CHICAGO - If you watch FOX 32 and My50 using an over-the-air antenna, you will need to rescan your TV on October 18 after 2 a.m. in order to continue to watch our air.
To rescan, press the “menu” button on your TV remote, then go to the channel or antenna option and select Auto Tune or Rescan.
Your TV will do the rest. (Rescanning may take 5 minutes or longer)
If you are a cable or satellite subscriber, you will not have to do anything.
For questions or help, go to Fox32Rescan@foxtv.com or call our hotline at 312-565-8070.
