“Over-the-air television programming that brings the family together, Antenna TV is treasured by cord cutters for its commitment to nostalgic shows that can be enjoyed by everyone.”
Antenna TV showcases classic, family-friendly TV programs and introduces fresh, contemporary programming that educates and entertains. Launched on January 1, 2011, Antenna TV broadcasts free throughout most of the United States over the air. Take a look at this affiliate map to see if it’s available in your area.
Antenna TV is most easily available over the air, so a digital HDTV antenna is the best way for you to enjoy it. If you live in an urban area that’s rich with over-the-air TV signals, give a Leaf Metro a try. It’s got a range of 25 miles, and if you live in an urban area like Chicago, you’ll pick up Antenna TV without a problem.
Antenna TV’s website offers an interactive online schedule. Its simple interface is easy to understand. I use it to find out when my favorite Antenna TV program, Maude, is going to be on. I have a Mohu Leaf 50 connected to the TV tuner in my PC, and use Windows Media Center to record the program.
Here’s a taste of what Antenna TV has to offer:
