Idaho's Very Own


Antenna - Digital TV

If you receive television over the air using an antenna and digital tv set: 
Great choice! Antenna reception delivers the cleanest, clearest digital signal straight from KTVB’s transmitter and the very best high definition signal. And it’s free!

  • 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:

Keep in mind that the signal diminishes with distance from the transmitter site, or if there are physical obstacles such as mountains or 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 as little as $20.

  • If you have a rooftop or attic antenna, point the narrow part of the antenna toward the transmitter site, like the illustration:
  • Once you have correctly positioned the antenna, connect the antenna cable to your television set’s antenna input.  Using your television remote, prompt your television’s digital receiver to scan for channels. 24/7 will appear on channel 7.2 (or 7-2).
