Digital Switch Leaves Some Viewers Without WTAP

This week’s transition to digital TV has thrown cable customers in the New Matamoras, Ohio area a curve-ball.

For a number of years, their cable service was owned by Time Warner cable.

But on January 1st, ownership shifted to a company called Windjammer Cable.

Cable customers in New Matamoras woke up on Tuesday to find themselves without their local TV channels.

Callers to Windjammer are being told that the service should be restored in “a couple of days,” since the company was not ready for the digital transition.

Windjammer is the same company that recently bought the cable operations in Newport, Ohio and Friendly, West Virginia and decided to shut those systems down rather than continue to operate them.

WTAP is attempting to get more information about this cable problem in the New Matamoras area and will share that with you as soon as we get it.
