KPSP-TV (Cathedral City, CA)

KPSP-CD is the Class A CBS-affiliated television station for the Coachella Valley in the southern region of the U.S. state of California, licensed to Cathedral City. It broadcasts a high definition signal on UHF channel 38 and a standard definition digital signal on UHF channel 42.2 from a transmitter on Edom Hill in Cathedral City. The station can also be seen on Time Warner Cable channel 2. Owned by the News-Press & Gazette Company, it is sister to ABC affiliate KESQ-TV, Class A Fox affiliate KDFX-CD, low-powered CW affiliate KCWQ-LP/LD, and low-powered Telemundo affiliate KUNA-LP/LD. All five outlets share the same studios at Melanie Place in Palm Desert. Along with other major Coachella Valley television stations, the station identifies itself on-air using its cable designation (CBS Local 2) rather than its over-the-air channel position. The unusual practice stems in part from the area's exceptionally high cable penetration rate of 80.5% which is one of the highest in the United States. Source
