Cable TV changes coming June 30

The UNI cable TV channel lineup will change to digital only on Tuesday, June 30. This will require all TVs to have a digital tuner. Most flat screens purchased since 2007 have digital tuners. For TVs that don't support digital channels, an external tuner can be added for about $50 per display. When the change takes place, all televisions will need to be rescanned to receive the channels, following the same procedure when setting up a new television. If you have any questions, email Denny Reimer or call 273-6285.
