Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 13th November 1998:
BBC America - cable / Dish Network Top 100 Package channel 135
Saturday at 5PM EST, Sunday at 2PM - Robot - movie version, part 1 of 2
BBC America airs the classic 1st 4th Doctor adventure. Unfortunately, they've aired it so much this year that it's getting a little monotonous. And the heavy commercials and scenes cut out don't help. Still, if you have the Dish Network, this will only be BBC America's first broadcast of the story for you, and it's far better then no Who.
