Channel Master Flatenna 35 review: Cutting the cord has never been simpler

MSRP: $10.00

The Good The Channel Master Flatenna is a solid antenna at an incredibly low price. It outperforms more expensive designs in both the number of channels it can pick up and the strength of the signal.

The Bad The antenna has a short, non-replaceable cable. There are no fasteners included in the box.

The Bottom Line With its super simple design and strong performance the Channel Master Flatenna 35 is the ultimate gateway drug to cutting the cord.

If you've shopped for an indoor antenna in the past few years you've likely come across the Mohu Leaf. It's a flat square antenna you can bung up anywhere -- a window, wall or the side of an entertainment unit. Its simple design has spawned a crowd of imitators which, in the case of Channel Master Flatenna 35, is able to do a similar job for a lot less. At 10 bucks, the Flatenna a no-brainer.

Despite its on-the-nose "flatizza" name, the Channel Master is actually a likable piece of equipment. It's remarkably simple: a flexible sheet of plastic with a captive coaxial cable trailing from the bottom. The sheet itself is quite light, but add in the cable and it comes in at three ounces, while the antenna portion measures 13x9 inches.

Sadly, the coaxial cable is quite short at about six foot long, so if you need more length you'll need to spend another $10 on a male-female coaxial extension cable or adapter.

Unlike some of the competitors, there's no adhesives or fasteners in the box so you'll need some poster putty to attach it to a window or wall.
