Cable or Satellite?

The choice is easy.

Easier installation. We just connect your new converter box to our fiber-optic network. No bulky satellite dish. No messy wiring. No dangerous trips to the roof.

Easier on your wallet. If you have a HD converter box, you have free HD channels. Satellite companies charge monthly fees for their HD programming and we don’t.

Easier connection. Satellite dish reception can be obstructed or temporarily blocked by rogue clouds. Unlike the weather, cable service is predictable.

Easier updates. We can beam system updates and new features to your converter box without an installation visit. You’ll be first in line to get the latest technology.

Easier savings. Create a custom bundle by adding Internet and phone service to your bill and save loads of cash every month.
