LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – If you are having trouble getting Channel 8, KLKN-TV, on your streaming platforms like Hulu or YouTube TV, it’s because of the Nebraska weather.

The tower outside our station took some kind of a hit around 2 am on Wednesday when those overnight storms moved through. We are working with engineering and vendors around the clock to get the services restored, as well as other impacted equipment.

You can always watch Channel 8 News live on our website or mobile apps.

We are aware of the issue and you don’t need to call or email the newsroom at this time.
