Do you keep copies of everything you have ever aired?
We keep shows to which we have current broadcast rights or those which we plan on airing again, but we do not maintain a complete library of all shows aired.
How far in advance do you schedule programs?
PBS Utah schedules its programs about a month or two in advance.
Can you rebroadcast shows?
Yes, but it is dependent on the broadcast rights we have to the show. If you see a show that you'd like rebroadcasted, you can send a message to Viewer Services or call us at (801) 581-3064.
Does each program on PBS Utah only air once?
This is dependent on the show and its broadcast rights. We have the rights to re-air some programs 2 or 3 times, while other shows we are only allowed to air once.
Can I purchase a copy of the show you aired?
Many PBS and local PBS Utah productions are available for purchase. Check out Shop PBS Utah to see the PBS Utah productions and Shop PBS for PBS productions. Additionally PBS kids merchandise can be purchased here. Because of broadcast rights issues, some productions that have been aired (other than those produced by PBS Utah) cannot be sold or distributed.
