AETN broadcasts Arkansas House of Representatives special session on second digital channel

Posted 17 Feb 2010

“This is an important event in that it will be the first time in Arkansas history that the state’s House of Representatives sessions will be delivered into the homes of Arkansas citizens,” AETN Executive Director Allen Weatherly said. “We thank those of you who will help us make this historic event happen.

“This is something that the state’s two satellite providers (DirecTV, Dish Network) will not be offering as it is their prior decisions to only carry a station's primary signal – in our case AETN-1 (AETN-PBS HD) – and nothing else.”
