Watch WBBM-TV Free

Did you know that you can watch WBBM-TV for free just by purchasing an HD TV antenna? The best part about free over-the-air TV is that once you buy the antenna, it should last you many years and you'll never have another monthly cable TV bill again! This technology has been around since the 1940s for free public consumption, but kind of faded in the 2000s as Cable TV grew bigger and bigger. Now that Cable TV prices have reached a staggering $123 average price per US household, antenna TV is finally making a comeback!

NoCable created a nifty tool that will show you if you can get this and other local stations with an antenna, and will even recommend the best antenna for your exact home's location.

Problems Watching WBBM-TV?

It is important to note that while we do not own the WBBM-TV station, we can give you some pointers in getting the best signal with an OTA antenna.

No matter which antenna you have, there are a few tips that will help you bring in the best reception. Keep in mind, that every home is different in terms of terrain, obstacles and installation details that may impact your actual reception quality.

  • Put the antenna as high as possible.
  • Keep it away from thick, heavy or metal obstacles.
  • Rescan.
  • Make small changes in orientation, position, height or direction. Small changes make huge differences.
  • Make sure the antenna is generally pointing the correct direction.
