OTA HDTV Reception Q&A

Updates on the DTV transition and how to receive over-the-air digital television for free.

Location: Richmond, IL, United States

Hello there! I created this blog to share the information about over-the-air HDTV reception you have been wearily searching the Web or calling technical lines for, whether you have decided for less expensive means to get your favorite TV shows, or still adjusting from the over the air broadcast DTV transition that occurred on June 12, 2009. After working for a leading antenna manufacturer for almost 5 years, during which time I've shared my expertise with those who asked on the phone and by email at work, I decided to do the same in the Blogosphere! Confused about getting your local HD channels? Just click through the archives, some of the most useful information is in the early posts from 2005-06. If you want to get in touch with me with antenna related questions, just leave a comment anywhere on this site.

I have posted a couple blogs about MeTV, the Weigel Broadcasting owned classic TV station for Chicago and Milwaukee. Well, after a little additional research, it turns out that classic TV on a DTV subchannel is available in several markets across the country over the Retro Television Network - http://www.rtnville.com/ If you click on the "RTN Affiliates" or "RTN Programming" link you can see where this classic TV service is available in the country, and on which DTV subchannel.

Apparently in the MeTV case there is a partial partnership with RTN to broadcast these classic shows while Weigel holds a library of its own to fill the time 24/7 while other affiliates have a more limited schedule depending on the affiliate. Anyway, figured I'd mention this before someone out there catches my regional bias!
