About KQED TV
KQED Public Television 9 is one of the nation's most-watched public television stations during primetime with more than 1.5 million households viewing per month. KQED's digital television channels include KQED 9, KQED Plus, KQED Life, KQED World, KQED Kids, and KQED V-me, and are available 24/7 on Comcast.
Since first going on the air in 1954, KQED has been an integral part of the Bay Area's media and cultural landscape. The station produces its own unique local and national programs and collaborates with filmmakers and documentary producers.
Current KQED local weekly series, all offered in high definition, include QUEST (science, nature, environment), Spark (arts), Check, Please! Bay Area (food), and This Week in Northern California (public affairs).
KQED also produces two independent film series: Truly California, which showcases documentaries that focus on local, regional, and statewide issues; and Imagemakers, a collection of the internationally acclaimed short films.
KQED national productions include China From The Inside, Jacques Pepin: More Fast Food My Way, and Jean-Michel Cousteau: Ocean Adventures. In addition, KQED has had a major role in producing programs of local interest to national audiences with such programs as San Francisco Ballet's Nutcracker for Great Performances and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival for Austin City Limits as well as contributing to other national PBS series including American Experience, The NewsHour, and Nova ScienceNow.
