TV firm warns of outages during upgrades

| 18/01/2010

(CNS): As a result of upgrades to its main antenna Weststar TV said that there will be intermittent outages during the day on Wednesday 20 January while the work is being done and the antenna, is being switched out. Around half of the channels will be effected, the TV provider stated as, it said, the antenna is only one of the two used for broadcasting signal to the island. The work has to be done during daylight hours so evening viewing should not be impacted.

West star said that the replacement of the main antenna on the tower, located at Television Centre in George Town, would improve signal to the entire island. “We strive to provide our customers with the best service possible and this new antenna will help us fulfill that goal,” added Director of Operations, Traci Bradley.

 “The work needs to be done during the day so that the engineers have proper light, but we do want to minimize any inconvenience to customers at the same time,” Bradley said.  “We have scheduled the work to be completed between 8 and 5 so that we don’t interrupt Daybreak, News27 at 6 or any evening programming when most of our customers are watching TV.”

WestStar said it was sorry for any inconvenience the outages might cause, but assured its customers that the work would be worth it as the end result would be better service.
