{CLOSED!} Mohu Twin-Pack Leaf Antenna – Win Giveaways

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 12, 2012

We don’t do cable. I haven’t had  cable since I lived at home before leaving for college. And to tell you the truth, I don’t mind not having it. We catch things on Hulu, many of the sports my husband likes to watch he can find online or on the iPad. And we do have Netflix for the kids to watch cartoons. All in all, this set up is way cheaper than cable would be. We’ve always used “rabbit ears” for picking up the major networks…but now there’s a new alternative called “The Leaf.” And according to recent test drives, it is the best performing indoor antenna on the market.

The Leaf is a simple device that you plug into the back of your TV and it picks up any TV stations that are broadcasting a signal within 30-35 miles. The Leaf picks up the signal and displays it on your TV – in HD! The Leaf costs $50 (or $40 on Amazon), so if your basic cable bill is $20 a month, you’ll make your money back in three months! In addition to pulling in major networks, it has “omnidirectional” reception (meaning that it should ideally pull in stations from all directions, so if you live smack dab in the middle of 2 cities, you could pull from both cities.)

The Leaf is paper-thin and can be easily hidden behind a picture frame, cabinet or bookshelf without affecting reception, or behind your TV. It powers itself from the TV power, so no additional power cord to wrap up. The set up is super simple and it has adhesive to attach to whatever it is you want to attach it to, using either the white side or the black side. It’s very much a “plug n play” kind of tool that will allow you to pick up stations in minutes!

This week, we’re giving away a twin-pack of Mohu’s Leaf to 2 different winners!

I have amazon prime for the shipping savings, and that allows us to stream movies and shows, betwen that and Netflix we don’t really need cable!

I wait until movies are out on redbox so I can rent them for only a dollar instead of the higher on demand prices

Love it! I really want to cancel cable, but without it we would not get our local stations. Right now we do watch more Netflix than anything else, though! Love being able to watch tons of different things without having to get off the couch. :-P

My wife and I hook up her laptop to our TV using an HDMI cable and watch Hulu and YouTube videos that way instead of paying too much for cable.

I never have had cable! I only get CBS right now so would love something like this to see if I could pull in more stations.

We get into good deals for cable….jump on it when it’s low in price for year. We have switched if needed. We also use the coupon codes to get free movies from Redbox.

We use Amazon Prime for movies and Hulu for tv shows. This sounds amazing, though!

Kelly November 12, 2012 at 2:59 pm

We try and cut back during the summer and do without cable. Then, we re-up around Fall Sweeps and keep it going through the Spring. There is normally a great deal on new connections in the fall so we save a little bit of money and get a new customer deal.

My best tip is to cancel cable, order netflix and enjoy time watching shows with no commercials!

Amer Mall November 12, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Cancel cable and wait for shows on studio’s website. Or watch free educational content on via iTunes University or some awesome HD podcasts.

For so many years, we didn’t have any cable, but we could at least get the basic stations… I’m pretty sure the stations all weakened their signals though because suddenly we couldn’t get any network TV! So we do have cable, but we go for the most limited basic package… You have to keep talking them down when they try to sell you the “basic” package; go for limited basic !

Emily H. November 12, 2012 at 5:15 pm

To save money, I watch things streaming on Netflix or Hulu, but it *would* be nice sometimes to watch things live!

I have amazon prime for instant videos, netflix for streaming/dvd and hulu/hulu plus, both work pretty well. And don’t cost as much as having 5 billion channels on cable. :)

No cable for the last 10 years been great.

Kristy Boyd November 12, 2012 at 8:36 pm

We just cancelled our cable last week and are enjoying broadcast for free! It just wasn’t worth it to pay anymore. We haven’t gotten Netflix or Hulu Plus yet. Waiting to see if we want to yet.

We use Roku with PlayOn to cut the cable bill. I still have local channels through TWC though, would be nice to dump that. :)

I use the library to get seasons of shows and movies.. If they don’t have it at the local library, they send out all over thue state until they find it.

Sandy Lacey November 12, 2012 at 8:43 pm

I have Amazon Prime under a student account for $39 a year which gives us unlimited streaming. We have Netflix which runs $7.99 a month and we use RedBox and BlockBuster kiosks for movies. I often do a search for coupon codes and end up getting my movies for free each night, even if they aren’t if you reserve online before pick up it’s slightly cheaper at $1 a night instead of $1.20.
