This department was born in 1997 out of the efforts of six cooperatives to obtain cable service.
Cable networks had to be built from the ground up in most of these communities. Initially the service was in analogue mode, but now subscribers enjoy digital service, allowing them to choose the channel line-up for their package based on their TV-watching preferences and habits.
The cable network has grown over time and cooperatives in all 14 communities now offer this cable service to their members.
Certain shows are now available in high definition, for an unparalleled television experience.
This initiative would not have been possible without the support of local technicians who ensure the network is operating properly and who maintain a direct connection with members. Technicians receive periodic training to keep their skills up to date.
