4K TV antenna.

4k TV Antenna

Truly, another antenna scam. There's no such thing as a 4k TV antenna!

Several years ago, I wrote a page explaining, there's no such thing as an HDTV antenna. The page is called "HDTV Antenna Fact or Fiction". Still, thousands of consumers buy antennas claiming to be HDTV antennas replacing perfectly good antennas that don't need replaced. The same is true with 4K TV antennas. There's no such thing as a 4K TV antenna.

Pay no attention to any reference claiming the antenna is designed for better 4k TV reception performance.

Bottom line, there's no such thing as a 4k TV antenna. Any TV antenna that claims to perform better because it's a 4k TV antenna is a scam. 

No such thing as a 4K TV antenna

There's no such thing as an HDTV or a 4K TV antenna. Huh? Which kind of antenna? If you have a PhD in electrical engineering and have never heard about the antenna type called "HDTV antenna," it's not because you were a bad student. HDTV antenna or 4K antenna has nothing to do with physics and engineering. It was invented in marketing departments.

The good news! 4K TV promises more channels, better signal quality, and support for 4K video. The FCC gives 4K, next-gen TV the green light. Expect 4K to offer better reception and new services and features. Free, over-the-air TV is going to get even better. .

I found the following misleading statements: Not one of the statements below are true, 

  • 4K TV Antennas at Amazon
  • 4k TV Antenna—Best Buy
  • Boost Your 4K Viewing with an HDTV Antenna
  • The 10 Best TV Antennas for 4K TV Viewing
  • 4K TV Antennas—Ultra HD Ready
  • The Best Indoor HDTV Antennas for HD and 4K
  • Best Omnidirectional 4K Outdoor TV Antenna
  • 4K TV Antennas at Target
  • LAVA HD8008 Ultra 4K Omni-Directional Amplified Outdoor
