8/23/13

All blacked-out broadcast stations remain available over the air, and most households can receive the signals if they have the right equipment:

  • An antenna
  • A TV set with a digital tuner, or an over-the-air digital converter box purchased at a retail location (not a Time Warner Cable set-top box).

Time Warner Cable has a limited quantity of basic indoor antennas available to pick up, for free, for customers at our TWC retail locations in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Los Angeles/Desert Cities, New York City, plus Milwaukee and Green Bay in Wisconsin.

In addition, we have partnered with Best Buy in those cities to provide $20 toward the purchase of any in-stock broadcast antenna at select Best Buy store locations.

What to know before you get an antenna: 

1)  Do you have the right equipment already?  You’ll want to determine whether your TV is a digital set with a digital tuner, or whether you have an over-the-air digital converter box purchased at a retail location (not a TWC set-top box.)  One of those 2 pieces of equipment is necessary to tune a digital signal on your TV once it’s been received by the antenna.

2) Can your location receive a good enough quality signal to make an antenna worthwhile?   Are you physically close to the broadcast tower that transmits the station you want to watch?  Are there major obstacles in the way (buildings, mountains, water)?  You can check the FCC website here to see how strong the signal is near your house for each broadcast station.  And then check here for an explanation of the different types of antennas available.

3)  Time Warner Cable is not responsible for the installation or performance of any antennas.

Where to get an antenna: 

1)   Time Warner Cable has a limited quantity of basic indoor antennas available for free, to be picked up at our retail cable stores in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Los Angeles/Desert Cities, New York, plus Milwaukee and Green Bay in Wisconsin.  Unfortunately, these basic indoor antennas have limited range, and will likely only work for customers whose CBS station originates in one of those cities, and who are within a short distance of the station’s transmitter.

Visit here to find a TWC cable store near you, and here for installation instructions.

2)   In addition, we have partnered with Best Buy in those cities to provide $20 toward the purchase of any in-stock broadcast antenna at select Best Buy store locations.
