   Atlanta's Digital TV Channels

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


The Free Channels You Can Receive With An

Antenna from Atlanta Digital TV


  Below is a list of the over 100 FREE Digital TV channels that can possibly be received in the Atlanta, GA area with an Over-The-Air antenna all can be received if your address is in a perfect 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.  Four stations use the VHF band.  The UHF band is a ultra 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 pixilate with the sound cutting in & out. We always use a higher gain antenna than is necessary for the strongest trouble-free reception.  The HD picture will be the same not matter the digital signal strength.  

   The main Atlanta network stations in the list below are highlighted in  RED   and  most  .1  channels are in 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 or at your address.

                                                     Channel List Updated 3-28-2017

                                     Channel Reception Depends On Your Location,

                                       Antenna Range, and Station’s Coverage.

                         Low power stations may not be received in many areas

                   All stations are Uhf band except; 8.1+, 9.1+, 11.1+, 12.1+ are Vhf Hi
Duplicate channels may cover or reach other areas not covered by its other channel          

VHF-UHF TV Band Digital Television Signals can be transmitted in different TV channel bands. The Low VHF band uses channels 2-6 (not used in Atlanta).  The High VHF band uses channels 7-13.  The UHF band uses channels 14-51. The band that a station uses is based on its "RF Channel Number", which can be different from its "Virtual Channel Number" (the one that is displayed on your TV screen). The different bands behave differently when travelling through the air and trees, so depending on which frequency band a station uses, you may need a different type of antenna designed for that frequency. Atlanta needs VHF/UHF.

Depending on your location in the Atlanta area, you may or may not be able to receive some of the stations listed above. Or you may receive channels not listed above from other local markets.  Most of the station's towers are around the city of Atlanta, downtown area.  With ION's 14.1 tower near Waleska, GA on Bear Mtn. and PBS's 8.1 atop Stone Mountain.  Most antennas used today are directional and may or may not receive a station not in the front direction of the antenna.
