Dear existing Sjoberg’s Cable Analog HBO or Cinemax customer,
Due to necessary technology upgrades to our cable TV system, effective June 1st, 2018 we will no longer be offering a HBO (Channel 16) or Cinemax (Channel 15) signal as an analog premium pay service.
In order for these channels to be viewed on our system, customers will need to call our office to have our service technicians install a free digital adapter to your television set. While there is no charge for the first digital adapter, adapters for additional television sets are available at $2.50 per month per television set.
This digital adapter, while allowing you to still receive HBO and Cinemax, will have additional advantages. It will allow you to access, at no extra charge, the digital channels HBO2, HBO Signature, and HBO Family, if you are an HBO subscriber and MORE MAX if you are a Cinemax subscriber. The digital adapters also have a “TV Guide” service built into them so you will know what is showing on all of your channels as well as showing all the free QAM tuner channels available in high definition if your TV is HDTV capable.
Once again, there is no charge for the first digital adapter with these features, and the price of HBO or Cinemax or Combo will not be changing due to this. However, after June 1st, 2018 customers will only be able to view these channels on television sets with a digital adapter, digital box, DVR, or HD box. If you view HBO or Cinemax in more than one room, you may want to consider adding additional adaptors to your service.
If you have any questions, or would like to schedule a service appointment for a free installation of the digital adaptor, please call our office a 218-681-3044 or 1-800-828-8808.
Thank you for your continued business,
*This only pertains to current HBO, Cinemax or Combo customers before 5/31/18
