If you use an antenna to watch free over-the-air TV, it’s best to rescan often since new channels get added frequently. In addition, some OTA channels move to new channel numbers due to things like the FCC auctioning off locals like they did earlier last month.

Fox is just one network that seems to be adding a lot of new channels this year. For example, they now carry Decades TV in 12 major markets after a multi-year agreement with Fox Television Stations, LLC. This recent addition means Decades TV network is now available in 60% of the U.S. with 65 television affiliates.

“Frank Cicha and the Fox Television Stations have been terrific partners in the Movies! TV Network, and their enthusiasm for joining the Decades affiliate family has been significant,” said Neal Sabin, Vice Chairman of Weigel Broadcasting Co. “We look forward to working with the station group on this beloved network.”

Programming on Decades includes iconic series like The Best of Ed Sullivan, Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In, The Dick Cavett Show, I Love Lucy, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show and more. It also has movies, documentaries and original specials.

Decades TV launched on Fox stations earlier this year in these markets: New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, Phoenix, Detroit, Minneapolis, Austin and Gainesville.

If you live in one of these areas and want to watch Decades TV, try rescanning your antenna and see what new channels pop up.
