As of today, I lost 3 international news channels (NHKWRLD 35-2, France24 35-3 and RT 35-4).Has anyone experienced this signal loss also?

MiND TV is Off-Air

POSTED ON FEBRUARY 18, 2014 //
Last week MiND TV had a serious failure of its transmitter systems. This has caused all MiND channels to be off-air since that time: MiND (35.1), NHK World (35.2), France 24 (35.3), RT (35.4) and MHz World (35.5). We are doing everything we can to correct the situation and get back on-air as soon as possible.

If you would like to know more, please continue reading.

In the 21st century, we tend to take television distribution for granted, but it involves a complicated technical process. Briefly, here’s how our system works:

1. We build channel 35.1, MiND, from programs and interstitials at our headquarters in Philadelphia. We receive our sub-channels and then simply redistribute them: NHK from Japan, France 24 from Paris, RT from Washington DC, and MHz Worldview from Virginia.

2. In our master control, we combine all five these channels into a single transmission which travels via a dedicated broadband line from our headquarters (about a mile north of the Liberty Bell) to our broadcast tower (near Manayunk).

3. The transmitter sends the whole signal to your home. If you are watching over the air, with a home antenna, and to the cable and satellite providers who then send it to you through Comcast, Verizon, DirecTV, Dish Network, CableVision and RCN.

We apologize for this inconvenience and assure all of our viewers that we are working very hard to reestablish our signal as soon as possible. Thank you for watching the MiND channels.
