What customers say about "Key Specs"
Antennas Direct ClearStream 4 (C4-CJM) Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna with Mount
  • Reception is very clear and trouble-free.
  • Considering the build quality, and phenominal reception, definitely a great alternative to satellite or cable.
  • Excellent range for most metro areas.
  • Im running two 4k tv's with this antenna in my attic. I get all great pictures.
  • The HD reception is perfect, along with all the subchannels, many of which are not on cable.
  • But beware - does very well with all UHF and lower VHF frequencies, but absolutely would not pick up higher VHF signals for me, and both Channels 11 & 13 are household requisites. So I still have to use an older VHF antenna to pick up those channels.
Antennas Direct ClearStream 5 (C5) High Gain VHF TV Antenna
  • I live 22-23 miles from the tower behind 2 mountain ranges. 25ft off the ground, even when aimed at the tower on Mt Wilson, it receive good signal.
  • I got the CS5 because it calmed to be able to receive high-VHF and UHF frequencies at long ranges.
  • I needed an Antenna that could do both VHF and UHF in the right range. The C5 does both VHF and UHF.
  • The signal strength is 60+ on all channels. It works perfectly. I have perfect reception on all channels in range.
  • Even though it's targeted for VHF, we also get UHF stations. I highly recommend this antenna.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"

  • Reasonable size. All necessary hardware was included, including mounting lag bolts.
  • It's an excellent size, looking like any other Satellite dish attached to a house in the neighborhood.
  • Arrived fast, was easy to assemble, the size was just right, I am attaching this to a short pole in my attic.
  • The compact size and futuristic looking.
  • Its small size is within the range that permits mounting outdoors.
Antennas Direct ClearStream 5 (C5) High Gain VHF TV Antenna
  • The 7.6 dBi gain of this antenna, given the compact size is impressive.
  • I get both VHF and UHF channels with a single compact antenna and am very happy that I don't have a huge contraption in my attic which I also use for storage.
  • Assembly and installation didn't take that much time at all since this is a very nice and compact design and is not bulky to handle.
  • This compact unit is aesthetically appealing with a good WAF and is very neighbor-friendly.
  • I chose this model because of it's compact design since I don't have room for a large antenna on my roof.

What customers say about "Features"
Antennas Direct ClearStream 4 (C4-CJM) Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna with Mount
  • This antenna is really for outside placement. Using this antenna outside you will not be dissatisfied.
  • I did a channel search, and picked up over 40 channels.
  • This antenna is great. All of the channels come in great. CBS looks just as good as the other channel we get.
  • This does much better than expected. I live out in the county surrounded by trees. I was expecting to only get a few local channels for the news at best, but I get around 30+ HD channel. I have this place in the attic of my home pointed toward the city.
  • No matter which channel I went to, the picture was perfect. Instead of outdoors, I mounted it in the attic.
  • Pulls in signals from +60 miles. However the wingnuts needed to be tightened down with a pair of pliers to get the signal to come in. Additionally one station only comes in with daily manipulating of the black box that the coax connects to. Overall has been a real pain.
Antennas Direct ClearStream 5 (C5) High Gain VHF TV Antenna
  • It is easy to setup and Install. As long as you know where the towers in your area are.
  • The installation was very quick and easy and I had this up on my roof within 30 minutes.
  • I highly recommend trying that first if you think just one good outdoor or attic antenna would suit you.
  • We have lots of wind and rain, along with the occasional hurricane and this brand of antenna gets through all of it.
  • The clear stream c5 lets me see a station about 65 miles away.simple to assemble,watch it very high winds and rain,remained stable.
