Topeka customers of Cox Communications who don’t have a digital converter box will start losing access to channels Tuesday.
Full-power broadcast stations switched from an analog signal to digital for their over-the-air transmissions in 2009, but cable companies have had more latitude in when to change. Dennis Clary, spokesman for Cox, said all channels available to Kansas customers will switch to digital by Jan. 12, but some areas will have earlier deadlines.
“If a Cox customer who’s on analog signal does not have a converter box, they will cease to have any service” in January, he said.
Tuesday will be the first stage of a “peel-back, ” which removes a few channels at a time, in Topeka, Clary said. Starting Tuesday, A&E, Animal Planet, E!, Food Network and TV Land will switch to digital, meaning customers who can’t receive that type of signal won’t be able to watch them.
On Nov. 3, the signal will go digital in Topeka for six more channels: ABC Family, AMC, History, FX, TBS, HSN and QVC. All other channels except broadcast ones will switch to digital on Nov. 17, and the last few will convert by Jan. 12, Clary said.
“All you have left between Nov. 17 and Jan. 12 is the broadcast stations, ” he said.
People who have modern televisions were able to continue accessing channels during the broadcast transition to digital in 2009, but Cox customers who had new sets but no converter box reported Tuesday that they weren’t able to access the channels affected in the first peel-back.
People who need a box can order one at by calling (860) 757-3075 or by visiting the Cox store at 1109 S.W. Wanamaker. Every customer can get one box free for a year, though some may be eligible for two free boxes for two years, depending on their service plans. After the free period, customers can rent the boxes for $2 per month, though people receiving Medicaid can get a cheaper plan. People who need more than one box because they have multiple televisions can order additional ones, but will have to pay the full rate from the beginning.
The digital channels will have better picture and sound quality, an on-screen program guide and parental controls, Clary said. Customers also will receive more channels, he said.besides india holi is also celebrated in is india beside china casio beside india india map with beside countries island beside india sea beside india east of india beside you india between england india between pakistan border india between england live score india between sri lanka india between pakistan india between china border india between afghanistan india between 1947 to 1950 india beyond 2020 india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities essay india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities essay writing india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities in tamil india beyond meat india beyond 2020 ppt india beyond 2020 challenges and opportunities essay in tamil india but but india hindi meaning not india but bharat buy ps5 india india developing but defencepk amazon india buy buy iphone india midasbuy india india by lil durk india by lil durk lyrics india by religion india by design india by train india by language india by election 2021 india by state india contra fund invesco india contra fund invesco india contra fund direct growth invesco india contra fund login invesco india contra fund review invesco india contra fund value research kotak india contra fund invesco india contra fund morningstar despite india india covid despite vaccine india festival despite covid india china despite india cases rise despite lockdown india during ww2 india during covid india during the renaissance india during the cold war india during ww1 india during imperialism india during british rule map india during diwali even india even in hindi meaning india odd even rule india odd even even india bellen even india bellen samenvatting even india bellen tegenlicht except india latest news india except corona country except india india for kids india for you india for u india for you manteca india for you antioch ca india for mayor india for tourists india for everyone india from above india from kitchen nightmares india from space india from love island india from nxivm india from the vow india from usa india from space at night india between china war distance in india between cities does pakistan border india challenges in front of india's security system challenges in front of india challenges in front of india's security how many hours are india in front of the uk challenges in front of india's security system diagram challenges in front of india's security system brainly in front of the india trees in front of house india india in spanish india in asia india in a day india in hindi india in ww2 india in olympics india in french india in t20 world cup india inside bangladesh india inside news india inside how many states india inside india inside china india inside map india inside us india inside travel india into the future india into usd india into semi finals india into pkr india into dollar india into nepali india into finals india into aed india like countries india like flag india like bts india like national flag india like italy and china india like flag country india like weather in canada india like app india ink made of india gate made of buildings in india made of sandstone what is india made of covid vaccine india made of public building in india made of sandstone india gate made up of which rock indian near me india near equator indian near me now indian near me food indian near me restaurant indian near us indian near me delivery indian near mt rushmore india next to china india next top model india next top model 2021 india next top model season 4 india next top model season 6 india next top model season 5 india next top model judges india next to next match india of my dreams india of map india of my dreams essay india of the reds india of my dreams essay upsc india of r&b crossword clue india of india crossword clue india of nxivm india off the beaten path india off road cars india of south asia can be characterized by india on wheels india on afghanistan india on arrival visa india on cryptocurrency india on globe india on map of asia why is india opposed to mediation on kashmir why is india opposed to mediation on kashmir upsc why kashmiris are against india opposite of india opposite of india in globe opposite of india in earth opposite of india flag opposite same india opposite word india out of t20 india out of world cup india out of t20 world cup india out of t20 world cup 2021 india out of coal india out of tournament india out of oxygen india out of world t20 india outside country india outside map india outside country name india outside world cup india outside t20 world cup
