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. Then continue to scroll 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 sub-channels. For example, channel 4.1 will also have sub-channels 4.2 and 4.3. Each of these sub-channels broadcasts separate content. So you may receive more channels than listed above. Monthly channel scans on your TV are recommended to obtain the latest over the air channels.


FCC Auction/Repack

The FCC started an auction designed to re-purpose television airwaves for wireless companies. TV stations are moving to new frequencies between 2018-2020. This repack will affect over 1000 channels. For more information on the FCC auction, you can check out their website. To see if your area is affected enter your address at the FCC DTV reception maps.

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. Please see our recommend antennas below.

Use caution when purchasing an over the air antenna. There are many scams. When buying an antenna, stick to name-brand companies that do not exaggerate their clams. The ones we prefer are found on this page. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
