CET Debuts New Arts Channel On February 1

CINCINNATI – CET Arts, a 24/7 broadcast channel featuring a variety of arts programming, will debut on February 1 on digital broadcast channel 48.3.


The new broadcast channel will offer a schedule of drama, visual art, dance, painting, literature and music programs. Viewers will have the opportunity to watch reruns of their PBS favorites, such as Great Performances at the Met, Masterpiece, Soundstage, and American Masters, while discovering new favorites such as Classic Gospel, Jubilee, Sierra Center Stage, Theater Talk and more.


The new arts channel will also include “Classic Arts Showcase,” an overnight block of music videos and performances. From 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. daily, viewers can tune in for musical content ranging from classical music to ballet, opera and contemporary dance.


CET plans to collaborate with local arts organizations and content partners to highlight the outstanding artistic endeavors going on in the Greater Cincinnati community on CET Arts. Although full-length broadcasts of area performances will not be available for the channel’s launch, CET plans to include coverage of local arts institutions in the future.


In addition to being available to over-the-air viewers on digital channel 48.3, CET Arts will also be available to Time Warner Cable digital tier customers. CET Arts will replace CET World which is currently broadcast on these channels.
