The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has ruled that satellite television providers must offer Mon and Preston County viewers access to Clarksburg stations.

The action comes after county commissions in both counties petitioned the FCC for the change. Currently, many customers of DISH Network and DIRECTV offer only the Pittsburgh stations as “local” to their customers in Mon and Preston Counties.
