Bangor Cable Subscribers Wake Up to ‘Great News’ from Spectrum
If you are a Spectrum user, you may have seen this this morning when you turned on your TV.
Spectrum has switched to a 100-percent digital connection today which means people now need to get a digital receiver for all televisions that you want cable to run on, if it doesn't have them already.
This means: no box, no cable TV.
How do you know if you need a box, here's what the Spectrum Communications Director had to say to the Bangor Daily News:
“Rule of thumb: If you connect your TV directly to the cable outlet on the wall, you need a Spectrum digital receiver,” Spectrum communications director Andrew Russell said. “Most customers in the Bangor area have already adopted digital devices for at least one television in their home, so for most, it’s about connecting a secondary television.”
Some customers do not plan on getting additional boxes, some even looking for alternatives to cable.
