KTIV Television is increasing its commitment to the Norfolk, Nebraska area with improvements to the station's translator tower located east of Norfolk.

The construction project continues, but requires the existing analog signal to go off the air for approximately three weeks, starting on June 16, says KTIV's Chief Engineer, Richard Herr. The interruption to the signal will only affect viewers who receive television channels using an over the air antenna. Any cable or satellite viewer of KTIV should not see any interruption in their service.

Once the new transmitter goes online on approximately July 20, KTIV's signal from Norfolk will increase and will be a change from the current analog channel to a new digital channel. The digital broadcast will feature KTIV's high definition program stream which includes NBC on KTIV 4.1, Siouxland's CW on KTIV 4.2 and the new classic TV network Me-TV Siouxland on KTIV 4.3.

"This is an exciting time for our station and another example of KTIV's strong commitment to Northeast Nebraska and the Norfolk area," says KTIV Station Manager, Bridget Breen. "We've already made numerous improvements to the translator site and the last step in the process is the replacement of the transmitter, which will bring our signal and more stations to many more viewers in the area. We apologize for having to take down our signal for a few days to make this happen, but the new signal will be a major improvement and worth the short term disruption."

Once the transition is complete, viewers who use an antenna will need a digital television or digital converter box to receive KTIV's translator signal out of Norfolk. This change will not affect viewers who use cable or satellite providers.

For more information about this transition, please call 800-234-5848.

KTIV Television is Siouxland's NBC affiliate, KTIV 4.1, and also broadcasts the CW Television Network on KTIV 4.2 and Me-TV Siouxland on KTIV 4.3. KTIV is a subsidiary of Quincy Newspapers, Inc. of Quincy, Illinois.
