If you've just bought a new TV, or are rescanning to get NewsChannel 5, please follow the instructions below. Have a different brand of TV? Head to our antenna home and select the model of TV you own.

There are dozens of models of Sceptre TVs. The instructions below cover the most popular models, but may not work for all.

Each TV manufacturer uses a different term to describe a rescan. Most Sceptre TV's call their rescan function "Auto Channel Search"

TRY THESE FIRST. If you've been into your TV's settings before, these instructions should help you rescan your TV.

1. Press the "Menu" button on your remote

2. Select the "Channel Icon" in the menu
