Watch WWAY Free

Did you know that you can watch WWAY 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.

Many streaming services such as YouTube TV, Hulu Live, AT&T TV Now and Sling are starting to carry local broadcasting stations for CBS, NBC, Fox and ABC.

The FCC Repack for WWAY

Some local TV stations in cities across the U.S. will be changing their over-the-air broadcast frequencies between now and July 2020. As the country moves through ten phases of the "broadcast repack," some stations are switching their frequencies to make more airwaves or "spectrum" available for wireless broadband and other uses.

People who watch free over-the-air television with an antenna will need to rescan their TV set each time a station moves to continue receiving the local channel. No new equipment or services are required in order to keep your local channel access.

WWAY is scheduled to start its repacking process on 4/13/2017 and finish on 1/17/2020. After the repack, the RF channel (not digital) will change from 46 to 24. This means that to continue to view WWAY, you will need to rescan your TV after that scheduled completion date.

Problems Watching WWAY?

It is important to note that while we do not own the WWAY 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.
