Upcoming Contract Renewals

Armstrong strives to deliver the best TV programming available with the channels you want at a great value. All programming we offer is subject to agreements with media companies who provide content and the rights to us. These contracts vary in length, but many run for a number of years. Armstrong has consistently reached agreement with programming groups to continue carriage without experiencing an interruption of service. We will provide notification on this site in the event an agreement is not renewed.

Broadcast station signals include multicast channels, if any are associated. Broadcast stations are grouped geographically by Nielsen into designated market areas (DMA). A station may be carried in several markets but not others. Click here to view a map of these markets. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is the regulatory agency for broadcast television.
