4k UHD RCA Rabbit Ears

I found it funny that RCA is now selling rabbit ears that on the box it says that it receives 4k UHD Ultra High Definition. I think it will work ok for maybe 30 miles from a tower. Does anyone here get UHD over the air broadcasts yet?

RCA? lol! Snake oil salesmen if you ask me...

They've been scamming people for over a century....all transmissions (including 4K) ride on an analog carrier. Every antenna will work for UHD just as they do for HD and just as they did for the old analog signals.

RCA's biggest scam was back in the 1930s. They STOLE :finger the invention of television from the Utah boy, Philo Farnsworth. Do you all know the story of Philo Farnsworth? :thinking

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philo_Farnsworth

National Geographic had a recent documentary on Philo Farnsworth and his invention of television. Try and watch it sometime. RCA's egregious behavior of stealing patents and using legal to bankrupt Philo during those early days so they could have a monopoly on television manufacturing reminds me of Dish and Charlie Ergen today. :reddevil: :frown
