Paul Bunyan Television Introduces PBTV Lite

PBTV Lite is a lower cost TV option for consumers that eliminates high cost cable networks


(Bemidji, MN) (January 23, 2012) – Paul Bunyan Communications has introduced PBTV Lite, a less expensive PBTV service option that eliminates the higher cost cable networks but still provides an interactive program guide, access to PBTV On Demand, and the Galaxie music channels.

“We are very proud to offer consumers a less expensive TV option. Television service providers have incurred dramatic rate increases on the most highly rated networks in the past few years. We are prevented by the networks from offering consumers the chance to pick and choose individual channels a la carte so the next best alternative is PBTV Lite. PBTV Lite includes the major broadcast networks (ABC, NBC, Fox, CBS, and PBS) over 40 additional networks, and 50 Galaxie music channels. It does, however, remove the higher cost networks which are also the most highly viewed. This would include all cable sports networks, news networks, along with some entertainment networks. ” said Brian Bissonette, Paul Bunyan Communications Marketing Supervisor.

“It’s hard to say what is more important to any given customer which is why we’ve created PBTV Lite. Some consumers will not want to go without access to the highly rated networks, but for those who don’t mind then they will be able to reduce their monthly investment in television service,” added Keith Hunt, Paul Bunyan Television Supervisor.

The cost of PBTV Lite starts at $20 less per month than that of main PBTV service. Customers are still able to combine PBTV Lite with local phone and Broadband Internet service to save even more. PBTV Lite customers can add PBTV Sports, any premium movie package, and PBTV DVR service but PBTV Lite subscribers are not able to add PBTV HD or PBTV Extra due to existing programming contract restrictions.
