Receiving WSKG TV by antenna

As many viewers are “cutting the cord” and returning to receiving TV stations by antenna, we’re hearing from more viewers who want to receive WSKG’s over-the-air signal. WSKG broadcasts on digital channel 46.1 in Binghamton and 30.1 in Corning, both of which carry three sub-channels (see below). There are several benefits to watching this way:

Picture quality is often better than cable or satellite, as those signals are digitally compressed more than the over-the-air signal… i.e. there’s more digital information in the broadcast signal
WSKG and other stations supply built-in program guides within broadcast signals that many digital TVs can receive and display
WSKG broadcasts a total of four TV channels locally: WSKG HD (our main channel), PBS Kids (making learning fun 24/7), Create (cooking, painting, travel, etc) and World (documentaries, news, etc)

ANTENNA PLACEMENT
Antenna position is critical as it affects signal strength. The location of your antenna may affect one channel more than other channels as TV towers are not necessarily located next to each other.
