This app is the paid, ad-free version of TV Antenna Helper FREE. If you use this app, please rate it. If you feel that you can not rate this app 4 or 5 stars, please send me an email ([email protected]) and let me know why.

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 signals.
The app can also be used to recommend antennas for your location.

Keywords: Antenna, Television, TV, Digital TV, DTV, High Definition, HD, Hi-Def, HDTV, Signals, Over-the-air, FCC, Channels

A gamble, apparently Like others, I get "There was an error determining your location. Please try again." It does this on both of the phones I tried it on. My biggest mistake was purchasing it before I tried the free version. Now it is too late to refund it. I'm sure it is great when it works, but since it doesn't in my case it was a worthless waste of money.

Handy dandy! Developer stays on top of probs to keep it working. However the FCC database is currently unavailable. (result of gov shutdown)

Only worth 50% of price! The compass shakes like a leaf in the wind and don't lock on to a true magnetic position because it shakes so bad!!! All else seems to work OK. Half of this app works need to refund half of money till its finished!
