The Lawrence Journal-World reports the station can be seen by AT&T U-Verse customers in Kansas City. Recent upgrades mean programming will be seen in high definition. KU j-school faculty say they hope to soon be in the Topeka and Wichita markets.
Steve Lambert, manager of installation and maintenance for KU Information Services, said he helped install and upgrade KU’s infrastructure to help the university transmit the signal to AT&T. As a result, the channel will now be available in high definition for on-campus cable subscribers, he said. Using several existing pieces of equipment, the cost of the necessary upgrades was about $4,000 or so, Lambert said.
“Families can watch when the students are doing the news,” Lambert said. “It’s kind of fun.”
