NOTES FROM THE KNPB TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT:
Due to installation of equipment upgrades, all KNPB broadcast services will be unavailable on Saturday, November 16 from 12:00am to 8:00am. This includes KNPB Channel 5.1, KNPB Create Channel 5.2, and KNPB Vme Channel 5.3. Over the air, Cable and Satellite services will be affected.
Regular broadcasts are scheduled to resume on Saturday, November 16 beginning at 8:00am.
Interruption of closed captioning services:
On November 13, 2013, KNPB experience the failure of its closed caption encoder our KNPB Channel 5.1 service.
This encoder is part of the KNPB transmission encoding system, which compresses the wide bandwidth video and audio signals we use within the station down to a bandwidth that can be broadcast over the air. With this failure, we will be unable to broadcast any form of closed captioning, V-chip data, etc. on the Channel 5.1 service.
This entire system is slated to be replaced Friday evening into Saturday morning, and cc services are expected to be restored after these repairs are made. KNPB apologizes for the inconvenience.
