What is available on KUAC’s new TV Channel 9.9?
KUAC TV will broadcast 360 North year-round on KUAC TV channel 9.9. 360 North offers Alaska public affairs, arts, culture, science, health programming and “Gavel Alaska”. “Gavel Alaska” is the unedited live and tape-delayed coverage of state government activities, including the Alaska Legislature when it is in session.
Why did KUAC add this new TV channel?
KUAC has always appreciated the importance of civic engagement and is committed to providing our constituents access to their government. Now that technology has evolved to the point that we can utilize our bandwidth for increased channel capacity, it further meets our mission to offer 360 North to our viewers.
How much did this cost?
KUAC purchased an additional channel slot for $6,500 in order to offer 360 North TV 9.9 to our viewers. There is no cost currently to offer the programming.
How do I get 360 North on my TV?
You may already have it! If you tune-in to KUAC TV via broadcast (over the air, antenna), just channel up from 9.1 all the way to 9.9 past KUAC’s audio/radio channels (9.6, 9.7 and 9.8). If it’s not there yet, re-scan your digital tuner until 9.9 locks in. GCI cable customers already get 360 North on GCI Channel 15.
