Is there a Channel 29-1 (KBTC PBS Tacoma analog 28)?


I see a digital version on Direct TV and wonder if they are broadcasting and if it is Seattle?

No. KBTC - Tacoma PBS is not yet broadcasting a digital HD (or otherwise) signal. They are still building out their studio and transmitter.


What you see on Direct TV or Dish Network is the analog signal converted into digital for broadcast and reception by their standard def satellite receiver boxes. It is not 'digital tv.'


Got to http://members.shaw.ca/nwbroadcasters for more information. Click on Digital TV.

"The three features of DTV - high definition television (HDTV), multicasting, and data transmission - will present many opportunities for public television to further it's vission and to continue bringing high quality, educational programming to the American public."


Eww! Say no to multicasting and data transmission!! We already have two channels with lowered-quality pictures thanks to multicasting (KCTS, KTWB), we don't need or want any more.
