Maintenance for the AETN broadcasting equipment is moving along, right on schedule! Though our digital subchannels aren't back on the air yet, we're on track to return to our normal broadcasting schedule by next week. And while we're waiting for maintenance crews to finish, we're taking the opportunity to update equipment to avoid similar issues in the future.

While routine maintenance is done at our current broadcast equipment site, AETN is installing a new, taller tower at our headquarters and relocating broadcast equipment to avoid similar interruptions in the future.

 The old tower is lowered down to be dismantled.(The old tower is lowered to be dismantled. The new tower is visible in the background.)

Our tower crew has successfully installed our new tower and removed and disassembled the older tower. As we continue to receive news about the broadcast equipment's relocation, we'll post updates so that you're aware of our progress! Everyone at AETN is working as quickly as possible to restore our viewers' regular programming. We appreciate your patience!
