ASHE COUNTY — Citizens of Ashe County looking to keep their connections to the television channels WUNE-TV, WLFB, WXII-TV and WUNL-TV will have to rescan for them before Friday, Sept. 6. If not done, customers can end up losing connection to the channels they currently have.

Sept. 6 ends the “repack date” for the channels WUNE-TV and WUNL-TV, which carry PBS, and WXII-TV, which carries NBC. From Oct. 19 to Jan. 17, 2020, WLFB, which carries an assortment of religious and shopping channels, will be repacking, according to the FCC.
