KACV-TV is a public television station in Amarillo, Texas, broadcasting locally on channels 2.1 and 2.2  as a PBS member station. Founded in 1988, the station is owned by the city's community college, Amarillo College. KACV-TV is operated on Amarillo College's Washington Street campus, along with sister-station KACV-FM; the station's transmitter is located north of Amarillo in unincorporated Potter County.
Amarillo was one of the last major cities to get its own PBS station; prior to then, viewers in the Texas Panhandle watched PBS either on Amarillo's commercial stations (on a per-program basis), or via cable on Dallas' KERA-TV, OETA from Oklahoma, or New Mexico's KENW.
The station also produces local programming such as "artZONE," "A Conversation with Ken Burns" and "Braggin' Rights: The Coors Cowboy Club Ranch Rodeo."
On September 3, 2013, KACV announced its re-branding to "Panhandle PBS".
The station's digital channel, VHF 8, is multiplexed:
The HD service is also carried on the Suddenlink Amarillo cable system.
Regional signal carriage
