Digital TV Channels Information

WVIZ/PBS HD, 25.1 is the 24/7 digital, high definition channel providing quality educational, cultural, news and information programs to Northeast Ohio. WVIZ/PBS HD delivers the same trusted television lineup of local and national programming such as Applause, Masterpiece, NOVA, Great Performances, Feagler & Friends and Sesame Street that viewers have come to rely on for years.

The Ohio Channel, 25.2 is a standard definition digital channel available to those interested in local politics from the statehouse 24/7. A mixture of state government, public affairs programming and Ohio based documentaries and programs, it is provided as a service of Ohio’s Public Broadcasting Stations.

WVIZ/PBS WORLD, 25.3 is a 24/7 digital channel featuring PBS' acclaimed documentary, public affairs and news programming in standard definition. WORLD showcases the award-wining series viewers have come to identify with public television.

CREATE, 25.4 delivers public television’s lifestyle shows in standard definition, 24/7. CREATE features many of television’s most recognized personalities and shows from the worlds of cooking, arts and crafts, gardening and home improvement including favorites such as Ciao Italia, Victory Garden, Rick Steves’ travel series, and many more.

Time Warner Cable carries all four of these digital channels and most other cable providers carry WVIZ/PBS HD, The Ohio Channel and are making plans to add the others.

To make viewing WVIZ as easy as possible during the transition, those households viewing WVIZ over-the-air should periodically rescan (or auto-program) the channels of your converter box or digital television and check your antenna placement and aim. You may need to re-aim your antenna as digital signals are very directional in nature. Once you receive the WVIZ/PBS digital signals, picture format will become increasingly important, our recommendation is that you “letterbox” PBS programming for the best result. Your remote control will have a menu or set-up button where you should be able to find picture formatting.
