LETTER: Keep Selective TV going by paying small fee

To the editor:

This is in regard to the article you had read in the Dec. 27 newspaper in regard to Selective TV picking up the CBS signal.

As a loyal participant of the Selective TV, my wife and I are grateful to be able to continue to have the CBS signal on channel 4.1. We have been paying their annual or monthly fees since we moved permanently to the Alexandria area in 2004. And we will continue to do so as long as the Selective TV exists.

But we are very disappointed that only 10 percent of the Selective TV users pay their fees. Where can you get as much TV service for such a small fee?

We encourage all users to pay this small fee of $ 10 per month or $120 per year. Where else can you get a great service for such a small fee? If those of you who use Selective TV and do not pay the small fee, it could be very much possible that we could lose not only the CBS signal, but we could lose everything. Is that what we want to happen? We don't! So please mail your payments to: Selective TV 2308 S. Broadway, Alexandria, MN 56308 or make your contribution at
