Fake Customer Reviews

The reviews displayed on are fake. Reverse image search showed the exact images have been used by other brands. Also, boasts of 1,200 4.7 star customer ratings on TrustPilot, but the link isn’t clickable. It doesn’t take you to their TrustPilot page.

Fake 30 Day Money-Back Guarantee

False Discount Offer

The 70% discount displayed on is totally false. Digital antennas of same specs cost between $10 – $35 not the $99 original price displayed on Even the discounted price of $49.99 is still exorbitant.

How The Rewave HD Antenna Scam Works

Rewave TV Antenna falls under the category of deceptive marketing. The manufacturers use a false NASA scientist invention story and limited discount offer to bait buyers on YouTube, Facebook, and other social media platforms.

The Ad commercial which is generated by AI, flashes so many wide claims and offers, making people think the antenna is a real deal. The positive reviews on the Ads and website are all scripted and not from real buyers.

In reality, the Rewave is a cheap digital antenna sold for extremely high prices and marketed with false claims. It can only access local channels, depending on how strong the signal bandwidth is. Getting a refund is impossible as the 30 days money back guarantee is false. There’s no active customer support to attend to customers.
