TV District

ATTENTION: OROVADA & MCDERMITT RESIDENTS

The Humboldt County TV District will be moving equipment to a new, permanent location during the week of October 7, 2019. Satellite viewers will not be affected by this move.

You will need to perform a few actions in order to continue to receive the Over-The-Air channels:

1. You will need to turn your antenna towards our new location, which will be Eagle Creek. If your antenna is still pointed towards our old location, you will need to point it in the opposite direction.

2. Your channels should appear after moving your antenna to the correct orientation, but it is possible you may need to rescan your channels.

3. If you use an indoor antenna, you may not be able to receive the Over-The-Air channels.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call our office or email us. 

Channel Displacement

Due to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) selling channels 37 and above, Humboldt County TV District has filed for new channel displacements and will be making the necessary changes. These necessary channel changes will be occurring until the end of 2020, as many major broadcast stations will be changing in different phases. As a result of this, you may need to rescan your TVs more than once to update your programming. We will be sure to continue advertising as needed so that our community is aware of the upcoming changes.

For more information on the Channel Displacement, we’ve linked some helpful websites below.
