Do you live in the New Haven area?
Do you watch CPTV using an antenna?
If so, this message is for you.
On November 1, 2017, CPTV will cease broadcasting from its WEDY-TV transmitter located in New Haven and will begin broadcasting WEDY-TV from Bridgeport. This change will affect a small number of viewers in the New Haven area who watch CPTV by using an over-the-air antenna.
This means two things:
- You need to perform a rescan on your TV so that it automatically selects the new channel.
- You might need to repoint your antenna to pick up the signal.
This change does not affect anyone who gets CPTV through cable, satellite, or internet, nor does it affect anyone outside the New Haven area.
Everyone will still have access to CPTV, statewide.
