Central Virginia TV stations CBS19 and NBC29 will transfer to new frequencies by Jan. 17.
According to a news release, the transition is part of a scheduled shift to make room for new 5G and other mobile broadband services.
Cable and satellite subscribers won’t be affected by the change. Households using an over-the-air antenna will need to rescan their television.
