Do you rely on a home antenna to view 51.1 WNYA My4, 51.2 LightTV, 51.3 Decades, and 51.4 Heroes & Icons? If so, please plan to “re-scan” your television set after approximately 5 a.m. on July 3 as WNYA changes its channel allocation according to a Federal mandate.
Cable Television, Dish Network, and DIRECTV subscribers should not be affected.
Re-scanning your television usually requires accessing your set’s menu using your remote control. Look for a “Channel Scan,” “Channel Setup” or similar function that will reprogram your set with the new lineup. Once you activate the “Scan” feature, your set will find all available channels automatically.
You may wish to try a new scan right now so that you’ll be ready in advance of the July 3 changes. There’s no harm in trying now -- your set will find us.
If you need assistance with re-scanning, make a note of your television set’s manufacturer name and model number. You can likely find more detailed re-scanning instructions on the manufacturer’s website by looking up the User Manual for your set, or by calling a manufacturer’s “toll-free” telephone assistance line. Your television manufacturer’s label will often include the “toll-free” number.
WNYT NewsChannel 13, NBC, and our other Channel 13 services will not change. Only WNYA My4 Channel 51 is affected by this Federal requirement.
Thank you for enjoying WNYA, and we look forward to welcoming you to our new service on July 3!
