KBCB is a television station in Bellingham, Washington, which airs on digital UHF channel 19, though through PSIP the station appears as 24.1 and 24.2. It is carried on Comcast, Dish Network, and Verizon FiOS and a strong over-the-air signal that blankets Vancouver, BC and Victoria, BC.
The station signed on as KEGA on February 10, 1989. It gained its current call-sign on October 2, 1989.
On August 1, 2011, KBCB added the Spanish language network Estrella TV as a subchannel.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming|
|24.1||1080i||16:9||KBCB-DT||Main KBCB programming / ShopHQ|
|24.2||480i||4:3||KBCB-D2||Estrella TV (Spanish)|
|24.3||KBCB-D3||Main KBCB programming / ShopHQ|
KBCB shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 24, on February 17, 2009, as part of the federally mandated transition from analog to digital television (which Congress had moved the previous month to June 12). The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 19, using PSIP to display KBCB's virtual channel as 24 on digital television receivers.
