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

History[edit]

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.

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming
34.1 480i 4:3 TBN Main TBN programming
34.2 TCC Hillsong Channel
34.3 COMBO JUCE TV/Smile
34.4 Enlace Enlace
34.5 SALSA TBN Salsa

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.
