Hot Springs gets Public Television Service

HOT SPRINGS — KSKC Public TV has activated a translator to serve Hot Springs, and east and north of Rattlesnake Butte as far as Niarada. KSKC broadcasts PBS and local programs via five transmitters to the Flathead Reservation area from offices and studio in Pablo.

Over the air, viewers will see three streams, 27.1, high definition PBS, 27.2, a mix of local and PBS programs and 27.3 a message system with National Weather Service audio full time from Missoula. Over the air, viewers will need to do a channel scan to pick up the signal and will need some type of indoor or outdoor antenna depending on their location. Hot Springs Cable has added 27.2, the standard def signal with local and PBS programs to their lineup.

TV Schedules are available at Buck’s Grocery in Hot Springs and the Hot Springs Telephone office as well as online at where Internet users can navigate to KSKC and the Program Schedule. KSKC is owned and operated by Salish Kootenai College and will celebrate 25 years of operation in April, 2013.

Special thanks go to the Rittenour Fund, Sanders County Arts Council, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes and Hot Springs Telephone for their assistance and support.
