      Answer

      No plug in for the wall. Just hook cable to the back of the TV and scan for the channels in your area.

          Answer

          You may need to set your TV on "scan" after attaching the new antenna. If not, the TV may have recorded few (or no) channels when it previously scanned with a less-capable antenna (or with none at all) In which case it's not that the new anteanna doesn't receive, it's that your TV is not yet including ABC, NBC, CBS etc Good luck!

            Answer

            There are no more analog channels They were ceased when NTSC transitioned to ATSC quite a few years ago. Only digital channels are sent out. If you are receiving analog channels and in a remote area then you can get a convertor box and receive the digital stations

                Answer

                If you have a cable port on your TV set you can install the antenna into it directly, power up the TV to do channel search in TV setup mode to sync the devices , and enjoy. Hope this helps.

                    I can get CBS, ABC, NBC channels 27, 33 and some other digital channels may need to put close to window for a better signal and up high. I took mine and held and moved around to see where the signal was better and that is where I put it.

                        You need to go online and click on the network that you want. Most have weekly schedules under LOCATE TV.
