Selective TV, Inc. held its annual meeting on July 14 at Carlos Town Hall with a big group of contributors and viewers in attendance – the largest group in more than six years.
Jim Borgrud, president of the nonprofit UHF system, updated everyone on the current status of STV and talked about the changes that may occur within the next several months regarding STV’s programming.
STV is in jeopardy of losing one or more of the upper channels due to interference. This can and will happen without any notice, so STV is trying to make plans as to what they can move around onto different numbers and channels.
A poll asking what programming they would give up helped the board make a decision when this happens.
There were many with questions and concerns about the conversion boxes that are being advertised on all public service announcements on all channels. Borgrud, who owns Borgrud’s TV in Ashby, and Mel Morse, from Digital First Communications, answered all questions that were asked regarding these boxes.
STV is purchasing equipment for the towers so contributors to STV will continue with reception they are getting now on the analog TV, with the exception of WCCO-CBS.
There were two new board members elected. Noel Rich will replace Ann Malmgren for a two-year term and Jake Capistrant will replace Merv Mock for a one-year term. Jim Borgrud, Norm Priebe and Vern Dobberpuhl were also re-elected to three-year terms.
STV thanks all members who have sent their annual contribution in for 2008-2009. Selective TV leaders noted that the changes that STV is going to make in February is going to be costly, but cheaper than every home buying new televisions. They encouraged members to tell relatives, friends and neighbors to contribute according to their viewing habits – something is better than nothing.
