WTCI-PBS To Change Frequencies And Move To Higher Power Tower

Thursday, September 5, 2019
WTCI, the Tennessee Valley’s PBS station, is one of hundreds of television stations across the country who are changing their over-the-air broadcast frequencies as a part of the FCC-mandated Spectrum repack. WTCI viewers who receive their local channels using a TV antenna will need to rescan their TV set to ensure the TV recognizes the new frequency. Cable and satellite subscribers do not need to rescan.
 
To rescan, viewers will need to find “auto tune,” “program” or “rescan” in the “setup” menu of their TV or converter box remote control.
Viewers experiencing connection issues are encouraged to re-position their antenna to point toward the Falling Water area. If you live in an apartment building, nursing home or other multi-unit facility and receive service through your building, contact your property manager to adjust the building’s antenna. 
 
WTCI’s new channel is on the air but is operating at reduced power as construction is completed on a new, 440-foot tower. Once completed, the new tower will provide viewers throughout the region with improved signal quality and reach. Construction is expected to be completed in two to three weeks. Viewers experiencing connection issues are encouraged to visit https://www.wtcitv.org/rescan/ for additional resources or call 423-702-7815.
