KTVZ’s primary transmitter experienced a minor outage around 4:34pm on Thursday June 16th. Services including 21.1 (NBC) 21.2 (CW) and 21.3 (FOX in SD) were affected for Over The Air, Dish Network, and DirectTV users. This outage only lasted a few minutes as services promptly returned. We are actively monitoring the transmitter to avoid any additional down time.
Thanks for your viewership!
Yesterday, March 26th 2016, we had technical issues with our Over The Air transmission that reduced our total power output on our Ch 21 transmitter. Some homes receiving over the air transmission through antennas may have experienced issues. We resolved the issue that we had yesterday but are still experiencing a separate issue that has resulted in a reduced overall power. We are working with our transmitter vendor to get the problem resolved as quick as possible.
Unrelated to the above issue, we did experience a technical problem with Ch 39’s transmitter that has reduced our power output. We are in the middle of trouble shooting this problem and are working towards a timely resolution.
Thank you for your understanding.

All services were restored around 1:20 AM.
Directly following the conclusion of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon we will be performing maintenance on our distribution to BendBroadBand. There will be momentary disruptions in all our services over the course of the hour scheduled maintenance window.
We will be implementing a redundancy into our system to ensure that BendBroadBand customers will receive our signal throughout certain equipment failures as a secondary/backup feed will be delivered to BendBroadBand.
Thank you for your viewership as well as your understanding of this maintenance window.
