DIRECTV Customer Service – 855-937-9468 / 800-531-5000


Q: What is happening?

A: DIRECTV subscribers no longer have access to KHON. DIRECTV has/have yet to reach a new distribution agreement to allow the cable television provider the right to continue to air your favorite new stories around Hawaii.

Q: Are you still negotiating with DIRECTV?

A: We were negotiating, and offered multiple times to extend our current deal while we vigorously attempted to provide both sides more time to reach a fair agreement.  Unfortunately, DIRECTV continued to deny our request and that is why your service was abruptly interrupted.

Q: What other programming could I miss?

A: You no longer have access to your local news, emergency service updates and your favorite shows such as the Women’s World Cup Finals on July 7th, NFL on FOX, including Thursday Night Football, the Primetime Emmy Awards and the new season of The Masked Singer.  

Q: Where will KHON programming still be available?

A: No other cable or satellite company is affected; only DIRECTV customers have lost their favorite news, comedies, dramas, and sports.  Other providers are available including DISH (855-898-6730) and over-the-air with digital antenna.

Q: What can I do about this situation?

A: You have choices. Call 855-937-9468 and demand they bring back your favorite local news source! You can also contact other local providers – including DISH (855-898-6730) – and switch to make sure you are treated fairly and get the programming you want.
