BendBroadBand Viewers

Update 1:30 AM

All services were restored around 1:20 AM.

1/28/2016 12:15AM

Directly following the conclusion of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon we will be performing maintenance on our distribution to BendBroadBand.  There will be momentary disruptions in all our services over the course of the hour scheduled maintenance window.

We will be implementing a redundancy into our system to ensure that BendBroadBand customers will receive our signal throughout certain equipment failures as a secondary/backup feed will be delivered to BendBroadBand.

Thank you for your viewership as well as your understanding of this maintenance window.
