We are aware that some Comcast/Xfinity customers have lost access to local radio stations in the upper 900 channels, particularly KQED 88.5 Public Radio on channel 960. Comcast has begun another system-wide upgrade of their equipment.
It is our understanding that late last year some Xfinity customers received notices along with their bills that, in order to maintain some of their services, such as On Demand and/or the local radio stations, they would need to upgrade their settop boxes.
You will need to contact their customer service staff in order to discuss acquiring a newer box.
All KQED television and radio stations and the live fm stream will be off the air late Friday 1/13 early Saturday 1/14 beginning at midnight for approximately two hours to perform maintenance and upgrades to our electrical system. These improvements will help KQED maintain and continue our broadcast service to the community. We will return to our regularly scheduled programs as soon as work is completed. Thank you for your patience.
