BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - WBRC FOX6 News will be making changes to our multicast channel lineups on January 1.
WBRC will be adding Circle (a new network) to our over-the-air antenna lineup on WBRC-D3 (6.3). Grit TV, currently airs on WBRC-D3 (6.3) and will move to WBRC-D5 (6.5).
What does this mean for viewers?
Viewers who normally watch Grit TV on WBRC-D3 (6.3) using an over-the-air antenna will be impacted and may need to rescan for channels. Cable viewers may be temporarily unable to find Grit TV in their lineups.
1. I use an antenna, what happened to Grit TV, do you no longer carry it?
