News 5 Now: Where It Is
News 5 Now is in more homes than ever. You might have it and not even know it! N5N can be seen in all these places:
Free, over-the-air: KOAA-TV broadcast subchannel (5-2)
Comcast: Colorado Springs (9) and Pueblo (247)
Cablevision: Canon City (7), Walsenburg (5), and La Junta/Lamar (14)
Baja Broadband: Fort Carson (23)
TVision: Colorado City and Rye (9)
Watching News 5 Now on 5-2 is a great option for digital broadcast viewers, as well as for satellite subscribers who don't want to pay to upgrade to local channels and instead watch them free, over-the-air.
If you have a newer TV with a digital tuner built into it or if you have an older TV with a new converter box, you'll find local news and weather, 24/7, right next to KOAA-TV's main channel, which is on 5-1.
If you don't see channel 5-2, look for and use the "re-scan" function in the menu options of your TV or converter box. This function tells your TV to search for all available channels - including N5N on 5-2.
