DTV Day is Here

Reports, so far, indicate that the changeover to digital-only broadcasting is preceding smoothly, as expected. A few TV stations are experiencing issues, but they are the exception, not the rule.

If you have a TV set that is no longer picking up local stations, reference this Q&A, and consider contacting us for service.

      We “translate” digital broadcast signals to analog so that customers who have no converter box and older TV sets can still watch those channels.

    Since the DTV transition here in the Mountain Home, AR area, I’ve notcied that KWBM (my31) cased analog operations and didn’t transition to DTV. Will Suddenlink be replacing programming that KWBM’s channel occupied with another station or network?

      Larry — We were recently informed by KWBM management that they are in fact still broadcasting a signal, but it is too weak to reach us. We are continuing to work with KWBM and will do everything we can from our end to pick up their signal, although there‚Äôs only so much we can do; ultimately, KWBM may need to boost its signal.
