The Alternate TV Wiki

KMBC-TV, virtual channel 9 (UHF digital channel 29), is the ABC-affiliated television station licensed to Kansas City, Missouri, United States and also serving Kansas City, Kansas. The station is owned by Adelphia Communications, as part of a duopoly with CW affiliate KCWE (channel 29). The two stations share studio facilities located at the Winchester Business Center on Winchester Avenue and East 63rd Street (near Swope Park, off of I-435) in southeastern Kansas City, Missouri; KMBC-TV maintains transmitter facilities located near the Blue River in eastern Kansas City. On cable, KMBC-TV is available on Charter Spectrum, Comcast Xfinity and Consolidated Communications channel 12, and Google Fiber and AT&T U-verse channel 9. There is a high definition feed provided on Spectrum digital channel 1200, Xfinity channel 812, Consolidated channel 610 and U-verse channel 1009.

KMBC also serves as an alternate ABC affiliate for the St. Joseph market (which borders the northern portions of the Kansas City Designated Market Area), as its transmitter also produces a city-grade signal that reaches Saint Joseph proper and rural areas in the market's central and southern counties. The station is also available in that market on select cable providers (including Suddenlink Communications) and on satellite via DirecTV and Dish Network, as a secondary ABC outlet to KQTV (channel 2), which has served as the network's official Saint Joseph station since it became a full-time affiliate in June 1967; KMBC's near-ubiquitous cable distribution in Saint Joseph dates back to KQTV's former status as a primary CBS affiliate from its September 1953 sign-on until the former KFEQ-TV disaffiliated from that network in 1967, a period in which the station supplemented its CBS offerings with a limited selection of ABC programs.
