PBS Hawaii… South Points Connection to TV Land

CEO of PBS Hawaii Leslie Wilcox talks about some of the woes that it takes to get PBS Hawaii to the residents on the Southern tip of the Big Island.

Her most recent blog, “For Crying Out Loud, in South Point” she mentions:

…The only “free” TV is PBS Hawaii. We’re the only over-the-air broadcaster that spends time, energy and money to reach the under-served in a large southeastern area of Hawaii Island.

We do it through a series of translator stations, which pick up our signal in Hilo, and pass it along, all the way down to Na’alehu and South Point.  We must go to out-of-the-way places to build and maintain these translators…

PBS Hawaii is the only channel that I DVR now and I rarely watch television much these days.

I’m glad that the folks down in South Point don’t have to scream… “We want our MTV… err PBS”
