KTAB-TV Changes Graphic

This past Friday, July 3, KTAB Television changed its frequency as part of an Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandated plan to create new space for 5G mobile broadband telecommunications.

KTAB’s channel will still be displayed as 32.1, and the station is still affiliated with CBS, but behind-the-scenes KTAB has moved from UHF channel 24 to channel 30, which is what is prompting the rescan.

The FCC notes, that, “Nationwide, millions of U.S. households watch national network and local TV programming using an over-the-air antenna. Cable and satellite subscribers aren’t affected by these changes”.  If you performed a rescan of your television after 12 Noon on July 3, you will be okay in receiving KTAB over-the-air.

KTAB currently broadcasts 4 stations as part of its HD channel:

32.1   KTAB-DT    (CBS)
32.2   KTAB-DT2   (Telemundo)
32.3   KTAB-DT3   (Court TV)
32.4   KTAB-DT4   (Ion)

“Some TV stations across the nation are changing frequencies to help make airwaves available to meet ever-growing consumer demand for high-speed mobile broadband services, such as 5G,” said Incentive Auction Task Force Chair Jean Kiddoo. “While the channel numbers on the TV are not changing, viewers who use a rooftop or indoor antenna need to rescan their televisions to continue receiving those channels. The process is the same as when viewers first connected their TV to the antenna and scanned it to find local channels, and the FCC has resources to help viewers who may need assistance.”
