You know we’re always coming up with new and creative ways to help you set up or maximize your home entertainment system on the cheap. Think Geek just presented another free tv hack to the masses — Leaf. With Leaf you don’t pay for cable, or you could keep paying for cable and use Leaf to get access to tv in more rooms.
Check this shit out:
Leaf is a way for you to enjoy TV without paying a cable bill (or expanding to a new room without paying for an additional cable box). The patent pending Leaf indoor television antenna is a paper thin antenna that connects to your TV and mounts on the wall, enabling you to receive free over-the-air broadcasts.
If you’re ready to make the leap away from cable or satellite, give Leaf a try. (You can set it up as “Video 2” on your TV and compare the picture quality! Many channels look better over air) Don’t pay for hundreds of channels you don’t watch when you can get the essentials on your own terms. Hooray, technology!
The paper-thin panel is also reversible — black on one side, white on the other — so you can pick the side that matches your space the best (or hide Leaf behind some artwork: it will still work!). And it’s only $40!
And just for LULZ: A customer asked “Would this work in Australia?” And someone else responded “Yes, but you’ll have to flip it upside down.”
Seriously though, I’m considering this for my home. Anyone have experience with something like this?
