What type of TV signal do I need to use Simple.TV?

Last Updated: Oct 22, 2012 04:03PM PDT
Simple.TV can be used with two types of input:
  1. A rooftop or in-home antenna (a.k.a. ATSC "over-the-air")
  2. Digital basic cable (a.k.a. Clear QAM)
Note that analog basic cable is not supported at all.

You cannot use a cable or satellite box with Simple.TV, since it is designed to work with unencrypted signals. You won't be able to get HBO, Showtime, ESPN or pay-per-view channels.

But, you will typically be able to get FOX, NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, CW and many local and Spanish-language channels.
