For our viewers, we have a programming update for you. This station is now dark with DISH customers.

In a statement, Scripps said: “After nearly five months of negotiating with DISH and multiple contract extensions, we are disappointed that Scripps and DISH have not been able to reach a resolution to a new distribution agreement. We intend to continue to negotiate as long as it takes to reach a new agreement that returns your local MTN station to the air quickly.”

If you have friends or family who have lost access to this channel because they are DISH subscribers, tell them they should visit our local station website for more information. They also can see us for free over the air or switch to any of the other cable or satellite companies in our area.

MTN stations in Montana include KTVQ Billings, KBZK Bozeman, KXLF Butte, KRTV/KTGF Great Falls, KTVH/KXLH Helena, KAJ Kalispell, and KPAX Missoula.
