My friend Rob is obsessed with aesthetics.
He lives near Los Angeles, but never switched to broadcast antenna television because he didn’t like how indoor antennas looked in his home. I can understand what he means. Most antennas are very well designed, but some homes have very specific colors and themes.
Rob’s place has matte colors and sort of a retro theme, which a shiny antenna may clash with.
Thankfully, Rob liked the look of a square leaf antenna. The square leaf is able to provide high quality HDTV, and has a nice and flat design. Its dark shade usually goes well with most color schemes.
The antenna is inexpensive. It is also incredibly versatile in terms of placement. Rob placed it on a wall, but it could also be laid on a flat surface.
I’m glad he finally cut off cable tv. Living near a broadcast city like Los Angeles gives him access to a lot of free and uncompressed television. Any good indoor antenna would provide him with plenty of content.
If you’re more like me, and don’t live as close to broadcast towers, outdoor antennas work just as well for longer distances. You can still enjoy the same quality of free HDTV thanks to signal amplification technology.
