Multi-room DVR service now available to Fiber customers

Multi-room DVR services are now available to Fiber Optic customers for an additional fee*.  What you would need is the monthly service, one DVR box and an HD box.  Multi-room DVR will support 1 DVR and up to 3 HD boxes.  Multi-room DVR service works using the MoCA technology.

What is MoCA?

MoCA (“Multimedia over Coax”, pronounced Mocha) delivers the same high-speed network connection as an Ethernet cable through your existing coaxial cable (the wire used to receive cable TV) to any room in your home.When setting up a MoCA adapter in your home, you can connect MoCa enabled devices (Arris DVR, Cable Modems**, and more), and receive cable TV while connecting to the home network through your existing coax cable, making it a more secure connection without additional wiring.Note: If a TV signal can be received from any given outlet, it can support MoCA.

You can record anything on the DVR and watch the recording from any HD box on the Multi-room DVR network.  You can schedule a later recording from the guide at an HD box but you cannot record, pause, or rewind live TV from the HD box. You can fully control the recorded program from the HD box once it is recorded on the DVR.

Call us today at 800-722-4074 and ask us about the new Multi-room DVR service.

*Not available to customers without Fiber Optic service.
**Cable Modems are not supported at this time.
***DTA devices do Not support MoCA.

WBTV and WCYB CHANNELS DROPPED FROM LINEUP

Notice to our cable subscribers

Due to the ever increasing cost of station program fees, plus the fact we carry two other CBS network stations. After midnight 12/31/14 we will no longer be carrying WBT-TV on our channel # 3. We plan to begin carrying WLNN MTN18 from Boone as soon as some technical problems are cleared up. This is an independent station and carries some of the school ball games from YANCEY and MITCHELL counties.

Due to the same cost problems and the fact that we carry another NBC channel, We will no longer be carrying WCYB after midnight on 12/31/14. We are replacing WCYB with PBS-EX, The Explorer Channel

We know that no one likes changes and we apologize, however this action is being taken in order to hold down the cost of service to our subscribers.

Viacom/MTV Network Channels May Go Dark.

We are currently in talks with Viacom, the owner of cable networks such as Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, TV Land, BET and many others. Viacom has demanded a rate increase that’s 40 times the rate of inflation*. That’s like pulling up to the gas pump and finding out that gas has gone from $3.50 a gallon to $6.00—overnight! And Viacom may demand we drop their networks if we don’t agree to their proposal.

Significant network fee increases directly impact your bill and rest assured – we’re on your side to keep these fees low.

2013 Launch

We are pleased to announce the newest addition to the CCVN family…Fiber Optic Services. Fiber optics are laser-generated pulses of light that travel over hair-thin strands of glass fiber. Because light travels faster than any other power source, fiber optics make everything faster. Uploading, downloading, image quality and phone clarity are all improved because fiber optics send information with the speed of light.
