This article attempts to show a sequential chart of usage/availability of the broadcast radio frequency spectrum in and around Bloomington. Frequencies that are broadcasting from Monroe County are highlighted in bold. Note that to be in this list, the frequency must be available in some area of Monroe County under clear weather conditions. Sometimes stormy weather can cause far away signals to go outside the normal broadcast range.

Comcast provides cable service to Bloomington, expanding the availability beyond broadcast. For a list of those channels, see Comcast Cable channel list for Bloomington.
