pay TV provider… so, if you have a buddy with cable who either owes you a favor or is just a good, kind person, see if they’ll be willing to share their login so you can enjoy the madness.

 

As you can see, for a cord cutter, watching March Madness is really easy. Most sports have already pimped out their biggest events to scum sucking cable companies, but not basketball. If you’re looking to kill the cable bill AND enjoy the glory of March Madness; now is the time to do both.

Leaf 30 OTA Antenna

Mohu Spotlight: Leaf 30 OTA Antenna



If you are contemplating cutting the cord, the Leaf 30 HDTV indoor antenna is a smart choice! It’s flat, simple design is easy to place in any room, either vertically or horizontally, without any negative effects on the Leaf 30′s performance. Because it’s multidirectional, obtaining over-the-air signals from all directions, it doesn’t have to be pointed or angled in any one direction. It can be hidden from view or displayed where it’s sure to be a conversation piece.

 

Leaf 30

 

The Leaf 30, Leaf 50 and Leaf Metro antennas are all reversible. Black on one side and white on the other. But that’s not the cool part.  Did you know you don’t have to keep it that way?  If you want to paint your Leaf 30 to match your decor, you can!  A great option for aesthetic loving cord cutters who want to integrate their Leaf antenna into any style room.

Product Overview

 

The Leaf 30 is budget priced at a mere $39.99, but offers consumers a powerful way to cut the cord.  For the cost of dinner out, you can get a remarkably advanced piece of equipment that utilizes military-grade technology to obtain over air broadcast channels in both standard and high definition. VHF channels can be obtained from up to 10 miles with the UHF range of this antenna capable of pulling in programming from as far away as 30 miles. Made in the USA, the Leaf 30 works in Canada too!

 

If you want to see Mohu Leaf antennas in action, be sure to read:  Why the Mohu Leaf is Awesome According to Cord Cutters.  There are lots of video links to video reviews by real Leaf antenna users, showing you how well the Leaf antennas work at their locations.

 

Leaf 30 edge
The Leaf 30 isn’t complicated to setup or use, and works perfectly to pull in free over air TV signals, making it a cord cutter favorite that may be perfect for you too. You can plug in your zip code to get an estimate of the channels you could receive with the Leaf 30 (and all of the other Mohu antennas) or contact Mohu customer support for a detailed channel analysis based on your full address. No matter which antenna you go with, be mindful of the following factors that affect all over air TV reception, no matter where you live or what OTA antenna you choose.

 

 

User Considerations

 

Weather

All over air antennas are subject to fluctuations in weather.  Rain, wind, and snow can affect your reception no matter what antenna you choose.

 

While this can be a frustrating thing to deal with, especially in severe weather, it’s a rare occurrence and something that can often be overcome by simply moving the antenna and re-scanning for channels.

 

Terrain

In an ideal over air antenna scenario, you would live in a flat area with broadcast towers in sight of your location. Since most of us don’t live in that ideal situation, terrain can be a factor with respect to channel reception.

 

It’s possible to overcome some issues with terrain by using a Mohu Jolt Digital Antenna Amplifier. Adding the Jolt amplifier to your coaxial cable can assist the Leaf 30 in fine tuning its signal reception and clearing up pixelation.

 

Placement

A key factor in over air channel reception is antenna placement at your location.

 

Placing your Leaf 30 as high as possible is best. In a window, on a shelf, or behind the TV will all work, but you may have to try multiple placements with subsequent channel scans to find just the right placement to obtain all the broadcast channels in your area. Be mindful of metal objects in close proximity as this can also impact reception.

 

Inexpensive, yet powerful technology with the ability to blend seamlessly into the background, and bring free TV in high definition to your home.

 

That’s the Leaf 30.
