No Arthur on PBS station WTVS (Detroit Public TV)?

Post by MarleyandPal96 on Wed May 31, 2017 6:51 pm

Anyone in Michigan experiencing this problem?


I can't watch the new Arthur episodes in HD and Dolby Surround because something else replaced Arthur on the schedule!


I even missed the movie and had to watch a crappy computer capture of the PBS Kids site streaming it instead of a national PBS first airing (I've got a home theater which has both Dolby Digital and Dolby Surround, not to mention HD cable box playing in Dolby).

I guess people stopped donating when the infamous "So Funny I forgot to laugh" played.

That's odd; I remember seeing an ad on Detroit Public Television's 24/7 Kids Channel a week or two ago (it was during a Thomas & Friends airing).

If your local station carries the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel, then Arthur should be on daily at 8am with repeats Mon-Thurs at 9pm/5am. PBS does not permit stations to alter the lineup much there, so there shouldn't be many variations from that schedule in most cases.

As for as PBS in HD, it depends on each station. I know many stations don't have Arthur on their schedule at this time simply because the national schedule puts Arthur on at fringe timeslots during the daytime kids block. A lot of stations add/omit programming on the fringe with local programming, unfortunately including Arthur...regardless of your donations sadly.

It might be worth checking your listings starting next week as the schedule is tossed up yet again. Some will be doing double episodes on PBS again -- mine won't though Crying or Very sad

And those promos are not localized, which is pretty annoying. I know in the past, the monthly promotion was for a Peg+Cat special, but my station doesn't even air that show and never aired the special.

You sure it's not on at the 6:30am death slot?
