How to Get More Channels on DTV


DTV, or digital television, is now the standard broadcast signal for all television stations in the country. This means all channels you will be receiving are digital, rather than analog. However, you may not be satisfied with your current channel lineup, and whether you are using a cable provider or a digital antenna, chances are you can probably increase the amount of digital television stations you are receiving.

  • Look at the user manual of your digital antenna (if you do not pay for cable or satellite service). The manual will state how far away your antenna can receive a signal.

  • Purchase a new digital antenna from an electronics store such as Radio Shack or Best Buy (or even Walmart and Target, although they will have smaller selections). Make sure the receiving signal is stronger than your previous antenna. Some antennas can receive a signal over 70 miles away. The stronger signal will allow you to pick up other broadcasts you may not have received with your old antenna.

  • Call your cable or satellite provider. Upgrade your current package so you can receive more stations. Depending on your package upgrade, you will most likely have to pay at least $10 more per month for your service.

  • Arrange a time for your cable or satellite provider to come by and upgrade your receiver (if necessary). Occasionally, larger packages will require more advanced receivers.
