Setting up your Over-The-Air (OTA) Antenna

You can watch broadcast networks on your TV with an Over-the-Air (OTA) antenna. An OTA antenna will pick up the signal emitted by broadcast towers and deliver programming right to your TV.

Depending on the signal strength and your antenna, you may receive additional channels beyond the ones you get with DISH, as the antenna may pick up channels in surrounding areas.
