WTJR is not carried locally by Dish Network or Direct TV
There has been some confusion recently due to the fact that WTJR has been removed from the local channel packages of Dish Network and Direct TV. Both of these satellite services have opted to only carry the national CTN signal and not pick up the local affiliate WTJR. If you would like to see your local programs and pastors, please contact Dish Network or Direct TV and let them know that you support WTJR and would like to see your local programs.
You can still view WTJR in the local Quincy area with an antenna even if you have cable or satellite service. Most TV’s have multiple input sources, which many of you have your DVD player plugged into one of them, so it’s easy to hook up an indoor or outdoor antenna and receive WTJR and watch any of the 12 local programs and pastors that are produced right here in our studios. Please watch this video for detailed instructions on how to hook up an antenna and still be able to watch your satellite service.
