KTRE now available on DISH

FROM THE EAST TEXAS NEWSROOM (KTRE) - After months of anticipation, KTRE is now available on DISH satellite.

KTRE General Manager Pierre Cromartie first announced the agreement with DISH in June. However, issues with KTRE's delivery of a signal to DISH delayed the progress.

"We apologize to our viewers for the delay, but our engineers have worked hard since then on getting a signal to DISH and we're excited the time has finally come," Cromartie said.

KTRE will be available to all counties in the Tyler-Longview Television Market, which include Angelina, Nacogdoches, Cherokee, Rusk, Houston, San Augustine and Sabine counties.
