Spanish Fork Community Network digital TV supporters will see their rates increment this spring, with the Basic link bundle seeing in excess of a 11 percent expansion.

The Spanish Fork City Council endorsed the expansion in rates during its Feb. 4 gathering after board individuals were educated that SFCN costs expected to go up on the grounds that its expenses for the channels its offers are being expanded.

SFCN Director John Bowcut said most channels have gone up around 6 percent. Satellite TV is losing watchers, so stations are compensating for the misfortune in income by expanding the money related weight on the watchers that remain.

A large portion of the expansion in the Basic link bundle is because of a value bounce in neighborhood channels, for example, channels 2, 4, 5 and 13, Bowcut said. The rates for these channels have gone up 11.59 percent.

These are similar channels inhabitants could get for nothing on the off chance that they have a reception apparatus on their home.

Bowcut said at whatever point SFCN encounters a cost increment, it raises its digital TV rate by the very same sum – to the penny. “I don’t know of any other cable company in the United States that does that,” he said.

In this manner, the expense at the SFCN Basic bundle cost is going from $24.94 every month to $27.83, a 11.59 percent expansion.

The Expanded Basic bundle will see the following biggest cost increment, ascending from $87.55 every month to $93.65, a 6.97 percent expansion.

The expanded link rates will go live on March 21, however clients won’t see an alternate in their cost until their May 1 bill.

Bowcut told the chamber that similarly as the quantity of digital TV clients is going down broadly, SFCN is seeing a diminishing in its client numbers.

“It continues to go down … and we will see that just continue, quite honestly, because the price is getting obscene, and because of that, people look for other ways, plus there are a lot of other options,” Bowcut said.

The uplifting news for Spanish Fork is that SFCN is seeing incredible accomplishment in its task to extend its fiber to the home system all through the city, Bowcut said.

The task has remained in spending plan, rates have not been expanded, no securities have been given to pay for the undertaking, SFCN still introduces it completely free, he said.

“It is just a massive success and a wonderful asset for Spanish Fork,” Bowcut said.
