Tips for Receiving PBS North Carolina Channels Over the Air with an Antenna

As North Carolina's only statewide public media network, PBS North Carolina's 12 stations provide all of North Carolina's 100 counties with four full-time, unique broadcast program channels 24 hours a day. And PBS NC reaches 99% of NC households using television.

Sometimes, however, the quality of channels accessed for free over the air with an antenna is affected by various factors. These include electrical interference (cell towers, other home electronics), technical changes to channels and even weather conditions. You should try adjusting your antenna and perform a channel rescan (go here for step-by-step instructions). If problems persist, please review the information below.

If you live in a more rural area and you are frequently experiencing channel breakups or signal drops, you may want to try an inline RF amplifier. These are available from most major consumer electronics retailers and department stores.
