Channel lineup/78501/Slate1/PBS?

Few months ago RGV lost our PBS station which was channel 10. Now these appears to be a PBS station with the channel 12 designation. However the only information available is Slate1 for the channel. Channel 12 is not listed in the channel guide you must enter channel 12 on number pad to access the station. Is this the new PBS station for Rio Grande Valley zip code 78501? Thanks

The FCC continues to squeeze every piece of 'white space' out of the remaining over-the-air TV broadcast channel allocations and hand it to the 5G wireless internet folks.  It is quite possible that your local PBS station was simply moved over from channel 10 to channel 12 last fall.  Since you were kind enough to include your ZIP Code, one of the Spectrum moderators can push your query over to the local technical office for the Rio Grande Valley and ask them to investigate the online channel guide.  It should display the programming details you expect to see.

The local PBS station changed ownership and simply shut down. There is no local PBS station in the 78501 zipcode for McAllen/Rio Grande Valley. Believe the nearest PBS station would be either San Antonio or Houston.....thanks for reply
