Q.
Why does Dish Network broadcast WRDE in SD and not HD?
A. We are sorry that Dish does not broadcast WRDE/NBC in HD - this is very frustrating & we completely understand your frustration. Many people write us, call us, email us, leave messages on Facebook, etc regarding this issue. Short answer is: it's not WRDE. Dish Network has repeatedly told us that until they get more HD space on their platform, they will continue broadcasting WRDE in SD. If you are a Dish Network customer, please keep the pressure on them and express your unhappiness... hopefully they will upgrade their services soon.




Q.
Why is WRDE not on Verizon FIOS?
A. Verizon FIOS still does not carry WRDE. This affects about 2000 customers in and around the Millsboro/Long Neck/Lewes/Rehoboth area. We have lobbied and continue to try to get Verizon to pick up WRDE. If you are a Verizon customer, please keep the pressure on them. NBC programming is exceptional & we regret that you are not able to watch.
