As you can see already WCYB and ourselves have reached an agreement and it is back on. WBTV however is still down due to contract and transmitter problems on their end. We have no news at this time on when and if it will be back.
Country Cablevision, Inc.
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.
Country Cablevision Inc.
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.

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.
