Stinson Beach Broadcast Channels.
Dear Stinson Beach Video Customers:
The reception you received of the NFC Championship game between the San Francisco Forty Niners
and the Green Bay Packers was far below Horizon's technical standards and we greatly apologize for the poor quality. The technical
problems stem from the work that many of the Bay Area broadcast stations are undergoing on Sutro Tower; where Horizon obtains its
signals from. The FCC has mandated broadcasters to re-work their frequencies to free up spectrum for new 5G networks. The work requires
these broadcasters to change antennas and signal strength. In doing so, they use lower power auxiliary antennas that have caused Horizon
to receive a weaker signal which caused poor reception for the NFC game. The good news is the work they are doing on Sutro Tower is
almost done and will be completed in March. The big hurtle is the upcoming Super Bowl game.
We have activated auxiliary broadcast
channel feeds that can be used by customers in the event that reception drops below an acceptable level on the regular channels. For
customers with Horizon's set top boxes, tune to channel 202 for the auxillary HD KTVU ( Fox) channel.
Customers that do not use digital
converter boxes can reprogram their TVs and tune to 2-10 for the auxiliary HD KTVU (Fox) channel.
Below is a list of all channels
on the auxiliary feed:
KVTU - 202
KRON - 204
KPIX - 205
KGO - 207
KNTV - 211
Cable Direct (no box)
KTVU - 2.10
KPIX - 5.10
KGO - 7.10
KNTV - 11.10
Thank you for your understanding in these matters and we look forward to this work being
