As you may know, OPT has undergone some major technical changes to comply with FCC-mandated channel reassignments for both KOZJ in Joplin and KOZK in Springfield. We are nearing the end of that process, and will be making our channel transitions soon.
That means that over-the-air viewers (those who use an antenna to watch, and do not subscribe to cable or satellite) will need to rescan their televisions. This rescan will need to be done on a specific date, and will vary depending on which OPT station you receive.
PLAN TO RESCAN
Joplin-Area Viewers: KOZJ over-the-air viewers will need to rescan their televisions on Saturday, September 1.
Springfield-Area Viewers: KOZK over-the-air viewers will need to rescan their televisions on Monday, September 17.
Once you rescan on the date listed above, you are all set. There is nothing more you need to do to receive OPT.
The resources on this page will help you through the process. If you need additional assistance or information, please call the station at 417-836-3500.
