Satellite Changes

Change is in the air

Thank you for watching PBS. As a result of a law enacted by Congress (the Satellite Home Viewer Improvement Act of 1999), PBS service on DIRECTV and DISH Network will change for many viewers. As the satellite providers continue to roll out markets where they offer local channels, there will be a shift from the PBS National Satellite Service to the local public television stations.

If you are a DBS customer and live in one of the country's largest cities, you now may be able to watch your local PBS station(s) on DIRECTV and DISH Network as a part of their local channels package. If you are a DBS customer living outside the country's largest cities, please call DirecTV at 1-800-DirecTV or DISH Network at 1-800-333-DISH to sign up for the PBS National Satellite Service.
