WATE 6 is no longer available on TDS!!

Contact TDS now at 866-571-6662 and tell TDS: "Bring Back My WATE 6!"

Q: What is happening?
A: WATE 6 is no longer available on the TDS channel lineup as of January 1, 2019

 
Q: What programming could I miss?
A: If TDS does not bring back
WATE 6, you will miss your local news, emergency service updates, and community-focused programming, not to mention highly rated sports and shows such as NBA Basketball, The Bachelor, American Idol, Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Doctor, A Million Little Things… and even The 91st Oscars!
 
Q: Where will ABC programming still be available?
A: Only TDS customers had WATE 6 impacted.  However, viewers can install an over-the-air antenna, or you can simply contact other available providers, including DISH (855-898-6730) and DIRECTV (800-531-5000) to make sure you get the programming you want.

Q: Are you still negotiating with TDS?
A: We have been negotiating tirelessly and in good faith to establish a mutually agreeable contract with TDS, proposing fair and reasonable terms for
WATE 6.  Unfortunately, our efforts have been thwarted by what appears to be a strategy of unrealistic proposals and outright delay by a distributor willing to hold its paying subscribers captive because it won’t agree to pay a fair price for your local ABC station.

Q: What can I do about this situation?
A: You have choices.  Call TDS at
866-571-6662 and demand they bring back your local ABC station! Viewers can install an over-the-air antenna, or you can simply contact one of the other local providers – including DISH (855-898-6730) and DIRECTV (800-531-5000) – and switch to make sure you are treated fairly and get the programming you want.
