You can expect to see weather updates every 15 minutes, live video of our newscasts, a constant look at current maps and temperatures and audio news and weather all day.

What's driving these changes: 

We are committed to innovation and constantly seeking to bring our viewers and users the best, most up-to-date content in whatever they choose. The Amarillo viewing market has grown from 11 percent to 18 percent in FREE over the air viewing in the last five years. This growing audience needs diverse program options.

METV is a proven quality programming channel that fits our values and fits our community.

NewsChannel 24/7's changes are driven by many facts as well. In the local and national market place, video online is in high demand. You, our viewers, are more mobile than ever, and we owe it to you to provide as much content to you as we can. This is a launching pad to much more and it gives us a 24/7 stream to deliver breaking or daily news along with weather content, which we all know constantly changes in the Panhandle.
