A Letter from our CEO

Dear Friends of WEDU PBS,

You may have heard that WUSF ceased its programming services on October 15th at 11:59 p.m. On October 16th at midnight, WEDU launched our two newest channels, the 24/7 PBS Kids Channel and CREATE. We have also added many of your favorite programs that WEDU did not already air into our schedules on WEDU and WEDU PLUS.

We also are working to add even more programs from the WUSF TV schedule to ensure a full range of public television programs and services to meet your needs. Of course, securing the rights to new programming and equipment for new channels comes with great expense. We could not do it without your support. If you would like to help with this effort, I invite you to make an additional donation to WEDU’s programming fund.

We hope you enjoy the new channels and new programs coming to WEDU PBS! Thank you for your continued support!

Susan Howarth
WEDU PBS President & CEO

Remember to Rescan

Our new PBS KIDS channel and Create® initiated broadcast signals on October 16. Please remember to rescan if you are using a digital antenna. Some models rescan automatically, while others require you to start the process. Locate the “set-up” or “menu” button on your remote control. If you cannot find the option to rescan, please check the owner’s manual. You can also call customer service for your TV or digital antenna manufacturer. WEDU does not have the capability to provide technical support for rescanning. More information is available at www.fcc.gov/rescan.

PBS KIDS is broadcasting on digital channel 3.5 and Create on 3.6. We hope to see these new services carried on cable providers in the future, but cannot confirm cable or satellite channel designations at this time.
