VPT on U.S. Satellite
Vermont Public Television is available on Dish Network and DirecTV in all Vermont counties.
VPT is also available in Clinton, Franklin and Essex counties of New York; and Grafton and
Sullivan counties of New Hampshire. VPT is part of the local channel package.
Bennington and Windham County Information
Satellite companies offer local channels in the counties the Nielsen company assigns to the
Burlington-Plattsburgh market. Windham and Bennington counties of Vermont belong to
different TV markets, but you can still get VPT and other Vermont channels if you live in one of
these counties. You may need to request them by specific call letters.
To get Vermont Public Television in these counties, ask your satellite provider to add WETK Burlington
(that’s us) and any other Vermont broadcast channels you’d like. There should be no
charge for adding Vermont channels.
U.S. Satellite Providers and VPT’s HD, Create and World
DirecTV and DISH Network carry VPT’s main channel in HD on position 33. We have offered our Create and World channels to both U.S. satellite providers, but neither one has added them yet.
Canadian Satellite Service
Bell Satellite TV does not carry Vermont Public Television. If Bell is your provider, please request WETK-Burlington (call letters of our Burlington, Vt., channel).
Bell’s Fibe TV does carry Vermont Public Television on 224 (basic) and 1224 (HD).
