Municipal Utilities to broadcast digital, high definition television

Thursday, November 29, 2007

Alta Municipal Utilities is excited to announce the availability of digital television, which includes high definition, pay per view and video on demand. The service will be available on Dec. 3. Customers are encouraged to sign up early so installation can be scheduled.

Alta Municipal Utilities has been offering cable television service since 2001. Alta Utilities has spent the last 18 months researching digital and high-definition signals to find a solution that will keep them at the forefront of technology and provide the most cost effective system for their customers. The platform, selected by the utility, provides the latest in technology. The digital tier will include ten pay per view channels, several on demand channels and forty-five music channels. There is also a high-definition package available.

Customers will have a choice of two different receivers when they sign up for digital service. They can choose between a standard digital receiver and a digital receiver with DVR. The DVR receiver provides the customer with the capability to pause live television, record your favorite shows and the ability to view a picture in a picture. Both receivers provide the customer with an interactive television guide.

Customers interested in being one of the first to receive the digital service can sign up at this time. Alta Utilities encourages the public to stop at the utility office located at 223 Main St. to view a comparison between the digital signal and the analog signal. Additional information, including digital rates, may be obtained at the utility office. Alta Utilities is also offering a time limited promotional package, which includes a three-month subscription to the movie package of their choice and three free months of the high-definition tier.

Alta Municipal Utilities welcomes the opportunity to showcase the benefit of digital television for your viewing pleasure. Feel free to stop at the utility office and receive information on the latest television technology available.
