OUR PROBLEM: Lincoln County is currently in the Spokane DMA (Designated Market Area), as regulated by the FCC. This means, the Big-4 networks (ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX) available to us via “cable or satellite” television are the “Spokane” channels and in a different time-zone.
THE HISTORY: The Spokane DMA assignment was originally established in the 1950’s and is outdated today, given our much closer association with Kalispell and Missoula DMA. Montana customers should have a first priority of watching Montana channels and not have Spokane forced upon us.
SEND AN EMAIL/MESSAGE: If you support this challenge, please send a message to our Congressional representatives in Washington D.C. now that our DMA change request is filed at the FCC: Senator Tester, Senator Walsh and Congressman Daines contact info is below. Senator Tester and Congressman Daines are very familiar with our effort and spoken favorably in support. Senator Walsh is new, but expected to do the same.
