FIRST ON THE BLOG (other than AZFamily.com/KPHO.com): We were supposed to tell you this weeks ago, but we forgot. Thankfully, an email by Jeremy led me a reminder to post you about this.
Since Monday April 13th, 2015, KTVK 3 has moved its 24/7 news channel from cable, known as the Arizona NewsChannel to over-the-air and renamed as 3TV 24/7. The new channel is still the same as what it was on cable, except the reach has increased and still remains on Cox Cable on channel 86 as well as now being over-the-air on 3.2. It was on 82 from its founding in 1996 until moved to over-the-air.
3TV 24/7 features LIVE simulcasts and rebroadcasts of all 3TV News newscasts, including Good Morning Arizona, Good Evening Arizona, 3TV News at 9:00 and on weeknights, 3TV News at 10:00. The only time 3TV 24/7 gets interrupted is 3 hours of E/I programming on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Other than that, its news from KTVK, 24/7.
Also on that day, KTVK 3 added a 24/7 weather channel that was moved from their sister station, KPHO 5 under the same name it was before it was moved, CBS 5 Weather NOW. That channel is on 3.2 over-the-air and on Cox Cable channel 87. That branding though is expected to change in the future to reflect its new position.
So if you’re looking for more news and weather, then just turn to 3TV on KTVK.
