  27. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<img src="/img/how_to_install_an_outdoor_digital.jpg" alt="How to Install an Outdoor" align="left" /><p>It depends on your situation; factors determining what type of antenna depend on the distance and direction from the TV station transmitters to your home. Other factors include the transmitter's power and tower height and any obstacles (hills, buildings, etc..) between the tower and your antenna. To help mitigate these factors we offer indoor/outdoor and multi-directional antennas to fit your situation. To help you figure out what best fits your need use our Antenna Finder located on our homepage. Do I need an indoor or outdoor antenna? Good question, answer depends on your situation. The main factors determining reception are the distance and direction from the TV station transmitters to your home. Other factors include the transmitter's power and tower height and any obstacles (hills, buildings, etc..) between the tower and your antenna. If you live within a few miles of the transmitter, and the signal path is relatively unobstructed, you may be able to get adequate reception using an indoor antenna. But as you move farther away, getting usable signal strength becomes trickier. This is where careful antenna selection and installation become essential. General rule of thumb, the larger an antenna's surface area is, the greater the signal it will provide. Outdoor antennas typically are larger in size and provide greater access to unobstructed signals potentially blocked by walls, furniture, people, etc? so they tend to outperform indoor antennas. However not everybody has the ability to install or hook up to a roof-top or attic mounted outdoor antenna. Indoor antennas provide a nice alternative as they are generally small, designed to be placed on or near your TV and can work just as well in certain situations. Indoor antennas can also be amplified to boost signal to enhance performance. Refer to our antenna finder in the top left corner of this page to help you in find the right antenna for your situation. Do I need an amplifier for my antenna? One way to help antennas overcome size or height disadvantages, or otherwise enhance signal gain, is through the use of an amplifier. The amplifier can be built in as it is in many indoor antennas, or it can be a separate device that installs in-line between the antenna and TV. An amplifier that installs on an outdoor antenna or mast is often called a preamplifier or "preamp." RCA also has innovated the amplification process in antennas with SmartBoost™ technology. SmartBoost™ offers precise amplification that allows TV tuners to pick up and amplify the right TV signals, unlike competitors amplifiers that also amplify background broadcast noise. What does passive and active mean? A passive antenna has no active amplifier parts, it is just an antenna. An active antenna includes a preamplifer or amplifier to increase the gain of the antenna, but it can also refer to an electronic means to tune or match the antenna.</p>]]></content:encoded>

  36. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<img src="/img/a_new_box_from_sling_tv.jpg" alt="Apple makes login a breeze" align="left" /><p>With PlayStation Vue having become available nationwide last month, Sling TV is suddenly facing much stiffer competition than it has to date. It’s clear that the service is going to have to offer something new in order to keep adding subscribers, and retain its current customers, and it seems that the company’s strategy revolves around local channels. A new box could be on the way that would combine over-the-air (OTA) local channels with the Sling TV streaming experience, according to sources speaking to Dave Zatz of Zatz Not Funny. The box goes by the name AirTV and is a collaboration between the Dish-owned Sling TV and Echostar’s Sling Media. Related: ESPN planned an escape route from Sling TV, but so far hasn’t used it Local TV channels have been a problem for both Sling TV and PlayStation Vue, because of the licensing deals required with each individual local affiliate. Because the AirTV would simply take the freely available OTA channels, however, this would avoid those licensing fees while providing a more streamlined experience than the combination of a streaming box and an antenna plugged straight into the television. Users would simply attach their own antenna to the AirTV, which would have both streaming hardware and an OTA tuner, which would then make this available to the Sling TV app on your own hardware. It remains to be seen exactly how the OTA channels would be presented within the Sling TV interface — obviously some of the more advanced features would be lacking — but for users who are just looking for the local news or similar programming, it would likely be good enough. The AirTV may be just the start of Sling Media’s plans, as Zatz’s sources say that multiple Slingbox products could be on the way. There is currently no word on when any of these products, including the AirTV, will be available, or even if they will be available. Sling TV has yet to make any sort of announcement, and there has been no official confirmation of this project being in the works. And unless specific deals are made, this move could upset Sling TVs current partners, so the service will likely tread very carefully until all the bases have been covered. Related: Sling TV’s new $20 bundle features Fox, but omits ESPN Earlier this week, Sling TV made a somewhat confusing move with the addition of multiple Fox channels, only available in a package separate from its initial Best of Live TV package. Customers now face a choice as to which local channels they want. If or when the AirTV arrives, this would provide a solution to that problem.</p>]]></content:encoded>

We’re going to run through the simplest fixes for hooking your TV up to the internet. ‘ Smart TV ‘ is the term for any TV that has built-in internet access. This connection to the internet allows the TV to work with a range of online services like live streaming, on-demand video, social media and applications. SMART TVs have the ability to connect to the internet (via WiFi or Ethernet) and process the incoming information on their operating system like a basic computer. A non-SMART TV (or Dumb TV) doesn’t have these features, so requires help from an external source. Turning a Dumb TV into a SMART TV requires an external device to access the internet and process the incoming information. The online content is then sent from the streaming player to be displayed on your TV. All you need is a streaming device and broadband internet connection (ideally over 2mbps) with either an or . A or combination is always handy to transfer the image from the device to the TV. Media boxes and streaming players are internet-enabled devices with built-in preset channels and applications. Think of them like a Freeview box that hooks up to your WiFi to stream content rather than using an aerial connection. All you need to do is plug the device into a TV, usually through the HDMI port, and power it up via a USB or wall socket. The device then works as a mini computer to process the incoming internet signal and link it to the built-in apps and channels. The preset channels vary from each device but the majority tend to have a plethora of big names like Netflix, Lovefilm, HULU, BBC iPlayer, 4oD and ITV Player The is currently one of the more popular streaming players as it has huge database of programs, channels and apps. Other devices include and the . Laptop or Computer Connection The crudest but most easily available option is a simple link from your laptop or computer to a TV. Internet enabled computers have access to the largest variety of content, so linking it to the TV gives you a huge choice of media right at your fingertips; even if it is a little cumbersome. The best way to link a TV with a laptop or computer is via a as it will carry both the audio and video signals digitally down one cable. If you don’t have a HDMI connection, it’s also possible to link via VGA and audio cable combination. Games Consoles and Smart Players The last generation of games consoles arguably began the media streaming revolution. Both the Xbox 360 and PS3 could stream online programmes direct to your TV. The next generation (PS4 and XboxOne) can also connect your TV to the web. Consoles work in a similar way to streaming players with built-in apps and set channels for each manufacturer. Connect them via HDMI for best results. players often use the exact same display format as their counterparts, the SMART TVs, so can be a cheaper option than buying a brand new SMART TV. It’s also worth noting these players can have three devices rolled into one: SMART TV, DVD/Blu-Ray and Media Player. TV Dongles work like a mini version of a streaming player. They plug directly into your TV and are usually powered via USB or HDMI. The advantage of a dongle is that everything you need is onboard: power, HDMI/USB and internet connection. This makes them super compact; usually the size of a flash drive. Google’s is currently the most popular dongle format. is a little different to a TV dongle as it actually runs a version of the Android Mobile operating system on your TV. It basically makes your TV look like a giant tablet, which means you can theoretically use any app you can get on an Android device on your Android TV. You can install various official and third-party apps, ranging from Netflix to Hulu to Youtube, as well as games, music and social software.</p>]]></content:encoded>

Below are some recommendations for the best antennas to use based on your distance from our tower in order to get the best picture possible. The first step is to calculate the distance of your TV from our transmitter. Here is how to get the most accurate distance… - Calculate Your Distance From Our Transmitter – Go to and use the following location information: News On 6, KOTV - Distance is calculated from the intersection of the Muskogee Turnpike and Oak Grove Road/101st Street near Oneta, and your home. Tulsa CW, KQCW - Distance would be calculated from a point 1 mile north of the intersection of Highway 16 and County Road N320, between Taft, OK and Winchester, OK, and your home. The next step is to select your antenna from the following choices: - If you are within 25 to 30 miles of the transmitter: NOTE: To be used WITHOUT included amplifier! - If you are within 30 to 50 miles of the transmitter: - If you are 50 to 80+ miles from the transmitter: Connecting the antenna and some other helpful tips. - To connect your new antenna, you can use coaxial cable like this: - If you need antenna aiming information, you can go here for assistance: - NOTE: Amplifiers are not generally recommended except in areas beyond 75 miles from the transmitter.</p>]]></content:encoded>
