Please follow the guidelines below if you’ve recently purchased a new television or are rescanning to receive NewsChannel 5. Do you have a different brand of television? Select the model of TV you own from our antenna home.

Samsung TVs come in a variety of sizes and styles. The instructions below apply to the most common models, but they may not apply to all.

A rescan is referred to by a different term by each television maker. The rescan function on most Samsung TVs is referred described as “Auto Program” or “Auto Tuning.”

FIRST, TRY THESE. If you’ve ever messed with with your TV’s settings, following tips should help you rescan it.

1. Press the “Menu” button on your remote.

2. Select “Channel” or “Broadcasting” from the menu. (Depending on your model, the precise menu name will vary.)

3. Select “Auto Program” from the drop-down menu.

4. If you’re asked whether you want to search for “Air” or “Cable,” choose “Air.” (Many TVs may not ask and will automatically scan for both.)

Samsung Smart TVs — 2017 models and above. (Includes 4K, OLED, Q series, Quantom Dot TVs)

1. Use your remote to choose “Home.” (The’menu’ button has the appearance of a small house.)

2. Select the “Settings” option from the drop-down menu. (On the extreme bottom left of the menu, there’s a small gear icon.)

3. In the Settings menu, select “Broadcasting,” then “Auto Tuning.”

4. You should get a popup that says, “Press Start to search for and save channels,” as well as a warning that the search will wipe out your current channel list. “Start” should be selected (Note: The purpose of the scan is to erase your current list, but replace it with an updated list)

5. You could be asked whether you want to search for “Both, Air or Cable.” Scan for antenna channels with “Air” or “Both.”

Samsung Smart TV’s — 2014-2017 models

These instructions are very similar to the ones above, with the exception of the remote.

1. Press the “Menu” button on your remote. (On 2016 model remotes, the word “Settings” appears.)

2. In the menu, choose “Broadcasting” (2014 model TVs may say “Channel” instead).

Samsung non-smart TV’s (All models)

These are all Samsung TVs that do not have an internet connection, which covers most models from before 2014. Samsung makes a lot of non-smart TV types, much too many to offer precise instructions for each one. Most Samsung televisions should work with the steps below, but there may be slight differences depending on the device.

1. On your remote, press the “Menu” button. (On many remote controls, the word “Menu” appears with three boxes beneath it.)

2. From the menu, select “Channel.” (In some newer models, “Broadcasting” may be used instead.)

3. Select “Auto Program” or “Auto Tune” from the drop-down menu.

4. Your television may prompt you to program “Air” or “Cable.” If this is the case, choose “Air.” This instructs your television to search for antenna channels.

More instructions for your specific TV model can be found on Samsung’s support page.

Is it possible to use a smart TV with satellite?

Smart TV services and features have no impact on a TV’s ability to receive local broadcasts. You will continue to receive the same stations if you have cable or satellite service. If you don’t have any of those services, you’ll need an internet connection (DSL or cable) to access the smart services, as well as one of our finest TV antennas to receive free local broadcasts. Most television stations, at least for the time being, have not followed the lead of radio stations in streaming their live broadcasts online.

How do I use my satellite dish to watch TV?

You can get over-the-air transmissions using your satellite dish in two different ways. The first is to connect directly, whereas the second is to use a receiver.

You’re in luck if your TV has two tuners built in. To see if it does, look in the manual or, if you’ve misplaced it, look for your model on the internet. You may immediately connect your satellite dish to it. Simply follow the steps outlined below.

  • Before you begin, make sure your television is turned off.
  • Connect your satellite dish cable to the back of your TV’s SAT jack.
  • Retune your channels and turn on your television.
  • If prompted, enter your postcode.
  • You will be able to receive multi-region channels if you select to skip the postcode stage.

If your TV has multiple SAT jacks on the rear, plug your satellite’s coaxial line into the main one of the two.

Do you have a receiver at home already? If that’s the case, getting your TV channels is also a breeze.

  • Connect a coaxial wire to your dish’s LNB port and tighten it until it’s secure.
  • As with the previous approach, insert the opposite end of the coaxial cable into the SAT jack.
  • With an HDMI cable, connect your receiver’s output jack to your television.
  • Turn on the television and the receiver box.
  • To complete the setup, hold down the SAT or input buttons on your TV remote.
