The time has come and NBC Region 8 is on the air. Believe it!
To all of you who reached out to tell us how much you like the new channel, I want to say thank you.
To everyone who reached with questions and concerns, I want to thank you too!
One of the big questions is "Where can I watch the Super Bowl on NBC Region 8?" On Suddenlink, you can see the Super Bowl in HD on channel 247. On Ritter Communications you can watch it on Channel 208 or channel 99. On Paragould Light Water and Cable it's on Channel 4. On Direct TV it's on Channel 7. DISH customers will get the new channel as soon as possible - configuration is in progress.
Most cable and satellite providers sent out notifications to their customers, and I encourage you to give them a call if you have questions. The thing to remember is that a lot of these providers got this new station on their systems so you can watch the Super Bowl.
Some of the systems may move NBC Region 8 to a final home in March. No worries there, we'll update you in plenty of time when these moves happen so stay tuned.
Thanks for watching KAIT's ABC and NBC affiliates and thanks for believing in us! We'll always work hard for you and all of us growing together will make this A Better Region 8.
