Atlanta's Digital TV Channels

Atlanta is second in the nation for the number of digital stations available


The Free Channels Can You Receive With An Antenna?


Below is a list of the 95 FREE Digital TV channels that can possibly be received in the Atlanta, GA area with an Over-The-Air antenna if in the right area. Because digital TV doesn't use as much bandwidth as the old analog TV, each station can provide more channels (sub-channels) per frequency, thus the dot or dash numbers .2 .3 .4 etc. channel numbers.  The primary channel will always be the .1.  2.1 is ABC or WSB channel 2 as you know it from cable, satellite and analog TV the dot  .1 channels are usually HD.  Some stations are low power and for a specific area like KTN Korean 47.1, is in Norcross and its signal doesn't go very far.  WANN is low power but, shares a very high major tower.  It holds its own with the high power stations in the metro Atlanta area but still its signal won't reach as far as a million watt major channel many times . Most of the major Atlanta stations are at 1 million watts power and have a strong signal around the Atlanta area and reaching well into and past the suburbs.  Sub-channels (the .2 +) allow for more content & advertising to be provided to viewers.  Most of the major stations primary channels are broadcast in HD but their sub-channels are in SD or standard definition.
 

Some of the digital stations upgrade and changing channels occasionally. Some will add new channels, move channels, and change channel numbers so you have to RE-SCAN your TV or Digital Box on a regular basis or you may not see the new sub-channels or changes some TV will add them automatically. 

Most all of the stations are transmitted using the UHF band.  Two stations use the VHF band.  The UHF band is a high frequency that has a shorter range than the VHF band.  That is why it can be tricky to receive digital TV in the Atlanta area with its hills, buildings & trees.  UHF frequencies are affected by trees, buildings, even strong winds moving tree limbs.  They kind of act like light beams traveling straight, but can be reflected in a different direction.
 

Many people who used to have an antenna on their home had the old style log periodic type all band VHF/Uhf/FM antenna with the long rods in the back and short rods in the front which, will work with digital TV, it just will not perform as well as the newer designed UHF/VHF  broad lobe antennas we use that are far better designed for the Atlanta reception area.  Plus Uhf  antennas are not as large.
 

Unlike Analog TV where you could watch a weak snowy picture with good sound,  with Digital TV you will either have a perfect watchable picture or an unwatchable picture that will pixilat with the sound cutting in & out. We always use a higher gain antenna than is necessary for the strongest trouble-free reception available. 
 

The main Atlanta network stations in the list below are highlighted in Red and most .1 channels are iin HD. These channels are a must have and any others channels received are a bonus.  Some low power channels may broadcast intermittently.  New channels can be added at any time.  Some channels are low power stations and their signal will not reach as far as the major high power stations and may not be received outside their areas.
