KHET, also called PBS Hawaii, is the only PBS member station in Hawaii. Based in Honolulu, KHET first aired in 1966. It is currently owned by the people of Hawaii through the Hawaii Public Television Foundation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and has satellite feeds on all the major Hawaiian Islands to rebroadcast programs outside of metropolitan Honolulu. It can also be seen statewide on Oceanic Cable channel 10.

KHET signed on for the first time on April 15, 1966. Originally known on-air as Hawaii Educational Television (Hawaii ETV), it was renamed Hawaii Public Television in 1972 and became PBS Hawaii in 2006.

KHET broadcasts over-the-air on digital channel 11, with a subchannel(11.2) offering "PBS Hawaii Kids".

PBS Hawaii transmits 24 hours a day on Oceanic Time Warner Cable, but only from 6 a.m. until 12 a.m. over the air. The digital transmitter is on Palehua Ridge, north of Makakilo[1]. The digital transmitter is only 9.5 kW (versus 148 kW for analog), so most Honolulu residents have difficulty receiving the 1080i digital signal[2].
