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 TCL TVs. The instructions below cover the most popular models, but may not work for all.

Do you have an TCL Roku TV? Most TCL TVs sold in the last several years are Roku TVs. Use these instructions instead to rescan your channels!

Each TV manufacturer uses a different term to describe a rescan. Most TCL TV's call their rescan function "Channel Scan"

TRY THESE FIRST IF YOU HAVE A NON-ROKU TV. If you have a TCL Roku TV, please use the link above. If you've been into your TV's settings before, these instructions should help you rescan your TV.

1. Select the TV as Input (Using the "Input" key on your remote)

2. Press the "Menu button" to open the menu

3. Choose the "Setup" option.

4. Make sure the "Signal Type" is set to "Antenna"
