02/28/18 Cable TV Customers May See Brief Disruptions

It’s Solar Conjunction time again!

☀️🛰️🛰️🛰️🛰️🛰️🛰️🛰️🛰️🛰️🌎
 
If you notice some interference with any of your CBT Cable TV Channels the next week or so, it is most likely due to Solar Conjunction. Interference may include audio, video or both.
 
Twice a year this phenomenon occurs when the sun passes directly behind satellites transmitting cable tv signals. When the sun is aligned with a satellite, solar radiation interferes with the satellite’s signal and thus causes a brief signal outage. Not to worry though, this outage typically only lasts a few minutes (between 5 and 45) and mostly occurs between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
 
This round of Solar Conjunction should end on or around March 9th. We apologize for the inconvenience, however this phenomenon is universal and beyond current technical control. If you have any questions about Solar Conjunction, feel free to contact us.

01/12/18 Stadium Joins Our Line Up

Stadium Joins CBT Cable TV Channel Line Up.

We’re excited to share with you a new addition to our Line Up.  Meet Stadium.

Per their official description, “Stadium is the ultimate destination for the modern day sports fan; a multi-platform sports network that brings together exclusive live games and events, extensive highlights, classic games, original programming, and daily live studio programming. Stadium breaks the boundaries of traditional sports programming and produces world-class sports content every day of the year, delivering to fans on every device.”.

Further, “Stadium was formed when Campus Insiders, 120 Sports and American Sports Network combined forces to take advantage of a combined collection of professional and collegiate rights and full game archives, as well as to maximize access to a broad array of post-game highlights, up-to-the-moment news, and original, long-form programming.”.

Stadium was built through the merging of 120 Sports’ live studio operations, Silver Chalice’s Campus Insiders’ live collegiate games and Sinclair’s American Sports Network’s (ASN) distribution and live collegiate games. The three entities joined forces in the spring of 2017.

Stadium is owned by a collection of industry leaders including Silver Chalice, Sinclair Broadcast Group, MLBAM, the NHL, the PGA TOUR, and Time, Inc.. The network is headquartered in Chicago.

You can watch Stadium on CBT Channel 39.16 and learn more at watchstadium.com.
