About this app

Let Winegard® keep you connected while at home, tailgating, trucking, or RVing by helping you view your favorite shows with this smart TV Signal Finder app with augmented reality.

Finding the available TV satellites and free over-the-air HDTV towers for your geographic location has never been easier. The smart Winegard TV Signal Finder app makes it simple to determine the correct position of your antenna to receive the available signals. This app uses your current location to search for the available signals for your favorite channels. Avoid obstructions with the augmented reality (AR) view.

Dual-mode app allows you to find free HDTV TV Towers with the Antenna Pointer mode or to locate TV satellites per provider with the Satellite Pointer mode:

- Antenna Pointer - Use the top-down map view to locate all HDTV TV towers closest to your address or GPS location. Eliminate signal obstructions such as trees, hills, and buildings by switching to the AR view. Simply point your phone to the horizon and rotate 360 degrees to bring into view your desired TV tower and find the best location to point your antenna. The number displayed above a tower indicates the number of channels available. Tap the tower icon to see full channel details.

- Satellite Pointer - Use the AR view to locate DISH, DIRECTV, BellTV, or Shaw Direct satellites available for your mobile antenna. Simply point your phone at the southern sky to locate your target satellites and stay clear of signal obstructions such as trees and buildings. Azimuth and elevation pointing look angles are provided for easy pointing and setup of manual antennas.

- Augmented reality technology
- Compatible with auto-point or manual-point antennas
- Compatible with DISH, DIRECTV, BellTV, and Shaw Direct antennas
- Satellite azimuth and elevation pointing look angles
- Current FCC OTA TV tower information, channels, call signs, networks
- Distance to HDTV towers

This app requires the use of the camera, GPS, and compass in your smartphone. Compass accuracy is based on calibration and distance from large objects that may cause magnetic interference.

Works great. Much better than other sat location applications. Used it to locate dish sats and local OTA channels in central florida and it was spot on. Best part is it is not loaded trackers that collects and sells personal data. The only part I don't like is it forces google location services on if you don't enable GPS only location in advance. Update: application quit working. Cleared cache, data, rebooted and reinstalled. App can not find my location even when I manually set it.

App worked fine for a couple of weeks then froze up. After several attempts to restart it, I decided to uninstall it and re-install. Get blank screen for Terms of Service and cannot proceed. Only option available is Decline. Update: Problem was corrected and app is working properly again. Thanks Winegard.

Broke after update. Used to work well. Not anymore. Now it will open but when I select Satellite finder it goes to a loading page and gets stuck there. I uninstalled, reinstalled and now it opens to a Terms and Conditions page which is blank and won't let me hit accept to move on. This sucks because this was a very useful app. Do better Winegard!!
