  • Comcast channels move, Monterey/Salinas & Sacramento/Fairfield

    Monterey-Salinas:
    371 – KQED World
    372 – KQED Kids
    373 – KQED Life
    374 – KQED V-Me

    Sacramento, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Travis AFB and Vacaville:
    390 – KQED World
    391 – KQED Kids
    392 – KQED Life
    393 – KQED V-Me

    Most of the Bay Area remains:
    189 – KQED Life

  • Differences in outside listings with KQED broadcasts

    Paid service providers such as cable or satellite companies, and other scheduling sources such as newspapers or online websites, buy their guide data from outside listing companies. KQED sends correct listings information for all of our programming streams to these outside listing companies 5-8 weeks in advance of our broadcasts. This includes info for KQED, KQED Plus, KQED Life, KQED World and KQED Kids.

    Unfortunately, the listings companies are not always up-to-date with the data that comes from local independent stations (PBS or otherwise) which set their own local schedules, rather than follow a single national schedule that can be used for the whole country, as most national networks and channels do. Or the paid service providers might not have run updates they receive from the listings services. So occasionally some onscreen guides, newspapers, etc., have listings for 1 or more KQED channels that do not accurately reflect our schedules.

    KQED’s own website will always have the most accurate information. The same database that runs our Master Control area also populates our website. This change page will report the changes that have been made since OnQ, our supporting members’ program guide, went to the printer, and since our schedule data was sent to the outside listings companies. The only differences will be those rare technical problems, as described in the “unannounced changes” posting below.

  • By Request: Best of Pledge

    As programs are selected for our fundraising time, the daily schedules for all channels will be updated. Please visit the Daily Schedules for those days to see the latest line-ups – use the calendar on the right to select individual days.

  • KQED 9/KQED Plus unannounced program changes

    Once in awhile, there will be last-minute program changes which will not be noted on this page. Occasionally, there are incidents when our automation equipment simply refuses to play a program. The show is queued up ready to go, but when the start time hits, it simply refuses to play. So the engineers quickly find a similar program already in the memory bank to air as a substitute, and there’s no chance to post anything about the change on this page.

    If you don’t see any notes here regarding the program you’re interested in, please feel free to email tv@kqed.org when you notice one of these unannounced changes, and we will check with the programming folks to find out if the program will be rescheduled relatively quickly, or simply allowed to come back up in its next normal rotation spot.
