Temporary Halt on TV Installations

Due to supply chain issues, regarding our set top boxes, NEXT is temporarily halting TV subscriptions and installations. INTERNET AND TELEPHONE INSTALLATIONS WILL CONTINUE, AS NORMAL. The chip (integrated circuit) maker for our set-top boxes also serves the entire telecom industry, automakers and many other manufacturing and service industries. We are truly fighting a global market for these assets. Our supplier cannot guarantee us a sufficient supply of set-top boxes to accommodate growth within our television subscriptions. NEXT will not promise installation schedules that we know are unattainable. NOTE: For subscribers who register for TV on www.mynextfiber.com during this period, there will be no additional trip charges, once installations resume, to return to subscribers’ homes and install our traditional TV packages.

For NEXT internet subscribers who may want other options than traditional TV packages, “streaming” is a viable option. Millions of TV subscribers utilize television streaming services through their internet connection and enjoy an HDTV picture and high-quality sound. With NEXT fiber-optic internet, you won’t have to worry about buffering your TV signal. One major advantage to streaming is you can stream to your TV, computer, tablet or even your smart phone. Also, with streaming, you can access your account and watch TV wherever you may be.

Sign up for future TV service when it's available again.
