Consolidated Communications to stop offering cable TV by end of year

Excerpt from The Desk:

Consolidated Communications will exit the cable television market by the end of the year as it focuses on building out and maintaining its land-based broadband service business.

This week, customers in some areas began receiving notifications of Consolidated’s intention to stop offering traditional cable TV service, which will affect fewer than 30,000 subscribers, or less than 10 percent of its overall customer accounts.

“Consolidated’s strategy is based on a fiber-first product offering, which provides consumers and businesses a future-proof technology with unlimited bandwidth potential. As we make this transition, it will mean sunsetting some legacy products, such as linear TV services,” a spokesperson for Consolidated Communications said in a statement.

Consolidated has started notifying customers and municipalities in the areas where it provides cable TV service with information about its forthcoming plans and guidance on how customers can sign up for other pay television platforms, including streaming alternatives. Consolidated says it will continue to provide Internet and phone service in areas where it is withdrawing its cable TV product. The company provides telecom services in 23 states.
