Attention Cable TV Subscribers
The Barbourville Utility Commission strives to deliver quality Cable TV service at the lowest price possible. In recent years, the cost of programming has increased by an average of 8 to 10%, annually. That trend continues to be the case for programming costs in 2016. In fact, the cost of programming for Barbourville Utilities has increased by nearly 9.5% over last year alone. This means, that we must increase our cable rates in order to offset the increased programming costs we have incurred.
Effective June 1, 2016 the following increases will apply to all Barbourville Cable customers:
Basic cable - from $51 to $56 monthly
Preferred cable - from $64 to $69 monthly
HD Plus - from $70 to $75 monthly
Despite these changes, our emphasis remains on the customer. Barbourville Utilities will continue to offer quality programming including local, digital, and high-definition channels. As always, we greatly appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future.
Our mission is to provide Barbourville and Knox County with the most economical and highest quality service available, whether it is the highest quality water, the most reliable electric or the most advanced telecommunications.
