Connect ClearStream TV™ to your TV Antenna

ClearStream TV works with any HDTV antenna, and connects using a standard coaxial cable, just like the one used to connect the antenna directly to a TV. Be sure the antenna is positioned in the best location to receive broadcast signals, and ClearStream TV is within range of WiFi signals, with no obstructions to facilitate proper reception.
