Local Connection: Dish TV - Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL

Local Connection: Dish TV

Aloha, well if you are a subscriber of DISH, you may be at risk of losing Hawaii News Now on KGMB and KHNL. Now as you may know, our station has to reach agreements with the cable and satellite companies that bring our signal to your home.

Now most of the time, these negotiations are handled quickly and behind the scenes with no interruption to your service. In fact, you rarely are aware of those negotiations, which in our view, is how it should be.

Unfortunately to date, we've been unable to reach an agreement, so you could lose our station and the news, weather and sports that you and your family rely on. And that also means you could miss Hawaii Five-0, America's Got Talent, The Voice, the NFL and the Olympics.

You know here at Hawaii News Now on KGMB and KHNL, we deeply value our relationship with our viewers throughout Hawaii. And we've been here for over 64 years serving the community, supporting local charities and highlighting the issues and politics that affect us each day.

So we hope that we're able to reach a fair agreement with DISH by August 4th. That will keep Hawaii News Now on KGMB and KHNL on their system here in Hawaii. And we promise to do all that we can to make that happen.

So in the meantime, we'll keep you updated and please, remember you always have choices. We're free over the air and available through other providers in our community. And we're also available via the Hawaii News Now news and weather apps and HawaiiNewsNow.com for live streaming of our newscasts.

So take a moment now to download the Hawaii News Now app and please go to www.ourlocalcommitment.com for more information.

    Trump has already rejected the idea of bringing in the FBI to reopen its background check of Kavanaugh. Should he order such a review, it would likely delay a confirmation vote until after the election.
