witf TV Experiencing Broadcast Signal Impairment

Written by witf | Nov 3, 2011 3:18 PM

To our witf TV viewers:

We are currently experiencing intermittent issues with our satellite feeds from PBS.  The PBS satellite began having problems delivering a clear signal to witf on Wednesday, November 2 about 10am. The engineers and master control folks at both PBS and witf immediately began working to keep witf on the air.

Unfortunately, Wednesday evening, both the Nature and Nova episodes were affected by these difficulties.  We apologize for the disruption this has caused to your television viewing and hope to have the problem resolved ASAP. Our technology staff continues to work with PBS to resolve these issues.  Both programs can be watched in their entirety online:

Nature: "The Animal House- Go above and underground to see “the home life of wildlife.”

Watch online: http://video.witf.org/video/2163770687

NOVA: "What Is Space?" The Fabric of the Cosmos: Probe some of the deepest mysteries of our times: space as a dynamic fabric that can stretch, twist, warp and ripple under the influence of gravity.

Watch online: http://video.witf.org/video/2163057527

If you have a DVR, Nova will also be rebroadcast, Saturday, November 5 @ 5:00am

In rare cases, witf may be required to show recently recorded or older episodes of planned programming until the PBS satellite signal is fully restored.

Many programs air more than one time.  The witf online TV schedule http://www.witf.org/tv offers more information on rebroadcast times (see the image above).  Simply find the program you are interested in, click on the title, then click on WHEN TO WATCH to see additional broadcast times when applicable.

Please feel free to call 717.910.2808 if you have questions.

Thank you for your patience.
