New fiber optic line connects IdahoPTV and CableOne

July 27 2004 by Peter Morrill

On Tuesday, July 20, 2004 Idaho Public Television, in partnership with CableOne/West Valley and Cable One/Boise, inaugurated a direct fiber optic connection allowing IdahoPTV to deliver our KAID-TV/Boise and IdahoPTV high definition television service on a twenty-four hour per day/seven day a week basis. Customers of CableOne in these areas will immediately benefit from a dramatic boost in quality of KAID-TV/Boise and now have access to our high definition service around the clock. In addition, we will have a redundant delivery system to CableOne, which serves more than 42% of the area households. We are proud to be working so closely with CableOne!
