Mohu Graduates From College



college-graduationCollege graduation season is here and a Mohu antenna can help new grads save money.  A Mohu antenna provides free over the air (OTA) TV for budget conscious college grads. An estimated 1.6 million students are expected to be part of the class of 2014 and they are saddled with the double whammy of high student loans and a tough job market.

According to CNN, the average student loan is $29,000. This class is going to have to spend and save wisely in order to keep their finances in order. Many of these new grads are what the TV industry calls “cord-nevers.” They use cell phones instead of landlines and watch TV content on computers or tablets. The last time they saw cable TV may have been at their parents’ home or at a bar or restaurant.

Cutting the Cord–One Month Later



Mohu has a guest blogger today. Last month, Michelle–a friend of Sarah’s–wrote her experience about cutting the cord. She’s back with an update.

cutting-the-cord-cord-cutting-mI was a little nervous when we started our cord-cutting experience and there have been a few glitches with the cable company, but overall I’m really happy with our experience. I found out, very painfully, that the cable service didn’t terminate the day I called to cancel, though they did cut the signal immediately. The date of termination happened when I returned my boxes and remotes to their over-crowded office. I waited for over an hour to return them and saved the receipt and they STILL sent me a bill for $90+ that includes some sort of late fee. I haven’t paid the bill and called them to inform them that I am no longer a customer so we’ll see what happens.

Mohu Goes Metro



leaf metroWelcome to the Mohu Leaf Metro!  The Leaf Metro is the smallest size possible for delivering high quality TV reception. Borrowing from the same advanced U.S. Military technology built into the Leaf family of antennas, the Leaf Metro reaches out in a 25-mile radius to capture the most popular TV shows, news and sports, on both network and local television in full 1080 HD, enabling consumers to watch their favorite broadcast TV without a cable subscription.

“We believe in designing high-quality products tailored to the needs of those who are using them. The Leaf Metro is an ideal option for our urban customers, many of whom are young, on a budget, and have limited space,” said Mark Buff, president and co-founder of Mohu. “We’re bringing them a product that’s even smaller, snazzier and more affordable than our top-rated and especially popular Leaf 30 and Leaf 50 HDTV antennas, while delivering the excellent performance that is Mohu’s standard.”

It's a Bird, It's a Plane…It's a Sky



SkyMohu makes great antennas to bring free OTA TV to your home. The Mohu Leaf was our first product and still one of our best-sellers. But our designers and engineers realized there was also a need for a whole-house antenna that could be mounted outside or in an attic. The Mohu Sky is the answer to that.  Like all of Mohu’s antennas, it’s a great looking answer to the  metal “lobster cage” design that is prevalent in the industry. In addition, because it is mounted higher it has better “line of sight” and can bring in better reception if your home is located in an area with terrain issues or between 50 and 60 miles from local television towers.

In addition, the Mohu Sky is multidirectional, meaning it does not need to be pointed in a specific direction to get reception. This allows the antenna to get reception from multiple TV towers. This is a huge benefit in the real world because in most areas different broadcasters use different towers. The Sky can also be connected to up to four TVs in one home without a loss of signal strength. Mohu’s 4-way Jolt acts as the “splitter” to split the signal and send it to different TVs. If your home had satellite or Dish TV in the past it’s possible that the coaxial cable used for that service is still in your house and then it’s simply a matter of mounting the Sky on your roof or attic and tying it into the existing coax line.

Leaf on wallIf that sounds too complicated, most regions have TV installers that will charge a fee but will get your Sky up and running. The Mohu website has the manual available for download prior to purchasing the Sky so you can see what’s involved. If you’re not ready to purchase a Sky, start small. Check out our TV For Free tool, which was recently updated with terrain data, and hook up a Leaf or Leaf Ultimate to your HDTV. Fall in love with the beautiful picture and when you’re ready for the Sky, we’ll have one waiting for you.







Families That Changed TV



By its broad reach into America’s living rooms, TV has the power to change our perceptions of the world. And in some cases, TV changed our world, either by Kennedy’s telegenic appearance in the 1960 presidential debates affecting the outcome of that election, or by watching Neil ArmstrongLucy-and-ricky take his first steps on the moon.

In a more light-hearted way the portrayal of TV families has changed over time. Leave it to Beaver was squeaky-clean in its portrayal of a “typical” American family where mom stayed home taking care of kids and the house and dad went off to work. Even I Love Lucy was edgy for its time, as Ricky Ricardo was Cuban and neither the Ricardos nor Fred and Ethel (their neighbors) had children. After the tumultous changes of the 1960s, TV branched out into showing different types of families, such as black families, single parent families, and even gay families.

Screen Shot 2014-03-25 at 10.51.02 AMAll in the Family, a sitcom about a family was a perfect foil for the political tensions of the early 1970s. Archie Bunker, a blue collar, conservative workingman, cannot understand the changing world, especially the ultra-liberal beliefs and politics of his hippie-ish daughter and son-in-law who are living with him. That scenario was flipped in the 1980s with Family Ties. Michael J. Fox played Alex Keaton, the conservative Reagan supporting teenager who baffles his ex-hippie, free-loving parents.

The LA Times has put together a fun photo montage of 11 families that changed TV. All but two were on broadcast TV–and some still are–free to anyone with a Mohu HDTV antenna.

Mohu Introduces "Channels"–a New Way of Watching TV



Channels OTAMohu, creator of the world’s first paper-thin HDTV antenna, has just started a Kickstarter campaign designed to help bring its new Mohu Channels Personal TV viewing device to market in June 2014. Mohu Channels allows anyone to easily create their own personalized TV channel guide mash-up of their favorite over-the-air (OTA) content, streaming apps such as Netflix and Hulu+ and websites together in a single viewing experience

One of the biggest hurdles consumers face in the morphing world of television content is finding a way to easily access the TV content they want – whether it’s free OTA broadcast programming, content from Netflix or Hulu+, or their favorite web-only shows and websites. Today, consumers have to hop through a jumble of inputs – from cable and  satellite TV boxes and OTT boxes like Roku or Apple TV to new devices like Chromecast. Mohu Channels changes all that by allowing consumers to access their favorite TV content with a single, unified and personalized channel line-up without ever switching sources. More →







What We Love About the Mohu Leaf and Curve



HDTV Antenna, HD TV AntennaMohu makes three great HDTV antennas: the Leaf,  the Curve designer antenna and the Sky attic antenna. The Leaf and the Curve are indoor antennas and the Sky can be used either inside or outside. For now, we’re going to focus on what makes the Leaf and the Curve such great antennas. The Mohu Leaf is Mohu’s first product and remains one of the best selling indoor HDTV antennas on Amazon. The original Mohu Leaf was handmade and had the electronics sandwiched between two laminated sheets of paper and was first sold at a weekend flea market here in Raleigh, NC. The original flexible, paper thin design worked so well that the paper thin design remains one of the Leaf’s key features. As an added bonus, it is still made in America.

The Olympics and an Antenna



Every Olympic Games has its share of drama, controversy and often politics. This year, the Sochi Olympics seems to have more than its fair share–cost overruns, snow (or lack of), the injury-inducing slope style course, etc. But once the games start, with a magical opening ceremony and the Parade of Nations, everything takes a back seat to the games themselves.

Parade of nationsTrue story–I had settled in to watch the opening ceremonies on Friday night when a friend who is a hard-core Netflix viewer called  in a full blown panic because she couldn’t watch the opening ceremonies. She didn’t have an antenna and found out  she couldn’t stream the Sochi Olympics from NBC’s website without a cable subscription. So I unhooked my Mohu Leaf and drove it over to her house so she and her family could watch the opening ceremonies.
