RMA will add 30 channels to cable TV

| Filed under

The Rancho Murieta Association board of directors on Tuesday night unanimously approved adding up to 30 channels this year to the community’s cable TV service.  The cost will be covered by the $3 dues increase for new programming approved in the 2011 budget.

The vote was the most notable action taken at the 30-minute meeting, the shortest RMA session in memory.

The board used the results of a phone survey for recommendations to add channels.  The additional channels -- part of basic cable -- will add 76 cents to the 2012 programming costs for basic cable, which will be on top of the $1-$1.50 programming increase already anticipated in 2012.

One of the new channels is Comcast Bay Area Sports, which offers San Francisco Giants baseball coverage. Read more » about RMA will add 30 channels to cable TV
