Get Help With KQEH TV Channel Changes

KQED removed the KQEH over-the-air television signal from the Monument Peak Tower, located in the San Jose area, on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. We will now broadcast our full suite of channels (KQED 9, KQED Plus, KQED World and PBS Kids) on Channels 9 and 54 from Sutro Tower in San Francisco, and on Channel 25 from Fremont Peak Tower in the Monterey/Salinas/Santa Cruz area. This change will affect a small number of households, predominately located in the eastern Bay Area, that still depend on antenna reception. It has no impact on residents who receive their television via cable, satellite or the Internet.

If you're using an antenna and are experiencing reception problems, you may need to rescan your television.

  • Additionally, you may also have a rescan option on the remote for your converter box or digital TV. Select "scan" or "autotune" from your TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process. You can usually find instructions by pressing the "set-up" or "menu" buttons on your television or digital antenna remote control. If you have difficulty, consult the owner's manual for more detailed instructions on how to run a channel scan, or contact customer service for your TV or converter box manufacturer.
  • If that fails, direct your antenna towards the San Francisco (Sutro) or Salinas (Fremont Peak) towers, if possible.
  • If you have a roof antenna, we recommend hiring an antenna installer to make these adjustments to your antenna.
