UPDATE: WAFF 48′s improved over-the-air signal will be available starting Tuesday, March 24. Read below to find out how to rescan your television starting March 24 to receive our new signal.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - If you watch WAFF 48 using our free, over-the-air signal, you may have recently noticed some issues receiving WAFF TV.

Right now, we are using a temporary antenna to broadcast our signal. This may have resulted in a loss of quality or reception to a number of our viewers.

WAFF 48′s upgraded signal will be available on Tuesday, March 24. Antenna viewers will need to rescan channels on their television starting March 24 to receive WAFF 48′s new signal.

Cable and satellite viewers will not be impacted by these changes.

Antenna users just have to follow these six easy steps to find the signal again when the new signal is available.

  • Make sure you have a VHF/UHF antenna connected to your TV.
  • Go to your TV menu.
  • Select “Channel Setup” or something similar.
  • Choose “Antenna” and/or “Air.”
  • Run “Auto-program.”
  • Your TV may take three to fifteen minutes as it searches for channels in your area.

If you rescan before the new signal is available, you will not pick up the new signal and will have to go through the same process again.

The new signal will be available for rescanning starting Tuesday, March 24.
