  • You can take it anywhere and watch TV where ever you like. It's advisable that you use your rooftop antenna with these products. If you are in an area that has good strong reception you may get away with a set of rabbits ears type antenna.

    These tuners are not a "full-blown" tuner so it may not perform as well as one in terms of picking up reception. I'm in Summer Hill Sydney and I had a trouble trying to receive consistent reception using both internal and external antennas, even with a signal booster.

    I tried 2 of these and had to take them back in the end for a refund. Thankfully Apple staff were helpful and gave me a refund no problems.
