On Thursday, April 19, the broadcast tower that serves OPT’s Springfield area viewers collapsed.  Since then, we have been working to restore service to viewers as quickly as possible. 

At this time, we have been able to restore service to satellite viewers, most cable viewers, and a portion of over-the-air viewers in the Springfield metro area.  If you are a cable customer and remain without service, you can assist our efforts by sending your name, location, and service provider to mail@OPTV.org.

We are working hard to restore service to all over-the-air viewers.  Unfortunately, because this requires a more complex solution, we do not yet have a timeline in place for that restoration.  Please know that it remains a priority focus.  We appreciate your continued patience as we work through this process. 

In the meantime, remember that many OPT and PBS programs are available online using your computer, or through the PBS app or PBS Kids app on your tablet, smartphone or streaming device.
