Re-Scan in September: Local TV stations are changing frequencies

You must re-scan some of your favorite over-the-air TV channels in September.

Many over-the-air TV channels are ‘changing frequencies’ between September and June 2020 to help open up airwaves for new high-speed wireless services, according to the FCC. Stations are transitioning in phases, and viewers will need to re-scan more than once.  The actual channel number seen by viewers will not change.

FYI: If you have cable or another content provider you are OK.

Here is a list of local channels and when you will need to rescan…

Sept. 3   WMYV My-48 

Sept. 6   UNC-TV 

Sept. 6   WXII NBC-12    www.WXII12.com/rescan

Sept. 6   WCWG CW-20

 

WGHP Fox-8: Spring 2020

WFMY CBS-2: Spring 2020

WXLV ABC-45: No change is currently planned…
