Q: How can I purchase a copy or transcript of a Knowledge program?
A: Availability of copies or transcripts of programs are controlled by a program's distributor.
Where these are available, we can provide you with contact information for the distributor. Email your request to email@example.com. Please include the name of the series or program, and the date of broadcast.
Q: How can I access Knowledge without cable?
A: Knowledge is available to all BC viewers who subscribe to the "basic" cable package.
We are also accessible within BC and from other provinces within Canada via the satellite providers Bell TV and Shaw Direct. In more remote areas of the province, we can be accessed from local repeater sites with an outside antenna. Please contact your Chamber of Commerce for further information about repeater sites.
Q: Will Knowledge be broadcasting in High Definition Television?

We are now developing plans to support conversion to full HD.

Q: What is Digital TV transition and why is it necessary?
A: Most developed countries have transitioned from analog to digital transmission, or are in the process of doing so. Digital broadcasting provides better picture quality and sound. Canadian over-the-air (OTA) broadcasters (i.e. CBC, Global, CTV) have been mandated by the Federal Government to convert from analog to digital transmission to make more efficient use of spectrum and ensure Canada advances to a more modern digital communications system.
Q: When will the transition to over-the-air digital television happen?
A: The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has set August 31, 2011, as the date for Canada's transition to over-the-air digital television in major markets and on certain channels in other areas. Some stations will be switching before this date.
Q: I watch Knowledge Network using "rabbit ears", will I be affected by the transition?
A: No. If you receive the Knowledge Network TV signal using an outdoor antenna or "rabbit ears", your television will not be affected by the transition. If you receive TV signals via cable or satellite, this transition will not affect you.
Q: What if my local stations are continuing to broadcast in analog?
A: If your local television stations are not switching to digital and are not shutting down their over-the-air activities, this means that they are continuing to broadcast in analog. If this is the case, your television set will not be impacted by Canada's transition to over-the-air digital television. You will continue to receive your existing television services and will not need to buy additional equipment or subscribe to additional services.
Q: Will the transition to over-the-air digital television impact the quality of the signal I receive by cable?
A: No. Canada’s transition to over-the-air digital television does not affect Canadians who receive their TV signals by cable. Cable service providers will act as a “converter box” for their customers who subscribe to analog cable by converting the digital signal back to analog, and offer the digital signal directly to their customers who subscribe to digital services.
