Introduction: Flat Panel HDTV Antenna

About: We love instructables. We make and tear up and improve and sometimes destroy. Some of this are instructions for use of our products. Some of this is us sharing ideas we have for how to make awesome things.

This guide will tell you everything you need to know about how to
assemble and install your Flat Panel HDTV Antenna from FoxSmart.

Step 1: Unbox and Identify Components

Remove all components from the box. You should have the following (clockwise from the top):

  • Antenna (1)
  • Double-sided tape (4)
  • Stand

Step 2: Stand

After unboxing your antenna and components, unwrap the stand and position antenna into the grooves.

Note: if desired, our antenna can also be used as the perfect finishing touch on your Tron Man costume.

Step 3: Connect Coax Cable to TV

Plug the AC adapter into your wall outlet. Plug the coax cable into the 'video in' or 'antenna in' port on your TV.

Step 4: Scan for Channels

Once installed, turn your TV on. Go into your TV's 'settings' menu, then select the 'scan for channels' option. It may take several minutes for your TV to scan for all available channels. Once completed, you should have access to local broadcasting stations like CBS, NBC, OETA, etc. Check FCC.gov for a full list of channels available in your area.

Congratulations! Now you have access to free local TV channels.

Step 5: ...wait, Free TV?

Yes. Now that you've installed your antenna, you've taken the first step toward a life without cable bills and 6 hour tech appointment windows. Complete the process by picking up a streaming media player (we like Apple TV or Roku) and a subscription to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Crackle, and other streaming services. Think of your friends at FoxSmart as you enjoy your $1000+ annual savings after you've cut your cable. We hope you're enjoying your free TV as much as this family is.
