What have you done to Ion TV overload on that bone show can’t stand at MacGyver childish bones is on 15 channels a day you take away my NCIS LA the one show I love. Give me . NCIS LA PLEASE BACK

You wouldn't change all the shows again. You cram Bones into what must be 20 different channels at a time. I can't stand that show MacGyver, and now you have shoved Bull on us. The reruns are so redundant. Please give me back my NCIS LA, please, please, please. The rest of those shows nobody watches, especially don't watch them. Change your lineup. Get rid of Bones and that sex show, that would be the Survivor sex show that is disgusting. All it is about is just total deviant sex. I can't stand that show, NCIS LA, NCIS New Orleans, please.

It is a SCAM!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I ordered 2 of the Skylink antennas and installed per directions. When I did a channel search, I did not receive even 1 channel.

I tried a different room. Still no luck. I e-mailed Skylink and they said I was doing it wrong and to try a certain method. That was the exact method I tried, but I did try it again.

STill no luck. So I asked to send them back and get a refund. They quit answering me. Since I had used PayPal to buy them, I contacted PayPal with my complaint.

Soon after that I heard back from Skylink. TRy one more time. I did and nothing happened, again. I told them I wanted my money back.

This time they said the antennas must have been defective and they would refund my money to PayPal, which they did. They didn't even ask for the antennas back.

At least I got my money back. But you can tell it is a scam.

According to Skylink TV Antenna refund policy you will get full refund of your purchase if your antenna is damaged. However, in the Skylink TV Antenna return policy there is no information on how you can send the defective product back. In this case they advice to contact the Skylink TV Antenna customer service department by email support@skylinktvantenna.com, by phone (800) 351-4939.

Over 30 years of USNavy Avionics engineering experience tells me to tell everyone DO NOT BUY these antennas, regardless of who they are made by and what the hype says! They don't work any better than a metal clothes hanger! Don't waste your time and money.

Guest

People, don't let ANY of these so called antenna companies set you back even one cent! They don't work.

You're better off sticking a metal clothes hanger in your antenna port! I've spent 30 years in the USNavy as an Avionics engineer and pilot.

Trust me. Don't waste your time and money.

What they send you is a cheap piece of plastic with a piece of metal and a cord attached. Instant disappointment, you can tell it won't work before you try hooking it up. I was fortunate and got a refund.

The Government needs to protect the consumers.

TOTAL SCAM!! DO NOT BUY ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS!!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I THOUGHT THAT I'D TRY THIS ANTENNA INSTEAD OF DIRECTV AND ORDERED (3) ANTENNAS AND (3) AMPLIFIERS BECAUSE IT STATED THAT THIS WOULD GIVE ME A 60 MILE RANGE TO RECEIVE UP TO 100 CHANNELS "FREE"; SO I WAITED AND FINALLY RECEIVED MY ORDER WITH "NO INSTRUCTIONS" ON HOW TO INSTALL ANYTHING? I WORKED FOR OVER THREE HOURS AND FINALLY GOT MY BEDROOM TV TO ONLY COME UP WITH FOUR (4) CHANNELS??

WHAT?? SO I ATTEMPTED TO CONTACT THIS COMPANY AND NO PHONE WAS PROVIDED ONLY AN EMAIL; OF WHICH I SENT TWO EMAILS WANTING ASSISTANCE AND ONLY GO "WE HAVING HIGH VOLUME RIGHT NOW BUT AN AGENT WILL GET BACK WITH YOU?'" I WAITED THREE (3) DAYS WITH NO RESPONSE FROM THIS COMPANY? I EMAILED AGAIN STATING THAT I WANTED TO RETURN ALL OF THEIR PRODUCTS FOR A REFUND? STILL NO RESPONSE?

SO I CONTACTED MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY ASKING TO DISPUTE THE CHARGES AND THEY HAVE PLACED A 15 DAY HOLD UNTIL I POSSIBLY HEAR BACK FROM THIS HORRIBLE COMPANY WITH NO CUSTOMER SERVICES PROVIDED??

THE WEBSITE ACTUALLY TRIES TO TELL YOU THAT IT'S NOT A SCAM AND THAT YOU CAN GET OVER 100 CHANNELS WITH SPORTS FOR "FREE"?

DO NOT BELIEVE IT!! UNLESS YOU CHECK YOUR AREA FOR RECEPTION MAPS ON HOW MANY CHANNELS ARE PROVIDED IT'S NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY TO BUY AN ANTENNA!!

Can't anybody give me an address I can write to or get my money back. Thanks.

Getting less channels than I get with normal Freeview TV and getting even less when booster is connected. All I was told was depends on distance from mast and weather conditions I stand at my back door and can almost see mast over clear water approx 12 miles away weather sunshine. So if in UK forget it.

I will like to cancel the order PLEASE

Still waiting for my product

Guest

Researched the so called sky antenna. From what I can deduce it's a total scam.

Going back to pre cable TV an antenna on a tower with rotation worked unbelievably well. So now were digital but a broadcast signal is still the same.

Not interested and I can make a homemade version that will pull in some stations and they're HD as well. Beware of the scam as they dont support or follow up and give out the same standard message to complaints!

Guest

They got to me for $49.99 + S&H. They showed a box similar to my cable boxes.

It was a flat piece of plastic with a short cable. They are full fledged criminals.

Guest

Thanks for warning me I thought it was a con to good to be true lots of robbing *** on the internet always check before you buy nice one mate

luckily i only purchased one...but, came with no directions...screwed the cable in to the cable receptor in the back of tv.....nothing..... nothing nothing.....i have moved it around...nothing.....no other way to plug into tv.....thats it...nothing

Guest

I bought this antenna and they charged my account twice. The antenna only picked up 15 channels and my $9 picks up 22 channels.

I am only 12 miles from a transmitter station. I now hope my bank can get my money back.

Guest

Thanks for the review. Like the saying goes, "If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is".

No. Not going to happen.

Y’all......and please learn your place. You have no right to demand they do anything. If they have chosen to switch their line up, then that is their RIGHT!! Do YOU own the station?

No?!? SHOCKER!! Wait are you a majority stock holder?? No??

So what makes you think you have a right to say anything? Oh that’s right!! Y’all Benz gettin that gument monezz!! Silly little snowflake please grow up and go back to school.

You’re on a website that they DO NOT MONITOR!! You basically made a demand on a website dedicated to people whining how unfair life is, NOT the website of the antenna ppl.

I swear!! It’s like your brain cells just leaked out of your ears.

Do Not Buy This Product!!!!

With the astronomical price of cable, and rising I was looking for an alternative. So I ordered 3 of the Skylink Antenna's, assuming that I could return them if they didn't work.

I received the product and hooked them up, only received 3 channels of one of my TV's. No channels on the other 2. I emailed the company to request an Return Material Authorization Number for return. After a week, I received an email saying that I could not return the product and they were not responsible for me not being able to receive any channels.

This is a total scam---DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!

This company does not have any integrity, and they clearly don't stand behind their products. I AM WARNING YOU, PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!

i purchased this antenna on sept 7 2018, they charged my credit card on the 8th of sept but did not ship out until the 14th of sept 2018. i have tracked this everyday since and there is no update from USPS.

i emailed the company several time to no avail.

i have to wait 30 days before my credit card company wil file a complaint, i am so pissed i have never had to deal with such a *** company before and they should be shut down. Pissed off Paul.

Guest

I too just received the SkylinkTV antenna and it hardly picks up any stations. The three stations I can get with it will not even come close to allow us to pull the plug on cable tv.

Guest

I bought a Skylink TV antenna and it doesn't work. I asked for a full refund and have not had any success.

They responded saying they sent instructions which I didn't even receive.

Don't by a Skylink TV antenna. They don't work

Guest

They will not work where I live, I purchased 3. I spent almost $100.00 and it does not work.

Don't take the chance!!! THEY DON'T DO REFUNDS AT ALL!!! It takes 2 weeks for them to answer an email and then they are not really answers.

When you send another, it starts the 2 weeks all over again. I have never dealt with a more non-customer service friendly company.

Guest

I live in Malibu, CA in the electronic shadow of the Santa Monica mountains. Therefore I do not have line of sight to Mt Wilson, from whence most of The LA TV broadcasts emanate. The TV antenna ads conveniently omit any discussion of this problem.

Guest

I was weary of this too-good-to-be-true product. I’m glad I didn’t buy it. I’m sorry for your monetary loss, but I appreciate you telling the world!

Guest

Thank you. I was on the *** of buying 3 also and I scrolled down the comments and I'm glad I did it's like anything else you can't amplify unless you have something to happen if I it's common sense you can't have a signal if you don't have one so live long and prosper

Guest

Your credit card company will get you your money back, press them with the facts!!!

GET YOUR MONEY BACK FROM THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY!!

I got one. Did not receive a single channel. I guess I'm out my $48.70.
