Your link is a US product.

Will it work in the real world (the UK)?

Portable or indoor aerials are usually a waste of time.

Taking a feed off your main TV aerial (easiest way is via a TV signal amplifier costing around £8-£15 depending on how many outlets are available) is the best method.

Tesco had these aerial amplifiers at half price until recently but, even at full price, a two signal output example is under £10.
