Holiday season in full swing on TV


As the temperature drops outside, it’s a perfect time to stay inside and watch your favorite holiday classics.

The Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas is already in full swing, with several original movies and past favorites. You can even download a checklist to make sure you catch all the action, which is on channels 78 and 79, or 878 and 879 in HD.

Freeform’s 25 Day’s of Christmas will debut later this month. Check out the schedule here and watch all the action on Channel 805 (HD) or 5 with a basic cable membership.

Kick back with a cup of hot cocoa and lose yourself in the holiday cheer.

The Gardens will soon be aglow

HTC is proud to be a sponsor of the magical Nights of a Thousand Candles. Each year during the holidays, Brookgreen Gardens comes alive with more than 2,700 candles, with some extra glow provided by over 2 million twinkling lights. It is truly a sight to behold and one of the most special holiday events in the area.

Nights of a Thousand Candles this year is Dec. 5 – 8; Dec. 12 – 15; and Dec. 19 – 21 from 3 to 10 p.m. each night. There’s nothing like walking the paths with a cup of warm cider in hand, listening to holiday music and getting swept up in the awe-inspiring scene with family and friends. Don’t miss the special lighting of the 80-foot-tall fir tree each night at 6:15 p.m.

Come witness some of the most beautiful nights of the year with thousands of luminaries, delicious food and live entertainment. 

Tickets must be purchased in advance by visiting the website.

Have no fear with HTC Security

October is Crime Prevention Month, and few things discourage criminals more than a home security system from HTC.

HTC offers a FREE self-install security system with a 3-year monitoring agreement, and plenty of accessories for you to automate your home. You can choose from doorbell cameras, indoor/outdoor cameras, thermostats, smoke detectors and much more.

Beginning in November, you can get the same self-install system for $149 with NO CONTRACT.

It’s time to rally around the Chants

If you haven’t been to the expanded Brooks Stadium, you’re missing out. But there’s still time!
