    NBC4 and Cozi are moving to a new frequency on Aug. 2.

    You'll still find us on the same channel numbers, but if you watch using a TV antenna, you'll need to rescan after 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 1 or you'll lose our signals.

    Follow these simple steps:

    1. Go to your TV menu
    2. Select "Channel Setup" (or similar)
    3. Choose "Antenna" and/or "Air"
    4. Run "Auto-program"
    5. Your TV may take 3 to 15 minutes as it searches for channels in your area

    If you watch on cable, satellite or digital, you don't need to rescan.

    If your television is not digital, but you have a digital set-top box, refer to your set-top box product manual to learn how to add channels.

    The National Association of Broadcasters has a website that can help you figure out the re-scanning process, and the FCC has prepared the video below as well.

    And if you run into trouble, we're here to help. Call this number: 855-999-1518.
