IPTV's broadcast serving Cedar Rapids and Waterloo to be interrupted in September

Posted: August 28, 2018

Effective the week of September 3, 2018, Iowa Public Television’s transmitter (KRIN Channel 32) serving parts of eastern Iowa including Cedar Rapids and Waterloo will be temporarily out of service. Repairs are needed on KRIN’s antenna and transmission line. Repair work will take place predominantly during daytime hours. Whenever possible, KRIN will resume a low power broadcast transmission during prime time. Crews are working diligently to restore full broadcast service as soon as possible.

The majority of viewers with cable or satellite service will not be impacted by this service disruption. During the outage, broadcast viewers in eastern Iowa may try receiving IPTV's signal via Channel 24 from Mason City or Channel 12 from Iowa City. 

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 Iptv.org/iptv-kids 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.

IPTV’s local programs including Market to Market, Iowa Ingredient and more are available to watch on demand at Iptv.org/watch. Local shows and many popular PBS series including PBS NewsHour, Antiques Roadshow, Nature and NOVA are available on demand through the PBS Video App.
