NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) auctioned off several over-the-air broadcast channels in 2017 in order to improve wireless coverage. Due to that, stations like FOX 5 who broadcast on those channels are being moved to different ones.
In preparation for that, we had to temporarily move to a different transmission antenna in West Orange, New Jersey, with the result being that some homes that receive us over-the-air are having difficulty viewing us. Don't worry though—you can still watch FOX 5 over-the-air!
If you're having difficulty receiving our signal, please send an email to Viewer.Services@FOXTV.COM, include a contact name, email address or phone number and we will respond with some hints or tips that may help you find us again.
In the meantime, you can watch all of our newscasts live by going to our website at FOX5NY.com/video/live. We hope you will continue to watch us there until we are back on your TV.
And, even better news, as of Aug. 1, FOX 5 will start broadcasting on our new channel with a stronger signal than ever!
Thank you for being a loyal viewer!
