First things first: you need to get your connections sorted out before we can move on to discussing how to search for channels on a Samsung TV. In this particular instance, check to see that your Antenna, Cable, or even a View Card has been properly attached to the television. A view card is a card that is issued by a TV network provider that contains a number of channels on it for which you can pay a fee to access them all. Let’s begin the process of scanning for channels on a Samsung TV now that you have connected all of the required components.

1. To begin, ensure that your Samsung TV is turned on and that you have the remote control nearby.

2. Changing the source of the input for your TV is the next step that needs to be taken. You can accomplish this by clicking the button labelled “source” on the remote control for your TV.

3. Check to see that the input has been set to TV at this point.

4. You can also change the source by hitting the Menu button, and then choosing the Source to TV option from the menu that appears.

5. Find the option labelled Settings on your TV and select it.

6. Navigate to the Broadcasting option, and then pick Auto Program from the drop-down menu. On some other Samsung TVs, the Auto Tuning icon will appear rather than the Auto Program icon.

9. The television will now start searching for channels that can be received by using the various options that have been provided.

11. Using the buttons labelled “Channel up” and “Channel down,” it is easy to navigate through the available   channels or change them.

12. Now, if you are not getting excellent signals or if you have the impression that your TV has only found a limited number of channels, it is recommended that you adjust and reposition your TV antenna to achieve the best possible results.
