As of 11 a.m. Friday, August 23, some viewers in the Miami Valley and in outlying areas may temporarily be unable to watch WHIO-TV because of a federally mandated change.

Cable, satellite, antenna and internet streaming customers in the core viewing area WILL NOT be impacted.

On October 18, WHIO-TV will be moving from our current frequency to a new frequency. At that time, all of those who use an antenna must rescan their televisions or converter boxes in order to watch WHIO-TV, and those who have been impacted by today’s change will also once again receive WHIO-TV by rescanning.

By law, many TV stations are moving to a new frequency, therefore rescanning is necessary for your television to find all available channels.

In the meantime, affected viewers can watch WHIO-TV on the WHIO app, free in the app store, or by accessing a number of services like CBS All Access, You Tube, Hulu, cable, satellite, DirecTV Now, AT&T Now, Sling, and Sony Vue.

More information can be found at www.tvanswers.org, regarding station move dates, reminders and instructions for rescanning.
