*If you're experiencing issues rescanning, FOX 17's tower went down Friday. We are waiting on crews to respond to install a new transmitter. We apologize for the inconvenience.*

We are currently working off an interim transmitter to adapt to the FCC mandated changes. We are awaiting a crew to install the new transmitter. Signal strength may not be optimal until the crew arrives and installs the new transmitter. We sincerely apologize for the issue but are working around the clock and awaiting receipt of the new transmitter to rectify the situation.

Viewers who watch WZTV FOX 17 and WNAB CW58 over-the-air with an antenna should periodically rescan televisions to update digital channels.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is notifying viewers in advance of some stations (including channel 17,58) which will change frequencies.

While some boxes may rescan automatically, some viewers may need to conduct a scan themselves. Once your television rescans, all the available channels will show up.

Changes to local TV station frequencies across the country are expected to be completed by July 2020, though WZTV and WNAB are expected to change by the end of this year.
