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 cable TV systems located on each island.

Nearly all television stations in Hawaii are broadcasting over the air in digital as mandated by the FCC and Federal Government. 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. Either an outdoor or an indoor TV antenna is also required. To check whether or not you can receive a free 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.
