Mohu has released a new HDTV antenna called the Mohu Striker, and it’s one of the largest antennas around. The Striker has a 75 mile radius and is designed to be used outdoors. The size, the included mounting kit, and the 30-foot coaxial cable, means you’ll have a lot of options on where you want to place it. The way it screws to the side of wherever you live will make it seem like just another part of the home.
Like other modern HDTV antennas, it is multi-directional and doesn’t require you to point it in any particular direction. However, if you don’t live in a very urban area you might want to check out this site to make sure it’s worth the investment. The 75 mile range is pretty extreme, so chances are even if it’s not perfect you will still get at least a few channels from local towers. Ideally, you’ll be able to pick up free HD versions of all the major networks, including ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, The CW, and more.
Mohu is no stranger to the world of HDTV antennas, either. The Mohu Leaf 50 used to be one of CordCutter’s top picks for best over-the-air antennas, and right now the Mohu Blade gets the nod for most stylish.
You could also pair an antenna like this with something like the HDHomeRun Connect tuner. You’re just forgetting all about cable subscriptions with a setup like this, since the HDHomeRun Connect devices let you take all the channels your antenna is picking up and broadcast them to your favorite mobile devices.
The Striker is currently going for $129.99 on Mohu’s website, and it will be available on Amazon soon enough as well. There isn’t a lot of competition in the 75-mile antenna range, but if you’re working on a budget the ClearStream 2MAX has a 60-mile range and is only $50. And if budget is a bigger issue than range, try the AmazonBasics 50-mile antenna for just $28.
