NYC Public Broadcaster Returns to Digital Transmission
New York City's Thirteen/WNET public television station reestablished its digital signal with a low-power transmitter ten months to the day after the destruction of its original transmitters on Sept. 11. Thirteen is also currently sending a reduced-power analog signal from the Empire State Building.

With the relaunch of its digital signal, Thirteen introduced Kids Thirteen, New York City's first 24-hour digital broadcast educational channel for children, and Thirteen HD, which will feature hi-def digital programming produced by Thirteen and other PBS producers .

Thirteen's digital service is available to over-the-air viewers in a limited proximity to Thirteen's broadcast center. Currently, Time Warner cable carries the digital signal and multicast programming. Cablevision will begin carrying the digital service soon, and the station is in negotiations with a third cable system.
