Lax Kw'alaams Cable viewers to see changes to system as upgrades get underway

Some favourite shows for Lax Kw'alaams viewers may go missing for a few weeks, but their temporary absence will herald an improved service as the Lax Kw'alaams Cable service upgrades its delivery system.

In an update for customers, the Lax Kw'alaams Band Council outlined the nature of the changeover, with a number of Standard Definition channels taken off the air as content providers shift towards a High Definition options.

The first part of the upgrade project got underway in mid-July with repairs to lines and replacement of obsolete equipment, replacing them with new models that are compatible with the changes.

The next step that is underway is the installation of new equipment at the Cable Company Head end and the installation of a new Satellite dish to pick up new satellites.

The investment by the Band Council is designed to bring Lax Kw'alaams Cable to the latest technology and allow them to remain a less costly alternative to other television providers in the region.

More background on the system plans can be explored here.
