Why must I rescan my TV?

You must rescan your TV only if it is connected to an over-the-air antenna on WLBT. WLBT is offering new channels and you may need to re-scan in order to receive these new signals.

What happens if I don’t rescan?

You may not be taking advantage of all that WLBT has to offer on your TVs that are connected to an antenna.

What if I re-scan and I cannot see the new channels from WLBT?

Wait a bit. Consult your TV instruction manual and try again.

I can’t find my TV instruction manual, what do I do?

We suggest going online to your manufacturer’s website. They frequently offer downloads of instruction manuals.

Who else can help me?

You might call your TV manufacturer or contact the retailer from which you purchased your TV.

Why use an antenna to watch TV?

An over-the-air TV antenna is a way to enjoy WLBT for free. Over-the-air reception offers the best picture possible because it is delivered directly from WLBT to you. Most electronics retailers sell inexpensive antennas.
