WPXI-TV's new translator in New Castle will improve some viewers' access to the station's TV signal, the station announced Wednesday.

The translator will give viewers in Big Beaver, East Palestine, Ellwood City, New Wilmington, Slippery Rock and surrounding areas better access to WPXI's signal on digital TVs or with digital-to-analog converter boxes, according to WPXI, which is part of Atlanta-based Cox Media Group Inc.

The signal is broadcast on digital Channel 33, which should appear as 11.1 on TVs. Memorable Entertainment Television, or Me-TV, should appear as 11.2.

To receive the signal, viewers should rescan their converter boxes and digital TVs. Those with cable, fiber or satellite service will not be affected.

For more information, call WPXI's technical hotline at 412-918-8181.
