NJTV Announces Channel Changes For Over-the-Air Viewers of WNJS (Channel 23), WNJT (Channel 52), and TV Translator W35DK-D Sussex In Effect Starting August 1, 2019 at 1pm

Changes are result of the FCC’s nationwide TV spectrum repack and do not apply to viewers who receive NJTV via cable or satellite

July 1, 2019 – NEWARK, NJ – Beginning August 1, 2019 at 1pm, NJTV, New Jersey’s public television network, announced it will be changing broadcast channels in portions of the state, requiring some viewers to re-scan their television receivers to continue watching NJTV programming.

Specifically, WNJS (Channel 23), WNJT (Channel 52), and Sussex, NJ translator W35DK-D will cease broadcasting on their previously-assigned channels and begin broadcasting on channel 23 from facilities in Camden and Sussex.

If a viewer currently receives NJTV over-the-air on Channel 22 or channel 35, they will need to re-scan their television receiver after 1pm on August 1st.  Please note that these changes do not apply to viewers who receive NJTV via cable or satellite.

To rescan a television, select “scan” or “autotune” on the TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process. Instructions are usually available by pressing the “set-up” or “menu” buttons on your remote control.

The transmission changes result from the FCC’s nationwide TV spectrum repack, which requires new TV channel assignments in the region.

These changes apply only to viewers who receive NJTV over-the-air via WNJS (Channel 23), WNJT (Channel 52), or Sussex translator W35DK-D (channel 35).  If you receive NJTV over-the-air via WNJB (Channel 58) or WNJN (Channel 50), or if you receive NJTV via cable or satellite, the channel you watch will not change.
