You will be able to watch Circle over-the-air using your antenna on WCSC 5.3.

Circle will have a wide variety of country music programming, including “Opry Live,” which will feature Grand Ole Opry performances each week beginning in February. Circle is also bringing back “Hee Haw,” a venerable music and comedy sketch show that aired from 1971 to 1993 and from 1996 to 1997.

To find Circle on Jan. 1, you may need to rescan if you watch WCSC over the air, but don’t perform the scan until Jan. 1.

For most TVs, you can rescan with a few simple steps:

  1. Use your remote to access the MENU system on your television.
  2. While on the TV (or TUNER) input, select the ANTENNA setting (if applicable).
  3. Find the option labeled “Scan for channels,” “Channel search,” or something similar, and select that with your remote.
  4. Your TV will automatically search the airwaves for all available local channels, including CIRCLE.

If these steps don’t work, you may want to search online for your specific TV brand or refer to your TV’s user manual for a step-by-step guide.

Grit, which is currently on WCSC 5.3, will move to WCSC 5.4. If you currently receive Grit, you’ll automatically receive Circle when the switch happens, but you’ll still need to rescan to continue seeing Grit on its new channel.
