There has been a lot of buzz going around the Skylink TV antenna wherein it promises to provide its viewers with amazing picture quality and also more than 100 channels at 1080 high-definition.

Design: 

The structure or design of this antenna is quite simple and straightforward. It is a small, super-thin and black coloured plastic design. Due to it being flat and thin, it becomes pretty straightforward for hiding the antenna right behind the TV unit as well. Similar to any other indoor models, you can stick it on to the wall or also lay it flat on the table. However, it has been seen that the reception becomes weak when it is kept flat on the table. There is a coaxial cable which comes attached to the antenna at the bottom edge. This cable is thinner than the rest of the other cables hence it would become pretty much easier for stowing it. However, at the same it would make it less durable than those otherwise heavier gauge cables.
