If you're unable to tune into PBS SoCal using an over-the-air antenna, check the channel signal strength available in your area using the FCC’s website. In order to watch any channel, the channel’s signal strength, generally, should be 75% or greater.

To check the signal strength of a PBS SoCal channel, tune into that channel and check your TV’s signal strength meter. Adjust your antenna as needed. In some cases, you may need to move your antenna to a different location.
