WPSU's research-based public issues and community engagement programming (Common Ground Lobby Talks and Conversations) have been broadcast on WPSU's primary channel, featured on line on the station's and the University Place website, and are available through Comcast's Video On Demand Penn State service.   Additionally, segments related to the Penn State Cooperative Extension are posted on University Place. PreK-12 learning objects are published on WGBH's award-winning Teachers' Domain, a searchable digital library available free nationally to teachers and students.   Some videos for K-12 have aired on WPSU's primary channel during the kids' block of programming as interstitials.

WOSU's STEM-focused programming is broadcast on WOSU PLUS and is available on wosu.org.   The content is now delivered on a one-hour program slot branded University Place, airing Sunday evenings at 9:00 and Thursday afternoons at 1:00 on WOSU OHIO.   The first University Place broadcast was on February 7, 2010.   Beginning September 2010, University Place is also airing Fridays at 10:30 a.m. and Sundays at 10:30 a.m. on the Ohio Channel, operated by the state. The learning objects can be accessed on universityplaceonline.org and on teachersdomain.org under the Ohio Collection.

WPT uses multiple delivery platforms to distribute University Place programs as widely as possible. Firstly, WPT broadcasts University Place programs on one of its three digital multicast channels, The Wisconsin Channel, which features statewide and regional programming.   University Place programs air in two branded programming blocks every day (9:00 am - noon and 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday; 9:00- noon and 3:00 - 6:00 pm Saturday and Sunday) The Wisconsin Channel has statewide over-air coverage except for the Milwaukee area, and various cable providers carry The Wisconsin Channel. University Place programs are in broadcast rotation for at least two years. The WPT University Place broadcast schedule: http://wpt.org/universityplace/schedule.cfm

University Place programs may also be viewed on the WPT web site in two ways: on The Wisconsin Channel live stream which is synchronous with the over air broadcast, and streaming on-demand from the WPT University Place web archive. All WPT web video is posted in the PBS Comprehensive Online Video Ecosystem (COVE) online video database.   A search for video on COVE results not only in local station content but programs from other stations in the PBS system - meaning local station programs will reach a national audience.
