What is an omnidirectional over-the-air antenna?
A long range omnidirectional antenna is a 360 degree reception TV antenna, meaning it receives signals from all directions, and hence there is no need to rotate it or position it properly. It is ready for use after installation. This omni directional style of antenna is especially useful for those in the mobile market, or who are planning on relocating their antenna frequently, because each time you relocate, there won’t be any need to point the antenna or track down the tv signals and channels, since this antenna can receive signals in all directions, 360 degrees around.
What is the difference between directional and omnidirectional antennas?
Directional antennas are designed to receive signals from one direction. They will need to be angled in this specific direction to receive signals that will then be streamed to your television. These are often limited to carrying only one signal, the one it is currently aimed at. Because directional antennas focus all of their energy into one direction, they are more powerful and can pick up uhf vhf tv signals from much further away.
Omnidirectional or multi-directional antennas have a 360 degree range and don’t need to be pointed at any specific angle. Instead, they pick up signals from multiple directions and transmit them to your television. As a result, they are easier to install and often receive multiple signals, providing access to more channels for people in certain areas. Omnidirectional outdoor tv antennas can pick up signals bouncing off other objects, making them a good choice for people who live in built-up or poor signal areas.
Directional antennas are best for people who live in rural areas. If you have a nearby city that has a lot of broadcast towers, you can have your antenna pointing toward the city, and you’ll receive a signal from all the towers in that direction. The downside is that a directional antenna requires you to find where the signals are coming from and directly point your antenna toward them during installation. KING has a signal finding solution for that though, so if you are interested in purchasing a powerful directional antenna that’s easy to use and point, check out our Jack antenna here.
Omnidirectional antennas are much better suited for those who live in urban areas where tv stations are broadcast from different areas. You’re surrounded by broadcast towers, and being able to receive signals from all of them can be excellent. The range should have you covered well, even if you live in a large city, and these antennas often have all the features you may need. The fact that you’re receiving signals from more than a single tower can translate into better image quality.
Can I watch both vhf and uhf channels with the KING OmniPro?
Yes! The KING OmniPro omnidirectional tv antenna allows you to watch both uhf and vhf channels, as well as FM band signals. This omni directional antenna provides improved UHF signal reception - where more than 80 percent of new HDTV channels are broadcast - and continues to offer excellent reception of remaining VHF channels. It’s easier than ever to get strong signal reception and watch local channels when you’re away from home.
Is the OmniPro designed for RV and outdoor use?
The KING OmniPro is specifically designed for RVers - the sleek 360 omni directional design easily mounts to the roof of your RV and lets you avoid the hassle of pointing or cranking everytime you relocate your RV. Its weather resistant design allows for optimal use as an outdoor HDTV antenna.
Is the OmniPro a long-range antenna?
The OmniPro omnidirectional tv antenna is a powerful, long-range over-the-air HD TV antenna. Reception and how many channels you will be able to pick up largely depends on your location and geography.
The gain of an antenna indicates how well the antenna focuses energy from a particular direction, in comparison with a standard antenna. All of KING’s over-the-air tv antennas are considered high gain, because they are amplified and designed to pick up signals from a long range distance. Our long range antennas could mean the difference between picking up just a few nearby channels within a limited line of sight, and picking up many farther away channels from miles away, at a higher viewing quality. With both indoor and outdoor options, KING offers a variety of different solutions for both RV and home use, allowing you to take your favorite channels with you wherever you roam.
What is the picture quality like?
The KING OmniPro HD antenna delivers high definition, quality images to your screen. The antenna is amplified for maximum signal strength and reception range, delivering a clearer picture to your TV. Whether you are using your KING antenna on your RV or in your home, enjoy crystal clear reception and high quality HD TV pictures for all your TV viewing.
Can the OmniPro antenna be used in the home or for indoor use?
Yes, our omnidirectional antennas are great indoor tv antennas, however we would recommend our OmniGo design as opposed to our OmniPro, because it comes in a portable setup that does not require it to be mounted to anything. Because there is not pointing required, simply set up one of our KING omnidirectional tv antennas as an indoor antenna and enjoy improved signal range for your home tv. KING is currently working on a home mounting kit for indoor antenna use, to allow for seamless home use and easy installation, so stay tuned for our latest innovations!
How many channels will I get with the KING OmniPro antenna?
The amount of channels you will be able to pick up with this omnidirectional outdoor tv antenna will largely depend on your location and what kind of mile range and landscape lies between you and the nearest TV broadcast towers. Because the omnidirectional outdoor tv antenna receives signals from all directions, it doesn’t point quite as far in any particular direction, therefore doesn’t reach signals as far away as some of our other long range directional tv antennas (such as the KING Jack Digital High Definition TV Directional OTA antenna). It does, however, allow you to bypass the hassle of having to repoint or crank the antenna everytime you relocate your RV to a new campsite.
For a more accurate representation of how many channels you will pick up in your area, we recommend using a service that allows you to input your address, then shows you what kind of channels you have available around you, as well as what kind of outdoor tv antenna you will need to pick these signals up from where you are. Check out AntennaWeb to learn more about the TV reception in your area and what kind of antenna you will need.

I don’t write a lot of reviews but this one stands out. I have always had the crank up antenna that has to be turned to find the station. Sometimes I even forget to put it down. I decided to try this omnidirectional antenna. I love it. I just mounted it on the roof in an open spot fairly close to the crank up antenna. I unhooked the cable from the old antenna and used a short cable and coupler to hook it up to this new antenna. Since my old antenna was already supplied with a 12V booster, I didn’t need to install any separate power supply to the antenna. We just got back from a 3 week road trip through Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Wyoming and it worked great. After setting up in our campsite all I had to do was run a scan on my TV and it would pick up stations. Most of the time they were HD quality . I was amazed at how many I could get. This saved me so much time setting up. I am very happy with this antenna.
The part I like is not worrying about cranking up or down. Also Omni Pro there is no tuning the antenna. However some think the King Jack, directional antenna, has more gain. I did use the mounting plate and covered all holes from bat wing antenna. I used butyl tape and dicor self leveling. Worked good.
Works great...beats the hell out of the old crankup.
we get over 15 channels at the coast in the tall trees! its great! directions are a bit difficult to install, but its not hard once you figure it out.
installed on 2016 outback FRS 5th wheel 32 ft.
This was very easy to install! Product directions were clear and no moving parts to maintain. Would buy again.
Sense I broke the original, I bought this one as a replacement. Pulls in channels and they are clear. Army house pulls in channels roughly 50 miles away, over fairly flat land and I live on top of a hill too. Hooked up easily and work immediately.
Works great! Was able to get 42 channel's after auto programming was done.
