At noon on Monday, March 18, 2019, KTLA is changing the frequency it uses to broadcast its television signal.

If you use an antenna to watch TV over the air, you must rescan your television set or converter box to continue receiving KTLA after noon March 18.  Cable and satellite viewers are not affected.

How to Rescan

Anytime after noon March 18:

  1.  Find your TV remote control or converter box remote.
  2. Press Menu.
  3. Press Set Up. If your television/converter box doesn’t list this, please check the owner’s manual/operating guide.
  4. Choose Antenna.
  5. Choose Channel Scan or Auto Tune;  the TV will now automatically scan for all available channels. This might take a few minutes to complete.
  6. If the channel doesn’t appear, try the rescan procedure again.

KTLA Technology Reporter Rich DeMuro explains how the process works in this clip:
