WEUX-TV FOX48 announced that it is moving frequencies on April 12th at 12 a.m. and viewers who watch TV for free with an over-the-air antenna must rescan their TVs to continue watching the station. Rescanning is when a TV finds all of the available channels in an area. WLAX Fox25 in La Crosse will not be transitioning until 2020 so no rescan is necessary if you watch WLAX-TV Fox 25 over the air. Viewers do not need to purchase new equipment or services, and those who watch WEUX FOX48 through a cable or satellite service do not need to rescan – your service provider will do it for you.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) held an auction of broadcast airwaves to provide more channels for wireless internet broadband services. WEUX FOX 48 did not participate in the auction, however, the FCC is requiring this station and nearly 1,000 others nationwide to move to new frequencies to make room for wireless internet services. TV stations must move frequencies at different times as required by the FCC. This means viewers who use an antenna may have to rescan their TV sets more than once.
To rescan on April 12th, select "scan" or "autotune" on the TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process. Instructions are usually available by pressing the "set-up" or "menu" buttons on the remote control. This move is happening behind the scenes, so the channel number viewers know will not change. Plan to rescan and stay tuned to FOX2548 for more information or visit our website at wiproud.com.
