Rescan Your TV on October 15, 2019 to Continue Watching WTTW (and also on October 18 for other channels)

If you watch WTTW with an over-the-air antenna, you will need to rescan your television on October 15, 2019 in order to keep receiving WTTW. And you will need to rescan again on October 18 to see other broadcast channels. Due to a government-mandated change, most broadcast stations in our area are required to move frequencies.

In addition, WTTW will be off the air for approximately three hours starting at midnight on October 15 (Monday night into Tuesday morning). 

To rescan, press "Menu" on your remote control. Select "Setup," then choose "Antenna" and select "Auto-Tune" or "Channel Scan." That should make WTTW and all other channels available again (rescanning may take five minutes or longer). For more information visit

Cable and satellite subscribers are unaffected, and will not need to rescan their televisions.
