Are you tired of paying expensive cable and satellite bills month after month?😩
You can now save thousands of dollars a year with Clear TV 😍
Clear TV™ Mini Premium HD 4K promises to help customers bypass cable and satellite companies and watch top-rated local shows, local news and weather, sporting events, and even crystal-clear 4K broadcast shows, without worrying about contracts, monthly fees, or price increases.
4K Pros: Picture Quality
Above, we discussed that digital OTA signals provide clearer images than analog ones since broadcasters can fit more information into them.
In a nutshell, 4K (also frequently referred to as Ultra HD, or UHD) is similar, since its signal contains more data—four times more, to be precise—than 1080p HD resolution, thereby creating a clearer picture on the viewer’s side.
Other Important 4K Considerations: TV Capabilities & Viewing Distance
Even if you had hundreds of 4K stations and broadcasts available for the Clear TV Premium HD Antenna to receive, you’d also need a screen capable of displaying the content.
Granted, the cost of 4K-capable TVs has come down a great deal over the past couple of years (we found models at national retailers for less than $150), but this is something you should add to your budget if it’s been a while since you upgraded your set.
Furthermore, even if your TV is appropriately equipped, CarltonBale.com indicates that your viewing distance can make all the difference when it comes to 4K.
For example, if you have a 90” screen, you’ll need to sit within about six feet to experience the full benefits. If your screen is smaller, you’ll need to sit closer. At the opposite end of the spectrum, the chart indicates you can still view the full benefits of 4K at up to about 17 feet away, but you’d need a 140” screen.

Which Channels do You Expect to Receive?
OTA digital antennas will not allow you to view premium cable-only content. This is something you can only get with a cable subscription, or via an aftermarket streaming service.
Specifically, antennas like Premium HD solely provide access to major network stations like CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, The CW, FOX, Univision, and so forth.
If you’re expecting to receive premium cable content from networks like HBO, Showtime, STARZ, Comedy Central, ESPN, MTV, FX, TNT, HGTV, and A&E (to name just a few), with an OTA antenna like Clear TV Premium HD, you will not receive additional premium content as Digital Antennas like Clear TV deliver signal to local network channels available in your region.
Will You Get Good Signal Quality?
A final consideration to keep in mind is that even with all of these components in place, the signal quality received by your indoor antenna can vary greatly depending on the distance to broadcast towers, as well as objects in between them and your antenna (hills, buildings, walls, etc.).
