I get my TV through satellite with Century Link. I have lost all reception on Channel 15 which is my PBS station. Does anyone else have this problem and if so, what did you do to get it back. I cannot reach anyone at Century Link to get an intelligent answer.

Go through your list of channels and/or favorite channels. Odds are it somehow got deleted. I’ve had that happen a couple of times.

I finally got an answer from Direct TV - what a surprise, it is money. Until the contract is settles there will be no Channel 15 on Direct TV. Ba humbug.

On the plus side, they usually settle this quickly.

PBS is still operational via ROKU.

I hope Direct settles quickly for you.

We get PBS Channel 15 (Daytona) and PBS Channel 24 (Orlando) over the air. Sometimes the weather messes with Ch. 15, though. Nucky is right, you can stream many PBS programs via the Roku device. If you haven't done so, you really ought to look into streaming, there is so much to watch, when you want to watch it. We subscribe to Netflix and Acorn TV. Acorn carries mostly British dramas and comedies like Doc Martin. I like Netflix because everything they do can be viewed closed-captioned. Sometimes old ears can't decipher the dialogue, especially with foreign films.
