AETN Still Working to Restore Service after Tower Collapse

CONWAY, AR - The Arkansas Educational Television Network is still working to restore service to some analog customers after a 2,000-foot TV tower collapsed last week, knocking out service.

The collapse disrupted the analog signal of KETS, a Public Broadcasting Service affiliate.  AETN executive director Allen Weatherly says the channel is out for many viewers who don't have satellite or cable service, which use a digital signal for AETN.

Weatherly says the station hopes to restore service within the next two weeks.

The KATV television tower near Redfield collapsed Friday afternoon.
