It’s that time of year…

We regret that any of our subscribers are receiving significant TV rate increases, but those increases are necessary to cover the rising fees to carry TV networks.

All packages and promotions that include these services WILL receive the rate increases.

Effective March 1, 2018: (The rates below do not include tax & FCC fees).

Basic TV service $75.00 per month

Broadcast Basic/Lifeline Analog $35.00 per moonth

Digital Basic/ Digital Preferred $10.99 per month

Gualala/Sea Ranch subs ONLY:

Senior/Veteran Basic $73.00 per month

RETRANSMISSION AGREEMENTS

During retransmission agreement times, we receive rate increases to carry channels and although TV subscribers normally get an annual rate increase, the increase has never been enough to cover the actual cost to carry those channels. There is a potential that we will cease to carry KTLA (chnl 5) in Frazier/PMC and KRON (chnl 6) in Gualala/Sea Ranch.

DISH NETWORK & CBS negotiations

We do purchase CBS ( and affiliates) through DISH Network in some areas.

We have not dropped the channels and when the parties have come to an agreements, those channels will be back on.
