    Anyone (UK) got one. Does it work ? Is this all snake oil. Reception ?
    Most importantly, is it tied up with your computer in some way ? Ie, do you 'stream'. Their bumpf talks about receiving "signals from the tower", but surely, the signals from my nearest tower are all the BBC/ITV 'type'. No Sky type channels (pick any one), come from a tower......
    Any comments please.
    I use a kodi, I use mobdro, but still retain Sky as it is instant/dependable/easy, ie no fiddling around/waiting for downloads, pick a streaming source, programme not the same as in the paper.
    Thanks

    As it is designed for US TV transmission then I doubt it works in he UK. All the advertising is aimed at the American market. I cant find anything about UK use.

    Even if it did it would only pick up freeview channels.

    It's snake oil... This 'antenna' aka aerial is just the same as any of the amplified room aerials by SLX and One for All and others. It'll only work in strong signal areas where a bit of wire poked in the aerial socket would work nearly as well.

    It is - of course - only suitable for terrestrial broadcasts, not satellite.

    The website changes currency and flag based on where the interrogating IP address is sited - so UK IPs get the union jack and £s.
