Durango Viewers Hopeful Of Getting Colorado TV Soon

Television viewers in southwestern Colorado are hopeful that they will soon get their programs from Colorado instead of New Mexico.

The Durango Herald reports a decision by the Federal Communications Commission has set up rules to provide rural counties access to in-state news and programming from cable and satellite providers, if that's what they want.

Many residents in the southwest Colorado receive their broadcasts from the Albuquerque TV market and they want to know what's going on in Colorado.

Under the new rules, local county commissions would have to petition the FCC on behalf of county residents seeking to receive in-state television stations.
