Kansas City PBS sincerely thanks you for your patience and understanding over the past two weeks as we have worked on repairs to our transmission line to re-establish our over the air antenna signal.

We're happy to report that we expect today, Friday, May 27 will be our final day of repairs. We will be off the air from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Upon completion of tomorrow's work, we will be back to operating at full power, restoring service to all KCPBS viewers. If you're still unable to view Channel 19.1, 19.2, 19.3 or 19.4, we encourage you to perform a channel scan to restore access to KCPBS' signal.

Again, we thank you for your patience during this process and offer our sincerest apologies for this inconvenience. We look forward to returning you to the programs you love.

For those who have internet access, we encourage you to utilize these methods to watch:

We will continue to provide updates through email, including our weekly newsletter Highlights, on Kansas City PBS' social media channels and this webpage.
