(Sioux Falls, SD) Vast Broadband will reorganize all TV channels in the communities served in eastern South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa, on September 13th, 2016. This will enhance the TV viewing experience, allowing Vast to deliver over 50 new channels, nearly 40 of which will be in high-definition. The update also prepares the Vast network for more upgrades in the near future including faster Internet speeds and more robust TV offerings.
“These are just some of the many upgrades that we’ve been working on… with more to come,” said Weldon Feightner, Regional VP of Vast Broadband. “We are absolutely committed to bringing our customers the best communication and entertainment products available.”
Some channels in the Vast line-up will change numbers. Currently, the channel number for a network can vary from community to community. After the update, all networks will share the same channel number in all communities. Going forward, all channels will be grouped together by category (e.g., news, lifestyle, sports, movies, etc.) for easy, intuitive browsing. Please note you may need to complete a channel scan/auto program on your flat screen TV to receive some of the new digital channels added to your line-up. If the set top box is unresponsive remove power, count to 15, and plug back in.
“We think customers will adjust to the new numbers quickly. And they’ll certainly love the new HD channels we’re adding to the line-up. At Vast, we are committed to offering the best Internet, TV and phone experience for the communities we serve.”
