SWX on satellite - Spokane, North Idaho News & Weather KHQ.com

Why isn't SWX on DirecTV or DISH Network?

We would greatly appreciate it if you would contact your satellite provider and ask that SWX be given a channel placement. 

Having SWX on satellite is KHQ's number one priority.  Unfortunately, the satellite companies don't see it that way. The response we have received from DISH Network and DirecTV is they don't have enough space for secondary digital channels. KHQ feels local programming should be a high priority.  We are trying to change their minds with the help of our viewers.

So please keep calling and let them know your feelings about how important it is to show local weather and sports on SWX on the Satellite.  Again, KHQ appreciates your help and support with this.
