When: Beginning August 26th, horizon will dual simulcast the current analog channels and the new digital channels.
Scenario 2:



If you have a newer style digital TV with a QAM tuner and do not use a set-top box from Horizon, you will need to preform an auto-scan on your TV on August 26th. Since all TV manufacturers are different, we have provided a general outline on how to perform an auto-scan.  Please see below If you need more detailed help.  We have provided links to common TV manufacturers' manuals or help instructions.  After we remove the analog channels at the end of September, you will probably need to re-scan your TV again to erase the memory in your TV of the analog channels.
Actions Needed:
Scenario 3:


If you have an older analog TV, you have two options.

1. Upgrade to a newer digital TV with a QAM tuner.

2. Lease a set-top box from Horizon. If you have an older style VCR too, you may want to lease a set-top box. The set-top box will allow you to keep your equipment "as is" while making it possible to receive the new digital signals. Beginning September 8th, we will slowly start to remove analog channels weekly, until only the new line-up exists.
