How to watch the Rose Parade 2024

Wait, a flat TV antenna? Aren’t these things supposed to have long, telescoping metal rods (aka rabbit ears)? Nope, this new design (which you’ll see in countless other brands) works just as well, and it’s not meant to sit atop your TV. Rather, you mount it on a wall or window using included sticky pads, with either the black or white side facing in to better match your décor.
The aptly named Flatenna really is flat like a piece of paper. You just screw one end of the 12-foot cord into the bottom and the other end into your TV’s coax input. (Yes, that does mean there’s an ugly cord running down your wall; consider a raceway kit like this to help conceal it.)
Channel Master promises range of up to 35 miles, but of course that depends on a variety of factors. As noted above, optimal placement — as high and unobstructed as possible — makes all the difference.
The big news here is price: At just $29, the Flatenna is quite affordable and a good place to start your antenna journey — assuming you’re OK with a black or white rectangle stuck to your wall or window.
