Don’t have cable and have been missing local news and some of your fave live sporting events? Guess what? You can still access broadcast TV channels like NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox and PBS — they're completely free. The catch: You need an antenna, and not a pair of those prehistoric "rabbit ears," neither. 

Well, we're here to help. Enter the Antop AT-420B AT-500SBS Smart Bar HDTV & FM Television Antenna, a reliable digital powerhouse that'll grab all the free TV channels broadcasting wafting around your home. And it comes with a slew of accessories, all for the sale price for $80, or $110 off (if purchased separately), at QVC.

The bundle also includes a power booster, an adapter, three coaxial cables, FM antenna adapters, a mounting kit and loads of subscription services (listed below). Plus, you get free shipping!

And if you’d rather not pay $80 at once (understandable), QVC lets you opt for five 'Easy Pays' of just $16, with no interest at all.

Over-the-air TV channels

The Antop Smart Bar (available in Titanium and White) has a wide 80-mile range — which is farther than most digital TV antennas — and it supports Full HD resolutions at 1080p. So whether you have an older TV or a newer 4K set, this digital TV antenna (which can also be placed in vertical and horizontal positions) will give you the best possible over-the-air picture quality. See it in action in QVC's demonstrations video here, and see how many TV channels are available in your area here.

"The panel antenna I currently use picked up about 35 channels, all the higher-numbered channels," shared a delighted five-star reviewer. Then the Antop rocked, and expanded, his world: "...On the low setting the TV scanned 44 channels. Not bad, so I turned it up to medium and scanned 52 channels. Much better. Then at max I scanned 56. Wow, that's pretty good! Some of the channels where a little pixelated, so I tried to move around the antenna and found it worked better for me when horizontal. So I set it up in the window in a horizontal position, scanned it again and got 59 channels. What?! That's just amazing!"

No static at all...

This durable digital TV antenna is so powerful that it has its own power source; that's how it can pick up such far-flung channels. Its range is multi-directional with no 'blind spots' that weaken signal strength. It even blocks unwanted signals, so phone and radio waves won’t interfere with your picture quality either. Speaking of radio waves: The Antop Smart Bar bundle includes an FM antenna that you can wire into your home stereo. See it in action here.

"This is an awesome antenna, it's HD digital and the picture quality is really nice and bright," raved a satisfied QVC shopper.
