Local Connection: DISH Network

Aloha.  I would like to take a moment to address our viewers who watch us through the Dish Network system.

On July 31, there is a chance our signal will be removed from the dish network system… due to a lack of an agreement between Raycom Media… who owns KGMB and KHNL… and DISH network.

First of all, i'd like to apologize to these viewers for the inconvenience they may face of not being able to watch us.  I'd also like to say thank you for your loyalty.

I've talked and emailed with many of you in the last few days… and i've heard your passionate comments about possibly not being able to watch Hawaii news now.. Our newscasters… and CBS and NBC shows.

You have choices.  Both KGMB and KHNL still have agreements with other carriers and are free over the air.

If you would like to call dish network and express your concern about possibly losing KGMB and KHNL from your channel lineup, you can call them at 1-888-789-2630.  You are paying to receive the KGMB and KHNL signals… ask them for a credit or rebate.
