LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - As you may have seen, this Friday, NewsChannel 11's analog signal will be turned off. We've been calling this the Big Switch as it represents our conversion from analog to 100% digital television.
What's new about this is that NewsChannel 11 is also asking you to rescan your TV. Why? Not only are we switching to all digital, but we are changing digital channels to serve you better. That means anyone who currently gets NewsChannel 11 over the air, will have to rescan their TV or converter box in order to receive the new and improved NewsChannel 11.
t may seem complicated but consider this, although you must rescan starting this Friday, you can practice now. I would encourage you to rescan now just to be familiar with the process. Then, come Friday, it will be that much easier to make the switch.
Our web site has step by step instructions on different types of TV's and converter boxes. Click here if you need help or call us at 744-1414 during business hours. We will be available this Friday to help you from 6am to 7pm. You can also call the FCC hotline anytime at 1-888-CALL-FCC, or 1-888-225-5322.
So practice now, then rescan on Friday,and you'll continue to get all of your favorite NewsChannel 11 programming.
