Halifax, NS –Eastlink customers in the Digby area now have access to a wealth of Maritime-produced TV favourites including regional sports on the Maritimes #1 local sports channel, Eastlink TV.
“We’re constantly working to continue to deliver the best video experience to our customers,” says Michael Smith, vice president of Eastlink TV. “Our customers in Digby have been asking us for access to Eastlink TV for some time now so we’re especially proud to finally bring them the quality, regionally-produced programming that we’ve become known for.”
Smith says that the addition of Eastlink TV couldn’t have come at a better time. “This is such an exciting time to launch Eastlink TV in Digby with Atlantic University Sport Saturdays already underway, last year’s QMJHL conference finalists, the Halifax Mooseheads, scheduled to take on Gatineau Friday, Sept. 28 for their season home opener, and the Halifax Rainmen set to hit the hardwood in November for another exciting season of NBL basketball action.”
Food lovers will also be treated to a new segment on Eastlink magazine, Nova Scotia’s Best, which showcases some of the best dishes from around the province.
“Our province is known for having diverse food flavours and is quickly becoming known as a popular food destination,” says Smith. “In the Spring, we encouraged Nova Scotians to bring us their favourites and the stories behind what qualified them as Nova Scotia’s Best. The response has been overwhelming and we can’t wait to share this new Maritime feature with our customers.”
Eastlink Magazine, along with Eastlink TV’s line-up of other popular local programs including Welcome to My Kitchen, Fishing with Friends and Fuelin’ Around premieres October 14th at 7pm.
So what can Digby expect going forward?
Smith confirms that Eastlink TV is also preparing to launch its dedicated High Definition channel – channel 610 - in October giving viewers the benefit of watching regional sports and other local programming in brilliant HD picture quality.
As for other innovations, Eastlink Regional Manager Jeff Brown urges Eastlink customers in the Digby area to stay tuned. “We’ve got more great news lined up for Digby. While we’re not yet ready to share the details, I can say that there are more significant video service enhancements headed this way in the very near future.”
