Hawaii Broadcast Television

Network television programming on broadcast stations originate in Honolulu. They are re-transmitted to relay stations and translators on the neighbor islands. The major broadcast TV networks have local affiliates in the islands. In addition to traditional over the air broadcasts, the network stations are carried by Pay TV systems located on each island.

Television stations in Hawaii are broadcasting over the air in digital as mandated by the FCC. To receive an over the air (OTA) digital broadcast, consumers need a TV set that is capable of receiving a digital signal, or an external digital converter box plugged into an analog set. An outdoor or indoor TV antenna is also required. To check if you can receive OTA digital broadcasts, visit the Antenna Web site.

Most of the major cable television networks are receivable on Hawaii's cable television and satellite systems. Every Hawaiian Island except Niihau and Kahoolawe have access to cable TV service. Channel and network line-ups vary from system to system. Contact your local cable television company for channel and network information for your area. The dominant cable TV company in the Honolulu area is Time Warner Oceanic Cable. Go to their website to see complete lists of all the TV channels and services they offer.

Hawaiian Telcom also offers digital cable TV services.

Satellite TV is available through Dish Network and Direct TV.

CBS's reboot of "Hawaii Five-0" has been renewed for a 6th season which starts in September 2015. Viewers can watch "Hawaii Five-0" on their local CBS TV station (KGMB TV in Hawaii) as well as online at CBS.com. Re-runs of the original "Hawaii Five-0" that ran on CBS from 1968 to 1980 can be viewed on MeTV Channel 4.2 Sunday nights at 6:00 pm.

University of Hawaii Sports programming is now shown exclusively on Time Warner Oceanic Cable TV channels. Depending on the type of sport, some games air live only on pay-per-view.
