How to get channels from a TV with no cable



This probably sounds dumb but I haven't connected an antenna to a TV in a long time, and went out and bought a new Samsung HDTV and cancelled my cable service. So my question is, I have already connected my TV antenna but I am not receiving any channels. What am I doing wrong? It's just a black screen right now that will only change to channel 2.

The number of free channels you will be able to receive depends upon what you use as an antenna and its installed height.

Please go to TV Fool (<- click Link) and fill in your location details including the maximum height above ground level where you plan to have your antenna. For your security, the website will automatically conceal your personal information.

Then, copy and paste the result (the URL) from your antenna survey here for us to look at, so we can make antenna recommendations for you.
