KBYU Eleven is a viewer-supported service affiliated with the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and airs related programs like Antiques Roadshow, Curious George, Sesame Street, Nova, and PBS NewsHour. It also produces local programs like BYU sports, university lectures and performances, and the BYU news shows True Blue and BYU Weekly, and lifelong learning programs like Total Body Workout; Small Fortunes: Microcredit and the Future of Poverty; Ancestors and its follow-up The Generations Project; and Real Families, Real Answers.
KBYU Eleven is part of BYU Broadcasting, a service of Brigham Young University. The station is transmitted via direct broadcast, television translators, and cable carriers throughout Utah. On June 12, 2009, KBYU ended analog transmission as part of the federally mandated digital television conversion. Ground was broken on May 7, 2009, for a new BYU Broadcasting Building, which will unite staff and services into a single locale. In the meantime, KBYU continues to operate from its studios and master control suite at the Harris Fine Arts Center on BYU campus, as well as from the production and administrative facilities at its current headquarters in South Provo.
