The Skeena T.V. Association held a meeting last Friday where items such as current financials, the new channels and equipment for residents was discussed.

For anyone who is wondering why they lost CTV, it is now on a digital channel along with the three new stations, History, TSN and Turner Classic Movie’s.

If residents are not able to receive the new channels it could be one of two things the association president Rick Vipond said.

“If people don’t have a newer television with digital capabilities they most likely won’t be able to pick up the new channels and need to purchase a converter,” he explained. “For those residents that do have a television purchased in the last few years there is a way to do a channel search but if people are having a hard time they can call me or any of the members and we can help them out.”

For those who are not aware, residents in the Hazeltons and surrounding area can now pick up a total of nine channels for free with the use of an antenna.

The current channels being broadcast are: BC CTV, Global BC, CBC, Chek, Discovery, Knowledge, History, TSN and TCM.

To purchase antennas or converters people can stop by Beertema’s in Old Hazelton or call and speak to them about the cost to get set up to receive the free channels.

If anyone has any questions please contact the Skeena T.V. Association via email at skeena.tv.assoc@gmail.com or talk to one of the members.
