Oberlin Cable Co-op News


ATTENTION:Cable Co-op is experiencing unexpected issues with the new email servers. We are working hard and as fast as possible to resolve all issues. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Email Server


As a result of numerous issues with the current mail servers Cable Co-op has decided to migrate to the new servers Tuesday 9/14/21. If you are using a POP account you will not see any changes. If you are using an IMAP account or our online email (from website) you will see all old mail (from old server) located in a folder marked "old mail". Any emails going to your account after new servers are operating will go to your inbox. PLEASE REMEMBER, your current inbox emails, will be transferred to a folder named "old email". THIS ONLY PERTAINS TO @OBERLIN.NET EMAIL. As always, Cable Co-op will do our best to minimize any interruptions.

& Community Support Initiative

by: Cable Co-op with Support from Oberlin Business Partnership

  • Only businesses that are members of both the
    Cable Co-op and Oberlin Business Partnership are eligible for this event.
  • Write a 200–300-word essay about why you chose
    to do business in Oberlin, what you love about the community, and things you
    like to do in Oberlin.
  • The essays must be submitted electronically to by
    November 1st, 2021.
  • A winner shall be picked by an independent
    board selected from educators, community activists, and community members.
  • The winner will be notified by February 1st,
  • The winner shall receive a 30 second commercial
    created, filmed, and edited by Room With A View Productions, an Oberlin based
    business. Once completed the commercial will air on these Cable networks for 6
    months, USA, TNT, ESPN, ESPN2, SyFy, TBS, CNN, Fox News, and HLN.

for FREE 30 second commercial:

keep in mind that 30 seconds is not a lot of time. When a date and time is
established to shoot the commercial, please do everything you can to keep the
date and time. The following rules must be followed:

  1. Room
    With A View Production will get to edit the script to fit within the 30 second
    time frame.
  2.  The commercials are shot on the day specified
    and if there is no 24-hour notification of a change in time or date the
    commercial is charged as done. (Please do not let this happen, not only will
    you lose the chance at this commercial, but other local businesses already lost
    this chance to you)
  3. The business owner will
    have input during the whole process, however, massive changes after the
    commercial is shot are done on a time and materials charged basis.

Suggestions: Have most of the commercial filmed
before or after normal operating hours. Get footage of customer and staff
interactions. Get footage of goods or services offered. Focus on first 3
seconds. Focus on building brand awareness. Use a memorable tagline or jingle.
Keep everything simple.

any further questions to Jay Shrewsbury at the Cable Co-op,

: Minimum of 20 business entries must be
received for Initiative to begin. If initiative is started again, past winners
are not eligible to win again.
