About Mohu Leaf HDTV Antenna

Made in the USA, the Mohu Leaf HDTV antenna can be installed just about anywhere, and allows you to watch free, local, and public HDTV channels in your area. The Leaf is modeled after an incredibly thin military mudflap antenna design, and at just 9 inches by 11.5 inches, it can be mounted on the wall, behind a picture, or just about anywhere else. The Mohu Leaf includes a 10-foot detachable coaxial cable, giving you more than enough room to find just the right placement. In addition, the antenna is black on one side and white on the other—and is even paintable—allowing it to seamlessly mesh with your home’s existing décor.

From a reception standpoint, the Mohu Leaf is optimized for UHF stations. This means that you can also tune in to VHF and Hi-V stations, but will not receiving them from as far away as you would with UHF-band stations.

As a spinoff of Greenwave Scientific, the engineers at Mohu help transform defense-based military technology into “common sense consumer electronics.” Their mission is to “deliver simple, intuitive, game-changing products that enrich the lives of [their] customers.” The Mohu Leaf has been featured on many prestigious news outlets, including CNET, CNBC, Fox News, Lifehacker, and NBC News.

What is Free HDTV?

As of 2009, all major television networks and local broadcasters in every U.S. city were required to transmit their content digitally in HDTV, and completely free of charge. These signals are sent over the air, which means that no cable or satellite service is required—only a high-quality HDTV antenna such as the Mohu Leaf.

Think of it this way: Instead of broadcasting an analog signal, as we’ve been doing for more than 60 years, stations are now broadcasting digitally, which is carried from towers and received by antennas. Using an antenna to “catch” this signal is just as legal as using the traditional, unsightly “rabbit ears.”

Mohu Leaf Pricing, Shipping, Return Policy, & Warranty

The Mohu Leaf comes in three different models, depending on your needs. These are:

  • Mohu Leaf Indoor HDTV Antenna – 35-mile range: $39.99.
  • Mohu Leaf Ultimate Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna – 50-mile range: $89.99.
  • Mohu Sky Outdoor / Attic HDTV Antenna – 60-mile range: $169.99.

If you’re unsure of your range requirements, you can plug in your zip code on the Mohu site, which will make a suggestion based on the broadcasting station distances in your area.

The Mohu Leaf comes with a one-year manufacturer warranty, and free shipping throughout the continental U.S., which can also be sent via UPS Ground, Next Day, and 2nd Day Air for faster service. If you’re unsatisfied with your purchase, the manufacturer provides a 30-day money back guarantee, which encompasses a full refund, minus shipping and handling fees.

It’s important to note that, while the Mohu Leaf is available through Amazon as well, you’ll need to purchase it directly through the manufacturer’s website in order to receive the money back guarantee.

Mohu Leaf TV Set Considerations

If you have an older, standard-definition television, you can still use the Mohu Leaf, but you will require a separate digital converter box. However, any HD programming you receive will be displayed in SD quality.

If you have a newer-generation flat screen TV, make sure it is digital-ready, which can be accomplished by checking your TV’s manual to see if it supports ATSC tuning.

Pros:

  • Before making your purchase, you can check the manufacturer’s website to verify the Leaf will work for you.
  • Easy to install, and can be mounted virtually anywhere.
  • Made in the USA.
  • 30-day money back guarantee, though you will be responsible for return shipping charges.
  • One-year parts and labor warranty.
  • All models come with a coaxial cable and Velcro tabs in order to mount the antenna on your wall.
  • One-time purchase, without additional monthly cable fees.
  • Free over-the-air programming access for networks such as NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox (varies by location).

Cons:

  • The Mohu Leaf might ruin your décor. Imagine a black or white rectangle in the middle of your wall, with a coaxial cable dangling from it.

    The cable cutter's best friend.

    • NC,
    • Nov 11, 2016

    We have purchased 3 Mohu products. 2 Leaf 50-mile antennas and 1 of the Air60 units. We now receive 44 channels, crystal clear, on the Leaf units and 53 on the Air60. Air60 in our attic and Leaf in the garage and a 3rd floor room without cable box so can't use the Air60 there.

    Remarkable, no better way to describe it. Better, clearer picture than what Time Warner provided. Promise, you will not regret this purchase. Only need the Air60 to feed your outdoor cable box and it will serve the entire house, where you have cable connections.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Absolute nightmare

    Ok I live in downtown Brooklyn right near the east river. Bought this thing. I live in an apartment building. From day one I have to reposition this antenna every single day and then rescan to get signals for local channels. For example channel 2 (CBS), I'll get a signal maybe for a few hours, maybe for 30 minutes then "no signal ". I have to circle around my room constantly sometimes to get nothing. I have had this thing for about 5 months and I have not had one day of uninterrupted signals without having to reposition. I bought this thing because of reviews. I am sorry but the Mohu Leaf is crap.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Perfect

    • Annandale, VA,
    • Sep 4, 2016

    I have tried numerous digital antennas. They have been cumbersome, unsightly and frustratingly unpredictable, sometimes requiring constant tweaking of position or worse. I purchased the amplified version of the Mohu Leaf antenna through Groupon several years ago. I don't even know how many stations I get, far more than ever before. I get stations I didn't know existed. Reception is clearer than I have ever gotten before. I have only had to adjust the position of the antenna (slightly) a couple of times during this whole time.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Across the mountain!

    • Maynardville, TN,
    • Mar 18, 2016

    Bought this mohu leaf today at Walmart. It is the 60 mile range with an amplified signal. I live north of Knoxville, TN in all mountainous country. This Mohu leaf works well, I am picking up all 17 stations that are in a 30 mile range. Images are crystal clear. I have the Leaf set up in front of the window facing south over the mountain towards Knoxville. It does exactly as advertised, and very easy to set up. If you are expecting miracles, better pray instead of buying this antenna, but if you have reasonable expectations, it will work!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Not Bad

    • Clay, MI,
    • Jul 13, 2015

    We got the Mohu that is for a 60 mile radius from Walmart. If positioned correctly on a wall, we can stretch the limit. We get NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS; usually a total of 14 + DTV stations. We have a lot of trees but in spite of this, get decent reception. Depending on the weather the reception might be spotty but for the most part we are pleased with the $70 savings a month on cable. We also tried the Winegard​ Flat Antenna but the Mohu worked better for us.

    Not worth the cost of packaging

    • Oklahoma,
    • Jul 1, 2015

    I bought two of these, one to replace a little Philips indoor/outdoor antenna and the other to replace a set of rabbit ears. After trying numerous locations and positions on both TV sets, I put them back in the box and they are now sitting in my closet. The Philips antenna and the rabbit ears are far superior. Don't get pulled in by all of the hype. The Mohu Leaf isn't worth the price of the box it was sent in. Both of mine are for sale cheap, along with the ocean front property in Arizona that I own.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Why don't you return them for a refund?

    Perfect for Those Avoiding Cable

    • Wausau, WI,
    • Jun 23, 2015

    I just moved up to Wausau, WI and right off the bat had issues with the local cable company due to their failure to deliver decent service concerning my internet. So when I came around to finally acquiring a TV, I decided to go without Cable. I bought a Leaf and it has performed quite nicely.

    At the moment I am getting 16 1080p channels, all coming in crystal clear. I have it mounted about 5 ft up on an exterior wall with a picture hanging over it, and I bought the version with a signal boost to help with my middle-of-nowhere location.

    I would highly recommend it to anybody who is looking for a digital antenna for a HDTV, without a doubt.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
