We’re moving, but not yet

The HTC Towne Centre location will be moving just down the road in the coming months.

The location at the end of Carolina Forest Boulevard was sold to South Atlantic Bank earlier this year. HTC will remain in the area, moving about a mile down the road to the Lowes Foods shopping center on International Drive.

The location will offer the same services as Town Centre, along with Apple products and security systems.

Look for more news when the move is finalized.

The sun can cause spotty reception

Sun outages take place every year during spring and fall when the sun passes behind a satellite. Please be advised that during late February and early March, the sun outage period, disturbances to satellite signal reception will occur when the sun passes behind a satellite.

During these mini-eclipses, energy from the sun is captured by your earth station causing degradation in the signal.  You may experience anything from slight signal degradation to complete signal loss.

The outages during this cycle will be gradual and slight on the first and last days of the cycle, reaching a peak during mid-cycle when the sun is located directly behind the satellite.

Most viewers can expect disruptions at different times of the day beginning March 10. These disruptions should average about six minutes.
