  • KQED Life will go off the air on 12/15/2017

Several of the most popular exercise, cooking and lifestyle programs exclusive to KQED Life will now be scheduled on KQED Plus and KQED 9, where they can be experienced by more viewers. Find the KQED Life schedule changes here.

  • 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.

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

    As of Tuesday 8/25/2015, Comcast/Xfinity has moved four of KQED’s channels to new numbers in two of its service areas. The new info is:

    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
    190 – KQED World
    191 – KQED V-Me
    192 – KQED Kids

  • 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.
