How to Rescan Your TV
NBC New York is moving to a new transmitter with a much stronger signal and wider reach. If you are an over-the-air viewer who watches our station with a UHF antenna, you will need to rescan your TV channel lineups by the end of March 2018 to keep receiving NBC New York.
Follow these simple steps:
- Make sure you have a VHF/UHF antenna connected to your TV
- Go to your TV menu
- Select “Channel Setup” (or similar)
- Choose “Antenna” and/or “Air”
- Run “Auto-program”
- Your TV may take 3 to 15 minutes as it searches for channels in your area
If your television is not digital, but you have a digital set-top box, refer to your set-top box product manual to learn how to add channels.
