Be smart: save energy and money with a smart thermostat

Our area is undergoing the changing of the seasons lately … sometimes all four in a single day.

Take the guesswork out of finding the right temperature and save energy by adding a smart thermostat from HTC.

With a smart thermostat, you can program custom temperatures for certain times, or just control your home’s setting from wherever you are with your mobile device.

FoxNews contract talks under way with HTC, other companies

HTC is working with FoxNews and other Fox channels to renew programming for 2020 at rates and terms that are fair.

FOX is seeking a double-digit rate increase that we do not believe is fair to our hard-working members.

Along with other cable companies, we will continue to negotiate with the hope of no downtime for the channels when the contract expires on Jan. 1.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

We at HTC encourage you to slow down for a moment and cherish everything that truly makes your season bright.

There’s no place like home for the holidays, and we hope yours is filled with your closest friends and family for festive fellowship.

If you procrastinated on the presents, don’t fret. You can get all the latest tech gear, tablets and smartphones at any of the HTC retail locations.

As the holidays approach, the hours at those locations will be adjusted so our employees can enjoy their family time as well.  Those adjustments will be as follows:

  • On Tuesday, Dec. 24, retail offices and the residential contact center will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Those retail locations open on Saturday will be available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • On Wednesday, Dec. 25 and Jan. 1, all retail offices and the residential contact center will be closed all day.
  • Our technical support team is available 24/7 at 843-365-2186 should you have issues.

Don’t let porch pirates spoil your Christmas

Online shopping and super-fast delivery make buying Christmas gifts a snap, but sometimes unsavory folks can spoil it.

Be prepared with an HTC Connected Home security system and additional cameras. You can get a complete security system FREE when you install it yourself, or for $149 with professional installation and NO CONTRACT.

With the additional doorbell and indoor/outdoor cameras, you can monitor your home from your phone or TV.

Stay safe this holiday season and beyond with HTC Connected Home.
