Viewer Message: V-me Digital Channel Turnover

Support Provided By

Why can’t I receive V-me on 28.3 anymore?  Why did you get rid of it?

As of Mar. 30, 2017 V-ME is transitioning to a commercial ad-supported channel and will no longer be available on 28.3. We are a public media organization and therefore, we do not distribute any programming that includes commercial advertising. KCET is in the process of determining what might replace V-ME, and in the meantime will offer a robust line-up of original and acquired programs from both of its services, KCET and Link TV.

What other digital channels do you run?

KCET also operates digital channels 28.1, 28.2 and 28.4.

  • On 28.2 and 28.3, you will find an array of high-quality programs from KCET and Link TV. 
  • On 28.4 we distribute NHK WORLD TV, which provides 24-hour English language programming from Japan—news, lifestyle and cultural programs--produced by NHK, Japan’s sole public, independent broadcaster.
  • KCET’s HD over-the-air channel is 28, but please check our channel locator to better determine on which channel KCET is available in your area. You can find our channel locator at the bottom of any of our web pages at www.kcet.org.

How can I continue to get V-ME programming?

Learning to Live Again: A Lazarus Tale from the COVID-19 Front Lines

Vicente Perez Castro, a 57-year-old cook from Long Beach, could barely breathe when he was admitted to Los Angeles County’s Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. At a certain point, the doctors told his family that he wasn’t going to make it. Months later, here he was — an outpatient at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center in Downey, the only public hospital in the county whose main mission is patient rehab.
