What is Antenna TV? How can I watch Antenna TV?

Staff Writer

Tribune Broadcasting and Sony launched Antenna TV, a classic television and general entertainment movie network, as a digital multicast on Tribune's broadcast stations beginning January 1, 2011. Tribune also distributes Antenna TV beyond the Tribune station group. KTLA began airing Antenna TV on our sub-channel 5.2 on January 1, 2011 at 10:00pm. KTLA does not own or operate Antenna TV and we do not create the programming lineup.

KTLA broadcasts Antenna TV on its digital subchannel 5.2 in the Los Angeles market only. If you are watching Antenna TV in another state, please contact your own local station that provides you with the Antenna TV signal to answer your questions.

Antenna TV's primary focus is classic television shows which including: Adam-12, Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, All In The Family, Bachelor Father, Benny Hill Show, Burns And Allen Show, Circus Boy, Dennis The Menace, Dragnet, Father Knows Best, The Flying Nun, Gidget, Good Times, Hazel, Here Comes The Brides, Iron Horse, It Takes A Thief, The Jack Benny Show, Leave It To Beaver, Mad About You, Maude, McHale's Navy, The Monkees, The Nanny, News Radio, The Partridge Family, The Ropers, Sanford And Son, Soap, S.W.A.T., Three's Company, Three's A Crowd, The Three Stooges, Too Close For Comfort, and Totally Tuned In, They run a few classic movies during the night to fill in the time.

Antenna TV is currently airing programming from the Sony library and thus does not have access to all old programming and cannot take requests. There are lots of other networks out there that own the rights to some of the other programs.

Visit their website at for more information and for TV listings to see when your favorite shows are airing in your time zone. You can also contact Antenna TV through their website.

If you use a converter box and are not seeing Antenna TV 5.2 or THIS TV 5.3 subchannels, please try doing a channel rescan.

Antenna TV is currently available on these providers:

AT & T U-Verse - not availableCharter Communications on channel 317Cox Communications on channel 815Direct TV - not availableDISH Network - not availableMediacom, LLC on channel 311Time Warner Cable on channel 139Verizon Fios on channel 466

Not all of the programming on Antenna TV has closed captioning. Older shows are exempt from the rule and new networks get 4 years to become fully compliant. Antenna TV is working to have more shows and movies closed captioned, but it will take time to do this.

KTLA is not allowed to air Married With Children because another station in LA owns the current broadcast rights. KTLA is legally required to cover Married With Children with a repeat of its KTLA 5 News whenever the show is broadcast. KTLA chooses to cover Maude with a repeat of our KTLA 5 News at this time to provide viewers an opportunity to see our news coverage at a different time that may be more convenient.
