Analog TV

If you receive television over the air using an antenna, analog television and converter box: 

  • If you have an indoor antenna, place it as high off the ground as possible and near a window or outside wall. If you have an antenna with “rabbit ears”, the “ears” should be extended about 18 inches. Position them so that the transmitter site would be between the “ears," like the illustration below:

Keep in mind that the signal diminishes with distance from the transmitter site, or if there are physical obstacles such as mountains and buildings, between you and the transmitter site. If the signal is too weak for your indoor antenna, you many need a rooftop antenna, which can be purchased for a little as $20.

  • If you have a rooftop or attic antenna, the point the narrow part of the antenna toward the transmitter site.
  • Once you have correctly positioned the antenna, connect the antenna coaxial cable to the converter box. Then connect the converter box to the television input. Use your converter box remote to prompt your converter box to scan for channels.  24/7 will appear on channel 7.2
