Programing a Phillip Magnavox color TV before remotes

How do you program the channels on a color Phillips Magnavox TV before they had remotes? This TV has a off&on button a volume button and a channel up and down button. There are no other button any where, front or back. It never had a remote. It is programed now to get channels 3, 4, 5, and 13. It has a great picture but we would like to add more channels.

That seems a little odd to have unit without a remote and no other way to add or remove channels. The only thing I could think of would be some combination of the buttons -- holding the channel up/down buttons at the same time for a few seconds, or perhaps in combination with power button. Holding the two channel buttons, turn on the power.

Search extensively for a manual online. eBay might have one for your model for sale. Contact the manufacturer. On some older RCA, there is a really well hidden door with the necessary controls behind it.
