Some TV Stations Changing Frequencies

You will need to rescan your television by March 13 if you want to continue to receive over-the-air programming from your antenna on three area stations. There will be a handful of stations in various markets nationwide impacted by this. The reason is to make room for new 5G and other mobile broadband services. If you need assistance, the FCC has posted an instructional video showing you how, and information about the rescan process. Chair of the Incentive Auction Task Force at the FCC Jean Kiddoo says this will only affect you if you get television via antenna.


Because TV stations in the same area are changing frequencies at different times, it is a good habit to periodically rescan your TV. This may also help you discover new stations, which occasionally go on-air. You can find more information at, or by calling 1-800-CALLFCC, and pressing “6”.
