We will do our best to keep the disruption to a minimum.

Attention: Cable Co-op Television Members / Bally Sports / Galaxy 15 Update





If you are a Cable Co-op member who has our television-based service, PLEASE READ





Bally Sports Ohio, Bally Sports Great Lakes, Fox News Channel, Fox Business, and Fox Sports 1 are all on Galaxy 15 which is off orbit and can no longer be used. With less than a weeks’ notice to switch satellites we and other providers are having issues locking on to the new Galaxy 23 satellite. With a deadline of August 29th any providers may lose these services until a “fix” is in place.





We are currently working to receive Fox News and Fox Business from another provider, but there are no options for Fox Sports 1, Bally Sports Ohio, or Bally Sports Great Lakes.





As a result, on Friday 8/26/22 we will be trying everything to get these channels moved. This will involve switching numerous networks from dish to dish. During this time the above-mentioned channels along with other channels including HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz & Encore, channels from our Digital Plus package, and various other channels (too numerous to list) will be going off air for periods of time throughout the day.





Cable Co-op and numerous other providers have no other choice but to try and switch to the new, untested, and unused Galaxy 23 satellite.





We will do our best to keep disruptions to a minimum and to get Fox Sports 1, and the two Bally Sports networks switched over.





Remember you can sign up for and use WTVE (Watch TV Everywhere) and stream Bally Sports Great Lakes, Bally Sports Ohio, and Fox Sports 1. Visit here for more details and instructions, https://www.oberlin.net/wtve-help-guidance/

Another Bally Sports Update:





This is a reminder, if you are paying for a TV package from Cable co-op you can stream many of the "channels" via WTVE. Bally Sports Great Lakes in one of those. Here is a link to how to sign up for WTVE https://www.oberlin.net/wtve-sign-up-instructions/

We will keep you updated as much as possible.

Bally Sports Update, Wednesday 8/24/2022





Cable Co-op
will have Bally Sports Ohio off the air on today August 24, 2022, to test
possible solution for resolving Bally Sports issues.





This will
not affect Bally Sports Great Lakes (home of the Guardians),
just Bally
Sports Ohio. If this solution works, we will then switch Bally Sports Great
Lakes to the new feed.





We apologize
for any inconvenience. This is all due to the emergency migration off the Galaxy
15 satellite to the new Galaxy 23 satellite. (We made a post on this last week.)
Cable Co-op has multiple feeds off the receiving dish we use for Galaxy 15 thus
we cannot simply turn the dish to pick up Galaxy 23.





We will keep
you updated as much as possible and hope to have a permanent solution in place
this week.
