Mohu Ups the Ante on Antenna Amplification with FirstStage


The cord-cutting trend doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon, but as more and more consumers opt for free over-the-air broadcasts, many are learning that a pair of rabbit ears and some tin foil just doesn't cut it.

That's why Mohu (which dubs itself "The Cord Cutting Company") has developed its new FirstStage amplifier, which isn't a sold-separately product, but rather integrated into many of the company's new antennas, including offerings from its Blade, Sail, and updated Leaf lineups.

More info directly from Mohu:

Mohu, The Cord Cutting Company, introduced the FirstStage amplifier, an innovative approach to managing picture quality and ensuring an optimal viewing experience for cord cutters. The FirstStage amplifier is designed to not only dramatically improve antenna performance but also simplify the install process with a more intuitive set-up.  

The FirstStage amplifier was made possible by recent advancements in Mohu's research and laboratory test systems. These enhancements have enabled the company to design an unparalleled amplifier design that provides viewers with consistent access to a wider range of channels with better reception and less pixelation, giving customers a crystal-clear picture.

"At Mohu, we pride ourselves on continuing to lead the antenna industry in product innovation, while still focusing on the needs of today's cord cutters," said Mark Buff, founder, and CEO of Mohu. "The FirstStage amplifier marks a long journey from our original paper-thin TV antenna, but its ability to enhance the viewing experience and set the bar for antenna technology reflects the same goals we've been committed to since 2011."  

The FirstStage amplifier is currently integrated with Mohu's most recent antenna models to enhance the viewing experience for customers. Its unique integration with the antenna makes it particularly beneficial for cord cutters who use longer lengths of coaxial cables for roof-mounted antennas or other locations outdoors. This also helps to ease the install process by eliminating the need to have access to electrical power at the antenna end of the path.  

FirstStage Amplifiers are now available in most of Mohu's newest models, including Blade, Sail, and updated versions of the Leaf family.
