Starting this month, we have completed our transition to a unified public broadcasting schedule throughout Oregon. Working with Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), we began to make changes to our schedule back in May. See below for most of the major schedule changes.
Through our partnership with OPB, we are now able to purchase and broadcast many more of the shows you’ve requested. Beginning this month, you’ll be able to see more British comedies. Our Brit-com survey favorite, Doc Martin, begins Thursday, July 19 at 9 p.m. New Tricks returns to Saturday nights at 10 p.m. Last of the Summer Wine moves to Saturday at 6:30 p.m., following Lawrence Welk, which starts a half-hour earlier at 5:30 p.m.
The biggest change most of you may notice is that the PBS NewsHour will start a half-hour later, airing at 7 p.m. And the programs that used to air after NewsHour will now be seen before it, starting at 6 p.m., including This Old House, Ask This Old House, Growing a Greener World, and b Organic.
Some programs have also moved to SOPTV-World or SOPTV-Create. It may be helpful to look at our list to see how you can receive our three television services. Unfortunately, subscribers to DIRECTV and Dish can only access SOPTV-PBS at present. You might consider installing an outdoor antenna so you can receive all of our channels for free.
