If you are having issues finding GPB you may need to do a rescan of your TV channels.

Rescan in Three Steps

To begin rescanning, find the remote control that changes your channels.

  1. Press Menu
  2. Select Channel Setup or Broadcast Setup on the menu (if you can’t find these options, check your owner’s manual or search for your television’s specific instructions online)
  3. Choose Auto Programming or Auto Scan, then select Air, then Start.
  4. Your TV will automatically rescan available signals so all your channels tune in again.

If you have rescanned and still cannot receive our signal, try changing the position of your antenna.

You can obtain more information by calling GPB’s Member & Audience Services department at 1-800-222-4788 or emailing ask@gpb.org. Regular business hours are Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
