Default Xfinity Test Pattern on PBS

Since yesterday, Xfinity has been "broadcasting" a test pattern on PBS. We have not seen any other programming every time we channel surf past PBS. Anyone else having this problem?
I've had both vaccine shots!

PBS not working on Direct TV - called in - seems to be a problem with the station itself.

Tuesday, Feb. 18, 6:45 a.m.:
Overnight, a fire at the WUCF transmission line caused WUCF to go off-air for many viewers.
Spectrum customers are still able to view WUCF channels due to a fiber connection.
No one was injured in the fire, but currently WUCF channels are not available to those watching via antenna or satellite.
At this point, we do not have an ETA on return, but will keep you updated.

Updates have been posted daily at the WUCF website: WUCF | Home

You can temporarily get around the problem by downloading the PBS APP to your phone, tablet, AppleTV or even Firestick. I can watch the shows there from my iPhone on my TV either with a direct "cast" or directly on the Apple TV and probably FireTV if you have it. Youtube also has many of the recent PBS programs.
