NET’s New Broken Bow Transmitter Install Underway

BROKEN BOW – For those who watch NET, Nebraska’s PBS & NPR Stations, over-the-air in the Broken Bow area, installation of a new transmitter and broadcast antenna is planned for Tuesday, June 23-Friday, June 26.

A press release sent on June 23 said during installation of the transmitter and antenna systems, there will be a television broadcast outage. Removal of the old and installation of the new system should be completed by the end of the day June 26.

Once the work is finished, viewers who watch NET over-the-air with an antenna will need to rescan their television sets.

Performing a rescan of the channels using the remote control that came with the television set will allow viewers to receive a new, improved television signal.

This will not affect most satellite subscribers or radio listeners, but may have an impact on cable viewers. This change is the result of the FCC Spectrum Auction.

For the most up-to-date information, call the NET Help Desk at 800-698-3426 or email for assistance.

The Broken Bow coverage area includes all of Custer County.
