*WSEC TV – AT&T and Satellite Viewers Only
WSEC is not being carried on AT&T Uverse and DirecTV services in your area any longer due to an issue with a third-party company. An issue with the service contact with this company has caused a service disruption resulting in the loss of WSEC TV and WEIU TV for AT&T and other DirecTV satellite customers. We and our partners are working to restore service. However, we are unsure as to when service will return. Thank you and we apologize for the inconvenience. [Updated 4-6-21]
