Well it is true that OTA TV looks better than cable or satellite because it is not heavily compressed. But any decent antenna provides this, nothing in the advertised antenna is so special.
I put up an antenna and dropped satellite TV and I get about 70 channels (counting the sub-channels) but about half are in Spanish, Vietnamese, Japanese, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Korean, which are not of much interest to me.

Art: Please stare at that image link for one hour, nonstop, and learn what a REAL aerial looks like.
Those dinky toys, including the one mentioned by the orig. poster, are just that - TOYS. Good mainly for viewers less than 20 miles, line-of -sight, from a major metro market. That is, they can SEE the Empire State or a guy-tower from their windows. Or someone living where a "real" antenna is not permitted.
The only thing those weird looking contraptions are good at pulling in is money from ones wallet.
Lesson over.
