CW50 will be changing its physical channel assignment on June 21, 2019.

If you are using an over-the-air antenna, you will need to rescan your TV by then in order to watch WKBD-TV CW50.

Press the menu button on your remote control, go to the channel or antenna menu and select autotune or rescan.

The scan should take 3 to 15 minutes to complete as your TV searches for channels in your area.

If your TV is not digital, but you use a digital set-top box to get signal, see your set-top box product manual to learn how to add channels.

For more information, check out the FCC’s rescanning information page.

    What channel are you changing to?

  2. Out of luck in Orion Twp says:

    As of June 22 they’re using channel 34. Problem is, it’s half the strength. That makes it 1/4th the strength it was an analog. We added a second antenna for the first switch (to 14). Now it’s weker still and we’re out of antennae! Can’t you turn up the gain please?

    I used to get a good strong signal, I rescanned and now I get nothing.

  4. Windsorite says:

    Results are the same for me here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada as previous poster Thomas has already stated.

  5. Janice Benjamin says:

    I have rescanned many times in recent months and still don’t get the CW50 channels. Why?
