KITU-TV is a religious television station in Beaumont, Texas, broadcasting locally on RF channel 33 as an affiliate of TBN.


Founded November 21, 1984, the station is owned by TBN, under the license name of Community Educational Television.

Digital television[edit]

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

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.[2]

KITU-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 34, on that date. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 33.[3] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 34.
