WTIU channel 30 (digital 14) is the local Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member public television station for Bloomington, Indiana, United States, and surrounding areas. Its studios are located on the campus of Indiana University, along with the radio station WFIU. The station serves much of the southern portion of the Indianapolis market, and is also available on cable in Terre Haute.
WTIU also has two digital subchannels: TIU-2, which features educational programming and telecourses; plus TIU-HD, which features high-definition programming, on a schedule separate from WTIU's main channel.
WTIU's flagship original production is The Weekly Special, a public and cultural affairs program.
The Friday Zone, the only other regular weekly original production by WTIU, is also the only produced, edited and aired children's show in the state of Indiana.
WTIU regularly produces documentaries, typically on local or regional topics. Series documentaries include Our Town, focusing on a single community's culture and history, and The Spirit of Monroe County, which explores what makes Monroe County, Indiana the place it is.
The station's digital channel is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming1|
|30.1||1080i||16:9||WTIU-HD||Main WTIU Programming / PBS|
WTIU shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 30, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 14.2 Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 30.
