Introducing the Televes LTE filtering, 3-port distribution amp for TV antennas. This amazing, two-in-one product can help some cord-cutters improve TV antenna reception. It’s a distribution amplifier, which means it amplifies the signal TV antennas receive. This device also filters LTE signals. What does that mean? Well, LTE signals is a fancy way of saying the signals sent out by cell phone towers. Cell phone signals can interrupt over-the-air TV signals, and cell towers are nearly everywhere these days.

This distribution amp delivers amplified and filtered TV signals to up to three TVs. This signal gets distributed to three TVs without ground loops or signal degradation. The unit features two 20dB gain outputs. It also features a 12dB gain output labeled “TV.” This is called the “pass-through” port. It allows the amp to be placed close to your TV set, and transmits signal at the same strength as the antenna signal. This helps prevent overloading your TV and lets you use the amplifier in your home theater setup.

Televes loaded this three-port distribution amp with plenty of amazing features, which include:

  • Built-in low-consumption switched power supply (UL Listed)
  • 0-15dB adjustment range for gain control
  • Compact and elegant form factor for indoor installation

Who Needs this Distribution Amp?

As great as this distribution amp is, it isn’t for everyone who cuts the cord.

  • Makes use of one or more splitters.
  • You like far from your local TV station transmitters. If you’re far away from the source, the signal gets weaker over that distance.
  • You live just outside the range of another nearby TV market and want to boost those faint signals you get from channels from that area.
