Eyewitness News (generic)

For more stories, watch Channel 3 Eyewitness News or head to WFSB.com.

Due to FCC regulations and mandatory antenna and tower work, WFSB Channel 3 has lowered our transmitting power.

This will allow WFSB Channel 3 to upgrade to a new channel for our FCC mandated deadline of August 1st of 2019.

Viewers will need to rescan for Channel 3 once we switch over, which is happening on Aug. 1 at 1 p.m.

Because we are at a lower power, there may be pockets of Connecticut that will not be able to get our signal.

We are making every effort to increase transmitting power when we can.

Thank You for your loyal viewership and we look forward to serving you in the months and years to come.

You can watch our newscasts on the Ch. 3 app and on Roku. To download the Ch. 3 app, click here.

Uh huh

“We are making every effort to increase transmitting power when we can.” Why is it every other station is working, if they all have to follow these same steps? Also, “...when we can.” Is not a very encouraging answer to when this will be fixed. I have Charter/Spectrum out of Newtown, CT and WFSB has many problems over the last few years. I thought it was Charter messing with the signal, but this post seems to say it’s WFSB... if you are looking to have a serious downturn in your viewership, you will undoubtedly succeed.
