PBS39 Updates


Regarding ongoing Audio issues with PBS39 viewers
on Comcast, Fort Wayne

For the past few weeks, we’ve gotten lot of calls, emails and occasional notes about PBS39’s channels as seen through Comcast in the Fort Wayne area. Specifically, the major issue seems to be sound and other audio bleeding over from other channels that Comcast carries onto channels 39.1 (seen on Comcast/Xfinity Channels 3, 240 and 1003) , 39.2 Comcast/Xfinity channel 241), 39.3 (Comcast/Xfinity Channel 242) and 39.4 (Comcast/Xfinity channel 24).

So you know, we are and have been aware of this problem and contact Comcast so that they can apply a remedy as soon as we are aware of each instance. Also, please note that our signal for all our channels going out over-the-air are blissfully un-encumbered by these issues as they are originating with the re-transmission of our signals by Comcast.

We share your frustration with this situation and want to thank you for calling, writing and emailing us the minute you notice it. However, sharing this frustration is of little comfort when this occurs within a program you’ve been wanting to watch or record.
