TV Station and Antenna Locator Tool

See what free channels are in your area?

Just enter your zip code or full address below to find out what free HD channels you can receive in your area. This tool will work in the USA and Canada. After you enter your zip code or address, click the map this button. You will then be presented with stations and broadcast towers that are available in your area. Next continue down the page to select the proper color coded antenna for your area.*By checking off "show lines pointing to each transmitter" the map will generate the location of the broadcast towers. This will help to select and point the antenna in the proper direction.



The stations listed in the results are only the primary broadcast stations. Many of these primary stations also broadcast subchannels. For example, channel 4.1 will also have subchannels 4.2 and 4.3. Each of these sub channels broadcasts separate content. So you may receive more channels than listed above.

Selecting an Antenna

Each station listed above is classified by a color code and distance from the broadcast towers. Use the color chart below and distance (Dist mi) to determine your antenna.

How to Choose an RV OTA Antenna

Last updated: Wednesday, June 13, 2018Most people who own an RV use it to get away from life and explore the country. It’s a great way to unplug and relax. But there are times when you need to stay connected to the news or just watch a TV show or a good movie. Just about every higher end RV comes equipped with a television and some do have built-in OTA antennas. Many times these antennas are small and flimsy and will not bring in many stations. In some cases, your RV may not have an OTA antenna at all. Especially if you are restoring an old RV or customizing one. The other great benefit is that broadcast television is free and in high definition, so you don’t have to pay a fee to watch local television. Your [...]

  2. Am I able to get tv @ 598 Brinton Rd. Port Lorne, Nova Scotia ?

    • I did a search and looks like you can get a few channels with a roof top antenna. Channel list: CBHFT-5,CBHT-6,CJCHTV1,CIHF-TV-5,CIHF-TV-6,CJCHTV6,CBHFT-6,CBHT-7,CJCH-13. Most of the broadcast towers are spread out. You may want to consider a rotary roof mount antenna, so you can point the antenna in the right direction. Example here: http://amzn.to/2qm0FxY. Good luck!

  3. Hi, can you tell me which would be the best antenna I could purchase as regards getting the most channels with decent quality? Im happy to put a freeview antenna on the roof if needs be! Thanks for your help

  4. I just got a Hue bridge for home automation which needs to be plugged into my internet router. By doing this I just lost 3 OTA channels. I have a Mohu indoor antenna on the way to replace my older one. Unfortunately I cannot more my router to a different location. Is there anything that an help cut out WIFI signals from interfering in my TV reception?

    • There are some filters that can cut out wireless interference, mostly from cellular towers. It maybe a power interference problem. It could be electromagnetic interference from the power in the house, due to the extra load of the home automation bridge. You could try unplugging power one by one and see if the problem goes away or use a power conditioner to clean up the power. Here is an example of a power conditioner: http://amzn.to/2BUeASf. If you want to try an antenna filter Channel Master makes a few. Here is one I recommend: http://amzn.to/2zhffuh. It will filter out cellular interference but may also work on wireless routers as well. I hope this helps. Good luck.
