This page has been updated to reflect the latest information available on the previously announced broadcast outage.
Good news! Ninety-five percent of Kansas City PBS’ viewers have had their service restored thanks to the diligent work of our engineering crews and the acquisition of the needed replacement parts. We are still running at reduced power for a few days which may affect service in rare instances, but we should be back at full power soon.
We thank you for your patience during the repair process. We know that many rely on us for programming via over-the-air broadcast and apologize for this service disruption.
If you are a viewer that relies on a broadcast antenna and performed a channel scan when service was disrupted initially, it is possible that your television removed Channel 19.1, 19.2, 19.3 or 19.4 from your lineup. At this time, we encourage you to conduct another channel scan to restore access to Channel 19’s signal.
There may be a small number of viewers who still have not had their service restored. For those who have internet access, we encourage you to utilize these methods to watch:
- Livestream Channel 19.1
- Livestream 24/7 Kids Channel 19.4
- Stream Shows On-Demand in the PBS Video App
- Passport Streaming Service (a Kansas City PBS Member Benefit)
- KCPBS YouTube Channel
