VIA TV Programs
VIA is Moving Frequencies
If you watch TV for free using an antenna tune in: WVIA is moving frequencies on July 1st, 2020 at 10 a.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 July 1st, 2020 after 10 a.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 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.
More information about the transition can be obtained from the FCC at www.fcc.gov or by calling 1-888-CALL-FCC.
