Item #: SCP-XX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XX is to be kept in a small-item locker. Access is prohibited.

Description: SCP-XX is a TV remote control. When used to operate a powered television, the display will change to the FOX 13 news channel local to Sandy, Utah, where SCP-XX was recovered.

When pressed, the channel buttons on the anomaly navigate between versions of the same broadcast. While most are identical, some contain minor differences in names or current events. The volume and brightness buttons function as expected. All other buttons appear to have no effect.

Addendum XX-1: A channel was discovered featuring only a frozen screen from a past broadcast. Based on analysis of archived newsreels, the scene was identified as having been from 1991/03/27.

Addendum XX-2: During a review of footage from initial testing, it was discovered that a series of coincidences prevented SCP-XX's pause button from being tested.

Due to safety concerns, no follow-up testing has been scheduled.
