TV Technical Issues

KQED 9 and 54 over-the-air issues

We are aware that some over-the-air viewers are experiencing issues receiving the KQED 9 and KQED Plus signals from Sutro Tower. This issue is likely being caused by technical work to Sutro Tower that is being performed by their engineers. During the course of this maintenance, the signal is being broadcast at half strength during weekdays and at full power on the weekends. This maintenance may last through the end of December. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please return to this page for progress updates.

As we become aware of technical problems originating from KQED, KQED Plus, or KQET, we will list them here.

Comcast Closed Captioning Issuse

We understand that some Comcast users are experiencing an issue with closed captioning appearing incorrectly or not all. This issue seems to be occurring with other Comcast channels as well. We are in touch with Comcast technicians and hope the issue will be resolved shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will update this page with progress on this issue.
