TV Frequency Changes Mean Antenna Users Need To Rescan
A three-year project to reallocate television broadcast frequencies nationwide is finishing up, and that means changes if you get TV using an antenna.
On Friday at 12:30 p.m., WTVI PBS Charlotte will become the final station in the Charlotte area to make the switch. Eleven other Charlotte-area stations made the change last fall.
It doesn't affect the channel number, but if you rely on an over-the-air signal instead of cable or satellite, you'll need to rescan your TV Friday afternoon in order to continue receiving the channel.
It's part of a federal effort to open new spectrum for high-speed wireless services.
