VIDEO: Make your plan to rescan on March 13

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.

This issue should be resolved soon. Many local TV stations across the country are moving to new frequencies per requirements from the FCC. We are making plans to increase our signal permanently on March 13.

Antenna users will need to plan to rescan for channels on your TV starting March 13 to take advantage of our stronger signal.

Cable and satellite viewers are not impacted by these changes.

Antenna users just have to follow these six easy steps to find the signal again.

  • 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 March 13, you will not pick up the new signal and will have to go through the same process again.

We thank you for your patience!
