KWTV-DT 9.3 is Off the Air

Someone notified me on Twitter today that KWTV-DT 9.3 is off the air.

For those of you who don’t know, 9.3 was used by KWTV during its most recent transition back from its VHF channel to its UHF channel to show a message asking viewers to rescan their channels to pick up the new UHF broadcasts.

Apparently, they now think this process is done or perhaps the FCC wants our broadcast spectrum back. Does anyone have more information?

    Howdy Dennis,

    Sorry I didn’t see this sooner.

    We shutdown RF9 when our daily viewer calls reached a certain level. Essentially, when we felt almost everyone had rescanned.

    The shutdown doesn’t have anything to do with relinquishing spectrum to the government. We were, however, required to notify the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the termination of operation of RF9.

    Thanks for your interest in News9 and KWTV!
