WOUB TV will soon be distributed by satellite in the Columbus DMA (designated market area) instead of the Huntington-Charleston DMA. On January 1, WOUB was terminated by Dish and DirectTV from their Huntington-Charleston area which currently includes Athens Co. and neighboring rural counties.
Instead, the station will soon be available to satellite subscribers in the 21 counties making up the Columbus DMA and in Metro Columbus.
