If you want to stop paying your cable company $100/month for channels you don’t watch, it might be time to cut the cord. Between services like Netflix, Hulu+, Sling TV, and HBO Now, it’s easier than ever to declare cable independence, but a good antenna is still a critical piece of equipment for picking up your local broadcast stations.
Update 2: Back in stock!
Today on Amazon, refurbs of the Mohu Leaf are down to $15, which is by far the lowest price we’ve ever seen. If you need an endorsement, note that Lifehacker readers voted the Leaf as their favorite antenna, praising its unobtrusive design and great performance.
Even if you’re totally happy with your cable package, it might be worth picking this thing up anyway for football season. Unlike cable broadcasts, OTA HDTV is uncompressed, which means your programs will be free of the artifacts you can see during fast action scenes. It might not make a huge difference, but it’s definitely noticeable in my experience, particularly for sports. and $15 is a steal if you want the best image quality possible. [Refurb Mohu Leaf, $15]
