If you’ve ever wished you could find more information about a program or topic or idea in the WTVP Program Guide, your wish has come true.

Select articles and program highlights in the WTVP Program Guide include a QR code. With most newer smartphones, you can simply view this code through your built-in camera and it will instantly and automatically link you to a website or document related to the material. Older phones may require a separate app. Each code will also have a web address below it that you can use to access the information with your computer or smartphone browser.

You will find information, videos and links on this page to help you take full advantage of QR code technology.

We’re employing this technology:

  • To help you satisfy your curiosity
  • To direct you to a wealth of online WTVP and PBS resources you may not know about
  • To increase the value of the Program Guide to our members


We’ll be adding more QR codes in future issues. Use the code with this article to learn more about the technology and how to use it.

As always, thank you for engaging with and supporting WTVP! WTVP will NEVER share your information with third parties.
