COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Did you know that you can watch WTVM News Leader 9 on your TV without paying for cable? It is true! You can watch our signal for free by setting up an antenna to receive our “off-air” digital signal.
With a digital television set, you can purchase and set up an antenna, then go through television menu options to “antenna setup: Digital.” The exact wording will differ based on the TV, so check your manual for your specific TV.
Follow These Simple Steps to Set Up Your New Antenna
- Make sure you have a VHF/UHF antenna connected to your TV.
- Go to your TV menu.
- Select “Channel Setup” (or similar).
- Choose “Antenna” and/or “Air."
- Run “Auto-program."
- Your TV may take 3 to 15 minutes as it searches for channels in your area.
If your television is not digital, but you have a digital set-top box, refer to your set-top box product manual to learn how to add channels.
