AETN Set for High-Def Launch

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Educational Television Network is to launch a high definition digital channel on September 1, while also broadcasting two standard definition channels.

AETN announced Friday that it will broadcast its primary signal in high-def from 5 p.m. to midnight, Sunday through Friday. AETN Scholar and AETN Kids will be broadcast in standard definition 24 hours each day.

The network said that from midnight to 5 p.m. Sunday through Friday, AETN will multicast four digital channels: AETN, AETN Create/World, AETN Scholar and AETN Kids.

As the nation makes the change to all digital broadcasting at midnight on Feb. 17, AETN will discontinue analog broadcasts.
