KSAZ Prescott, AZ Translator RF Channel Change
Due to the recent FCC spectrum auction, all television transmitters and translators above channel 36 must migrate to lower channel numbers. On Tuesday, 11/28/17, the KSAZ translator in Prescott will be moving from RF channel 39 to RF channel 25.
The translator will be taken off air at 10:00 a.m. for retuning. We expect the translator to return to air on its new channel at approximately 3:00 p.m. Once back on the air, viewers will need to re-scan their television set or tuner box to receive the new channel.
While the process to re-scan differs slightly depending on make and model of TV or tuner, it typically involves navigating the menu to the Channel group and then selecting the Auto Program function.
The virtual channels for KSAZ, Heroes & Icons, and Light TV Network will remain 10.1, 10.3, and 10.4 respectively.
