Technical Issue on TV

Update 10:28AM:  Around 2:00am Thursday (July 3) WITF experienced a failure with our master control system.  This critical piece of equipment switches between different satellite signals, playback of pre-recorded content, and local announcements. We have resumed regularly scheduled programming at 10:00am. 


Around 2:00am Thursday (July 3) WITF experienced a failure with our master control system.  This critical piece of equipment switches between different satellite signals, playback of pre-recorded content, and local announcements.  Currently the system is bypassed with a feed of programming directly from PBS while the control system is getting repaired.

The straight satellite feed from PBS differs from what is normally scheduled locally from WITF.  Here is what you can expect to see in regards to children's programming until further notice:

9:00am - Peg + Cat

9:30am - Dinosaur Train

10:00am - Sesame Street

11:00am - Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood

11:30am - Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood

12:00pm - Dinosaur Train

12:30pm - Dinosaur Train

1:00pm - Super Why!

1:30pm - Thomas and Friends

We will update this with additional details as they become available.  We regret this inconvenience and departure from shows normally scheduled.  The technical staff at WITF are working hard to resolve this issue.
