Clear Tv

1663 Votes

Clear TV is an ultra thin HD digital antenna that allows you to intercept television signals for free. The closer you are to a broadcasting tower, the more channels you will pick up. The most important thing you need to know about this device is:

  • It Works!; &
  • It's not much different than any other digital antenna.
We've conducted a complete review of the Clear TV finding all the pros, cons, and everything the advertisers don't tell you about it. You don't have to take our word for it; see the over 143 real customer opinions & reviews here.

The Claim

The As Seen on TV commercial boasts about never having to pay for satellite or cable again. They compare having this antenna to cable and satellite. $960 per year is the amount of money the company claims you can save by canceling your cable or satellite service and using only the Clear TV. Is you were to cancel these services for 10 years you'd save in excess of $10,000; an astronomical figure for home entertainment. The spokesman is seen using this device on a boat, something that could never be done using traditional TV providers. The benefits of their product are all the areas that people detest about their current services, such as rate increases, excessive channels that you will never watch, and being locked into a contract. With an antenna you are committed to no one and will not face these irritations.
BUT WAIT! - Yes, there's more. They only tell you about how great their invention is.
There is a lot they don't tell you...

Total Cost Breakdown

Buy 1 From Official Site If you buy Clear TV from their official As Seen on TV website, you'll pay $19.95 plus $7.99 processing and handling. Your combined total for 1 antenna will be $27.94.

Buy 1 Get 1 Free By agreeing to the Official provider's Buy 1 Get 1 Free offer you will be required to pay 2x seperate processing and handing fees of $7.99 each. This results in your paying $19.99 for the first antenna, and $15.98 in processing and handing fess; for a total of $35.97.

Buy 1 From Online Store If you purchase a Clear TV from an online store such as TVStuffSale.com, you'll pay $19.95 plus $9.99 processing and handling. Your combined total for 1 antenna will be $29.94.
While this is the more the slightly more expensive option ($2 more), there are additional benefits described below.

Pros

  • Don't pay for channels you don't want.

    Large television service providers market their channels in packages. By using these packages she bundle 1 or 2 good channels, with 5 or more additional channels that hardly anyone wishes to watch on a consistent basis. This is a marketing ploy that makes the buyer believe they are getting more for their money. For example, they may be paying $80 a month for television; however, they are receiving over 100 channels!

    This sounds fantastic, but the fact is the average person only watches approximately 4 - 6 different channels. This means they are truly paying over $80 for 4 television channels, which is an absolute outrage.

    With Clear TV, it is true, you will NOT receive 100s of Channels. However, it is likely that you will receive some of your most desired networks.

    If you enjoy the thought of knowing you have 100 channels that you can flip through, then this device is not for you and you'd be better off sticking with your current service provider.

  • Its FREE!

    After your original investment, to buy the antenna, you will never receive a bill for your television service. It's true, as pointed out in the commercial, this could save you thousands of dollars; IF you are satisfied with Clear TV.

  • Clearer Than Cable

    This claim sounds impossible, but its true in some cases. If you do not have HD cable service, then you are likely receiving a compressed version of the broadcast. When you use an HD antenna, if the network is broadcasting in HD, your reception of their television programs will be in High Definition.

  • Ultra Thin

    While there are dozens of equal or better antennas available, the Clear TV is the thinnest antenna we were able to find. This allows you to position it in more places than it's bulky competitors.

Cons

  • It's just an Antenna

    If you were hoping for a revolutionary new way of getting free TV, then you will be disappointed. The Clear TV Digital HD Antenna, is just as the name states, and antenna. There are other antennas which you could purchase locally that would work just as good if not better.

  • 0 Channels

    There is a possibility that you will receive no channels at all. The way all antennas work is by intercepting airwave broadcasts in the area. If you live far from any sign of civilization, then chances are you will not pick up any channels. This of this as a very powerful 'rabbit ear antenna'. The closer you are to the broad cast towers, the more channels you will get and the clearer your reception will be.

  • Outdoor Antennas Are Better

    When you position an antenna within a building you decrease the signal catching properties. Further, if you wish to use this device in a basement, you can expect a diminished product. Anything that can cause interference between the broad casted signal and your antenna will decrease the amount of clear channels you receive.

  • Quality

    You get what you pay for. There have been multiple reports of users who have had different parts of the product fail on them. Jarin from NY had his amplifier quit working after 2 weeks. Ref 20 Nov 2014 Review.
    This is not to say that it is cheaply constructed; however, keep in mind you are paying $19.95 for something, you shouldn't expect it to last a life time. Other customers have reported using theirs for over 1 year with no problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Does it Work?

    - Yes & No. It works great for some, average for others, and not at all for a few people. The device is legit; however, you must be within range of a television broadcasting tower. Be sure to read the customer reviews below.

  2. How Many Channels with Clear TV?

    - 0 to 50. In 2013, the advertising suggested that you could receive hundreds of channels. This has since been removed from their claims.

    - A few lucky customers have received 50 channels (some of which are non-english).

    - On average, people report that the clear TV allows them to receive between 10 and 20 channels.

    - You'll notice that a vast majority of people who post reviews report getting between 0 and 5 channels (no better than an old fashion antenna)

  3. Why so Many Negative Reviews?

    - When people are happy, or content, with a product they don't usually rush to post a review. When a person is upset that an item doesn't work as expected, they are more likely to submit a review; thus you will always find more negative than positive reviews. Keep in mind, if 1,000,000 units are sold, and there are only 100 negative reviews, that means there must be a lot of silent, satisfied customers.

  4. Will it Replace Cable or Satellite?

    - No! Antenna television is ideal for people wishing to save money. It is not a replacement for cable or satellite TV, unless you are not a avid TV watcher.

What the Infomercial Says

The Infomercial claims that Clear TV can bring you free broadcast of your favorite television shows that can look as good as cable or even better than satellite broadcasts. There are no contracts, no monthly fees and no rate increases. Instead of paying an average of $80 per month for a basic cable and satellite subscription, just use the digital antenna to enjoy and watch your favorite broadcast network shows free of charge. Stop paying hundreds of dollars for extra channels that you may not even watch. With Clear TV, you can instantly receive top-rated network shows, local news and weather broadcasts as well as sporting events. Just plug in the device and you're ready to watch free shows in your living room, or anywhere you have a TV. This is completely legal too with government mandating a law that all broadcasters are required to transmit digital TV signals through the airwaves. Clear TV picks up these signals and brings it directly to your television.

No Premium Channels

(Ex. HBO, The History Channel, The Discovery Channel, A&E, TBS, etc.)

Clear TV is only able to receive free HD broadcast network channels such as NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, PBS, The CW etc.

Premium channels are never broadcasted freely over airwaves.

How Many Channels You'll Receive

If you are not within approximately 30 miles of a broadcast tower, you run the risk of not being able to receive any channels.

Here's Help: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has posted a web app, that allows you to type in your ZIP code to determine where Digital TV signals are near your location here: Digital TV Reception Map
This app is not without error. There are instances where the FCC service my state that you are highly likely to receive a signal; however, you won't be able to du to interference or terrain.

Conclusion

The Clear TV antenna will work if you are within 25 miles of a broadcast tower, granted there is no interference. It is not a substitute for cable or satellite TV; as you will not receive all the same channels. It only picks up Broadcast Network Channels. The two most popular concerns with this product are poor customer service, and users reporting it as being only slightly more effective than a traditional lower priced antenna.

Our recommendation: Read our full report and know what you are getting before you decide to buy.
Alternatives can be found at Wal-Mart.

I buy this Clear Tv, when I call told I was sending it back for refund, the told me we will give $7.00 and you can keep them. I said no I want my $35.95 I pay them, so he said I can only give you $19.95 back, we don't give back shipping and handling costs back, I was mad because I pay for the shipping and handling, so I am losing $15.98 of my money. So do not buy from, it is a ripped off.

If you already get 50 Channels with a Walmart antenna, why would you even want to try this? Sounds fishy.

It Works. for the Seller

March 12 / 2015: This product works for the seller. Ordered the antenna with the special deal of getting an extra one for the price of one. You only have to pay shipping and handling for the additional antenna, Total price including tax $38.21.
Antenna arrived and it was tried in every room in the apt and it didn't work for me, I was only able to get 5 channels after performing a channel scanning. ( I live approximately 25 miles from nyc ). Decided to return it and get a RA first. The rep tells me that I will only get $7.00 as credit and I can keep the items instead of returning it. I told her that I will mail the package back to them. Total credit refund will be $19.95. So, this item works real good for the seller, they make a profit just on the shipping and handling without the antenna ever working. Don't try it unless they promise full refund including shipping and handling.

Horrible Service & Waste of Time

I purchased this product 01/03/15 checked the status of & eta 01/15/15 I called customer service ( if you can’t stand a heavy accent I recommend finding someone with a high amount of patience & stupidity tolerance to call ) was told that it "should arrive within 4 days" I asked if it does not will I receive a full refund & the best they offered me on a $35.93 order was $7.50 & "they could not offer any more than that" I received my package 01/27/15 I set up the system with the instruction manual provided. In the manual it stated you won’t receive more channels than basic cable but on the ad & before you order by phone it states you will receive thousands of new channels depending on your location. I called 01/29/15 received the worst service ever. I was connected to a representative with a Jamaican accent & received crappy assistance. She stated I can’t get my shipping fee back which I paid nearly $16 for & I would have to pay to return the damn product! I asked to speak with a manager & I was placed on hold. 2nd rep tried to speak without an accent Once I started asking questions she lost control & began to sound like the first rep. At least this time the 2nd rep told me I need a ra# (its your order number) She informed me that if I brought the package to the post office (not FedEx) I don’t need to pay shipping. I asked why the last rep said otherwise, avoided all questions I had & blamed me for my location. Point of this is that clear TV has found a country with much poverty willing to take any job possible to provide economic stability & being used by a wealthier company to provide cheap labor with cheap labor you get cheap service.

Some people will buy anything and some don't even give a damn if it was a wise choice or not. This is for the working man, WalMart sells a digital antenna for less than ten bucks. I have two they work beautifully.

I have something to say!

I have paid for cable before and there were days when the service just wasn't working because they were working on it to get it up and running. It was so frustrating. I asked the rep if I would pro rated for the days it wasn't working. I was told no lol I said the customer is always right! Right? No we're very sorry ma'am as soon as it gets fixed your service will be restored. So, I quit that company and made myself a antenna for analog and received abc, nbc, cbs, 2 fox channels and 1 wbg in chicago and I live in a valley in washington not by any broadcasting networks. Those were the days : ) now I have a TV that gets digital signal with no antenna at all. But some days nothing will come in. Its ok it's free! And I see more TV than I had with cable. My TV is a toshiba and I used the remote to scan for channels and got 12 channels free. I'm a happy camper.

I purchased a HD antenna from ebay and I do receive at least 20 Channels , I do have rotor on it so I can get more if I turn the antenna to another direction . I live in NE Pa I pick up all Philly,Harrisburg ,Wilkes Barre stations as well as my local Allentown station. It was the best investment I have made in a long time. The antenna flat about 30inches high about 40 inches wide has 2 flat elements with bow tie on each side . I think it was about $50, Check it out on Ebay!!
