Changes to AZPM Television Channel Lineup

Effective October 11, Arizona Public Media will consolidate channels

Upcoming Changes to our Channel Lineup AZPM is changing its channel lineup beginning Oct. 11, 2016

On October 11, Arizona Public Media will change its channel lineup.

The change will not affect AZPM’s main HD station PBS 6, which will continue to be available on the same cable and satellite TV channels and over-the-air on channels 6.1 and 27.1.

The programs offered on channels 6.2 and 6.3 will also be provided on channels 27.2 and 27.3 to provide greater consistency, and to make it easier for viewers to find their favorite programs.

AZPM’s channel 27 program services provide over-the-air service to residents in the Catalina Foothills and Pusch Ridge.

Beginning October 11, ReadyTV and World will share the same channel designation, splitting the 24-hour broadcast day as follows:

  • ReadyTV 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
  • World 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.

UA Channel (currently on Cox 116 and Comcast 76) will transition to a digital-only platform, with programs available on azpm.org and on Arizona Public Media’s YouTube channel.

These changes are being made after a careful review of audience viewing trends and program preferences. In addition to creating uniformity in where AZPM television programs reside, these changes will allow AZPM to improve operational efficiency and quality control, while providing more resources to create original programming for and about Southern Arizona.

Arizona Public Media remains committed to its mission to educate, inform, inspire and connect our communities by bringing people and ideas together. A trusted in-depth news source and a provider of intellectually stimulating programming and thought-provoking original content, Arizona Public Media is working hard to build a better Southern Arizona.
