Durango TV (DTV) is Durango’s original local television station serving the greater Durango area on Charter/Spectrum Channel 15. FASTSIGNS|Durango TV leases and operates the local channel.
Durango TV provides Durango residents with daily newscasts from KUSA Denver 9 NEWS. When Denver 9 NEWS finishes its broadcasts, Durango TV switches to local programming, including our short collection of news stories produced by Durango TV News.

Denver-based news programming rarely covers news outside the Front Rage. To fill the gap, FASTSIGNS|DurangoTV launched Durango TV News in October 2013 with relevant stories about Southwest Colorado. The show includes headline news stories, local business stories, and features about the people, places and events that make Southwest Colorado the special region that it is.
Durango TV News runs on Charter/Spectrum Channel 1. It airs before and after Denver 9 NEWS and several additional times per day. News stories are updated daily.
Durango TV News also runs closed captioned news stories on a growing number of digital displays around town waiting areas where customers have waiting times between 5-15 minutes.
Durango TV Station shares content with Telluride TV and partners with other video production companies to offer a wide variety of programming for our viewers, i.e. Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame Video Series, Small Business Revolution – Main Street USA, and more.
