Channel 12’s over-the-air transmission in Colorado Springs and Pueblo will change to digital on January 13
DENVER – (January 8, 2010) – On Wednesday, Jan. 13, KBDI-Channel 12’s over-the-air transmission to Colorado Springs and Pueblo will change to a digital signal, a change that will provide viewers two additional channels from Colorado Public Television.
While the change is being made, both the analog and digital signal will be unavailable for a few hours that day. Viewers will be able to check the station’s website at www.kbdi.org for progress reports.
“After the change is complete, if our viewers turn on their TV and find Channel 12 is black, they will need to re-scan their digital TV converter,” KBDI Engineer Mark Seewald advises. Some viewers will need to re-scan twice.
With the new digital signal, viewers will see three channels from KBDI. (The signal is moving from UHF Channel 32 to a new permanent frequency on VHF Channel 31; the on-screen program guide will display the channels’ signals as 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3 once the frequency is acquired.)
