Additional Channels ...
Cable systems in Oklahoma City and Tulsa are carrying four OETA channels – OETA HD, OETA Okla, OETA Create and OETA Kids, with efforts underway for all cable and satellite providers in the state to carry the channels.
Both channels, as well as Okla, have been made available for free to Oklahoma's cable/satellite providers. Contact your provider to inquire about how you can receive OETA Okla, Create and Kids.
Create and Kids are currently available through Cox Digital Cable in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. This is due to the larger bandwidth required to air OETA programming in high definition. OETA Okla will take up the rest of the government-allotted bandwidth.
