FROM THE EAST TEXAS NEWSROOM (KTRE) - The anticipated addition of KTRE-TV's signal to Dish Network on Oct. 1 has been delayed due to problems with KTRE's delivery system.
The good news is engineers have found a solution and expect to have the equipment installed and ready to go sometime within the next 4-6 weeks.
"We regret any inconvenience this delay may cause to our viewers or Dish Network customers, however, when you're working with several entities on a project of this magnitude it's hard to anticipate every problem," said Pierre Cromartie, VP/GM KTRE-TV.
"Our engineers will continue to work diligently on using the most effective, cost efficient way to get our signal to Dish Network for broadcast. We ask that you continue to bear with us. We hope to have these issues resolved soon," Cromartie said. "We appreciate your patience and look forward to joining the Dish Network family."
As this project moves forward we will keep you updated on its progress and will publish the new launch date as soon as it's scheduled.
