KRCB Public Television, based in Rohnert Park, will expand its viewing audience beginning in August.

KRCB will be carried on Comcast Cable in areas of the South Bay and East Bay where it has not been previously available.

Viewers will be able to access all of the station’s public broadcasting programs on Comcast Digital Channel 200 as part of a partnership with San Mateo’s KCSM Public Television and Comcast.

KRCB signed on in 1984 to serve primarily the Bay Area’s northern counties.

Over the years, the station has grown to serve areas as far north as Hopland and Mendocino and south into San Francisco and Oakland.

This latest cable expansion, coupled with improved, digital, over-the-air signal and satellite coverage, will make the locally owned and operated public station available to more than 2.5 million homes, KRCB estimates.

KRCB is a partial PBS affiliate, broadcasting programs presented by PBS as well as independently produced specials and series.

The station broadcasts on digital channels 22.1, 22.2 and 22.3. KRCB is also seen on Channel 22 via Comcast Cable, AT&T U-verse, and Dish and DirecTV satellite services across.
