Luke DiMarco: Tired of paying for cable bills? Check out the Mohu Leaf! Mohu Leaf TV
Hoang Tran: you should let us know how many channels you able to pick up in the
description (you can look through the Channel list on your remote)...I am
in Toronto as well, less than 1km from CN Tower :D ...it's going to deliver
today! I wanted to know how many you are able to pick up...mine's deliver
today by 8pm :) costs me total $90 USD and not sure how much i need to pay
UPS handling fees later...I hate UPS when deliver stuffs from USA. Great
review! I am thinking if I should have gotten the Mohu Sky instead...would
it pick more channels I wonder?
kktpp: Hey I'm also in Toronto ( west end near high park) in a condo on the 18th
floor facing south at the lake. Although I have the Mohu SKY Antenna which
has triple the range(and is 3x the price) of the Leaf. Despite having a
clear view of the CN tower, I found that pointing it towards Buffalo got me
much more channels rather than at the tower. Pointing at the USA I got a
ton of US channels and all local Canadian channels. 28 HD channels in
total. vs only 15 channels pointing it at the tower.
To be honest I was hoping for 40+ channels but I guess almost 30 is still
good. Plus the fact that a lot of them are 1080i uncompressed HD signal
they look fantastic!
Ps. Due to the cold weather I have not yet tried mounting it on my balcony,
only have it setup inside so the channels I got are through the
Hope this helps.
Justin MacKay: I just bought the TERK HDTVa Amplified Indoor Antenna from Amazon for about
$50. I live at Yonge and Eglinton on the 9th floor facing west in an older
building with thick cement walls. I just set the thing up on my kitchen
table close to the west facing window, but facing south/south east
(pointing to Buffalo). I am getting 16-17 channels right now and it's
snowing out. I have to point it to Buffalo and extend the bunny ears to get
the additional American channels. (the following link is a map that shows
you where to point based on your exact location
http://www.xtek.ca/hdtvpointer/). From the reviews I've read before buying,
the Mohu Leaf typically comes in 2nd place after the TERK HDTVa Amplified.
I strongly recommend. After watching this review and seeing you get only
4-11 channels that close to the CN tower, I'd pay the extra coin for the
TERK. I'm calling Rogers tomorrow to cancel my $50/month crapty basic cable
package. Between Netflix, streaming everything, and this antenna, I think I
am all set! Thanks for the review Luke.
Askeem Williams: Hey Luke do you know if this will work in British Columbia?
bentleyontheair: so my mother has directv for the whole house and i have a satellite box in
my room hooked to my tv along with an rca antenna and an xbox 360 for
netflix and hulu all hooked up to my tv.
at my grandmothers house i have the leaf ultimate pro hooked up to my tv
there along with another xbox 360 for netflix and hulu... i like the leaf
its really good...
Jie Jin: I live in saskatoon, I am not sure should I pick up standard one or upgrade
one, PS I pay 175 dollar per month for my TV internet and Phone, internet
costs 55, so mainly I pay around 80 per month just for my TV cable with
Mark Gailmor: The Mohu Leaf Ultimate is even better. Great review.
Steve Lammerts: I found that hooking the Leaf up to my TV first, and searching for channels
populated more channels then with the amplifier hooked up. I hooked the
amplifier up afterwards to clear up the signals. I got 15 stations this way
in Omaha NE. When searching with the amplifier attached I only got 9. Try
Kevin Thai: How many channels did you pick up with the Mohu Ultimate?
Hoang Tran: @kktpp I got the Mohu Sky recently...and it did not perform any better than
my Mohu Leaf 50...I am from Toronto...Front Street W/Spadina Ave and
Spadina Ave/Dundas St...only have around 12 channels for both of them :(
Hoang Tran: I got it installed today 4pm...I am at around Spadina Ave and Dundas
St....I got the Mohu Ultimate...was only able to pick up 11 Channels
lol...my RCA antenna from bestbuy got 9 Channels...is this correct? Seems
like only 11 max I am able to pick up...that's why I wonder how many
channels you are able to get...from what I read from other Amazon reviewers
regarding Mohu Sky...some installed it inside their home/condo...and it
works as well...I was thinking should I return this Ultimate and get the
sky? If only I know how many channels you get I can make the decision...so
if your Mohu regular ones can pick up say....40 channels...then I am not
happy with my Ultimate and wants to switch to sky....I am on the 10
floor...I don't mind keeping this one over RCA cuz of the 2 extra
channel...also...does the bylaw applies to everyone living in Toronto in a
condo or it applies to certain condo?
p.s. you still have the Mohu Leaf? if so ...can you please go through the
channels and count them and let me know how many you are able to pick up? I
have a button in my remote "Channel List" and I can quickly scroll down and
count all the channels that is available...it's quick and fast...and i only
have 11 channels
helcruzer: Was curious to know if I would be able to hook this into my iMac (21.5"
latest) instead of the TV? Your thoughts?
Dylan Farnan: Cable is so damn expensive, ours works out to the equivalent of $150 per
month which is £100 here. The Mohu Leaf definitely looks like a better
Luke DiMarco: thank you! let me know when the bluewave arrives, sent your information to
them last week.
highdefinitiondiva: You Can get the Amplified One!!!
ladytube64: Will this work on a really old TV...and when I say old it's a Crosley floor
model about 35 years old...will I have to get some kind of adaptor ? or can
I just hook this up and that's it ? I want to cancel Comcast which I'm
paying $76 a month way too much....
Dean Avital: MovieBox from cydia....
Luke DiMarco: fiddled around with the antenna a little bit a few weeks ago and got tons
more channels from my apartment in toronto. My parents live about an hour
outside toronto and they only get 1 channel at their house, but its perfect
for me during the school year in the city.
Campwise05: Nice review Luke, we pay for cable at home but this looks like a cool
thepianoplayer416: Nice sales pitch for Mohu Leaf. Made in USA isn't really a factor for me as
long as I'm not buying cheap imports from China. The Nippon AU-14 on my
balcony is Made in Japan which is just as good. Gives me crystal-clear
picture. I'd rather pay $60 for a Nippon Antenna. May be old-fashioned but
these metal things have been on people's rooftops since the 1950s and still
the most reliable. The Mohu standard model gives you 4 channels and what
about the enhanced version? 8?
Stephen Holloway: Sounds like you'll need at least an analog to digital converter box. After
you buy the box, connect one end of the cable to the tv, and the other end
of cable to the box. Then connect the antenna itself to the box. Then just
scan the box.
thepianoplayer416: Can survive on just 1 station: PBS. Years ago PBS station 17 started a
sister station 23. Rogers cable carried 17 but not 23. Got an antenna for
it. I live in a high-rise. Got myself a Nippon AU-14 (like an arrow) from
Radio World. Mounted it on a tripod on the balcony and got 30 channels.
Paid $60 for it (still a 1 time fee). I can walk out and change direction
anytime. No reason to buy a $30 Mohu Leaf for 4 channels when I can get all
Toronto, Buffalo incl. 51 and 8 + 21 Rochester.
Luke DiMarco: I live in a condo downtown Toronto - it's not really the ideal location for
an outdoor antenna. This is the perfect solution for my living condition.
It's mobile, practically hidden and does its job. Having said that, back at
my parents house would be a prime location to test the Mohu Sky and if
anyone from Mohu is reading this, hit me up.
Luke DiMarco: I can't recall all of them but I know these for sure: CityTV Global CBC TVO
OMNI 1 & 2 CTV CP24 It will all vary depending on which region you are in.
barirdeeee2: I want to live where you live so hard. Whats the rent if I might ask?
Viksaur: really nice review!
Keegan Goerz: Is it legal?
OpenItDude: Great review Luke, thanks for the comment, looking forward to going through
ladytube64: Good review....
aspec82: Thanks for sharing. I will be buying mine soon. I live in Vancouver and
there are about the same amount of OTA channels in your region. Yes, the
Ultimate version will be for sure as this minimizes interference signals.
Have you ever considered the Mohu Sky which provides 60+ miles coverage?
Perhaps you be able to pick up American signals also.
Raymond Taggett: What were all 12 of the channels?
RollTheFemurs: I think I could probably survive if the only channels I got were CBC, TSN,
Viksaur: for sure man! :)
Luke DiMarco: Yes, 100% legal.
Mike W.: Got my Leaf Ultimate the other day and after the scan, 81 channels! I'm
28-35 miles from my towers. I love this damn thing.
jboots2007: ur glasses dam crooked bro
Luke DiMarco: I could survive on the Food Network alone.
