We’ve had some technical issues related to the broadcast of NATIONAL PARKS over the past two nights for over-the-air, DirecTV and Insight cable viewers. We certainly understand the frustration about the quality of the broadcast signal to those viewers and sincerely apologize for the disruption of your enjoyment of National Parks. There has been no issue with the signal for Time Warner and WOW cable viewers.

We have identified the problem (a faulty relay switch in our microwave transmitter), and we are confident that we will be able to get the issue corrected by tonight’s broadcast, so please tune in this evening!

In the meantime, last night’s episode ( the second in the series) will be broadcast tonight at 8pm on WOSU.PLUS: this channel offers a one-day delay of WOSU TV’s primetime schedule, but is not available on DirecTV or AT&T due to their decision not to carry additional channels from public television stations across the country.

To find out what channel WOSU PLUS in on with your particular service, visit the following url: http://www.wosu.org/television/tv-channels/.

In addition, WOSU plans to broadcast the series again during the month of December. Although it is a few months away, it is another opportunity for viewers to watch the series. Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns, and again our most sincere apologies.
