Can’t miss TV events to catch this fall

What are you most excited about watching this fall? Whether it’s binge-watching Halloween movies all season long, baseball, football, dramas or awards shows, with over-the-air TV, you can enjoy watching events live or pre-recorded with your DVR without having to pay for any monthly subscription fees. There is a lot of great content this time of year to look forward to, and with the right setup, you can experience crystal clear reception and all your favorite guilty pleasures—so you’ll never miss a beat.


A great way to access games is to keep an eye on your local channel listings each week.

The NFL season runs along the same timeline with games broadcast on channels such as CBS, FOX and NBC every week on Sunday afternoons and evenings. Sunday afternoon games typically start at 1 p.m., 4:05 pm or 4:25 pm ET. Night games usually kick off around 8:20 ET.
