If they live in Crete, they are served with Time Warner Cable. If he signs up for HBO, he can request an HD Convertor Box, Currently they offer 2 Channels of HBO and 2 Channels of Showtime in HD. They are also doing the NBA feeds that are being done by TNT to subscribers that have the HD Box. His TV will need HD Component inputs, and then he can just lease the convertor box from them, around $6.00 per month. As soon as Ch. 10 (CBS) (KOLN) and Ch. 8 (ABC) KLKN are broadcating in HD, they plan to add that, I've been told. We'll see. If he needs any additional information, our store is located 30 minutes from Crete.
Here is a Time Warner Link for Crete.http://www.twcnebraska.com/cable/crete_lineup.shtml
We have a lot of customers using Time Warner for Movies, and an OTA solution for networks, but in Crete, he'll have trouble receiving the Omaha Channels, but KOLN is really close, shooting for April 15th, and KLKN is broadcasting an upconverted analog signal now digitally.
