    This is very exciting! I would LOVE to be able to see it at home. Is there any way it could be made possible to view it in Saskatchewan, Canada? Even after it is aired on the 29th…online…?? I would so appreciate that.

    Thanks for considering this!

    Thanks for asking Carol. The only way to view this airing outside of the state of North Dakota is to watch it on a ROKU device. ROKU’s can be picked up at most electronic stores.

    It’s great that we can get some of the Bek broadcasting. We get very little local stuff out here with Midco which is more in the valley in ND. They provide very little local broadcasting west of the valley.
