In an attempt to maintain affordable retransmission fees for our video customers, the city has decided not to renew our agreement with Sinclair Networks.
The main channel this will affect is KTUL Channel 8 out of Tulsa. KTUL Channel 8 is a duplicate of our KHBS ABC- Ft Smith Channel 10. Due to our location, we are required to carry the Big 4 channels (ABC-NBC-CBS-FOX) out of Northwest Ark. Over the years, DiamondNet has tried to maintain the Out of Market Tulsa Duplications due to our viewers’ preferences. DiamondNet can no longer justify these huge price increases from these programmers and their requirements to carry additional stations as well.
Effective January 31, 2024, the following channels will no longer be available for viewing:
- Channel 8 KTUL Tulsa
- Channel 28 Comet
- Channel 70 TBD
- Channel 148 Tennis
