Where to Watch

  • Over-the-air: For over-the-air antenna users, the Detroit PBS Kids 24/7 Channel will be available on 56.2 on January 16, 2017.  The WORLD channel is moving to 56.4. If you do not see all 4 channels, run the “scan” function on your converter box or digital TV set, usually on the remote control, labeled “set-up” or “menu” or some similar term.  
  • Cable/Satellite: Detroit Public TV is offering all four channels (WTVS, Kids, Create & WORLD) to cable and satellite providers. If you are a cable user and not able to find the new Detroit PBS Kids 24/7 channel, ask your provider whether the channel is in your line-up. If not, ask them to consider adding the channel. Channel number assignments are determined by your provider. The TV schedules module should be updated soon with the channel numbers - but it may take some time to populate the systems.  We know that Comcast (in most areas) around 1/17/17, WyandotteCharter will launch on 2/7/17, Bright House has not announced when they will add the channel.
