Watching WLMB by antenna is perhaps the best way to watch this station. With new Digital TV technology, you receive perfect digital quality pictures and audio and perhaps best of all there are no monthly subscription costs.  However, without the proper antennas and antenna placement, watching WLMB by antenna may be very choppy or possibly not even an option.  Also, the farther away your home or business is from our transmitter, the harder and more expensive the initial set up costs can become to receive a quality digital WLMB signal.
