Finding TV Channels with Google Maps

TV Fool - TV Coverage Browser

TV Fool have created a Google Map to help you find all the available TV channels for your location. The map also shows the direction of transmitters in range to help you point your antenna.

To use the map just enter your address. The map will then display your location and list the available TV stations under the map. If you are unhappy with the position of the map marker you can drag it to the correct position. Each time you move the pointer, the list of channels and their predicted signal strengths will be updated automatically. It is also possible to change the height of the antenna.

Listed below the map are the transmitters within range of your location. If you select any of the transmitters, the map will load a coverage map overlay for that station and also display an information window with additional details about the selected transmitter.
