ACES Transition Plans
Updated August 8. 2013
We have completed the process of migrating to an all-digital delivery system. This gives us the ability to provide more content to you with a better picture.
TURNING OFF ANALOG
As of August 7, 2013, we have shut off all analog TV channels. There are still some analog signals on our system with no picture or sound but there are no analog TV programs.
WILL YOUR EXISTING TV WORK?
Most TVs sold since 2008 have digital tuners. If your TV supports "Clear QAM" no converter box is needed.
DO YOU NEED A CONVERTER BOX?
TV's without a "Clear QAM" tuner will require a converter box to work on our cable system. Many converter boxes cost more than a new TV. One inexpensive converter box that will work on our cable TV system and with most TVs is the iView 3500STB. It can be purchased at Amazon and other online resellers for about $40.
The $40–$60 converter boxes sold in Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Radio Shack etc. WILL NOT WORK as they do not support Clear QAM.
They were required by federal law to work with antenna signals only so they do not support digital cable TV signals.
