Temporary Over-the-air TV Broadcast Service Outage

As part of a planned replacement of our television transmitters in Clearfield and State College, WPSU-TV will be temporarily turning off the over-the-air broadcast signal in order to install the new systems at some point during the week of May 10. Viewers who receive our broadcast by antenna, or satellite, will likely lose reception for several hours during the installation. Service on most major cable systems will not be impacted. Live streaming of our programming will continue online at live.wpsu.org and through the PBS Video application during this time. Our engineering team is working efficiently to minimize the duration of the over-the-air service outage so that we may return to regular service as soon as possible. Thank you for your viewership and support of WPSU-TV.

5/11/21 – 9:00 AM Update:  The over-the-air TV broadcast signal in State College has now been turned off as we decommission the old transmitter in preparation for installation of the new transmitter.  We hope to have OTA service returned to State College by the end of the weekend.
