CBS 58 CHANGES TELEVISION FREQUENCY - HERE'S HOW TO RESCAN 📺

CBS 58 and other television stations in Milwaukee have moved to new broadcast frequencies. If you use an antenna to watch any of our stations [WDJT, CBS 58 (58.1); WBME, MeTV (58.2); WMLW (58.3 and 49.1); WYTU, Telemundo Wisconsin (58.4); Start TV (58.5); Bounce (49.2); H&I (49.3) or Decades (49.4)], and do not see a picture, or if you see the message “No Signal,” you must rescan your TV. If you subscribe to a pay TV service – such as cable or satellite – you do not need to do anything.


Rescanning is a simple process. All you need is your TV remote and these general steps to guide you through the process.

  • Using your television's remote control, press the Menu or Settings option.  Note: a "Smart TV" may have a smart button that must be used to access the settings menu. It will generally have the manufacturer's logo on it.
  • Locate Channels or Tuner Set Up option.
  • Check the menu for an option of Antenna Type or Connection Type  followed by either Antenna or Cable.
  • Make sure that the designated setting is Antenna
  • From the menu, choose Digital Channel Search (based on manufacturer, alternate choices may include Channel Scan, Channel Search, Auto Scan or Auto program.)
  • Allow the TV to complete the search. During the search, you will see a bar listing how many channels have been found.
  • Once complete, confirm the menu prompt, then press an exit or quit option.

NOTE: All TV manufacturers differ, so menu options, wording and other items may vary. The best way to complete the channel scan is to refer to the TV owner's manual.

Will stations have new channel numbers?

No. After the rescan, all Weigel stations will be seen on the same channels as prior to the change.

Today is rainy and cloudy and I'm unable to get a cbs signal. My Samsung TV is one year old so I know it's not the tv. I'm on the fourth antenna and channel 58 always gets a poor signal in South Milwaukee 53172.
