It's been stated multiple times ... check the WUCF website. It is being updated daily with information showing the progress of the project.

Yes. Comcast tech said we don’t need a new box. You will be charged for box. Call 855-761-8885. They gave me the correct answer.

We have directv and haven't had it for nearly a week. Thought I saw somewhere that they're putting in a new tower (PBS station) due to weather. NOT sure if that's correct or not.

No it's not correct..... I think I read someplace the work was finished and WUCF has returned!

Default Comcast

Comcast has no idea what is going on with pbs but I heard about the antenna yesterday mom tried the station for pbs and it was back on. Can’t believe that Comcast or ixfinity had no clue 🤔

You need to rescan your unit (tv) in order to receive the new signals from PBS. Only takes a minute or two - check the PBS site for instructions or just Google your tv model number and check for scanning instructions.
