If you watch TV for free using an antenna tune in, WVIA-TV, WVIA PBS Kids and WVIA Create stations are moving frequencies on December 4th 2017 at 12 p.m. By law, nearly 1,000 TV stations nationwide must change frequencies to make room for wireless services.
What does this mean for you?
If you are using an antenna to watch TV, you will need to rescan your TV on December 4th, 2017 after 12p.m.. when we move to a new frequency. Once you rescan, you’ll still find us at the same place on channel 44.1 for WVIA-HD, 44.2 for WVIA PBS Kids 24/7, and 44.3 for WVIA Create.
Rescanning is simple and requires no new equipment or services. Select “scan” or “autotune” from your TV or converter box menu. Instructions are often found by pressing the “set-up” or “menu” buttons on your remote control.
If you watch TV through a cable or satellite service, you do not need to rescan. Your service provider will do it for you.
Visit tvanswers.org for more information on rescanning, and if and when your other local stations are moving frequencies. And keep your eyes here, too …we’ll keep you posted!
