The Mohu Leaf 50 (formerly Leaf Ultimate) is the amplified version of the world’s first paper-thin HDTV antenna. This omni-directional antenna reaches out in a 50-mile radius from your home to bring you the most popular over-the-air (OTA) TV shows, news and sports, on both network and local television in full 1080 HD – for FREE. No need for cable or satellite fees to watch stations like PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox, with each network having its own digital sub-channels for maximum content. The Leaf 50 is derived from advanced U. S. Military technology and is combined with Mohu’s CleanPeakTM filter technology to eliminate unwanted cellular or FM signals.
The Leaf 50 comes with a 16 ft. cable, 15dB gain antenna amplifier and includes an antenna amplifier with CleanPeak Filtering technology. With CleanPeak, the amplifier filters out cellular and FM signals, letting you pull in a clearer picture, receive more channels, reduce dropouts and increase your overall experience with broadcast television. The amplifier’s patent pending USB powering option boasts an impressive 15dB of gain across the entire television broadcasting band, allowing the weakest signals to be received and viewed. The amplified antenna turns on and off with your television when using the TV's USB port to power the amplifier. Coupled with the clarity of over-the-air (OTA) broadcast signals, this delivers a superior picture quality than is possible through the compressed cable or satellite broadcast signals.
Cable rates increased 30% in 5 years, 3x the rate of inflation. The top 96 out of 100 most viewed shows on television are broadcast over-the-air in the United States according Nielsen. Plus with free over-the-air television you will get better HD picture quality than you can get with cable or satellite. Digital television broadcasts are uncompressed, resulting in the best picture quality offered today. The Leaf has proven itself to be the category leader in performance and style by numerous independent tests and reviews. Top reviews of the Mohu Leaf 50 include CNet, Yahoo, CNBC, HDTV Magazine, PC World and dozens more!
