From Mississippi Public Broadcasting:
This is an important message for all MPB “Over the Air” viewers. You know, those of us who use an antenna to receive #MPBTV
As you probably know, there are different channel numbers for each of our eight towers around the state. After each of these channel numbers there are sub-channels: dot one, dot two, dot three, and dot four.
On Monday, December 12, our dot one and dot two channels will change. MPB HD will move to dot one. A brand new 24/7 children’s channel, “PBS KIDS
,” will premiere soon on dot two. Sub-channels dot three and dot four will continue to carry Create TV
channel and MPB Music or Think Radio, just as before. The change should not require any action on your part. However, if there is a problem, you may need to use a digital tuner to rescan for these channels to appear.
Cable and satellite viewers should not be affected. For more information, visit: mpbonline.org/channelchange
Not sure why MPB didn't do this with the digital transition. Really didn't make sense to continue broadcasting a standard-definition signal on their .1 sub-channel.
