IdahoPTV Channels To Be Shut Down at Midnight Oct. 8

To accommodate an electrical panel upgrade, Idaho Public Television engineering staff members and contractors plan a Network Operations Center (NOC) power outage at 12 midnight/11 p.m. MT/PT on Monday, October 8.

Because of the outage, all of IdahoPTV’s channels across all stations will be off the air for the first hour or so of Tuesday, October 9.

“This outage should be brief, but the time required to restore all services to all of the state program delivery systems may be on the order of two or three hours,” says Rich Van Genderen, IdahoPTV’s director of technology. “We apologize for this inconvenience.”
