KETH-TV, virtual channel 14 (UHF digital channel 24), is a TBN owned-and-operated television station located in Houston, Texas, United States. The station is owned by the Community Educational Television subsidiary of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, and serves as the subsidiary's flagship station. KETH maintains studio facilities (which are based alongside CET's general offices) located in the Alief section of Houston, and its transmitter is located in unincorporated northeastern Fort Bend County (near Missouri City).

History[edit]

The station was founded on October 12, 1983, and first signed on the air on July 16, 1987.

Digital television[edit]

This station's digital signal, like most other full-service TBN owned-and-operated stations, carries five different TBN-run networks.

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming
14.1 480i 4:3 TBN Main TBN programming
14.2 TCC Hillsong Channel
14.3 COMBO JUCE TV/Smile
14.4 Enlace Enlace
14.5 SALSA TBN Salsa

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.[1]

KETH-TV discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 14, on that date.[2] The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 24, using PSIP to display KETH-TV's virtual channel as 14 on digital television receivers.

Programming[edit]

As with other Community Educational Television stations, KETH carries almost all of the TBN network schedule; in addition, the station carries some locally produced programs: We Speak Inglés (a local version of Praise the Lord), Up with the Son and Joy in our Town.
