WILL TV 12 Urbana, IL has sent out an e-mail to viewers regarding the Series 1 Doctor Who package for public TV stations:
... I'm writing to let you know that we are among the U.S. public TV stations picking up the Eccleston episodes this spring. My schedule is not yet firmed up, but my hope is to premiere the series during our spring pledge drive, possibly as early as Saturday, March 3. The regular run would start sometime in mid-March, and I'm looking at a Sunday 6:00 pm CT slot, with a Saturday late evening repeat. More details when I have them...
Other stations to have announced that they bought this package to date: KTEH/KCAH San Jose/Watsonville, CA, KBTC/KCKA Tacoma/Centralia, WA, and WCET Cincinnati, OH. Expect an increasing number of announcements as the Spring approaches.
