Analog Shutoff Happening Today at Noon!
The federal government has required all broadcasters to stop using analog channels and switch to digital. As we've been reporting for the past month, our broadcasts of analog Channel 56 will come to an end April 16 at noon, due to repeated outages of the old transmitter. What will not change is our commitment to free, over-the-air broadcasting of our program content to people throughout our coverage area.
We'll still be doing that on our digital Channel 56.1, and offering additional programming on 56.2 and 56.3. All free and over the air to you. All you need to do is get a digital converter box for your older analog TV or get a digital TV. Hook up to an antenna and we're together again. Of course, cable or satellite will also provide you with our programming too.
Broadcast television is still the best deal around, and public television is, in our view, the path for children to be ready to learn at school and adults to keep learning, and exploring new worlds. Thank you for your viewership and support of good old Channel 56. The quality programming continues over on digital. See you there! More information at www.dptv.org/dtv.
