Cable and satellite viewers are not affected.

How to Rescan

If you rely on an antenna to watch free, over-the-air television, you must rescan your TV set after May 23 at (time) to continue to receive KGUN 9.

Rescanning is when your TV finds all the available channels in your area. You do not need to purchase new equipment or services to rescan. If you are a cable or satellite subscriber, a rescan is not required.

How to Rescan Your Antenna TV

  • 1. Select Scan or Autotune from your TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process.
  • 2. Your TV will do the rest. This process usually takes a few minutes to complete.

Once your rescan is complete you will still find KGUN 9 on the same channel number as before. If you have rescanning difficulties, you can usually find instructions by selecting the “Set-Up” or “Menu” button on your television or converter box remote control. You can also consult the TV or converter box owner's manual for detailed instructions on how to run a channel scan or contact customer service for your TV or converter box manufacturer.
