How to Watch KVIE2 and KVIE WORLD
All four of PBS KVIE’s channels are free to receive over the air, and we offer them to free for service providers. To find the channel designations for your service provider, visit our Schedule page. In the top left corner of our schedule module (under the date, next to where it says “Current Provider”), click “Change Provider” and select your provider. The channel number will now appear in the schedule below.
Regrettably, nationally the satellite providers (Dish and Direct TV) have chosen not to carry any of the PBS stations' sub-channels even though these channels are available to them at no cost.
However, if you have a High-End Top Box from Direct TV or Dish Network, you may be able to add an UHF/VHF antenna to the back of your High End Top Box. Just look for the Antenna In connection on the back of the HETB and perform an autoscan from your television remote. Once this task is completed, you will receive PBS KVIE subchannels and all of the other local channels.
