What customers say about "Key Specs"
Antennas Direct ClearStream 2V TV Antenna
  • This boasts a 60 mile range and I could not pick up even the 8 channels I get with my system now.
  • This is a good price for it's range to catch signals, and I was able to pull in most signals within the range though not all.
  • Long Range with this small antennae. The best of both worlds. Fits nicely on top of the roof without being intrusive.
  • The antenna did not improve my reception nor did it find more channels that were within the 60+ range that this antenna was said to capture.
  • I'm disappointed that the range on this is supposed to be 60+ miles and I'm well within the area for about 40 channels and I only get 4.
Antennas Direct ClearStream 2MAX TV Antenna
  • Its range is great, and it picks up signals at great distances in my 2 main direction I needed, nearly 180 degrees from each other.
  • This antenna gets great range and I love that it comes with a lifetime warranty as well! I believe that the company stands by its products!
  • This antenna, mounted in our attic, produces a much better signal, amplified, than the the ones we had stuck to our walls.
  • It has less range than the previous generation in UHF range.
  • There is no way this is capable of 60 mile range. I'm well within that range and in flat terrain. I was only able to get channels within 30.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Antennas Direct ClearStream 2V TV Antenna
  • It's a good size and blends in well enough with the exterior of the house.
  • This antenna has a relatively small size and was easy to mount under the eave of our house.
  • The one feature that I liked about it was its light weight and the adhesive that would allow you to restick it multiple times until you get the right position.
  • This antenna works great,it is easy to install and very light weight.
  • I would suggest for the manufacturer to add a hole so you can hang it on a screw or a command hook. I think it's just too heavy.
Antennas Direct ClearStream 2MAX TV Antenna
  • Technology with antennas have come a long way. Small and very strong.
  • This antenna is small and light which was a big plus when climbing up a 25 foot ladder.
  • Great size. A little more than my previous one, but I'm satisfied. It looks good on my roof.
  • Easy to install. Good size and weight. Solid antenna with heavy duty hardware. Works great, I was surprised how many stations in HD I was able to get.
  • Too light. It should be better fixed on the roof as it can very easily fall due to the wind.

What customers say about "Features"
Antennas Direct ClearStream 2V TV Antenna
  • Once I did that it ran amazing even without any form of amplification.
  • With amplification the best I could get was 9 channels and of those only ABC, Fox and PBS were channels we would ever watch.
  • The cable is separate, not built in, meaning less wear and tear and the option to use a different cable if you desire.
  • The one downside is the amplifier. It did not improve reception on any stations, and it distorted a few due to over-amplification.
  • The amplification was insufficient for use in a rural area about 60 miles away from the broadcast source.
Antennas Direct ClearStream 2MAX TV Antenna
  • I set this one up indoors and performed a channel scan and this antenna performed flawlessly and pulled in every station in my market area.
  • I used Digital TV Antennas APP from the play store while I was up on the roof, it worked great and is easy to use.
  • Followed the directions, downloaded the app to point the antenna and presto I got stations. Everything works great.
  • Used an IPhone app to find where to aim it and installed it in the attic. Tuned it in and it works very well.
  • The signals are already very strong, so additional amplification only makes things worse.
