CBS Channels Blacked Out On Dish? Get Them Free Using An Antenna.

CBS_logo-1024x282-warp1Are you potentially going to miss the NFL game on Thanksgiving between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams because of the carriage dispute between CBS and Dish? Try using an antenna to get the local CBS stations for free over-the-air.

All you need is an antenna and TV with a digital tuner (most new TVs have this) or an older TV or monitor with a digital converter box. You simply plug the antenna into the back of your TV’s coaxial connection, or, if your TV has a digital converter box attached just plug the antenna into that coaxial connection first, then into your TV.

Once everything is connected, select the TV or Antenna input on your TV (not HDMI, Cable, or DVD Player). Then, go to your TV setup menu and find the channel setup. You can manually tune-in to a station or have your TV autoscan and find all the available channels that are available over-the-air in your area.

You should be able to get all the major networks in high definition including CBS, ABC, NBC, and FOX. PBS and the CW also broadcast in HD, as well as some other local networks. If you can’t tune-in to CBS, try relocating your antenna or connecting to a rooftop antenna if you have one.

TV signals are digitally transmitted over the air and can be captured by an antenna. But the signals can also be obstructed by geography, buildings, walls and other obstacles. A rooftop antenna works the best, but many times a simple wall or table-top antenna will work just as well.

For more detailed instructions on how to set up your TV to get channels over-the-air, refer to our article How To Cut-the-Cord and Watch Free HD Channels Over-the-Air.
