What type of antenna is right for you?

Make sure your TV viewing experience is everything it should be by selecting the right antenna. Purchasing the wrong antenna for your location could result in poor reception, a bad viewing experience, or even a return. So, use the guide below to make the right choice, before you buy.

START HERE: How far away is your closest signal?

The first step in selecting the right antenna for your location, and viewing needs, is finding the nearest TV signal. And, it's easy. Just follow the link to the free FCC site, type in your address, and you'll see on the map where the nearest tower is located.

Indoor or Outdoor Antenna?

Indoor

  • Less than 25 miles to the nearest tower
