1Byone TV Antenna Review

Expert Rating

Anyone looking for an amplified antenna will discover that the 1Byone antenna comes with everything necessary. Although it may not come with the most top-end or the most consistent signal strength, it still easily qualifies as the best TV antenna because of its large selection of channels and long coaxial cable.

Why We Like It – 1Byone TV Antenna

You may be thinking that the days of T.V. antennas to be long gone, but they’re not. Introducing a new HDTV antenna, the 1Byone TV Antenna. The indoor HDTV Antenna can get you a television signal from 50 miles away, and is, curiously, very good at picking up retro television stations. Compare this with our DB8E ultra-long-range outdoor DTV antenna review if you’re not sure about the Byone. Fans of retro T.V will have no problems with this one.

Pros
  • Large Mile Range
  • Ten Foot Coaxial Cable
  • Very Affordable Price
Cons
  • Shaky Signal Reception
  • No Dedicated Smartphone App

Performance

The 1Byone TV Antenna may not have the best reception, but it still gets better reception compared to its competition. It’s rated to receive signals from a 50 mile range. The indoor T.V. antenna receives many UHF/VHF local channels like CBS and NBC, and many channels more such as game-show channels and retro T.V. channels. If you want a larger mile range, we suggest the Vansky Outdoor 150 Mile Motorized 360 Degree Rotation OTA Amplified HDTV Antenna. The 1Byone isn’t affected much by weather conditions, which is a plus, but also means it doesn’t produce the best signal because of quality-assurance reasons which is a tad troubling.

Design

The 1Byone is flat, black, 13.25”x9.25” and can be stuck on a wall or window with the included adhesive pads. The TV antenna comes with a ten foot coaxial cable which should make it easy to move around the room for better signal quality. There’s also a five foot long USB cable to connect to the USB port on the amplifier and a USB adapter. Many indoor HDTV antennas omit this feature, so it’s nice to see it included. If you’re looking for an outdoor antenna, the RCA Outdoor Yagi Satellite HD Antenna can’t be beat.

Value

At the very least, it’s a load off your mind not to have to worry about picture quality. An antenna can only get you the channels, it can’t make them look better for you. Priced at an affordable $20.00, it’s worth a shot picking up and testing out to see if an indoor HDTV antenna is right for you. All 1Byone products come with a hassle-free warranty too, according to the website, which also helps in diminishing your fears. One thing the 1Byone does not have is a dedicated smartphone app, which the Winegard FL5500A FlatWave Amped Digital HD Indoor Amplified TV Antenna does.

1Byone Wrap Up

The 1Byone TV Antenna will serve its purpose if you decide to pick one up. It has shaky performance, to be sure, but it includes many additional features that most other HDTV Antennas don’t like: a USB Port and a larger than life coaxial cable. Plus, the channels it does send to your TV, when the signal is strong, are plentiful and varied.
