1. Is there an installation charge for Wadsworth Municipal Cable System?
The initial service drop and one television set connection are included at no charge. Additional charges may apply for drops over 200 ft. from the street. If we have to run through an attic, there is an additional charge of $100.00.

2. How much are additional outlets?
Additional outlets are either $25.00 (no wall fish) or $45.00 (if we have to wall fish).

3. What if I don’t have a cable ready set?
We can provide you with a basic set top converter with remote control for a monthly rental fee. This device offers ON/OFF (of your television), channel up/down, and volume up/down. (option – If you have a newer VCR you could use it as a tuner also.)

4. Must I subscribe to enhanced basic in order to receive premium channels?
No. However, rental of a digital set top box is required for each TV where the premium channels will be viewed.

5. How many TV’s can I hook up to the system?
Typically between 3 & 4 sets can be connected without degrading picture quality. In some cases depending on length and quality of in-house wiring, a distribution amplifier may be required.

6. If I need a distribution amplifier, how do I determine that and how much will it cost?
A distribution amplifier may be needed in installation with 4 or more TV’s connected and long cable lengths. In most cases, this will be assessed at the time your installation is performed. Installers will check at each television set to verify proper signal strength. In the event a distribution amplifier is needed, one will be provided for a one-time charge.

7. We spend two or three months in Florida each winter. Can we have our cable turned off?
People may have their service stopped for periods of two – six months by notifying the communications office.

8. Will a new cable need to be installed to my home if I currently have cable?
If you are currently a cable subscriber or not, a new service drop may need to be installed.
