MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Time Warner Cable is preparing to go digital in Mount Vernon, converting both residential and business customers from analog to digital cable.
The digital conversion project will affect Mount Vernon, Staten Island and Bergen County customers who have a cable line directly plugged into their televisions.
In June, the company is transitioning all analog channels in the basic television package to an all-digital signal. By doing so, Time Warner will free up bandwidth on the network, which will provide improved picture and sound quality, as well as faster service and Internet speeds, the company says.
To help customers prepare for the conversion, free digital adapters are being offered by Time Warner. A digital adapter is a small device that will allow digital signals to be displayed on the television and comes with an easy-to-use remote control, said Time Warner officials.
Customers can get the digital adapter and self-install kit online or by calling 1-855-286-1736.
