{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!

My husband and I haven’t paid for cable in years. We have hulu and netflix and watch many shows on the network websites. We rarely miss any show we want to watch and save about $60/mo.

We save on cable/satellite bills by using Netflix and Crackle, and by borrowing movies from our local library.

Bets tip : Don’t pay for cable/movie subscriptions. I have saved SO much money without cable/etc for 3 years+ Almost ANY show can be found online for free….who knew most major networks give the shows away for free on their websites? I also use the library for movies. The kid’s miss t.v & are all avid readers ! However *I* would LOVE this prize, as we do not get reception without, and my old antenna just doesn’t cut it!

We stick with basic cable and that saves a lot.
And after football season, we’re considering going without cable.

We just use over-the-air tv. We stream a few things from Hulu and since we just have really little kids, we love the pbs kids website! Tons of videos on there for free!

We still have a VCR! It’s REALLY REALLY easy to find cheap kids programming on VHS. The thrift store around the corner charges $0.50 each and when you buy two, you get two free. Can’t beat that! Thanks for hosting!
