Shawnee to end cable service October 31
Due to the excessive costs regulated by cable channel providers, Shawnee Communications will terminate our cable television service as of October 31, 2018 and at that time, your Shawnee cable service will cease to operate. But don’t worry, we have great information on replacement alternatives for your cable service!
We realize the impact that the loss of cable television will have on the community. We are prepared to help make this transition as smooth as possible and explain the various options that are at your disposal before you select a new cable TV provider. To assist your transition away from Shawnee’s cable service, we want to offer our cable subscribers a special promotion.
Cable + Fiber Internet subscribers who cancel their cable service and increase their Internet speed are eligible to receive a free Roku Express.
Cable only subscribers who cancel their cable service and sign up for Shawnee’s Fiber Internet prior to October 15, 2018 will be eligible to receive a discount on their Internet service and a free Roku Express*.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this change in service, or if you would like more details on how you can receive a free Roku*.
