Please note: This app does not allow you to watch TV on your phone. Instead, it uses your location to find nearby over-the-air Digitial TV (DTV) and HDTV signals in the *United States* and assists you choosing an antenna and pointing it in the correct direction. Information provided by the app includes: TV channel signal strengths, compass bearings to signals (direction), distance to signal towers, TV channel numbers, RF channel numbers, elevation, and frequency bands (UHV, Hi-V, Lo-V).

User location is determined automatically via GPS or the network. Alternatively, a location can be manually entered. DTV/HDTV station data is downloaded from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The app displays nearby TV signal information in three ways:
1) A scrollable list displaying all nearby TV signals ordered from strongest to weakest.
2) A compass that displays the stations at their correct heading from the current location.
3) A map displaying the current location and the location of all nearby TV signal towers.
The app can also be used to recommend antennas for your location.

Not what I wanted to see, but what I needed to know This app made it easy for me to see that the only station I had even a hope of getting was the Boston WMUR ... and that only very weakly. In fact this simply confirmed what I'd been learning from other sources; but it was one more good piece of information. Thank you to the creator.

Figured it out Increase the timeouts for gps and station download in the settings menu and it works! Great app. Compass is flaky, but blame phone for that.

Amazing We live in a remote area of Oregon, and had been trying to get TV reception from an antenna. I wish we had downloaded this before we bought all of the equipment. I used this app, and sadly, sure enough, we only showed 3 weak signals. Great app. Works very well.
