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

Do you have an Westinghouse Roku TV? Use these instructions instead to rescan your channels!

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

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 the remote

2. Choose the "Channel" menu with the left and right buttons

3. Check that "Air/Cable" is set to "Air." If not, use the arrow buttons to choose "Air"
