How to Add a Channel Manually to a Samsung LCD

Samsung LCD TVs are designed with an automatic channel search feature that scans your television service connection and adds all of your available channels to your saved channels list. Channels that do not have a strong signal or that were not available when you performed the automatic channel search will still appear on the channel list, but are not available when scrolling through the channels. You can manually add channels that are not available so that they appear when you scroll through channels on your Samsung LCD TV.
