Bid to restore TV service continues

The Bermuda Broadcasting Company continues to work on restoring television service for customers who do not use cable TV.

The broadcaster sustained severe damage to its equipment during a storm on March 29, which struck just weeks after the company completed the switch from analogue to digital.

A spokesman for the company said it was believed that a power surge had travelled up a transmission line and blown the equipment for transmitting channels 7 and 9.

Viewers without cable were still able to receive the two channels free, and the service will be restored in due course.
