Winegard OTA TV Signal Finder App


This is a GREAT App - i highly recommend this to help install a new OTA antenna, or point your existing OTA antenna. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of Meters to help you point an OTA antenna these days, except for very expensive commercial units. But this App is the next best thing. Go here to download the App or to learn more:

Let Winegard® keep you connected while at home, tailgating, trucking, or RVing by helping you view your favorite shows with this smart TV Signal Finder app with augmented reality.

Finding the available TV satellites and free over-the-air HDTV towers for your geographic location has never been easier. The smart Winegard TV Signal Finder app makes it simple to determine the correct position of your antenna to receive the available signals. This app uses your current location to search for the available signals for your favorite channels. Avoid obstructions with the augmented reality (AR) view.

Dual-mode app allows you to find free HDTV TV Towers with the Antenna Pointer mode or to locate TV satellites per provider with the Satellite Pointer mode:

- Antenna Pointer - Use the top-down map view to locate all HDTV TV towers closest to your address or GPS location. Eliminate signal obstructions such as trees, hills, and buildings by switching to the AR view. Simply point your phone to the horizon and rotate 360 degrees to bring into view your desired TV tower and find the best location to point your antenna. The number displayed above a tower indicates the number of channels available. Tap the tower icon to see full channel details.

- Satellite Pointer - Use the AR view to locate DISH, DIRECTV, BellTV, or Shaw Direct satellites available for your mobile antenna. Simply point your phone at the southern sky to locate your target satellites and stay clear of signal obstructions such as trees and buildings. Azimuth and elevation pointing look angles are provided for easy pointing and setup of manual antennas.

Features:
- Augmented reality technology
- Compatible with auto-point or manual-point antennas
- Compatible with DISH, DIRECTV, BellTV, and Shaw Direct antennas
- Satellite azimuth and elevation pointing look angles
- Current FCC OTA TV tower information, channels, call signs, networks
- Distance to HDTV towers

This app requires the use of the camera, GPS, and compass in your smartphone. Compass accuracy is based on calibration and distance from large objects that may cause magnetic interference.

Winegard Company has been a leader in the design and manufacturing of quality antenna products since 1954. With over 1,000 different antenna models designed and 80 patents granted, Winegard has the solution for your antenna needs.

Winegard keeps you connected.

I find this app has limited use, so you are probably not missing much.
The satellite finder part of the app only supports subscription satellites, so it is not very useful for FTA.
As for the television part of the app, it roughly shows where a few of the towers are from my location, but I do not find much use for the television part of the app after that.

Big Cable/Satellite/Netflix does not want you to know you can get TV for Free via OTA.
