Cable service should be better

Published 12:02 am Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Natchez deserves better Cable service. Some of the stations just go off for a time.
The schedule lists baseball and what you get sometimes is poker or skateboarding, or who knows what.
The several times I called Cable One about these problems, I was told it wasn’t their fault, it’s the station’s problem.
We no longer can get Jeopardy, a very popular program. Why? Vidalia can get it on Cable One.
Natchez needs help.
When we can’t get the stations we are paying for, we should get credit on our bill.
See below for a list of reasons for my letter that I have noticed in the past few days.
4July 19 — Channel 45 lists FSSO MLB, but what is showing is soccer
4July 20 — Channel 13 comes on and off, with picture but no sound. Then at 6:30 p.m., it has a very dark picture for the fourth night.
Channel 6 lists 4 p.m. news, but screen is blank. The sound comes on and off. At 4:30 p.m. news the sound and picture is messing up.
Channel 32 lists Clark Howard, but it’s not on most days.
4July 21 — On news for 6, 6:30, and 7 a.m. the picture and sound is all messed up.
4July 22 — Channel 6 has no sound or movement for 6:30 p.m. news
4July 25 — Channel 13, at just before 7 p.m., just before the final Wheel of Fortune, the station went blank
4July 27 — Channel 23 from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., the picture is dark
Channel 25, 5 p.m. has blank screen
Channel 45 lists MLB and skateboarding and bicycle riding was on.
