Best over air HD antenna

I repositioned the antenna

Odds are there are dozens of HD channels broadcasting over the air in your area right now. If you're looking to cut the cable cord and save some money, all you need to view them is a decent OTA antenna. We asked you for your favorites last week, and then looked the five best OTA antennae. Now we're back to highlight the winner of our poll.

Taking the top spot far and away with over 53% of the overall vote was the Mohu Leaf; the paper-thin omnidirectional antenna that can be mounted anywhere, comes in amplified and unamplified versions, and has a solid track record of great reception.

In second place with close to 15% of the vote was the Clearstream 2, another Lifehacker favorite. A directional antenna with great range and indoor/outdoor capabilities, it's a worthwhile investment if you know the direction of the broadcasts you want to pick up. Third place goes to the Terk HDTVa with close to 14% of the votes cast, another directional model that's small enough to be used indoors. The Winegard Flatwave antenna, very similar to the Mohu Leaf, came in fourth place with close to 13% of the vote, and bringing up the rear was the most affordable antenna in the bunch, the RCA ANT1050, a $10 model that you can pick up if you want to see if anything is available in your area before investing in something more expensive.

For more on each of the contenders, as well as the honorable mentions and information about the best indoor antenna picks from our friends over at The Wirecutter, scroll down to the full Hive Five post for more.

The Hive Five is based on reader nominations. As with most Hive Five posts, if your favorite was left out, it didn't get the nominations required in the call for contenders post to make the top five. We understand it's a bit of a popularity contest. Have a suggestion for the Hive Five? Send us an email at!
