Another Cable TV Company Announces It Will Shut Down Its TV Service Because of “Extreme Price Increases from Programmers”

Over the last year a growing number of small cable TV companies have announced that they will shut down their TV service. You can add DUO Broadband to that list. They announced that they will shut down both their traditional cable TV and streaming TV services soon.

According to DUO Broadband, they are being forced to make this change because of the “extreme price increases from programmers” that make running TV unprofitable. This means customers in Kentucky counties will soon lose access to their cable TV service.

This news comes as just last week we learned Comcast would be raising its price. Also, it comes just days after we learned another small cable TV company shutdown with no warning, leaving customers without internet or TV service.

Customers will need to switch to a streaming service like Hulu, Fubo, Sling TV, or YouTube TV. Or use a satellite TV service.

On their website, Duo Broadband posted this statement:

TV delivery is changing, and DUO Broadband has to change as well.

All DUO TV Services to Be Discontinued

Streaming TV will end 1/4/2024

Because of extreme price increases from programmers, we will phase out our streaming TV service rather than pass along large price increases to our customers. The good news is that you have excellent alternatives for your continued TV service. The MyBundle Streaming marketplace is a great resource to find your best options.

Traditional cable TV will end 12/31/2024 

Due to the extreme costs associated with cable TV systems, maintenance, and facilities DUO Broadband will no longer offer traditional cable television. Extreme increases in programming rates would have required significant, continued price increases that would be a burden for our customers. Larger national providers are able to negotiate better rates and can keep your rates lower than we could.
