Iowa Public Television’s broadcast serving Lansing area temporarily interrupted for equipment updates

Iowa Public Television was scheduled to replace the broadcast antennas serving the Decorah and Lansing viewing areas beginning July 23. The replacement process will cause a temporary service outage for several hours both Tuesday and Wednesday, July 23-24, while the existing antennas are removed and new equipment is installed. The outage was expected to begin around 9 a.m. each day with service being restored by 7 p.m. IPTV’s crew will work to limit the necessary outage as much as possible.

During the outages, PBS KIDS programming, usually found on IPTV’s primary channel and IPTV KIDS.2, is available to live stream, with many shows on-demand, at and through the PBS KIDS Video App on mobile devices and streaming services, including iOS, Android, Amazon, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast and the PBS KIDS Plug & Play.

Many of IPTV’s local programs including Iowa Outdoors, Iowa Ingredient, Market to Market, Iowa Press and more are available to watch on demand at Additional shows and many popular PBS series including PBS NewsHour, American Experience and NOVA are available on demand through the PBS Video App.
