Comcast has recently been notified that PBS affiliate WUSF (Tampa, FL) will cease operations on October 15th, 2017 as a result of the FCC Spectrum Auction.

WUSF is a PBS affiliate carried on our cable systems serving Central Hillsborough, Lake Wales, Sarasota, Venice and Venice South.

The WUSF signal contains their primary (SD/HD), Create, Kids and Knowledge sub-channels, however we do not carry all programming in all systems listed above:

Central Hillsborough ( SD/HD/Create/Kids)
Lake Wales ( SD/HD/Create/Kids/Knowledge )
Sarasota ( SD/HD/Create/Kids/Knowledge )
Venice ( SD/HD)
South Venice ( SD/HD)

 

All of WUSF's TV channels will cease operations on 10/15/17. 
This situation is out of Comcast's control and is at the initiation of WUSF.
