DTN is on AT&T U-verse on channel 99. To view on U-verse, go to channel 99, select Durham Television Network and hit OK.​

If you are looking for information on cable television service, or filing a complaint about your cable television provider, you will need to visit the website of the State Attorneys General's Office.
FCC Digital Television in 2009
The FCC's requirement that all broadcast television stations switch to a digital signal by February 2009 does not affect government programming or public access programming because channel 8 is a Time Warner Cable channel via cable television service.
