No CBS through HD antenna



Just moved into my house and don't have cable yet so I picked up a HD antenna. I catch most local stations but not CBS. Anybody have any ideas why?

What is your location? If you are trying to catch WAFB in Baton Rouge, it is on a VHF band and most HD antennas are UHF only.

Another option is to run an HDMI cable from your Computer to your TV....

I guess you are posting from your phone though.

Try 9.2, some HD channels can be picked up on the .2's, abc 2.2, NBC 33.2, etc

Wish the marketers would stop with the "HD antenna" scam. An antenna is an antenna, and as the previous poster pointed out, you need something that can pick up WAFB's low-powered VHF signal.

This old-reliable model will fix you right up.

Move it. I had the same problem with CBS. A few feet can make a huge difference.
