When will you launch Antenna TV?

Antenna TV will launch on December 17, 2012 at 5:00am.

Will 23 WeatherNow go away?

Yes. We realize more and more people are getting their weather forecasts and severe weather alerts via computers, cell phones, smart phones, tablets, etc. The weather channel audience is shrinking and those that do watch, don’t watch for long. Antenna TV will be a much better viewing experience for our viewers. We will still provide emergency weather information on the Antenna TV when it’s needed.

What channels can I receive Antenna TV on?

Over the Air – 23.2
Comcast (Freeport/Rockford) 436
Comcast (Rochelle) 247
MediaCom – 101
Charter – 970

Are there any plans to broadcast on DirecTV or Dish Network?

We’ve contacted both satellite companies and they’ve responded that they have no plans to air Antenna TV. If you are a Dish or DirecTV subscriber we suggest you call and that Antenna TV is added to their system. The number for DirecTV is 1-800-531-5000 and the number for Dish Network is 1-888-284-7116.

I'm a Dish Network or DirecTV customer, is there any other way I receive Antenna TV?

You might consider purchasing an indoor digital antenna. Depending on your TV setup, you can probably switch from your satellite service to an antenna so you can watch Antenna TV over the air.

I watch the Rockford IceHogs games on 23 WeatherNow. Will I still be able to watch them when the station becomes Antenna TV?

Yes. Our IceHogs broadcast schedule will not change. You can still catch all their games as well as their weekly highlight show on all the over the air and cable channels listed above.
