KUED supports the University website and other U of U IT projects. KUED also records and broadcasts three or four Hinckley Institute of Politics forums each year.
KUED receives formula-generated funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) that reflects overhead expenses.
The following statutes govern the Statewide TV Administration in addition to the laws previously mentioned:
KUED-TV measures the number of households watching KUED at least once a month and the number of people served by outreach programs. State funding provides about one-third of KUED's operational funding. . The number of "television households" as defined by Nielsen has been decreasing in the market over the last couple of years, indicating that many people are choosing to receive television programming through alternative means, such as online services. Nielsen is amending its definition of "television household" in the coming year to include those that can receive television service through broadband. The television industry continues to see increasing fragmentation as audiences have a greater number of broadcast, cable, satellite and internet options for television programming than ever before.
