TelAlaska's subsidiary Eyecom Cable offers digital cable television service with 11 pay-per-view movie and event channels, nearly 50 commercial-free music channels and several channels of HBO and Cinemax. Unalaska is the first Eyecom service area to receive digital television service.
Digital converter boxes to enable a television set to receive all the benefits of the new service are an additional $8.95 per television set. Digital Video Recorders are also available for $19.95 per month; that price includes the $8.95 digital service fee.
There is no set-up fee or installation cost for upgrading to digital service. The cost of installation for non-subscribers is $30. Eyecom's digital offering also features parental locks, allowing the customer to block pay-per-view purchases, hide movie titles and prevent access to programming according to its rating.
