Window to The World Communications presents WYCC NFX beginning March 1, 2020
Window to the World Communications, Inc. to Offer FNX | First Nations Experience
WWCI announces that starting March 1, 2020 it will present FNX | First Nations Experience – the public media channel featuring Native-produced and themed documentaries, dramatic series, nature, cooking, gardening, children’s, and arts programming – on WTTW-operated WYCC channel 20.1. MHz Worldview has announced that it will cease its over-the-air broadcast on February 29, 2020. Viewers can find all WTTW and WYCC programming schedules on wttw.com. View WTTW and WYCC Schedules.
What is WYCC’s relationship to WTTW?
As a result of WYCC’s participation in the Federal Communications Commission incentive auction for broadcast spectrum sale, WYCC temporarily ceased broadcast operations on channel 20 on November 27, 2017. In March 2018, with FCC approval, the WYCC license was transferred by the Board of Trustees for City Colleges of Chicago to Window to the World Communications, Inc., parent organization of WTTW.
Will WYCC’s primary channel (20.1) programming be coming back?
A significant amount of the programming viewers enjoyed on WYCC’s primary channel (20.1) is available on one of WTTW’s content services – on WTTW (11.1), WTTW Prime (11.2), WTTW Create (11.3), WTTW Kids 24/7 (11.4), WTTW WORLD (20.1), wttw.com, and the WTTW/PBS video app. In November 2017, WTTW added Miss Fisher and Dr. Blake Mysteries to our WTTW Prime lineup, and our weekend lineup on WTTW's primary channel includes some of the British comedies and mysteries many enjoyed on WYCC.
I was a member of WYCC. Will I still have my membership to WYCC?
WTTW honored all active WYCC memberships as of November 2017 so, at that time, WYCC members became WTTW members. If you have any questions about this announcement, or your membership, please contact WTTW Member and Audience Services at (773) 509-1111, ext 6.
Is WYCC affiliated with PBS?
WYCC is no longer affiliated with PBS. WTTW is the primary and only PBS station in Chicago.
