CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — KRIS 6 News has been working to bring you an improved antenna TV experience, causing some interruption to your ability to watch us.

We apologize profusely for the inconvenience.

We have just finished building a brand-new, state-of-the-art Channel 6 transmitter, and as you know, sometimes installing new equipment requires an adjustment period. We're in that period now.

Sunday into Tuesday, we were doing tower maintenance to improve our signal, which gives you a better picture. We are still working on the new transmitter, and that work is expected to be complete by Thursday evening.

It will require re-scanning your channels at least one more time.

Here's how to do that:

  1. Make sure you have an antenna connected to your TV.
  2. Go to settings — broadcasting — and do a channel scan, so you can pick up our new, stronger signal.
  3. Once your channel scan is complete, you will either see two channel 6’s, or a channel 6 and a channel 26, depending on the model of your TV.

Those who have already scanned their channels in a previous update may have to do so again. KRIS 6 News also is always available online at and on the KRIS 6 News app.

We know this is frustrating, but we are constantly working to improve our facilities so that we can serve you better. Thank you so much for watching!
