New channels reassigned Friday: Everything you need to know about rescanning your TV


Are certain channels starting to disappear on your TV? 

It's time to rescan, antenna-users.

Friday marks the end of the repacking period, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Between Sept. 7 and Oct. 18, television stations have been assigned to new channels, meaning you may have lost access to some of your favorite programs.


But not to worry – those channels have not been lost for good. Here's what you need to know to get back in touch:

How do I rescan?

When your TV flashes the "weak" or "no signal" signs, it's time to rescan. 

You can do this by picking up your remote and clicking the "menu" or "setup" button. Follow the instructions on your screen to instruct the TV to scan for all available channels.

It's the same process you went through when you first set up your TV.


I have cable or satellite TV. Do I need to worry about this?
No. This reminder is for antenna-users only.

Why do I need to rescan my TV?
"This channel is moving frequencies" is another message your screen may flash when it's time for a rescan.

Why? Because the change in frequency impacts how a channel is received over the air by your TV, according to the FCC.

In other words, you need to rescan in order for your TV to find the airwaves where those channels have been reassigned. 

The change will open up airwaves for new high-speed wireless services.


Are my channels getting different numbers?
Nope.

Once you rescan, things will go back to normal – on your end. The change affects the station frequency, but you will still know your favorite programs by the channel number they have always been on.

Will I get new channels during the rescan?
Possibly.

It's possible that, depending on the last time you rescanned, new channels you didn't have before could be discovered during the rescan.

There could be channels on frequencies that your TV did not reach before, so enjoy those added bonuses.
