ATTENTION DISH CUSTOMERS: Dish Network needs to install new tower equipment to receive our new signal. This work was supposed to be done sometime this week (week of October 28th), however, Dish Network folks tell us they don’t know when it will happen. We apologize for the delay in service. We hope that it will be taken care of very shortly! You can call Dish at 1-800-333-3474 about this matter.

Attention WVUT viewers —

Due to the FCC mandated re-pack, WVUT viewers will need to rescan their televisions to receive our channels after Tuesday, October 15th.

What does that mean for our viewers?

If you watch WVUT over the air, using a TV antenna, you will need to re-scan your television to keep receiving our channels.


Some TVs rescan automatically. If your’s doesn’t, select “channel scan,” “auto-tune,” or similar function from your TV remote control or converter box menu to start the scanning process. You can usually find instructions by pressing the “set-up” or “menu” buttons.

If you rescan your TV and still can’t find our new channel 31, check your TV or converter box owner’s manual or website for troubleshooting help and customer service contact information.


Rescanning with Your Remote Control

The terminology for rescanning differs somewhat across manufacturers. Rescanning may also be referred to
as auto-tuning, channel set-up, channel scan, channel search, auto-scan, auto-program, or other terminology depending on your TV make and model. Instructions are similar for most remote controls.

While the terminology may differ, the process forrescanning is fairly simple. The following pages provide step-by-step instructions for several television brands. You should also consult your TV or converter box owner’s manual or visit the manufacturer’s website for instructions and customer service contact information.

Additional help is available on the FCC website or by calling 1-888-CALLFCC and selecting option “6.”
