Despite the somewhat high price tag, the Antennas Direct ClearStream 2Max absolutely deserves to sit among the Best TV Antenna options available in the market. This indoor outdoor antenna enjoys a pretty healthy performance boost over the cheaper 1Max model and might be considered for the title of best outdoor TV antenna at this price.

Why We Like It – Antennas Direct ClearStream 2Max

The Antennas Direct ClearStream 2Max is a new and future-proof HDTV antenna that delivers fantastic performance at an even better price point. It is a compact antenna that can be used both indoors and outdoors. And it is most definitely multi directional in nature.

  • It comes with a 20 inches mast
  • Adjustable mast clamp and base stand
  • Fantastic UHF VHF reception
  • It does not come with an included coaxial cable


The UHF VHF reception performance of this HDTV antenna is vastly superior compared to something like the RCA Yagi Outdoor TV Antenna. And at this price, it better be. The somewhat compact form factor does not affect the performance whatsoever.

Ease Of Install

Just like their own Antennas Direct ClearStream 4V HDTV antenna, this one also comes with pretty much all the mounting hardware necessary for the installation. And the whole installation is pretty straightforward too. But do note, you have to buy your own coaxial cable. You can opt for the Winegard Platinum HD7694P if you want a TV antenna that comes with a coaxial cable.


The durability of this multi directional indoor outdoor antenna and the included mounting hardware is very similar to that of the Channel Master Outdoor TV Antenna. That means it’s exceptionally good for the price it comes in at, and it should last for years.


It boasts 60 miles range for UHF VHF reception, and you do get that. When other brands are so busy putting in much higher numbers in terms of the coverage of their indoor outdoor antennas, this one truly sets itself apart by providing entirely correct info in the marketing materials.


Overall, the value proposition of this UHF VHF antenna is absolutely top-notch, as it is almost perfect in all the categories. Granted, unlike a lot of other UHF VHF TV antennas, it doesn’t come with an included coaxial cable. But, that can be a good thing for a lot of more advanced users too, as they can use pretty much any coaxial cables of their choice.

Antennas Direct ClearStream 2Max Wrap Up

The Antennas Direct ClearStream 2Max is a fantastic multi directional antenna that comes with all the necessary mounting hardware right inside the box. If you can afford it, you should go for it without a second thought.
