How to rescan your television set:

If you rely on an antenna to watch free, over-the-air television, you must rescan your TV set after December 15, 2020 at 10 a.m. Pacific time to continue to receive Univision Seattle.

Rescanning is when your TV finds all the available channels in your area. You do not need to purchase new equipment or services to rescan. If you are a cable or satellite subscriber, a rescan is not required.

Here are the step-by-step instructions:

  1. Select Scan or Auto tune from your TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process.
  2. Your TV will do the rest. This process usually takes a few minutes to complete. Once your rescan is complete, you will still find Univision Seattle on the same channel number as before.

If you have rescanning difficulties, you can usually find instructions by selecting the Set-Up or Menu button on your television or converter box remote control. You can also consult the TV or converter box owner's manual for detailed instructions on how to run a channel scan, or contact customer service for your TV or converter box manufacturer.
