Are these channels guaranteed to come in with the recommended antenna?
Unfortunately, they are not. While these channels appear to be within range of your home, there are many factors that can lead to poor reception such as terrain, obstacles and home construction materials. Learn more »

Do I need one antenna per TV?
For indoor antennas, you should have one antenna per TV, however sometimes you can split a strong signal effectively between two TVs. Outdoor antennas typically can support anywhere from TVs depending on the antenna model and wiring of your home.

Do I need to cancel Cable TV before trying an antenna?
No, and in fact we would suggest against it. Buy an antenna that has a free return policy so that you can return if your home is not receptive to over-the-air signals. Every home is different, so it may take some work to get good signal.

Why all the distinct types of antennas?
The distance between your home and the broadcast channels matter. Living too close and using an amplified antenna can do more harm and create static in your picture. Outdoor antennas are great when you can mount it outside.

Are there any additional fees with OTA TV?
No! This is the best part about free over-the-air TV. Once you buy the antenna, it should last you many years and you will never have another monthly cable tv bill again!

Will indoor antennas work in my basement?
Possibly. The only way to know for sure is to try it. Typically a window gives you the best chance at crystal clear reception, but other setups have been known to work as well.

Why can't I get WISH  reception from Indianapolis, IN.? The reason may surprise you.

If you have a TV antenna and can't receive WISH TV channel from Indianapolis, IN., the problem is likely the antenna not the TV station.  It doesn't matter if the antenna is an indoor, attic or roof top antenna, it's likely not designed to receive the WISH TV VHF signal. 

  • The WISH signal type is VHF.  
  • Most antennas on the market today are designed to receive UHF signals but not VHF signals. 
  • Simply put, you probably bought the wrong TV antenna. 

You can't receive a VHF TV signal using a  UHF TV antenna.

It requires two different types of antennas to receive each signal type. The VHF portion of the antenna must be considerably larger. The UHF portion of the antenna can be much smaller in size and get the same results. To properly receive both types of signals there must be two antennas combined into a single antenna output connection. One antenna receives VHF signal and one receives UHF signal. The two antenna signals are phased together creating a single VHF and UHF signal output on the antenna.   

Is the antenna truly designed to receive the WISH channel VHF signal? 

  • Does the antenna have elements protruding horizontally from the antenna? 
    No protruding elements, no VHF reception. 
  • Are the protruding elements on the antenna at least 3 feet long?
    If not, you got it, no VHF reception.

Indoor set top TV antenna.

Your best chance at receiving the WISH TV signal using an indoor antenna is good old fashioned rabbit ears. The extending poles (rabbit ears) are the VHF portion of the antenna. Without these elements the WISH TV signal travels past the antenna with very little signal received as it does so. 

A paper clip becomes a VHF TV antenna. 

Hopefully you have learned, just because I say a paper clip is a VHF antenna, doesn't make it a VHF antenna. You should now be able to recognize antennas making  false claims about VHF TV reception.  Just because an antenna claims to be capable of VHF reception, doesn't make it so. 

Below are two examples of excellent TV antenna design that will receive both VHF and UHF digital TV signals equally well.
Smaller antennas of similar design are available for short and medium range VHF and UHF TV reception.

WISH-TV

CW affiliate in Indianapolis

Television station in Indiana, United States

WISH-TV, virtual channel 8 (VHFdigital channel 9), is a CW-affiliated television station licensed to Indianapolis, Indiana, United States. Locally owned by Circle City Broadcasting, it is part of a duopoly with Marion-licensed MyNetworkTV affiliate WNDY-TV (channel 23); it is also sister to Indianapolis-licensed low-powered, Class AgetTV affiliate WIIH-CD (channel 17). The stations share studios on North Meridian Street (at the north end of the Television Row section) on the near north side of Indianapolis; WISH-TV and WNDY-TV also share transmitter facilities on Walnut Drive in the Augusta section of the city's northwest side (near Meridian Hills).

History[edit]

Early history[edit]

The station first signed on the air on July 1, [3] at &#;pm. Founded by C. Bruce McConnell—owner of WISH radio ( AM, now WTLC)—it was the third television station to sign on in the Indianapolis market, after WFBM-TV (channel 6, now WRTV), which signed on in May and Bloomington-licensed WTTV (channel 10, now on channel 4), which signed on six months later in November WISH-TV originally operated as a primary ABC affiliate with a secondary affiliation with DuMont Television Network and NBC.[3] WISH-TV originally transmitted its signal from a tower it shared with WISH radio; the following year, the station constructed a 1,foot (&#;m) transmitter tower, which allowed the station to improve its signal coverage in the market.

CBS affiliate[edit]

In , McConnell sold the station to the Indiana Broadcasting Company, the broadcasting subsidiary of J.H. Whitney & Company and owners of WANE-TV in Fort Wayne. The new owners persuaded CBS to move its programming to channel 8,[3] taking that affiliation from WFBM. Conversely that same year, WISH-TV lost the ABC affiliation to WTTV; this resulted in WLBC-TV, channel 49 in Muncie (whose allocation is now occupied by PBS member station WIPB) serving as the de facto ABC affiliate for the northern part of the market as WTTV's signal did not extend very far north outside of Indianapolis's northern suburbs as its transmitter was located farther south than the market's other stations. Also in , WISH became one of the first television stations in the United States to install a videotape machine.

WISH-TV's studio facility on Meridian Street.

Indiana Broadcasting became the Corinthian Broadcasting Corporation in , with WISH-TV serving as the company's flagship station. From to , it was an affiliate of the NTA Film Network. Corinthian merged with Dun & Bradstreet in Dun & Bradstreet sold its entire broadcasting unit to the Belo Corporation in February However, the merger put Belo two stations over the television ownership limits that the Federal Communications Commission had in effect at the time. As a result, the company sold WISH-TV and WANE to LIN Broadcasting (the predecessor of LIN Media) the following month in March LIN was headquartered in Indianapolis for many years, with WISH-TV serving as that company's flagship television property; the company eventually moved its headquarters to Providence, Rhode Island in the late s, resulting in WPRI-TV replacing WISH as LIN's flagship station. LIN later acquired low-power independent station W11BV (channel 11, now WIIH-CD channel 17) in In , WISH-TV relocated its transmitter to a new tower built in the Augusta section of Indianapolis.

WISH-TV signed on its digital signal on VHF channel 9 on December 17, ;[4] two days later on December 19, the station broadcast its first program in high definition when it broadcast an NFL game telecast in the format. In , WISH-TV began handling the master control operations of WANE-TV and fellow sister station WLFI-TV in Lafayette. The hub expanded to include the Buffalo duopoly of WIVB-TV and WNLO in October, with other LIN-owned stations gradually being added to the WISH hub by the summer of [5]

On February 10, , the Paramount Stations Group subsidiary of Viacom sold UPN affiliate WNDY-TV (channel 23, now a MyNetworkTV affiliate) as well as its Columbus, Ohio sister station WWHO to LIN TV for $85&#;million, creating a duopoly with WISH-TV when the sale was finalized that spring.[6] On May 18, , the LIN TV Corporation announced that it was exploring strategic alternatives that could have resulted in the sale of the company.[7]

On September 15, , LIN and Time Warner Cable entered into an impasse during negotiations to renew retransmission consent deals for some of the group's television stations. Bright House Networks, one of two major cable providers serving Indianapolis, negotiates retransmission consent contracts through Time Warner Cable. LIN TV requested compensation for carriage of its stations in a manner similar to the deals that cable networks have with pay television providers, as other broadcast station owners began to seek compensation from cable and satellite providers for their programming. The carriage agreement with Bright House expired on October 2.[8] By &#;a.m. on October 3, LIN's television stations were replaced on Time Warner Cable systems in markets where the group owns stations and where either provider operates systems with programming from other cable channels. LIN's stations (with the exception of WIIH-CA) were restored 26 days later on October 29 through a new carriage agreement reached between Time Warner Cable and LIN TV.

The station shut down its analog signal, over VHF channel 8, on June 12, , the official date in which full-power television in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal continued to broadcast on its pre-transition VHF channel 9.[9][10] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former VHF analog channel 8.

On August 7, , WISH-TV began operating a Mobile DTV feed of subchannel , which originally was only accessible via an app for BlackBerry devices.[11]

On January 29, , LIN TV filed an application to the FCC to operate a digital fill-in translator on UHF channel 17,[12] an allotment that was previously occupied by the analog signal of Class A sister station WIIH-CA; the FCC granted a construction permit to build the translator's transmitter facilities on June [13] The translator, which shares the same transmitter facility as WISH's main signal in the Augusta section of Indianapolis and began operating on January 13, , serves parts of Indianapolis that lost signal coverage after the digital transition. The translator is mapped as virtual channel 8, which results in PSIP channel duplication while tuning sequentially on digital tuners in areas that are able to receive both signals, as the translator simulcasts WISH-TV's main channel and its two digital subchannels. As mentioned above, in late March , a simulcast of WISH's main signal was added via WNDY-DT3.

On March 21, , Media General announced that it would buy LIN Media in a $&#;billion deal, described as a "merger."[14][15] The merger was completed on December [16]

CW station[edit]

On August 11, , Tribune Broadcasting announced that CW affiliate WTTV would become the market's CBS affiliate on January 1, , as part of an agreement that also renewed the CBS affiliations on Tribune-ownedstations infiveothermarkets.[17] The deal, which resulted in the end of WISH-TV's year relationship with CBS, was reportedly struck as a result of WISH station management balking at the network's demands for sharing of retransmission consent revenue from its affiliates.[18] This marked the second time in Indianapolis television history that WTTV took an affiliation from WISH, the first being ABC in

As the other major broadcast networks had existing affiliation deals with other area stations (WRTV's ABC affiliation was up for renewal around this time, though the E. W. Scripps Company reached a deal to allow WRTV and nine of the company's other stations to remain with ABC the day prior to the announcement[19]), WISH announced on December 11, , that it would become an independent station upon losing CBS, filling timeslots previously occupied by network shows with additional newscasts and an expanded inventory of syndicated talk shows, newsmagazines and sitcoms,[20] including some shows relocated from sister station WNDY-TV to make up for the loss of CBS daytime and late-night programs on channel 8's schedule and a national news program from TouchVision (the latter of which was later replaced with an additional half-hour of the station's morning newscast, Hour News 8's Daybreak, on July 13, ) to serve as a replacement for the CBS Morning News.[20][21][22]

However, on December 22, , Tribune announced that it would sell the market's CW affiliation to Media General—the deal occurred three days after the completion of the company's merger with LIN. As a result, WISH instead became a CW affiliate, in effect switching affiliations with WTTV and preventing a situation in which The CW, which WTTV originally planned on carrying over its second digital subchannel (which had previously been affiliated with This TV prior to December ), would be relegated to the lower digital subchannel tier on local cable systems and probable subjection to non-carriage by satellite providers for months until carriage agreements were struck.[23][24] The loss of WISH's CBS affiliation also affected the Media General-LIN merger, with the purchase price being lowered by $&#;million in stock, though no other factors were affected.[25]

Media General signed an agreement with Sony Pictures Entertainment to affiliate several of its stations with GetTV. WISH added the network on its .2 subchannel on February 1, [26]

Nexstar ownership[edit]

After a failed bid for Media General to merge with Meredith Corporation,[27][28]Nexstar Broadcasting acquired Media General in January The WISH-WNDY duopoly gained new sister stations in nearby markets within Indiana: the Evansville virtual duopoly of ABC affiliate WEHT and fellow CW affiliate WTVW, and the Terre Haute virtual duopoly of NBC affiliate WTWO and ABC affiliate WAWV-TV. CBS affiliate WANE-TV in Fort Wayne was the only existing sister station of WISH and WNDY that became part of the combined group, as Media General and Nexstar each sold certain Indiana stations they already owned (Nexstar's Fox affiliate WFFT-TV in Fort Wayne and Media General's two other Indiana-based CBS affiliates, WTHI-TV in Terre Haute and WLFI-TV in Lafayette to Heartland Media, and Nexstar's WEVV-TV in Evansville to Bayou City Broadcasting) to alleviate conflicts with FCC ownership rules.[29][30][31][32][33]

In late March , Media General added a i HD simulcast feed of WISH's main signal on the subchannel of WNDY-TV, mainly for the convenience of over-the-air viewers, especially those unable to receive WISH's VHF channel 9 signal due to signal limitations by way of their geographic location in proximity to the transmitter and/or a lack of an antenna able to properly receive VHF signals.[34] In January , the station converted the subchannel from a hour feed of its Doppler radar into an affiliate of the Justice Network.[35]

Sale to Circle City Broadcasting[edit]

On December 3, , Nexstar announced it would acquire the assets of Chicago-based Tribune Media—which has owned Fox affiliate WXIN (channel 59) since July and CBS affiliate WTTV since July —for $&#;billion in cash and debt. Due to FCC ownership rules, Nexstar could not retain both duopolies.[36][37][38][39] On April 8, , it was announced that Circle City Broadcasting (owned by DuJuan McCoy of Indianapolis, the then-principal owner of the aforementioned, now defunct, Bayou City Broadcasting) would acquire WISH and WNDY for $&#;million.[1][40] The sale was completed on September 19,

Programming[edit]

Sports programming[edit]

In its later years as a CBS affiliate, WISH-TV aired most Indianapolis Colts regular season games as well as any playoff games involving the team through CBS, via the network's broadcast rights to the NFL's American Football Conference. The move of Colts games to WISH-TV when CBS acquired the rights to the AFC in coincided with the debut of rookie quarterback Peyton Manning, as well as the station's coverage of the Colts' appearances in Super Bowl XLI (a victory) and Super Bowl XLIV. WISH-TV also aired Indiana Pacers games from their absorption into the NBA from until , through CBS' NBA broadcast contract. The station provided local coverage of the Pan-American Games, which were held in Indianapolis.

As a result of WISH swapping its CBS affiliation with CW affiliate WTTV in January , the station's status as the unofficial "home" station of the Colts ended after the NFL regular season. Consequently, it no longer aired any Colts related programming after the season (except for Countdown to Kickoff and possibly Huddle Up Indy), nor were WISH and WNDY affiliated with the Colts. Colts games began to air on WTTV on January 4, , when the Colts defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in the first round of the NFL playoffs. The coach's show and Colts Up Close moved to WTTV and its sister Fox affiliate WXIN (channel 59) for the NFL season.[41]

After losing CBS, WISH gradually cobbled together agreements to restore sports events onto the station's schedule to make up for both the loss of sports coverage provided by CBS as well as the absence of such content from The CW's schedule. First on February 17, , WISH signed a two-year agreement with the Indy Eleven to carry home matches from the North American Soccer League team during the and seasons; WISH replaced sister station WNDY as the Eleven's local television broadcaster, as that station carried the team's games during its inaugural season. All game telecasts and a half-hour post-game show that follows each game are produced under an outsourcing agreement with Indianapolis-based video production firm WebStream Sports. The first Indy Eleven game to air on WISH was the April 11 home season opener with the New York Cosmos.[42][43]

On March 20, , Media General announced that WISH and WNDY would become part of the Chicago Cubs and White Sox broadcast television networks and carry many of the games the teams broadcast locally in the Chicago market through ABC owned-and-operated stationWLS-TV, then-fellow CW affiliate WGN-TV and later dual CW/MyNetworkTV affiliate WPWR-TV (excluding those broadcast by the cable/satellite-only Comcast SportsNet Chicago). WISH carries a Sunday-only schedule of games due to program preemption restrictions within its CW affiliation contract, with WNDY airing the remainder of the weekday game schedule and a few Sunday games. The deal for carriage of the games in Indianapolis was required after Tribune Broadcasting discontinued airing sports events involving Chicago-area teams over its WGN America cable channel at the end of Both of Chicago's Major League Baseball teams claim Indianapolis as part of their broadcasting territories, sharing the market with the Cincinnati Reds, which have games that originate on Fox Sports Ohio carried by sister network Fox Sports Indiana.[44]

On June 30, , WISH reached an agreement to carry Atlantic Coast Conferencecollege football and basketball games produced by Raycom Sports (via the syndicator's ACC Network service) effective with the –16 ACC football season, as Indianapolis is in the ACC market covered by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The first ACC game to air on the station through this deal was the September 5 game between the Wofford Terriers and Clemson Tigers.[45][46] On October 6, Media General announced that WISH would carry NHL games involving the Chicago Blackhawks produced by WGN-TV, with an initial slate of 19 Saturday and Sunday games during the –16 season starting with the team's October 10 game against the New York Islanders. This marked the first time outside of Canadian cable distribution quirks involving WGN-TV that WGN's Blackhawks coverage aired outside the Chicago market (WGN America never carried Blackhawks telecasts).[47][48]

News operation[edit]

WISH-TV presently broadcasts 76 hours of locally produced newscasts and programs each week (with 12½ hours each weekday, six hours on Saturdays and 7½ hours on Sundays); weekdays include Indy Style from 10 to 11 a.m. and Sundays include Pet Pals TV at 10 a.m. followed by Great Day TV with Patty Spitler at &#;a.m. and Sportslocker at &#;p.m. and Indy Sports Tonight, which airs every night at &#;p.m. In regards to the number of hours devoted to news programming, it is the second-highest newscast output of any broadcast television station in the entire United States, behind Los Angeles CW affiliate KTLA (channel 5), which broadcasts 82 hours, 5 minutes of local newscasts per week; it also has the highest newscast output of any single television station in the Indianapolis market and the state of Indiana.

In , WISH-TV became the first television station in the market to provide extensive live coverage of a major local news event, when it covered the deadly explosion at the Fairgrounds Coliseum. WISH-TV's newscasts were the highest-rated in the Indianapolis market from the mids until WTHR overtook it for the No. 1 position in The station's ratings success was largely attributed to the longevity of most of its news staff, some of whom have been at the station for over 20 years. Mike Ahern was the station's main weeknight news anchor as well as the de facto face of its newsroom for more than 30 years (the longest tenure of anyone in Indianapolis television history); he joined channel 8 as a reporter in and was promoted to lead anchor in , where he remained until his retirement from the anchor chair on December 1, (Ahern later hosted sister station WNDY's now-cancelled interview program One on One). Debby Knox joined Ahern as co-anchor on the weeknight newscasts in and remained with the station until she retired on November 26, Stan Wood served as the station's main weather forecaster from the s until , while Patty Spitler served as anchor of the noon newscast and entertainment reporter from to Lee Giles, who left the station in , was one of the longest-tenured news directors in local broadcasting.

For a time during the s, WISH-TV advertised that "more people in Central Indiana get their local news from Hour News 8 than from any other source" at the close of many of its newscasts and in promos for its newscasts. The station's local newscasts are currently at a distant second place behind WTHR in most timeslots, except during the 5 to &#;p.m. period on weeknights, when both stations maintain a much tighter viewership margin. However, due to the strength of CBS' prime time lineup in the s and s (as well as the fact its late news served the lead-in for Indianapolis native David Letterman's late night talk show on the network, the Late Show), WISH regained the lead in the &#;p.m. slot. The station's "I-Team 8" investigative reports have earned the station numerous journalism awards, including Regional Emmy, Peabody[49] and Edward R. Murrow Awards (the station was awarded the latter in and ). In , the Indiana Associated Press Broadcast Association honored WISH-TV with the "Outstanding News Operation" and "Outstanding Weather Operation" designations.

In , WISH-TV implemented the "Hour News Source" concept that was originally developed that year by WEWS-TV in Cleveland; the format, which began spreading to other television stations nationwide around that timeframe, involves the production of second news updates that air at or near the top of every hour during local commercial break inserts – even during primetime network and overnight programming – in addition to the station's long-form newscasts in regularly scheduled timeslots. The station continues to use the format to this day (which is reinforced in the branding that the station has used for its news programming off-and-on since , Hour News 8, and all but one of the varying news slogans it had used from to ), even as stations elsewhere had discontinued the hourly update format by the early s. However, as of June 4, , WISH-TV has dropped the Hour moniker from its newscast name (the moniker part of its slogan has been dropped for years). Now, as of June , Grand Rapids, Michigan sister station WOOD-TV (which still brands its newscasts as Hour News 8) and KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (which is the only station left to use the Hour News Source as its slogan) are the only remaining U.S. television stations that still use the "Hour News Source" concept in some form.

For many years, the news themes that WISH-TV had commissioned have incorporated components (including the eight-note musical signature) from the song "Back Home Again in Indiana"; these include two custom packages by Stephen Arnold Music – "Newsleader" (used from to ) and the "WISH-TV News Music Package," a customized version of Arnold's "Counterpoint" package (used from to ) – and an alteration of the V.3 package from Music's "In-Sink" (used from to ).[50] The composed custom package "A New Wish," introduced on September 5, , was the first theme used by the station in 21 years to omit compositional ties to "Back Home Again in Indiana". As of June 4, , WISH-TV has returned to using the "In-Sink" news music package containing the "Back Home Again in Indiana" melody. On February 28, , shortly after LIN TV announced its purchase of channel 23, WISH-TV took over production of WNDY's 10 p.m. newscast from WTHR, which had produced the program from its inception on March 16, ; this partnership expanded to include an hour-long extension of WISH's weekday morning newscast at 7 a.m., which debuted on January 5,

On September 8, , WISH-TV became the second television station in Indiana to begin broadcasting its local newscasts in high definition; the WNDY newscasts were included in the upgrade. On September 9, , WISH-TV added a half-hour to its weekday morning newscast at &#;am, becoming the last English-language news-producing station in the market to expand its morning newscast to a pre-5 a.m. timeslot (WTHR had an eight-year head start, expanding its morning newscast into the slot in ; that station was later joined by WXIN in and WRTV in WTTV became the last station in the market, again, to air a pre-5 a.m. timeslot when their news operation debuted in ).

When it became an affiliate of The CW on January 1, , WISH-TV became one of three CW affiliates in the Eastern Time Zone (the others being WPIX in New York City and WCCB in Charlotte) with a fully functioning independent news department. It expanded its news programming by 20 hours (increasing its weekly total from 34 to 54 hours a week). Most existing newscasts were retained, though the &#;a.m. and &#;p.m. newscasts it produced for WNDY moved to channel 8 (the former of which is part of an expansion of Daybreak that extended the weekday edition of the program by two hours and the weekend editions by one), while the noon newscast expanded to one hour and a &#;p.m. newscast on weeknights was added.[51][52] The weekend and &#;p.m. newscasts were also shortened to a half-hour, with the Sports Locker being moved to bookending the latter and the &#;p.m. news on Sunday nights, and a new sports program (Indy Sports Tonight) taking up 15 minutes of the &#;p.m. news.

Notable former on-air staff[edit]

Local Weather Station[edit]

WISH-TV originally launched digital subchannel in as an over-the-air feed of its hour weather service, LWS (or "Local Weather Station"); formatted similarly to the now-defunct SkyTrak Weather Network service previously operated by WTHR and its low-power sister station WALV-CD (channel 46), the service also began to be simulcast on low-power sister station WIIH-CA on January 1, , after that station lost its Univision affiliation; WIIH-CA dropped the service when it was converted into a fill-in translator of WISH-TV in January Until February , Channel 8 carried a half-hour simulcast of the LWS service on its primary channel on Friday nights/early Saturday mornings.
