Beginning Monday, June 1, viewers in the Pacific time zone will see a one-hour shift in the broadcast schedule on our PLUS, WORLD, CREATE and PBS KIDS channels. Programs that currently broadcast at 7 p.m. on these four channels, for example, will begin broadcasting one hour later at 8 p.m. beginning June 1.
Programs on our main IDAHO channel, which made the one-hour time shift several years ago, will not be affected by the current change.
This change allows us to broadcast programs across all five of our channels at a consistent time throughout Idaho. It also allows us to simplify our online and print broadcast schedules — eliminating the confusion caused by our current split time designations (5 p.m. Mountain/4 p.m. Pacific, etc.).
Live events such as the governor’s press conferences, presidential State of the Union addresses, emergency broadcasts, etc. will continue to be broadcast in real time across both time zones.
