There is an ongoing issue with DirecTV's broadcast quality of Arkansas PBS in the Jonesboro/Northeast Arkansas area. Our engineering crew is working with the DirecTV technical team, and have currently been unable to improve their signal. We will continue to work with the DirecTV team to resolve the issue and are exploring other options to deliver our signal to them.
There are more ways than ever to watch the programming you trust and enjoy from Arkansas PBS.
