NEGAUNEE -- There's good news for those of you who may lose local TV stations like TV6 after the Digital Transition on June 12.
Right now, those with satellite dishes can't pick up TV6 and other U.P. stations.
But TV6's Chief Engineer and Director of Operations, Sonny Reschka, says TV6 has signed an agreement with EchoStar Dish Network to house their equipment.
A similar agreement is expected to be reached with Direct TV by the end of April.
The deal would mean the satellite companies would carry all local channels on their satellite TV lineup.
"Both companies have indicated they want to have this done within the next two months, which would mean by the time we do the Digital Transition June 12, all those people who may lose over the air broadcasts would now have a choice to pick us up over satellite," said Reschka.
Reschka believes the change would increase TV6's audience by 20 percent.
