Click! Network and Fisher Communications have reached an agreement, so KOMO and several other stations are once again available on Click! Cable TV.

The electronic guide for these stations may take up to two days to load. 

“I am very thankful for the loyalty and patience that Click! customers showed in the past month,” said Click! Network Manager Tenzin Gyaltsen. “We will return that loyalty by continuing to do all we can to offer the best service and lowest rates possible.”
