We reserve the right to charge customers for service calls unrelated to Cable Systems equipment and services. We will charge you $50.

Lets discuss Internet speeds and usage. Cable Systems supports speeds up to an advertised amount. This is not the up to speed that is available when all your devices are connected. If you have a question with internet speed please wait 30 minutes and retest before calling. The Internet is a shared network and therefore the only way to guarantee you speeds would be to eliminate everyone else on the internet. In that case you would not be using the internet as the reason it is so useful is all th eother folks and companies on the network. We maintain at our core in St George is 5 times the available speed over peak usage on any day. For example peak usage is less than 2 gigabytes a second and our connection to the internet is 10 gigabits. We do not charge for usage or meter your use of the system. We have the fastest network in southern utah and provide higher speeds and more ip addresses percustomer than anyone else. We work hard to make sure that every customer is supported so they can enjoy our products to their fullest. Thank you.

Television channels in standard defintion (Non-HD) do NOT fill an HDTV screen. This is why there is black line on the sides of the picture. It is not HDTV! Some TVs do allow you to change the pictures aspect ratio to zoom to the corners of the screen. This is your responsibility to decide whether you wish to have it zoomed or not. The Cable Systems remote control does not control all features as a TVs remote does. So hang onto your TV remote becuase you will need someday.
Some lower channels on the Cable Systems TV system are in HDTV by default even if you did not purchase HDTV services. This does not entitle you to HDTV services so to tune to the 400s you need to pay the HDTV charge or select a bundle that includes HDTV.
The settings on your television is your responsibility. Knowledge of the televisions operation is also your responsibility. Read the documentation that comes with your new TV it could answer a few questions.
Cable Systems will unify our remote control with your television so you may control the TV and Set Top Box with one remote control. We are not responsible for any special settings on your TV.
Cable Systems charges a Local Broadcast Retransmission Fee which is charged by local broadcast networks to cable and satellite customers for access to their signal. The US Congress has authorized broadcast stations, such as ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX, to provide consent (grant or deny permission) for cable operators to retransmit the signal to customers. This agreement is typically renegotiated every three years. In accordance with this law, Cable Systems is required to obtain retransmission consent from various local broadcasters. The Federal Communications Act prohibits cable operators and other video programming distributors from retransmitting broadcast signals without first obtaining each broadcaster’s consent. Obtaining the required consent from all of the broadcasters comes at a cost which is reflected as the Broadcast Fee on the customer's statement.
Policy on local HD channels is as follows. We maintain 2 sources for local HD channels Siant George and SlC and endeavor to switch between these sources when one or the other broadcast locations has diffculties in reception. We have no control over the maintenance of these facilities and transmitters. We do a best efforts to bring this programming to you as error free as possible. We consider these issues to be out of our control and we do not provide service refunds for HD services from the stations whose signal is not working. We do provide alternate feeds on lower channels from satellite at standard definition and these signals are more reliable.
Normal maintenance window for our network is after 12 midnight. During this period brief outages can be experienced for 10 or 15 minutes if any maintenance is required emergency or normal.
