WIV to offer TV and broadband packages
Published on May 14, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Following the recent acquisition of WIV Cable TV and its sister company TCT Ltd, by Digicel, WIV has announced major plans to bring its customers great value TV packages and even faster broadband internet services.

In support of these new plans, WIV is offering customers a number of fantastic offers, including a free trial to its Platinum TV package. Since April 18, existing WIV digital customers have been receiving an automatic upgrade to experience the platinum package which features over 150 of the best movie, sports and music channels – right through to May 31.

In addition, April 28 marked the launch of WIV’s new Basic Digital Package, which allows analogue customers to upgrade to a digital TV package at half price. For only $19.99 for three months, customers will receive over 70 additional channels compared with their existing package. Furthermore, customers are no longer required to pay an installation fee or deposit on their first set top box and signing up is easy – simply stop by the WIV office any time during the promotion period.

WIV’s CEO, E. Jay Saunders, said, “At WIV, we want to build on our existing partnerships and strong networks to provide even better value cable and internet packages to customers – all of which are underpinned by our commitment to great service.”

On the broadband side, WIV has started upgrading internet modems and is making the process as easy as possible by sending technicians to visit customer homes for free installation. This, coupled with its broadband network expansion and upgrade programme, will see customers enjoying even faster speeds and better service from the end of May.

Saunders, continued, “We are committed to delivering unmatched cable TV and broadband internet services to our customers. As such, over the next few weeks, we will be performing upgrades to our network. These upgrades may cause intermittent disruption in service and we would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. We politely ask that customers remain patient as we go through this process to bring them TCI’s best cable and internet service.”

WIV Subscriber Cheshire Hall:

Digicel international seems to have a plan counter to that of their local chief Jay Saunders. They have separated the WIV news service from the cable operations. WIV news production and management will NOT fall under Saunders. This will prevent WIV from returning to another PNP advertisement as it was in the Michael Misick years. Now Misick and his cabinet are on the way to court and Saunders has to mind his business. His adoption of the former PNP slogan "Bigger and Better" has already exposed his partisan politics and has no place in the communications business. When Jay learned of the decision to separate the news under a British expat he was not pleased.
