Question

I need help getting basic channels on my Digital Panasonic!

by crystenh / October 19, 2011 5:14 PM PDT

I just purchased an antenna to access the free basic channels on my Panasonic TV (already digital). We are able to get random stations like PBS and some Spanish ones, but the ones I really wanted (FOX, ABC, NBC, etc) says "no signal" when I tune to the station. What am I doing wrong. Did I buy the wrong kind of antenna? Can someone please help me! I am clueless!

I'm finding folk to not understand why OTA is hit or miss. It's digital they'll exclaim and want more than what their antenna can pick up.

Maybe FOX does not transmit in your area?
