Just Say NO to Cable TV Converter Boxes!!

When it comes to TV for your RV Park,
Just Say No to Converter Boxes!

For the past 3 years, Cable companies have been informing RV Parks and Campgrounds that they are (finally) moving to an all-digital TV signal and eliminating analog Cable TV services. Some are even eliminating wired TV services altogether.

One of the biggest concerns RV park and Campground owners express to us about your TV systems at industry conferences is the requirement from cable TV companies for you to distribute converter boxes to each camper that wants to use your TV system

RV Parks and Campgrounds are being forced to:

  • Give converter boxes and remotes to each camper
  • Pay an upfront cost for the cable company to deliver fiber to your park
  • Pay additional costs for new equipment for the headend to accommodate the digital signal and converter boxes

Cable TV Converter Boxes are a Headache that Cost Parks Money

The cable companies requirement for converter boxes are the number one complaint that parks give when calling us about their TV systems. Park owners tell us that the costs to you go beyond just the upfront equipment costs.

  • Time –
    Hours spent by you and your staff checking converter boxes out and back in
  • More Time –
    Hours spent showing campers how to hook up the converter boxes and answering questions
  • Even More Time and Money –
    Recovering boxes when campers leave with them
  • Money –
    Replacing converter boxes and remotes that campers take with them
  • Insult to Injury –
    Time spent ordering, restocking, re-authorization of the new converter boxes
