Rescan reminder: Over-the-air antenna Live 5 viewers need to rescan channels

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - After months of work and upgrades, Live 5 has finished up the project at our tower.

At around 2 a.m. Friday, we made the switch to our new antenna and transmitter. This is part of the FCC repack of bandwidth at television stations across the country.

We're still channel 5, but we'll be on a different channel frequency.

So, two very important points: If you watch Live 5 on cable or satellite, you don't have to do anything; the switch will be seamless. But, if you watch Live 5 with an over-the-air antenna, you will have to rescan your channels. If you haven't rescanned after 2 a.m. Friday, you won't be able to see us.

Again, if you watch Live 5 with an over-the-air antenna, make sure you rescan your channels Friday morning.

You can get more information by calling 843-402-5717.

Thanks for being patient and for watching Live 5.
