Skywire TV Antenna Review 2018 Update

The Cable Cutter Guy 5 years ago 96 5.5 K

Are you tired of paying never-ending bills for your cable and subscription fee? Well, you are not alone. In a world where every other thing demands a huge chunk of money, the least you can wish for is to not feel guilty about the overburdening bills when you watch TV. Television time is supposed to be your leisure time.

This is why you should think about switching to indoor TV antennas. By attaching an antenna to your TV, you will be able to cut down on all cable costs. If you are looking for a quality antenna, you might find Skywire TV Antenna to be an excellent option.

What is Skywire TV Antenna?

If you are clueless about antennas, don’t worry a you are far from being the only one. While the generation before us was well aware of this technology, millennials are not used to it. Therefore, you might find the idea of Skywire TV Antenna to be alien.

Skywire TV Antenna, as the name suggests, is a TV antenna that performs the same function as cable or satellite TV. The TV antenna is attached to a long thin cable. In the case of Skywire TV

Antenna, the cable is 10-foot long while the antenna itself is of 12 ounces. The antenna is placed either on the wall behind the TV or on the TV frame – the choice is yours.

SkyWireTV Unit Review

SkyWire TV Antenna works similarly to other indoor TV antennas. It has a multi-directional reception that allows it to provide its users with a vast range. This range is required to reach the broadcast towers. If the range does not suffice, an additional amplifier can be added to boost the range further.
Features of Skywire Antenna

Here are features that are included in the package:

  • A 30-mile signal range. This is more than enough to reach most broadcast towers. Unless you live off-grid, this range will suffice in ensuring you get a steady supply of channels.
  • The dimensions of the antenna are 13 by 12 inches. This is small enough for the product to be effectively hidden behind your TV. This feature makes sure that the aesthetic appeal and the décor of your TV lounge are not compromised.
  • The Antenna comes in black color. This means that even if you decide to place it within the line of sight of people, the device will blend in with the TV. (Here, we are assuming that you go for the traditional black models when choosing your television set)
  • The multi-directional reception sets it apart from other antennas in the market. This feature guarantees that you are never faced with reception issues. When you consider how irritating such issues are, you are bound to find this feature to be a source of convenience and a great value for money.
  • It comes with a 10-foot cable. This added accessory allows you to hide the wires of the antenna thereby guaranteeing that your décor is not harmed.
  • It can support 1080p HD TV, which means that it is compatible with most modern TV sets.

Why should you get Skywire TV Antenna?

In a world of satellite and cable subscription, the question that should arise in your mind is why you should get a Skywire TV Antenna?

If you are a budget conscious individual who wishes to do away with additional expenditure, Skywire TV Antenna is perfect for you. It allows you to eliminate cable fee while having access to free broadcast networks. Most news channels, shows, and children’s cartoon are available through this free channel. Popular networks that you will be able to access include ABC, CBS, NBC, The CW, and FOX. What else would you want to watch?

Is Skywire TV easy to set up and use?

SkyWireTV Cable Alterative ReviewOne of the worst things about using TV antennas is that they are too complicated to set up. Also, every time you switch the TV on, you have to set the antenna. We were pleasantly surprised when we used Skywire TV antenna and did not experience any of these issues.
Setting up the Skywire TV is very easy. All you need to do is plug the cable into your TV, place the antenna into your chosen location (it can be attached to the wall or placed on the TV frame), scan the menu and you will get the channels. Every time you want to watch TV, all that you will have to do is scan the menu. This scanning process is quite fast and hence is not frustrating, which is generally the case with TV antennas.

Examples of shows you may get through antenna:

What is the cost of Skywire TV Antenna?

The cost of Skywire TV antenna depends on how many you are purchasing. From their official website, you will be able to get one antenna for the price of $39.95. if you purchase more than one, a reduced rate will be charged.

Pros

Possible benefits of using the SkyWire TV Antenna is as follows:

  • It is a one-time cost.
  • It eliminates cable and satellite subscription fee.
  • It allows you to view over-the-air broadcast networks, which according to Nielson have the most-watched shows.
  • The antenna is thin and lightweight and hence can be placed wherever you like.
  • Setting up the antenna is very easy.

Cons

The drawbacks include:

  •  Premium channels, like HBO, and TSN(The Sports Network) will not be available.
  •  Reception can vary depending on what is broadcasted in your area and what is not.

  1. Jesse Muyiwa-Ojo says:

    Please where can I purchase skywire TV antenna in Nigeria, or may I ask if this antenna will work in my Country Nigeria ?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Yes SkyWire TV will work anywhere in the world that has local broadcasting. You can get Skywire by following >> this link<<

      1. James Novak says:

        Will it work in Christopher Creek Arizona at a cabin in the mountains

        1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

          Cant seem to find any info on that area, it seems to be far from any of the local broadcasters so if i had to guess you would get very few channels with a indoor antenna like Skywire TV. if you do try Skywire i suggest you get the booster to get you more range and probably more channels. Sorry i couldn’t be of more help

  2. Jesse Muyiwa-Ojo says:

    The skywire antenna is the best. I am going to buy it.

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      We really like SkyWire TV as well, it is the most reliable with the most amount of channels that we could find. Plus they have deals if you buy more than one so we have one in every room! thanks for the comment 🙂

  3. Linda says:

    Can I watch sports…TSN?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      I don’t believe TSN is available via TV Antennas setups but there are plenty of local sports channels available I get 20(ESPN included) or so different sports channels but that will vary from location to location based on local offerings.

  4. doug spanos says:

    will this work in australia

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Yes it will work perfectly fine in Australia

      1. mike harmon says:

        how about channels like discovery fx volicty?

        1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

          Those are all network channels, if they have a local branch then maybe but never heard anywhere that has those locally.

  5. Joxie says:

    Is this compatible with 4k TV model?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Unfortunately SkyWire TV is only available in 1080p HD. There are 4k from other brands but we have not found any that reliably support 4K. The technology in the 4K Antennas doesn’t seem to be as reliable yet. Plus most TV channels are not supporting 4k like movies and TV shows are. Hope that helps!

      1. Steve Cooper says:

        Local TV stations are not 4K, yet. Might be 20 years from now ! Buy a good UHF/VHF antenna made for outdoors. You may even need a good outdoor antenna amp. that boost at least 20 or more db. If you live more than about 30 miles from the stations. Don’t expect to get most stations that are on cable or sattelite. You will just get your local stations, plus their new sub stations that we didn’t get years ago. Example: we used too get channel 19, now we get channel 19, 19.1, 19.2. Most of these sub- stations carry old movies and old TV shows from the past.

  6. Glenn says:

    I live in Winnipeg MB will it work thare

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Yes it will work with all the local broadcasting in Winnipeg

      1. John says:

        How I can check how many channels i can get in Winnipeg ?

        1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

          Try this site https://www.channelmaster.com/Antenna-Selection-a/134.htm Just add your ZIP code and hit Check button and it should give you an estimate on what channels your antenna will pick up.

          1. Felicitas says:

            The link does not apply to Canadian locations. Any other source you could suggest?

          2. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

            Its available to Canadians are you still having issues?

  7. Lisa Kneggs says:

    What about HD ?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Skywire TV Antenna is an HD unit providing 1080p HD

  8. Debbie says:

    I live in Las Vegas NV will Sky wire work here also how many channels does it go up too?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      It looks like there are 50+ channels available in Las Vegas if you have an Antenna like Skywire Tv you can see all the channels by clicking here

  9. Sam says:

    Can you get the ESPN channels?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      You won’t be able to get everything, but you will get to watch all NFL games except for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” plus select, NCAA, NBA and MLB games when they air on network TV.

  10. Peter says:

    Is there any way to hook up a pvr so we can record and watch later? We never watch live broadcasts except for playoff finals.

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Yes, but you will need a separate unit. You can find them on amazon but this is one we have found works well Mediasonic Homeworx HW180STB Hope that helps!

  11. Linda chapman says:

    Can I use the skyWire TV antenna in a metal building

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      I would mount it on a window if possible for best results but may block out some channels still. Short of moving out of that faraday cage(haha just kidding) or getting antenna on your roof you will have a hard time getting a good signal inside. The booster they sell may be helpful in getting you a better signal but from what I heard metal buildings are a REAL problem for indoor antennas because the metal building reflects the signals before getting to you

  12. hazell says:

    does it work in cyprus

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Yes it does, check out the Cyprus TV Wiki it has channel information on it

  13. Susan says:

    Is this basically another way of getting free view programs in England, or can you get sky and cable programs also

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      You will only get the local OTA Channels(Over the air). I am unsure what Sky is being from the USA but you can check out The Wiki with all the available OTA Channels looks like 6 of the available channels are owned by Sky plc. Not sure if that is what you are looking for but hope it was helpful!

  14. Vaughn says:

    I live about 50 miles east of Orlando FL. Approximately how many channels would I expect to receive if I purchase this antenna.

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Hi Vaugn, you are in luck there seems to be TONS of channels available in your area. Check our Roger Simmons Page(click here) it has them all listed there. Keep in mind these are all the available Over The Air(OTA) channels. I suggest you take them up on their offer for the booster that gives you an extra 20 mile boost(50 total) you would really benefit from it because how many OTA channels there are around you. They don’t offer it to you till after you have purchased a unit from them though.

    2. Rob Dziedzic says:

      I live in Burlington ct. how many channels will I get? And how do I find out which ones?

      1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

        Try this site https://www.channelmaster.com/Antenna-Selection-a/134.htm Just add your ZIP code and hit Check button and it should give you an estimate on what channels your antenna will pick up.

  15. Wright Nancy says:

    Does your tv have to be digital for this to work?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      AS long as your TV has a Coaxial input which I think most TVs have even very old ones. It comes with a 10 ft High Performance Coaxial Cable and a euro adapter if needed as well depending where you are located.

    2. Deena says:

      In order to pick up the signal on a non-digital tv you will likely need to have a digital converter box to go along with the antenna. We had to get one for one of our tv’s. It would not give us any channels otherwise. You just need to follow the instructions that go along with the digital converter and hook up the antenna with it.

  16. Terry says:

    Will SkyWire work in London Ontario Canada

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Hello Terry, Yes it will although geographically speaking you are will only get the channels in London Ontario Canada and those channels(#) are as follows CITS-DT-2(#14), CICO-DT-18(#18), CJMT-DT-1(#20), CITY-DT-2(#31), CFMT-DT-1(#48), CFMT-DT-2,(#51). You may get a few more but quality may be spotty. If that isn’t enough and you want more channels they do offer you a booster after the initial purchase that will boost its range from 30 miles to 50 miles. I forget how much it was but it wasn’t much and that would give you access to about 6 more channels maybe a few more. There are about 21 total channels available in your area but would require a outside antenna(70 mile range) of some sort that is more powerful to pick up the frequencies further away. Skywire TV has a pretty strong built in antenna compared to some of the others ones I have tried so you may get some more of the available channels that are a little further out but you may only get those 6 if you don’t get the booster.

  17. Ray Messerly says:

    How can I return this product, I live in a country setting in Illinois and your device will get me a hole 4 channels. Not to happy, bought 2 cause inlaws have same deal. Live in country in U. S. and works for neither of us. Do they even have a return policy? Cause it took 31 days to even receive the 2 units plus boosters for both. I believe especially with a booster we should be able to pick up more then 4 channels. Thanks Ray M.

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Hey Ray M, Bummer that it got you so few channels out in the country. We are a website that does reviews and news on alternatives to cable and this is our Skywire TV Review. I can tell you that they have a 30 day return policy and it should start from the date of item received i believe them to be a honest company and so I am sure they will honor their policy in your case. support@skywiretvantenna.com is there email you need to request a RMA and then they can start the process of returning and refunding. Hope that helps!

    2. janet winstead says:

      I need to make a correction in my order. I ordered one 1 and was charged for serveral. Please help me correct this mistake that was made on your part.

      1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

  19. Ramona says:

    I have 3 tv’s in apartment,, main one of course living room ,, do I have to buy one for each tv in the rooms ?? Will and how I can still use my wifi ??

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      you will need a Skywire TV Antenna unit for each TV. If you have a device that allows wifi capabilities then yes you can use wifi but Skywire is a standalone indoor TV antenna and doesn’t require internet or wifi to function since it is all over the air frequencies

  25. colleen gilmour says:

    I have a tv antenna already but only get about 8 channels, some in Spanish. I am in san diego. Will this get me more channels and if so, is there any way I can find out which ones?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Do a search for ‘Local channels in ‘ on google and you should see which are around you. As for your antenna vs skywire it depends how good your current one is. Skywire gets 30 mile range which is great for an indoor antenna and also needs no adjusting of “bunny ears” so id guess you would get more, especially if you get the booster they offer you after purchasing the initial unit. They only offer it to people that have purchased Skywire to prevent people using it with competition units.

  26. Margaret says:

    Hi there. Can you tell me how many channels I would get in King George, VA 22485?

  29. David says:

    Will skywire function well in a mobile home?

    1. The Cable Cutter Guy says:

      Yes it will as long as you have a TV and a power source Skywire TV will work.
