Best TV Antenna for Houston, TX Digital TV Stations


A guide to Houston free TV stations. Availability, reception maps, best TV antenna type

Watch Free HDTV in Houston


The Best choice for free digital - HDTV -TV Antenna reception for the Houston area is the EZ-HD or the HD Stacker antennas.

Here's why:

The Houston free to air TV is one of the best free TV markets in the entire Country. There are nearly 100 free channels available. All of the major network channels are available (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, ION, CW) plus dozens of sub channels to numerous to mention. Totaling almost 100 channels.

There are 3 major channels in Houston broadcasting VHF TV signals. This is important because most antennas available today are designed for UHF signals and perform poorly for the reception of VHF signals. The 3 major channels are CBS 11, ABC 13 and PBS 8. In addition the above channels provide about 20 sub channels all VHF signals.  


Be aware that most antennas on the market today claim to be VHF capable when in fact they're not.


Just because I say it, Doesn't make it true.
If you're in doubt I suggest you contact the station engineer at any of the above stations to verify the information on this page.

The EZ-HD and the HD Stacker antennas is the perfect choice for digital/HDTV reception in and around the Houston area. The antennas is designed and tuned specifically for the digital channels in the Houston TV market.

The both antennas eliminate pixelation (digital signal drop) that so many times accompanies digital reception when using compact antennas.

One thing that makes the EZ-HD and the HD Stacker antennas so special is its ability to reject interfering signals from the sides and rear of the antenna called front to back ratio. In the Houston area, interfering reflected signals are the number one cause of poor reception. As you may know the Houston transmitting towers are all located South and a little West of the City. All you do is aim the narrower end of the antenna at the transmitters (see direction chart below) and the antenna does the rest.

The Houston TV stations reception map below is compiled from hundreds of actual customer reports using either the EZ HD or the HD Stacker antennas. If the antenna location is inside of the Green circle use the EZ HD antenna. If the antenna location is outside of the Green circle within the Blue circle use the HD Stacker antenna. This is a Conservative map. TV reception from Houston TV stations outside of the Blue circle is possible but can be hit and miss no matter what antenna is used for reception. Both the EZ HD and the HD Stacker antennas have been physically fine tuned for optimum reception of the Houston area TV stations digital TV signal frequencies.

The EZ HD and the HD Stacker antennas are physically tuned to receive the specific TV signal frequencies in use by the Houston TV stations. Inch for inch both antennas will outperform any other antenna on the market.

Note: Some Houston area residents have reported problems receiving KHOU 11.1 CBS, KTRK 13.1 ABC and KUHT 8.1 PBS when using antennas other than the EZ HD or the HD Stacker. This is due to the VHF broadcast signal frequencies in use by these stations and the use of the improper antenna to receive VHF signal frequency. Many of today's antennas (do to smaller antenna size) will not receive VHF signals. The EZ HD and the HD Stacker are designed to provide excellent performance across the entire VHF/UHF frequency spectrum in use in the Houston free to air broadcasting market.


Antenna Aiming - From the antenna installation site aim the narrower end of of the antenna at the Red X on the map above to receive the Houston TV stations

The Houston TV station reception map above is based on the use of the EZ HD and HD Stacker TV antennas installed in an outdoor location at an elevation of 20 feet above ground using proper signal amplification when required. Antennas located indoors such as attics etc. or if improper signal amplification is in use will likely experience reduced reception range. Antennas installed at an elevation greater then 20 feet above ground will likely experience increased reception range and antennas installed less then 20 feet above ground will likely experience reduced reception range. The closer the antenna installation site is to the transmitters (star) the lower the antenna can be installed to the ground.
