Winegard FlatWave FL5000C Indoor Antenna Available Exclusively at Costco

The FlatWave FL5000c Translucent HDTV Antenna from Winegard is another of those flat television antennas designed to work well indoors.  This antenna is only 13″ X 12″ X 0.6″ thick, and it’s almost invisible hanging on your wall or laying on the table beside the TV.  The FlatWave uses highly-conductive, real silver elements for maximum signal reception and transfer.  The antenna has a 15′ Mini 59 coaxial cable, and it can receive over-the-air stations up to 25 miles away.  You’ll be able to watch programming in HDTV and even Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, if your local stations transmit it – without paying expensive monthly bills.  The FlatWave FL5000C Translucent HDTV Antenna is available exclusively in 200 Costco stores.  I can’t find it at, so you’ll need to check with your local store for availability.  No price is specified for the FlatWave.

    $29.99 at Costco. I was super skeptical since my more expensive amplified antenna had trouble getting a few channels but this thing is amazing. It gets every channel perfect. Your mileage may vary but it’s worth a shot. I am probably buying a 2nd one.

    Directed to Dean:
    I see no reason why this antenna should not work in Oz, but since your signals are vertically polarized, you will need to hang the antenna sideways. In other words, the cable will emerge from the side, rather than the bottom.
