Yes, it has the digital antenna connected to a coaxial cable that attaches directly to your HDTV. I put mine up on a bookshelf to get the best reception in my area, so I did not use the adhesive that comes with it to stick it to a window.

Answer: 
Yes, depending upon your location and the location of broadcaster transmitters. TV signals are almost entirely UHF now, and UHF prefers line-of-sight. So obstructions will reduce signal strength. Higher placement of the antenna will help, but if you're 50 miles from the nearest broadcaster and down in a valley among trees, you'll likely not get any reception. If you're within 30 miles or so and up high, Read More

Higher placement of the antenna will help, but if you're 50 miles from the nearest broadcaster and down in a valley among trees, you'll likely not get any reception. If you're within 30 miles or so and up high, you should be fine. This antenna is somewhat directional, so best reception is generally perpendicular to the "flat" side of the antenna. Read Less

It should work in an RV, but keep a few things in mind:
1. metal walls will block the signal (mount on a window or fiberglass wall).
2. these are designed for urban areas where you are close to the transmitters. No reception in rural or remote areas.
3. urban "campgrounds" are crowded with metal skinned RVs that will block signal.

Answer: 
Based on the experience of 2 flat type antennas, don't count on coverage if you are more than 20 miles or less from their signal tower. Both cited coverage of less than 50 miles from the signal source and if you are in the mountains I would doubt you would be happy with either type of flat antennas.
Than again, try it at your RV storage lot or home parking space first but don't expect great coverage.

Yes, as long as you have a flat screen HDTV with a coaxial input to attach the antenna to and that you are camping within range of some tv stations.
You can put the antenna in various spots in the RV to experiment; but each time you try it, you need to select "Antenna" as the input source in your TV's "Settings" menu & then select "Autoscan." It is super simple.

I live in the middle of a 20 acre ranch a little south of Santa Fe, New Mexico & I have a metal roof. I currently pull in 52 channels with the best and clearest reception that I have ever had in the past with cable & satellite TV! There is a wide variety of programming available & it is all free (after you buy the antenna).

Answer: 
Paint won't stick to the vinyl antenna (or it will crack and chip off). Acetate decals stick well, and I'm sure that contact paper would also. This could be painted. Ask your Home Depot paint specialist make sure they don't give you anything metallic or Mylar.

Answer: 
The Winegard packaging mentions Nothing about the painting possibility, but I can well imagine painting would be a " Negative " factor in it's ability to pull in the ' Tough Chore ' Digital Over the Air Signal. You don't want to do ANYTHING to hinder an indoor antennas already formidable task.

Answer: 
It can... as with any antenna, you can run it to a splitter. The only issue will be signal strength loss, depending upon how many ways you "split" it. Whether that's an issue is entirely dependent upon the signal strength you start with (your location vs broadcaster locations and how much power they're radiating). Of course, you can always add a small UHF amplifier prior to the splitter to compensate.

Answer: 
I would imagine you should have one antenna per TV. Trying to " Spread Out " the received signal to a second or third TV would likely diminish performance to an unacceptable level. Remember Digital Over the Air TV reception is challenging ( in my experiences anyway ) and you need all the signal you can muster to get the results that can provide " watchable " TV ! Best of Luck ! ! !

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 188 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Picks up a lot of channels The antenna works really well -- I have 67 HD channels! However, I noticed that if I have my blinds down, it will cause the picture and audio to glitch like crazy. So I always have the blinds just above it so I get a good picture. Might be a pain if you put it on a really sunny window and there's glare on your TV. But other than that, it works really well and I would recommend it. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Antennae I purchased this product a week ago at the Home Depot. I've known the Winegard product line for many years, including back when they made home satellite dishes. I tried the Mohu antennae on another television several years ago, and found that it did not stand out among an RCA antennae that I had and several others. I figured I'd try the Winegard and was pleasantly surprised. The antennae is very thin as stated in their ads, and the coax cable is included all in one piece. All I had to do was place the antennae on a nearby wall and attach the cable to the television and run a scan of the channels. I only live about 25 miles from the mountain top local transmitters for our stations. I was able to pick up over 40 channels, with a very high quality picture on most all of them, especially on the well known stations. I found other stations of very good quality that I did not even know existed. I cancelled my cable subscription and am saving a bundle each month now and am not paying to watch commercials. I highly recommend this antennae. May 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEYOND BELIEF Bought this today after reading all the reviews. Immediately picked up all the locals at about 75% power. Can't believe how well this antenna works. Really a no-brainer. But, as always when it comes to local conditions, YMMV. August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDTV Antenna Works great. It solved a problem of where to put it. It fit in the kitchen cupboard door. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Price and it works!! I cut the cord and was looking for a reasonably price indoor antenna that gave me a few local channels. After purchasing and returning three antennas from the big box electronics store I purchase this antenna. Not only do I receive all my local channels crystal clear but I receive stations from up and down the Pacific Coast. I'm in Los Angeles and I'm able to get channels from San Diego to Santa Maria. It sits on top of a bookcase and is completely invisible. This is perfect. July 12, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Disappointed, doesn't pickup all the channels in my area. Moved it many times only getting four channels July 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Free HDTV in a pinch I needed a quick solution to pick up local hdtv service from an antenna 15-25 miles away. This unit worked through the window and was only slightly bothered by wind blown tree limbs inline of sight to the antenna. Even included removable tape to hang it on the window. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! Couldn't be easier! Works great, I get over 20 channels & it is not noticeable on the wall. Highly recommended! June 7, 2016
