Because getting local news and weather is essential for day to day life, local digital channels are available free for everyone. Finding your local channels is easy when you know where to look. While there are many websites that generate lists of local channels, AntennaWeb.org generates a list of obtainable channels when using an antenna. However, a complete list of channels within 120 miles of your home can be found at TVFool's website.

Go to AntennaWeb's website.
Click on the "Choose an Antenna" tab in the center of the screen.

Go to TVFool.com.
Enter your address and zip code and click "Find Local Channels." A full list of channels within 120 miles of your location will be generated.
