June 1, 2018, is Rescan Day for viewers of Nine Network. On that day, we will change our current frequency to a new one. This will be transparent to most viewers. We will still be known as Channel 9 (KETC).
Rescan Day only applies to televisions that rely on an antenna, indoors or outdoors, to get local channels.
If you are one of the 77 million Americans who rely on an antenna to watch free, over-the-air television, you'll need to take simple steps to rescan your TV set when the Nine Network moves its frequency on June 1. You do not need to purchase new equipment or services.
If you pay a monthly fee to subscribe to a television service – such as cable or satellite – you do not need to take action. Your service provider will take care of it for you.
Don’t rescan until the change takes place on June 1, 2018. You might need to scan multiple times if you don’t find us on your TV.
The need to change our frequency was the result the Federal Communications Commission's "spectrum" auction to help make room for more wireless services across the country.
Rescan in Three Steps (for more information visit: http://www.tvanswers.org)
To begin rescanning, find the remote control that changes your channels.
- Press Menu
- Select Setup on the menu (if you can’t find the option to rescan this way, check your owner’s manual or search for your television’s specific instructions online.)
- Please make sure to choose Antenna, not Cable, then select Channel Scan (or Autotune)
Your TV will automatically rescan available signals so all your channels tune in again.
After you rescan your TV set, we can still be found at our usual channel numbers: 9.1, 9.2, 9.3 and 9.4.
