Jan. 31: Planned Outage & New Channel Lineups

Planned Outage January 31

We will perform maintenance tomorrow morning between 1 and 6 a.m., as we take the necessary steps to send the new interim digital channel lineup to the Sunriver area. During the maintenance window, both analog and digital customers will have brief periods of time where they lose video and Internet service.

Interim Digital Channel Lineup Begins tomorrow!

Existing digital customers will begin receiving either the new “Expanded Basic” or “Expanded Basic with HD+” channel line up at approximately 6 am., after maintenance is completed. For more information and to determine which line up you will receive click here.

We encourage all customers to call us at (541) 312-7228 to schedule your home certification appointment. Read more about the need for home certification.
