CKWS delays switch to digital transmission


CKWS TV, Kingston, has delayed its switch to digital transmission.

In the Watertown area, CKWS is on channel 11 over the air and on Time Warner Cable. The CKWS transmitter is on Wolfe Island. It will switch from analog 11 to digital channel 11.1.

The delay, according to the CKWS website, is caused by a backlog of paperwork at the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission. CKWS plans to make the switch “in the next week or so.”

Viewers who now watch the station using an antenna will need a digital receiver (found on all televisions sold in the U.S. since 2007) or a digital converter box to continue watching after the switch.

Time Warner is working to ensure that viewers who watch CKWS through its system receive the new digital feed.
