Rescan your TV: ABC11 changes frequencies

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Change is coming to antenna TV -- by law, nearly 1,000 TV stations across the country, including ABC11-WTVD, must move to new frequencies, many on different days.

What does this mean for you?

If you watch TV using an antenna, read this! You or someone you know may have re-scanned a TV a few weeks ago and were still not able to get ABC11. We replaced our antenna recently and now have an even stronger signal. So, if at first you didn't succeed, try and rescan again!

Grab your remote, go to menu, then setup, choose antenna and find "channel scan" or "autotune". It's that easy! You should then be able watch ABC11 Eyewitness News and your favorite ABC11 shows again. You might even get a few more channels you didn't know were missing! The channel number you see will not change. And this does NOT affect viewers who watch on cable, satellite, or streaming.

Don't worry - it's easy. To rescan, all you need is your remote control and a few spare minutes. Select "scan" or "auto-tune" from your TV or converter box menu. Instructions are often found by pressing the "set-up" or "menu" buttons on your remote control.

Then, you can go back to watching us on ABC11, just like before. So remember, on June 30 or after -- PLAN TO RESCAN.

If you get your TV service from the internet, a cable or satellite company, you will not need to rescan as your service provider will do it for you.
