Skitter Cable TV Inc. is now available through Farmers & Merchants Mutual Telephone Company as our current cable system will soon be retired. We are excited to offer a new premium video service (skitter TV) that provides more channels, better quality and better selection than previously offered under our old cable system. You must have a set-top-box at each television to get these packages and a Farmtel installer will need to install your new set-top-boxes to get you connected to the new system. Since this requires circuit changes both at the office and at your residence, an installation will be scheduled when you sign up for Skitter video services. SkitterTV video services are available at all locations that are on our fiber-to-the-home network.
You must have adobe reader or some other PDF program to view the following pages with channel line-ups.
The new system offers over 245 unique HD channels including premium channels available with DVR capabilities with additional channels previously not offered with our previous cable system.
*All channels are subject to change. Not all programming available is listed in the packages below as SkitterTV is continually adding additional content available to subscribers. We will continue to update channels as they become available.
Depending on your location will determine which DMA you will be assigned.
*Davenport DMA customers which include Wayland in-town residents, and Henry county.
*Cedar Rapids DMA customers which include towns of Brighton & Richland FTTH customers and Washington county.
*Des Moines DMA customers will include the towns of Hedrick & Fremont FTTH customers and Mahaska county.
