This app is the paid, ad-free version of TV Antenna Helper FREE. If you use this app, please rate it. If you feel that you can not rate this app 4 or 5 stars, please send me an email ( and let me know why.

Please note: This app does not allow you to watch TV on your phone. Instead, it uses your location to find nearby over-the-air Digitial TV (DTV) and HDTV signals in the *United States* and assists you choosing an antenna and pointing it in the correct direction. Information provided by the app includes: TV channel signal strengths, compass bearings to signals (direction), distance to signal towers, TV channel numbers, RF channel numbers, elevation, and frequency bands (UHV, Hi-V, Lo-V).

User location is determined automatically via GPS or the network. Alternatively, a location can be manually entered. DTV/HDTV station data is downloaded from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The app displays nearby TV signal information in three ways:
1) A scrollable list displaying all nearby TV signals ordered from strongest to weakest.
2) A compass that displays the stations at their correct heading from the current location.
3) A map displaying the current location and the location of all nearby TV signals.
The app can also be used to recommend antennas for your location.

    Like others, I get "There was an error determining your location. Please try again." It does this on both of the phones I tried it on. My biggest mistake was purchasing it before I tried the free version. Now it is too late to refund it. I'm sure it

    Developer stays on top of probs to keep it working. However the FCC database is currently unavailable. (result of gov shutdown)

    The compass shakes like a leaf in the wind and don't lock on to a true magnetic position because it shakes so bad!!! All else seems to work OK. Half of this app works need to refund half of money till its finished!

    I don't use it often, but it sure does the job. Most recently used to aim an indoor antenna for my daughter when she moved.
