Please note: If you have cable or satellite, this message doesn’t apply to you

Louisville-area antenna viewers will need to rescan to continue receiving KET’s signal

In the Louisville viewing area, KET is moving frequencies to upgrade its signal to NEXTGEN TV on September 19 at 11 a.m. ET.

If you use an antenna to watch TV for free in this area, you must rescan your television after September 19 at 11 a.m. ET. to continue receiving KET channels. Cable and satellite viewers are not affected.

Please note: If you have cable or satellite or are not in the Louisville area, this message doesn’t apply to you.

How to Rescan Your Channels

Rescanning is when your TV finds all of the available channels in your area. You do not
need to purchase new equipment or services to rescan. If you are a cable or satellite
subscriber, a rescan is not required.

For over-the-air (antenna) viewers, to keep receiving KET, you will need to rescan your TV or converter box. Here’s how:

  • Press the Menu button on your remote control
  • Select Setup, then Channels
  • Select “scan” or “autotune” from the menu to start the scanning process.
  • Your TV will do the rest. This process usually takes a few minutes to complete.

Every TV is different, so what you see on your screen may not exactly match the steps above. If you run into trouble, please refer to your TV’s product manual, or contact the TV manufacturer for clearer directions specific to your device.


  • NEXTGEN TV is the latest digital television technology standard for broadcast, beginning to roll out market by market in the United States.
  • NEXTGEN TV provides a better audio and video experience for viewers, brings broadcast TV into a new age and is built on the recently developed ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard.

What about KET antenna users in other parts of Kentucky?

Once NEXTGEN TV is scheduled to roll out in other Kentucky markets, we will alert viewers in those areas.
