On Wednesday November 30th, lightning struck our transmitter and damaged equipment that sends our signal to many Northeast Ohio viewers. This outage prevented subscribers to Dish Network, Direct TV and some cable systems from watching NBC's highly anticipated holiday programming - Christmas in Rockefeller Center and Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors.
Due to a high volume of requests from viewers who were unable to see the shows, we have received permission from NBC to rebroadcast the shows at the following times:
- Christmas in Rockefeller Center - 1:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. Saturday night/Sunday morning
- Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors - 2:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. Saturday night/Sunday morning
We sincerely apologize to all of those affected by the loss of our signal and understand that these replay times may not be very convenient for many viewers, but it is the only time slot available where we are allowed to air this amount of programming. It is our hope that you can set your DVRs to record them and then watch them later at your own convenience. NOTE: Some programming guides may not update in time to reflect these changes in our schedule, so set your DVR to record whatever shows are listed in those time slots.
If you don't have a DVR, you can watch Dolly Parton's movie online by clicking here or opening the NBC app. Unfortunately it doesn't look like NBC is going to make Christmas in Rockefeller Center available online.
