Where do you broadcast?
In addition to cable and satellite systems, KXII’s family of channels is available for free over-the-air. The information below is intended to help you locate and enjoy these channels. KXII is run off of two main transmitters in Southern Oklahoma just off of highway 377 in Madill (see maps). In addition, a low power transmitter is in Eastern Texas in Paris. In the digital TV world, one ‘signal’ can feed several high definition channels. KXII Channel 12 transmits CBS, FOX, MyNetwork, ION, GRIT, and Circle TV on Hi-VHF Channel 12.
While these transmitters cover a very broad area of Southern Oklahoma and some of North Texas, your proximity to them will determine your ability to pull in a viewable signal. To do so, you’ll need a television and an antenna. Some viewers may be able to pull in a signal using the set-top “rabbit ears” type of antenna. Others may require a larger rooftop antenna, which should be aimed in the direction of the transmitter you are trying to access. In either case, a signal amplifier may also increase your chances of pulling in a viewable signal. The following are maps and details of our transmitters and where to point your antenna.
For more in depth and detail information regarding the signals, just click the maps.

KXII-TV continued to maintain an analog signal to viewers in Texoma on analog channel 12. That signal was shut off in July of 2018. We recommend a signal test to ensure you’ll be able to pull in a viewable signal.

I’ve rescanned but am still not getting KXII’s CBS , FOX , MyTV, GRIT or ION. You may need to do what’s called a ‘clean scan’:
- Unplug antenna cable from tuner/TV
- Run a rescan
- Reboot TV
- Plug cable back in
- Run another rescan
