From radio to television, smart speakers and streaming, the modern age of technology is bringing us closer to media than ever before, and WXXI wants to make sure that no one is left behind in the switch. Over the next few months, we’ll be creating tutorials on everything from activating your Passport benefits, to making a watchlist on the PBS streaming app. If you have any immediate issues or questions, you can always contact our membership department for help: membership@wxxi.org or 585-258-0200.


If you’re a WXXI Television viewer using an antenna, this is an important message for you.

By law certain TV stations in our area are required to change broadcast frequencies. WXXI is one of these stations. Work is scheduled throughout the month of July. Your overnight reception of WXXI may be affected during this period. After this work is completed you will need to rescan your TV to receive the new frequencies – but don’t worry – we will still appear on your TV as WXXI 21.1 through 21.4. Check out this page for more info and updates!
