Over-the-Air (OTA) Television

Over-the-Air (OTA) television signals, sometimes referred to as terrestrial or conventional television signals, are radio waves transmitted from high towers to aerials mounted on homes or to small set top antennas.

While virtually left for dead ten years ago, OTA television has had a renaissance in North America over the last few years after governments in Canada and the United States legislated conventional television broadcasters switch their mode of signal transmission from 1950’s era analog to 21st century digital.
