AETN On-Air Channel Information

AETN PBS

PBS, an affiliation of local stations around the nation, does not produce programs but aggregates programs on behalf of the member stations.

ATTENTION: Cable One Subscribers in Texarkana and Jonesboro

We know you love public media, and we take pride in serving all of Arkansas. Unfortunately, effective June 19, 2018, Cable One has stopped carrying all of the Little Rock television stations, including the signal from AETN’s transmitter KETG in Gurdon. Although we regret this decision, here are some options to continue being part of the public media family.

If you live in the Shreveport, Louisiana, Designated Market Area (DMA), you will no longer receive AETN’s signal. Cable One will now carry Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB).

You do still have AETN viewing options:
  1. You might still be able to receive AETN’s four channels broadcast by KETG with an outdoor UHF/VHF broadband antenna with a 90-mile or greater range. Antenna height will affect reception.For more reception tips, visit aetn.org/onair/troubleshooting.
  2. Visit aetn.org/online for all of the different ways to watch AETN. If you are a member of the AETN Foundation at the $60 or higher level annually, many of the programs you love are available on AETN Passport (aetnfoundation.org/passport).
  3. You also have the option of using a satellite service provider in your area.

All queries and comments should be addressed to Cable One’s help desk at 903-838-2225. Additional contact methods are available at cableone.net/contactus.

We appreciate each and every one of our viewers and work to provide the best audience experience we can deliver. Thank you so much for your loyalty, and we hope you continue to value and support AETN.
