Why is Fox New Mexico moving?
Our station was recently purchased by the Nexstar Broadcasting Group. Due to the ownership change, the FCC required the new buyers to divest KASA. But we were fortunate to only have to sell the call letters and the channel position. We kept our FOX affiliation and all our great people and programming that viewers are familiar with.
When does the switch over occur?
Tuesday, January 17 (going into Wednesday, January 18) at 12:00 AM 2017
What is 13-2?
An Over-The-Air Signal Only
A digital sub channel is an extra broadcast signals that overlap the main signal. An even easier way to understand subchannels is to think of them as people sharing the same car on the way to work. Just like a car, a signal can carry more than one sub channel. In this instance, if you get TV via an antenna, KRQE-TV (CBS) will be broadcast on channel 13-1 and Fox New Mexico will be broadcast on 13-2.
I get TV via an antenna, what do I do?
Run the “scan” (or auto program) function on your converter box or digital television set, usually on the remote control, labeled “SET-UP” or “MENU” or some similar term.
- Go to MENU (or HOME on some remotes)
- Go to Channels (or Settings and then Channels for some remotes)
- Go to the rescan or scan option, which could be called one of the following:
- Auto scan
- Auto search
- Auto program
- Channel search
- Select that option and it will take about 5 minutes to rescan the channels and add 13-2 to the list
Remotes are all different based on the many different models of TVs, if none of these steps appear on the remote, try searching Google for your TV Brand & Model and download the user’s manual.
Consult the owner’s manual for more detailed instructions on how to run a channel scan.
Once the scan is complete, you should be receiving digital channels through your antenna.
