SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Along with being able to watch KSLA News 12 streaming live on our mobile apps and online at ksla.com, those who wish to see CBS programming on their TV still have options.

For Dish costumers who have lost CBS programming (read more here about that), you can still set up an antenna to receive our "off-air" digital feed.

With a digital television set, you can set up an antenna, then go through television menu options to "antenna setup: Digital". The exact wording will differ based on the TV, so check your manual for your specific TV.

For those with an analog TV, an extra step is needed. A converter box can be purchased to convert the digital feed into an analog TV. Again, be sure the antenna has a strong signal, and go through the TV menu to check signal strength.
