Viacom Changes – September 2019

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why are you cancelling these channels?

Over the past few years, CTC has experienced continually increasing costs for television (TV) programming. Due to proposed rate increases in 2020, we offered a survey to our viewership regarding the possibility of removing Viacom channels. As a result of that feedback, on September 30th, 2019, CTC is removing the Viacom channels from our Entertainment Package and Big Value Package.

Will I see a decrease on my bill?

There will not be a decrease, however this savings will offset other channels that will would have had an increase this year.” So you will not see a TV increase for 2020.

Where can I find the programs I currently like watching?

A great deal of Viacom programming is currently available through the free Pluto TV applicaiton or through paid subscription streaming services such as Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix, or others.

 

Some of the programs you watch may be found on other CTC stations. For example, TV Land favorites Bonanza and Gunsmoke are available on INSP 86.

 

You can also use your CTC remote to search for your favorite programs by pushing the yellow triangle A button and typing in the name of the show. To find where programs are currently available through streaming or an alternative network, please see the table below:
