How Can I Watch News Channel Nebraska?

Thank you for watching News Channel Nebraska (NCN) Channel 48 in the Columbus area. We serve a very large geographic area and there are multiple ways to watch NCN48. We’ll make it simple for you to connect with us to catch up with the latest news, weather, information and sports.

Watch NCN with an Over-the-Air antenna:

In the immediate Columbus area, you can get us in High Definition over-the-air on Channel 48.  All you need is an antenna that connects with a TV made after 2009. If your TV is older than 2009, you’ll need a digital converter which you can buy at an electronics store.  After your TV is hooked up to an antenna you need to auto-tune your TV. Now that we have digital TV everywhere, auto-tuning means that you tell your TV to go out and find the digital channels that your antenna can pick up over-the-air.   For directions click this link: get free tv
