Many local cable customers will need a digital box for analog TV's

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –  Up until now, Lubbock cable customers have been able to escape the requirement of a digital converter box on their analog TV sets.  As of July 29th that will change for many Suddenlink customers in Lubbock, Post, Shallowater and Wolfforth.

Suddenlink will provide a "DigitaLink" at no extra charge, and upon request Suddenlink will send a technician to install it. 

Suddenlink's Limited Basic customers who receive only channels 2 through 19 will not be required to upgrade.  Those who have a Suddenlink digital cable box, and those who have a digital cable-ready TV, or a digital cable-ready device connected to their TV are also unaffected by the upgrade.

Suddenlink says the conversion is possible because of a $350 million capital upgrade.  The company promises better video and sound quality.

Customers who need DigitaLinks can obtain them by visiting  or visiting the company's Lubbock office at 6710 Hartford Ave, or calling toll-free 877-872-9132.
