I'm pleased to inform AVS Forum members in the Madison, WI area that WHA Digital, PBS in Madison, is on the air as of 10:59am today. Look for us on channel 21.1. Currently, and for the next several months, we will be broadcasting high definition content via PBS' HD loop - a 24/7 service available to PBS stations. The loop will undoubtedly get repetitive for frequent viewers, but you will also be delighted to know that the HD loop schedule will include any core PBS programs available in HD (e.g. "Nova," "American Family," "Nature"). In addition, the daytime schedule frequently includes HD broadcasts of series like "Smart Travels with Rudy Maxa" and "Tracks Ahead."
In the coming days a full schedule of programs available on 21.1 will be posted to the digital television area of our website at www.wpt.org.
Additionally, we are setting up a message board on the site where Madison area viewers can post questions, concerns and ideas, and receive timely responses from all local station programmers and engineers. When the site is up and running I will post another message on the AVS Forum.
I hope you'll tune in and enjoy the wide variety of high quality, high definition programming on Wisconsin Public Television.
