WGIQ Viewer Action

If you live in Southeast Alabama and watch APT on WGIQ channel 43 using an antenna, you will need to Rescan for Channels on your television or digital converter box on to continue receiving APT. Alabama Public Television's WGIQ transmitter began operating on a new channel on the evening of November 30 as part of a national reallocation of the airwaves by the FCC to make more room for wireless internet broadband services.

To rescan, select "scan" or "autotune" from your TV or converter box control menu to start the process. You can usually find instructions by pressing the "set-up" or "menu" buttons on your remote control. Once your rescan is complete, your television will still identify WGIQ as channel 43.  More Details

Rescanning is straightforward and requires no new equipment or services. If you watch TV through a cable or satellite service, your service provider will do it for you.

Visit www.TVAnswers.org for more information on rescanning and look for more information to come on-air and at www.aptv.org. If you have problems, call APT at 1-800-239-5233 for help.
