New amplified broadcast VHF/UHF TV antenna is most advanced on the market today
BURLINGTON, Iowa – (April 11, 2013) – Winegard today announced that Costco® Wholesale Corp. stores coast-to-coast are now selling the antenna pioneer's innovative new FlatWave® Amped, the amplified version of its FlatWave® over-the-air indoor HDTV antenna. The FlatWave Amped is made in the USA and retails for $89.99.
This razor-thin, multi-directional amplified antenna is the most advanced dual band (VHF/UHF) antenna on the market today. It weighs in at just over two ounces and receives HDTV broadcast signals up to 50 miles away to deliver near Blu-ray® quality television viewing.
Owners of a FlatWave Amped are astonished at its performance, ease of use and more:
- Crystal clear, free reception of local VHF/UHF broadcast channels
- Receives all the top 10 TV shows in high definition, at no cost
- Full 1080 HDTV resolution, the sharpest picture currently available
- Replaces cable or satellite TV for savings up to $1,200 per year
- Indoor antenna that can easily be moved around for best reception and goes with any décor
- Complete set up in just minutes with an illustrated Quick Start guide
"Costco has been a great retail partner for us," said Winegard National Sales Manager Grant Whipple. "By selling our new FlatWave Amped broadcast TV antenna, Costco gives the product exposure to millions of American consumers. That's important because the Amped is one of the very few indoor dual band antennas on the market, which means consumers don't miss out on a major network that UHF-only antenna owners may experience. Consumers receive all local broadcast stations free."
The FlatWave Amped picks up free TV from all the major local broadcast networks, such as ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and PBS, plus additional networks like Qubo, ION, The CW, Universal Sports and more, also including local and regional weather and sports that paid programming may not provide.
FlatWave Amped joins the original FlatWave and the recently launched FlatWave Mini as the newest member of the high performance indoor HDTV antenna family from Winegard. More FlatWave antenna products are currently in development for introduction in 2013.
