Shreveport-based station KSLA (Channel 12) has announced it is moving frequencies on June 23, meaning viewers who watch TV with an over-the-air antenna will need to re-scan their TV.
The FCC is making KSLA move to a new frequency to accommodate wireless internet services, the station said.
“We’ve been a part of this community for 66 years, and we know that our viewers rely on us for critical breaking news and severe weather alerts, along with the very best in sports and entertainment. That’s not going to change,” said Sacha Purciful, Vice President and General Manager of KSLA. “Our goal is to make this transition as easy as possible on our viewers to ensure they can keep watching the programs they love, such as NCIS, Survivor, and 60 Minutes.”
To rescan on June 23, 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 change is not affecting KSLA's channel number. Cable and satellite customers do not need to re-scan their TVs because their service provider does it for them.
