Details

Step aside, rabbit ears! Make way for the all-new Leaf® 50 the most powerful indoor antenna yet. The Leaf 50 indoor HDTV antenna features the same incredible design as the classic Leaf® antenna, but now includes a revolutionary digital HDTV amplifier with a low noise figure and one-of-a-kind RF filtering. What exactly does this mean in terms of performance? It means that the Leaf Ultimate indoor antenna is optimized specifically for TV stations, filtering any additional RF signals that can hinder picture quality. The result? A top-performing indoor antenna that will allow you to receive the top 20 shows for FREE in full high 1080p definition.

Performance:
An astounding amount of study and engineering went into the design of the Leaf 50™ Indoor HDTV antenna. It wasn't until one of our engineers decided to convert from cable television to over-the-air broadcasting that we realized that there were no high performance indoor antennas on the market. The Leaf 50™ amplified Antenna was designed by experienced antenna engineers who have been designing antennas for the US military for years (see our sister company GreenWave Scientific).
Uses USB powering option, unlike anything else. The Leaf 50™ antenna is powered via a USB port located on the amplifier, which allows you to power the amplifier using an open USB port on the back of your TV. The advantage of doing so is that the amplifier will only draw power when the TV is turned on, eliminating parasitic power consumption when the amplifier isn’t needed. If you do not have an open USB port on the back of your TV, the Leaf 50™ also includes a power cube that will enable you to power the amplifier using any standard AC wall outlet.

What is the range of the Leaf 30? What is the difference between the Leaf and the Leaf 50?
The Leaf - The original passive, non-powered, award winning indoor TV antenna. Now with a 10 ft. coaxial cable. Range is 30 miles for UHF and 10 miles for VHF.

The Ultimate - An amplified powered indoor TV antenna with Clean Peak filter technology that removes unwanted RF signals and boosts the ones you want for the more difficult locations. Nothing like it on the market! Also with USB powering option and 16 ft. cable. Range is about 50 miles for UHF and 20 miles for VHF. Additional 5 dB gain than the Leaf Plus and improved filtering technology make it the best Leaf yet.

Both are modeled after the discreet vehicular mudflap antenna designed by our engineering team for the U.S. Military.


Will The Leaf Work For Me?
The Leaf is designed to work within 35 miles of the towers with the above criteria.

The Leaf Ultimate is designed to "amplify" or boost the clarity of your picture when it falls into the moderate or yellow areas but also provides an additional 10 miles or so. However, the Leaf Ultimate may not work well if the location is within 3 miles of the broadcasting towers, as the strong signals can actually overload the amplifier of the Leaf Ultimate and may reduce the overall performance.


How much does the Leaf cost every month?
Nothing. The Leaf Antenna is a one-time purchase. The Leaf will allow you access to free OTA (Over the Air) network programming such as NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox (varies by location). There is no monthly fee.


I heard that the Leaf doesn't receive VHF or Hi-V band stations. Is this true?


I have a flat screen TV, does this mean that my TV is digital ready? Do I need a digital-ready TV to use the Leaf Antenna?
Yes, your TV does need to be digital ready. Many users mistakenly assume that their flat screen, high-definition TV is automatically digital ready, when it may not be. Please check your television manual to see if your TV supports ATSC tuning.


Can I use the Leaf Antenna with an old standard definition (SD) TV?
Yes. To use the Leaf with an SDTV you will need a digital converter box. Any HD programming that you receive will be displayed on your television in SD quality.


Can I get Hulu Plus, Netflix, and streaming content through my Leaf Antenna?
No, the Leaf Antenna is not a streaming device, and functions only as an antenna to receive Over-The-Air (OTA) High Definition Broadcast TV signals. You will need a streaming device (i.e. Roku, D-Link Boxee Box, or gaming console) to utilize Hulu Plus and/or Netflix. Your Leaf and your streaming device should be viewed as complimentary products and are connected to your television through different input jacks. You will be able to switch between the two with your television remote.


Can I use an extension cable to extend the coaxial of the Leaf to acquire a more suitable location for my Leaf?
Yes. Just make sure to use 75 Ohm coaxial cable such as RG-6 or RG-11, low-loss versions of these are preferred. Running a cable greater than 25ft may degrade your antenna's performance.


Can I use a splitter to connect the Leaf Antenna to more than one TV?
We recommend that you use one Leaf per TV. The splitter divides the received signal strength between each TV which may mean that you may not get all of the channels you would get otherwise.


Can I combine two Leaf Antennas to get a stronger signal?
No. Two antennas will not result in a stronger signal, and will not enhance results.

We just cut the cable and the Leaf 50 antenna was the topping on the cake! They arrived one day after ordering (helps we are only about 25 miles from where they are made), and after hooking up worked like a dream. I order the bundle so I can have one upstairs and downstairs. Thought I might have an issue with the one downstairs since there are some trees and an aluminum gazebo outside the room, no problems at all. Stations come in clear and with no interference.

I live in an elderly apartment building with three floors and forty apartments. I'm on the first floor. I live in Easthampton, MA and our building is in the shadow of Mount Tom on one side and tall trees on the other. I was positive I would have to send this back but decided I would take a chance in case it just might work, hopefully. I was amazed to find it did! I am a news junkie and all the cable stations want a minimum of $29.99 per month, just for the news!! I am thrilled... it's been almost 10 months since I was able to watch the news and I have been feeling like I'm in withdrawal. It's worth every penny. I wish I knew about this antenna sooner. Thanks so much for this great product. (Posted on 7/4/2014)

Excellent Performance!

I got tired of huge cable bills, and frankly, I don't have the time or interest to watch a zillion channels. I happened upon this product in my search, and boy have I found a gem!! I am very un-technical; yet I was able to hook this up in about 15 minutes - though I do have a very new TV. I got all of the local channels. The only thing I'd advise is that you do your channel search a couple times. The second time I did my search I got a few more channels. This is an excellent product, and I'm sure you'll be happy you got one. I feel like one smart lady! (Posted on 6/25/2014)

I previously had bunny ears and all antennas need the correct positioning on various factors before you get optimal reception. I like this one because of its size and ease of hanging out of sight. I also hung the extra length of cable in a loop on the wall with the antenna instead of letting it lay on the floor behind the tv and this also improved reception. (Posted on 5/20/2014)
Does the job.
- Review by: IdolFan "DDT"

I received this yesterday and hooked it up to a new HD tv. Ive had satellite for 7 yrs. and want to get rid of the big monthly bill I pay to get approximately 20 channels I watch with any regularity out of the 250 channels I'm charged for. Downgrading the satellite package just takes away the good channels and leaves more filler. I bought a roku box that I love for movies and radio, etc. and have a pc hooked up to the tv to stream some of the network tv shows you can see online. I have a desk I use for the tv stand, have my dvd player on a bottom shelf and my keyboard and mouse on the tray. There is a side bookcase that runs perpendicular that I removed the shelf from and my pc sits exactly in the space so nothing is an eyesore but is convenient. I got the leaf antenna to pick up local channels and local news. I have a mountain within 5 ft. of the back of my house and one directly across the road so I was hoping for 4 channels but got 7. I tried the RCA antenna that is similar and only picked up 2 channels. The leaf brought the channels in with good picture and sound and no dropouts after I found the best place for reception. The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is that the cord is heavier then the antenna itself so it doesnt lie well flat because the cable hanging down can pull on the antenna and the same thing for hanging it on the wall. I get better reception with it on my wall. I havent figured out how Im going to hang it yet but overall Im pleased with it and it does its job. Im picking up 3 channels I didnt know were available in my area so I do recommend this product. (Posted on 5/20/2014)
No miracles but well worth the money!

I am always skeptical of over-glowing testimonials. However, my husband and I made the decision to cut out cable and wanted to try our luck with over the air (OTA) TV. We just were not getting 70$ a month pleasure from our very basic cable package. We tried a 7$ rabbit ears that got us about 4 channels clearly. However, I wanted ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and the CW. After looking at many antennae, We opted to try the Leaf. It cost exactly the same amount as our cable refund.

My hobbyist electrician husband was disappointed with the quality of the connector....it was not milled right inside and he had to do quite a bit of work to make it fit our standard HD TV. Once that was accomplished, we then had to spend about 3 hours placing and auto-searching channels until we found a spot where I received all 5 'mandatory' channels. We get about 20 channels in all, 5 are repeats, 8 are PBS variations.

We live 30 miles in either direction from major markets in a flat midwestern town. We succeeded in picking up some channels from each city. We did not pick up all of the strong or moderately strong channels the FCC site listed for our town. However, we did get all the basics we felt we had to have. The channels we do get come in absolutely crystal clear in HD.

If you have modest viewing needs and are fed up with satellite and cable, the Leaf is absolutely worth a try. I am thrilled to have free TV. It is plenty for us and eliminates any need to even consider an outdoor antenna. (Posted on 5/20/2014)
MOHU Indoor Slim Antenna
- Review by: dmmusic "dfmusic"

Rating
I bought this indoor MOHU Slim Antenna to replace an old Radio Shack amplified rabbit ears type antenna. The old antenna would pick up all the available stations but required a power wall wart and a lot of constant fiddling to get all the stations. The MOHU Slim Antenna gives the same reception without a power supply and once I had it adjusted, worked as well or better than my old antenna.

Set up: True you can mount it anywhere indoors, but then don't expect 100% reception. Another reviewer suggested to mount it to a larger sheet of cardboard and by trial and error find the best location and angle. Make sure to rescan channels with each new location/angle.

What I did: As a musician I had an old wire type music stand. I taped the antenna to it and placed it near a top floor window of my house. I did a few scans and eventually got the channels I expected. ([...] will tell you what to expect in your location) Some angle adjustment is needed to get the best reception. I kept rotating the antenna and finally found the perfect position and all the expected stations are clear and no further adjustment is necessary. Of course your reception will depend on your location, tv tuner sensitivity, trees etc.
In Northern NJ I receive 40+ channels that are a mix of network, PBS, music only, NOAA, foreign and Spanish. (Posted on 5/20/2014)

I live between Baton Rouge & New Orleans, which is an area far from the TV station towers, and when asking about a TV antenna the sales guy said the only way to obtain reception was to use an outdoor antenna. I bought my unit (the Leaf Ultimate) locally for a good price, hooked it up & received all the local major stations.
The reception was very good with a clear crisp picture. I'd recommend this product to others. (Posted on 5/19/2014)

Took a chance on one of these after reading all the positive reviews. Turns out it out performed my 84 element rooftop antenna. 23 channels with the Leaf vs.18 with the outdoor. Don't get discouraged if it doesn't work well out of the box. Move it around and find the sweet spot. It comes with a long length of cable for this purpose....and keep it high on your wall if possible. Digital tv is a funny animal. You WILL get dropouts no matter what kind of antenna you use, but The Leaf minimized it. All in all a very good product. Money well spent. (Posted on 5/19/2014)
Leaf Ultimate HD Antenna is a great alternative
- Review by: Cliff in Copperas

Rating
I purchased this as an experiment to see if I could cut the cable. Right now I'm paying close to $100 for cable to have a HD/DVR in the living room and a basic cable box in my bedroom. Now I get over 120 channels and none of the premium channels. This was really easy to set up, I just had to remember how to run scan on my TV. I'm testing it out in my bedroom for starters. After trying a couple locations in my bedroom, I pick up 10 clear HD looking channels. After seeing this works, I’m going to returning the cable box for the bedroom for sure but I’m not sure I can give up the direct TV box for my living room just yet. If I was on a tight $$ budget this would be a must. But for my spare rooms this works out great. It will still save me around $20 a month on my cable bill. The only reason for giving it 4 stars is I only get 10 of the 19 channels the website says I should be getting for my area. It does work great and is easy to set up.

After being disappointed with previous indoor antennas, I looked into the Leaf Ultimate for better reception. I am glad to say that it met my expectations.

Best antenna for cutting cable
- Review by: Tartallini

Living in a valley with towers at both ends extending as far away as 50 miles, the Mohu Leaf Ultimate was my choice over the non-amplified versions. Set-up was simple, and after a bit of effort to find just the right placement, I pulled in all the available over-air HD channels in my area! I'm delighted with the way the Mohu Leaf Ultimate works, and thrilled to cut $90 per month off my cable bill by using it. Using the Mohu in combination with streaming services is much more cost effective than cable, and gives me back my options as a consumer. Highly recommend Mohu products! (Posted on 5/19/2014)

I was tired of paying an outrageous amount for basic cable TV service, frequently unreliable. This product works exactly the way they say it does.

Bought the Leaf Antenna today. Set up was simple. At first only got 2 stations clearly. Called customer service. The customer service guy was very friendly and informative.

- Review by: Zan

I am so utterly ecstatic about The Leaf Ultimate Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna and it's performance. I returned two other antennas today, as neither of them located all of the major broadcast stations whose towers are within 30 miles of my home. I only have Basic Cable from Comcast, but the price keeps rising and just went up again on the current bill. I just want to be able to watch regular network stations and PBS without having to pay to do so. I have been entirely disappointed with other antennas that I have purchased and returned during this past year. This antenna will not go back on return; it's mine; Comcast will no longer be getting my money. I am getting a lot of extra channels, too. I'm so happy that I scared my dogs when I jumped up and down with great enthusiasm. THANK YOU FOR A SUPERIOR PRODUCT THAT WORKS. (Posted on 5/19/2014)

I won't get into technicalities. I like the MOHU Leaf Ultimate because it was easy enough to install - didn't have to go out on roof or anything. Just tacked it to the wall behind my TV, connected the cords and power, did the scan on the TV and IT WORKS. I still have cable for internet access in my home, but the price is lots cheaper without cable TV. There's lots of free movies, concerts and documentaries on YouTube. Netflix is great, too. I have a smart BluRay player along with a smart tv. Your options are endless. You could waste a lot of time watching a lot of stuff. I still like to turn it off and quietly read a good book. It's nice to know it's there when I want it or when company is over. (Posted on 5/19/2014)

We do not watch much TV and I refuse to pay for cable TV. My 25 year old Sony TV finally quit working and we purchased a new HDTV. While the old rabbit ears worked well, they looked awful.

I live on the family farm in southwest Louisiana. The tower that is closest to my residence is about 35 miles away. I taped the leaf to a window pane. I instantly logged in 22 channels. I moved it about 12 inches to the north and that caused it log in 27 channels. I will now take down my antenna outside that rests on a 25 foot tower. It receives only 19 channels. No more worrying about wind and lightning. I cut the coax with Direct T.v. five years ago after the 8th rate increase. I estimate that I have saved slightly more than $3,000.00. (Posted on 5/19/2014)

I purchased and installed the Leaf Utlimate HDTV antenna and couldn't be happier. This antenna locked on to the most all signals from the DTV towers 37-38 miles away from my home in the Houston NW area.

After the TV completed its auto programming it reported 77 total DTV channels were available. Now, in this total a large number of primary channles have several sub-programming channels. To me this is incredible performance for an indoor antenna that is simply hung on a wall. Picture quality on most all channels is superb.

As I mentioned the antenna was recently installed so I haven't experimented much with the antenna position but at this distance from towers the antenna can't lock on to the VHF DTV channels (2-13). Based on what I read about this unit, it should. (Posted on 5/19/2014)

When I discovered that it was possible to receive over the air broadcasts here in Western Canada using an antenna, I recently tested many antennas to see which would work best. I did a detailed study with a RCA loop, RCA flat omni-directional, two Philips loops, and Terk units and none could even meet the quality of signal I could receive with the Mohu Ultimate leaf. The best I could obtain with the others was 9 channels on the Terk. The Mohu Ultimate picked up 14 channels ans the best thing was once I found the best location for it, it works every time! As others have stated, you need to test out various mounting locations and even inches up or down , left or right can make a difference. I have bought two units and one is mounted near the floor on a lower wall, while the other is mounted above a window on the wall. Strangely placing it on the window did not work as well. Probably because there is a bug screen in front of it to contend with. Thanks Mohu! I highly recommend your product. The best Indoor antenna out there! I'm cutting my cable. (Posted on 5/19/2014)
Amplified improvement over Mohu Leaf & Leaf Plus

Previous to this purchase I tried the Mohu Leaf Paper-Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - Made in USA and Leaf Plus Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna at my home. Neither product worked better than the Philips SDV2750/27 Amplified Superior Digital Design Antenna, and none of the three could pull in more than five channels.

In other words - they didn't work for me.

When I saw the Mohu line had a new one - the Mohu MH-004092 Leaf Ultimate, I was pessimistically optimistic that with a 50 mile range it might be able to reach the tower located 43 miles away and pull in a couple more channels. TVFool had indicated I needed an outdoor antenna to grab over-air signals in my area, but I decided to give this one a try and if it didn't work - I could always return it.

"Mohu Ultimate - A Nice Surprise!"

Unboxed it looks and feels very much like the other two Leaf products (white on one side, black on the other), but it has an amplifier dongle, that is powered by USB. You can use the included AC adapter (with USB port on it) to power it by AC, or you can plug into a USB port on your amplifier or TV to power it. I chose the AC adapter, and plugged mine into a surge protected power strip. A blue light on the amplifer came on when it was powered up.

Directions for the Mohu Leaf Ultimate are simple and straightforward. There's not a lot to get confused about, which is great. Anyone can set this antenna up!

Assembly is as easy as attaching the cords per the directions, powering up the amplifier, and hanging the Mohu Ultimate in the best spot for over air reception. Finding the optimum placement for the Mohu Ultimate to work its magic is the tricky part!

It took me 5 attempts at hanging the Mohu (taking note of channels received after auto-tune and the signal quality of those channels) before I finally found the perfect spot to receive all of the HD channels in my area from CBS, NBC and ABC.

Hung 7' away from other electronics, about 1" down from the ceiling, and about 5" from the corner on an East facing wall with a large window opposite the wall, the Mohu Ultimate did what none of the others could accomplish. The over-air HD channels I'd been hoping I could pull in from 43 miles away, through mountains, were now mine without being hooked up to cable! Crystal clear reception on all available HD channels, with no dropped signals or pixalation.

That was something the Mohu Leaf Paper-Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - Made in USA and Leaf Plus Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna had not been able to accomplish for me, due to shorter range and perhaps never before finding 'just the right spot' to place the Mohu for optimum reception.

However, depending upon where you live, you might be able to save yourself some money. If you live in a urban area with lots of towers nearby, you may not need the 'Ultimate' and its amplified range. Consider saving a bit of money and going with the original Mohu leaf first, after you check with TVFool and/or antennaweb for signal strength and range in your area.

Mohu Ultimate is a top notch device that works as promised when correctly placed for optimium performance. It's build quality is solid, and it's easy to set-up and use.

Do I wish it was a tad less pricey? Sure, but for its unobtrusive good looks, outstanding performance and money it's going to save me in the long run over cable - it's worth it!

I will be using the Mohu Ultimate, a Roku 2 XS 1080p Streaming Player to stream Netflix, HuluPlus and Amazon Instant Video. That combination will save me approximately $100 a month in cable bills. Something I thought I'd never be able to do with a very simple looking indoor antenna.

Definitely worth a look no matter where you live - rural, suburban or city dwellers - if you want to cut ties with cable TV.

Tips to getting the Mohu Ultimate to work for you:

1. To find the best placement for your Mohu, check TVFool for towers in your area. Knowing what channels are available, their strengths, and distance from you, and direction, is very helpful in finding the best spot for this omni-directional antenna.

2. Try at least half a dozen spots in your room to find what works best, and then you can neaten up your wiring as needed. Do a channel search after every new placement and take note of each channel's quality and tweak accordingly.

3. Hang the Mohu as high up on a wall as possible for the best reception to start, and then adjust as needed.

UPDATE: 2/5/2013

Getting nice clear HD reception from all the biggies in my area (CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, and FOX). Learned that if I moved the Mohu up or down on the wall - even as little as 2" makes a difference in reception! I actually lost ABC when I placed the Mohu too high on the wall, but gained it back by dropping it down 2".

To get proper placement you may want to get a second person to help you, especially if you know the channels that should come in (because the towers are close enough and/or you've received the signal before), and have them make minor adjustments up and down to get things adjusted for optimum reception.

I have noticed a slight delay on audio over air on one channel, but otherwise, looks as good as it did using Charter cable. (Posted on 5/19/2014)

It's a great antenna, and works really good. I really like the design. The white or black make it easier to make it less noticeable; then the traditional rabbit ear design. I actually have it on the area of wall right behind the tv. You can't see it, and no ill effect on reception.

This was a great addition to our Roku 2. We now have all the roku has, and major broadcast channel with the local news. Don't get me wrong, it's not a cable line up, but how channels do you actually watch with them. (Posted on 5/19/2014)
Best Antenna I Ever Had

For many days I was looking for an antenna to replace my expensive cable bills. I looked in stores such as Fry’s Electronics and Best Buy, but always came back disappointed. After a lot of searching, I found the Leaf Ultimate HDTV Antenna. I contacted Mohu’s customer service and a very nice lady, very professional, answered all my technical questions, and even located a Sam’s Club in Phoenix, Arizona that has this item available. I went and bought it and I could not be happier. It received 48 channels and the HD picture is better that my previous cable company used to give me! I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to give up their cable bill. (Posted on 5/19/2014)

I bought this on review from a friend. I was skeptical because there are a lot of hills and mountains here. I was able to get 24 channels downstairs in my home and 27 upstairs. I am able to get ABC, CBS and NBC. Those are what matter to me. :) Thank you for saving me money and being made in the USA! (Posted on 5/19/2014)

I've owned this for over a year, and love it! I've recommended this to many friends and family over the past few months, and I get over 30+ HD channels in Portland w/ the Leaf. Line of sight is important when setting it up--If you live behind a hill... good luck. Otherwise, it's worth the one-time purchase price to never have to pay a subscription to cable or satellite again! (Posted on 5/19/2014)

So we have an antenna on our roof (40' above the ground) which could only get us 10 channels. Right now with the Leaf we get 42 channels and the leaf is in a transom window above the front door. I will be purchasing another for my other home soon. Thank you for giving us awesome broadcast TV! Between you and Roku, there is no need for cable. Buying your antenna paid for itself the first day. All I can say is AWESOME!!! (Posted on 5/19/2014)

I have never owned a digital antenna, so I do not really have anything to compare this to besides my dish service. I live about 30-40 miles away from most of the towers. However, I received 16 channels with this thing. I live out in the country, which is actually better for reception since there are not as many buildings etc. that could potentially interfere with the signal.

The picture is AMAZING. I simply cannot believe that this antenna boasts true 1080p through a coaxial cable, but it DOES. I was amazed... No HDMI, no HD boxes, nothing... Just hooked into the back of the TV. It is pretty obvious to me at this point that cable/satellite companies are really taking advantage of customers with all of the HD charges. My plan is to use this antenna with a used series 3 Tivo that I purchased on eBay. If you purchase a used Tivo with lifetime service, you do not even have to pay the monthly surcharge for Tivo (otherwise it's like 13-15 per month). Tivo normally charges $499 for the lifetime activation (plus the cost of the box), so it really pays to find a used box on ebay. So really, all of this means that I will be able to get HD DVR service with 16 channels with a digital guide, including all locals, for literally $0.00 per month.

Overall, this antenna is great if you are in a good location to receive channels. I used tvfool.com to predict which channels I would get based on my address. It was pretty accurate, but I actually got more than it predicted. (Posted on 5/19/2014)
Very Worthy Upgrade

In short: I bought an expensive indoor Terk and Winegarden antenna. They pulled in 2 or 3 channels. Then I bought the amplified Leaf and it pulled in just under 40 channels. I bought one for each TV. I just tried the Ultimate Leaf, and it pulled in all of the missing channels. I now get everything that is possible in the Cincinnati area. I just ordered two more. Wow! Amazing. I now get everything my neighbor does with his high end outdoor antenna. This is simply an amazing product! (Posted on 5/19/2014)

After buying 2 other in-house air antennas, I was only able to get 3 channels on my new flat screen tv. Now that I purchased the MOHU Leaf in-house air antenna, I get 51 stations very clearly. AND, I have not had to connect to cable and the monthly fees of cable. I don't have to use a digital convert devise. The MOH Leaf air antennas is a cost-effective benefit, I only had to pay the cost-effective one time cost of $89. (Posted on 5/19/2014)
