WEIQ Viewer Alert

Alabama Public Television's new WEIQ Channel 42 transmitter is now operational serving South Alabama. If you watch APT on WEIQ using an antenna, you will need to Rescan for Channels on your television or digital converter box to begin receiving APT on the new channel.  WEIQ moved to a new frequency as part of a national reallocation of the airwaves by the FCC to make more room for wireless internet broadband services.

To rescan, it's important to unplug your television or cut off electricity to it so the receiver will clear its memory.  After that, 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 WEIQ as channels 42.1, 42.2, 42.3 and 42.4.  More Details

If you watch TV through a cable or satellite service, your service provider will do it for you. 

APT moved to its new frequency earlier than scheduled because the old channel 42 transmitter broke down on Monday.

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.
