Cable Onda’s Makeover

OK, I gave the new Cable Onda changes a week to see if my first impression was too harsh. Guess what? I still HATE it! I really HATE it. Nothing more to say. I HATE it.

The American Network Channel (80), is one of the most annoying channels I have ever watched in my life. It continually plays previews over and over again. The addition of the Cuba channel doesn’t impress me either.

Many of the sports broadcasts are going to be in Spanish if they are even available. Golf is obviously not a sport that carries much interest in Panama, I guess, because I couldn’t find it today.

I switched from Astrovision, to Cable Onda, because I thought it would be a step up, and now it is one of the options I am considering going back to. I may just drop Cable Onda for everything except my telephone and Internet.

I am going to explore all options when I return from my trip. I may just replace the entire package as a form of protest.

As can be seen from the comments on my previous Cable Onda post, other Latin American countries are still receiving the US networks.

I understand that there may be a possibility of getting a Puerto Rico satellite system, that receives the US networks, in this area.

At the present time, I can get more enjoyment from the Internet, a few good books and some Blockbuster DVD rentals, than I can with this makeover.

I realize that my opinion of Cable Onda’s change has little influence, but I may cast my ballot about their change by canceling my account, maybe Internet and telephone too.

I HATE THE NEW CABLE ONDA MAKEOVER!!!!!!

  1. My goodness, Don Ray. Your trip is more than six weeks away. Are you going to suspend all activities until you leave? What on earth will you be doing in the meantime? (Just ribbing you.)

  2. I hope to have my decision related to my TV programming change made prior to my trip, but I will not implement it until after the trip. There are also a couple Internet solutions I may need to research being the Slingbos and another.for those I need a host location in the US.

  3. Don,

    Don’t feel alone. I have had antagonistic feelings even prior to this latest fiasco. Couldn’t get decent, consistent TV or phone or Internet signal and had to give up altogether on VOIP. Telling them the TV pixelates and having my calls drop while complaining to customer service about my digital voice resulted in nada. I’ve cancelled both TV and Phone service. Plan to cancel Internet as soon as I’m convinced Cable & Wireless can do better. Hard to believe, but so far, so good. Come Thursday, I’m no longer an Internet customer, either. I’ll be very interested in your alternate TV service choices. Haven’t found a TV replacement yet. Figure it will build character to do without for awhile…

  4. I have the Puerto Rico Direct TV satellite service here in El Valle. The contact is Mike Delgado and his e-mail is : ANTENAS PARABOLICAS his contact info is: office in Nuevo Paitilla # 41 Ph: 269-1818 / 269-2323. Nothing is cheap, basic service is $47 a month, and had to buy the dish (about $200). There is a 1 yr. contract. I do get all the USA channels live, and have the basic service package with no extras, but all the usual packages are available (movies, sports, etc.) as extra add ons. I do still get a lot of Direct TV ads during regular programing on most the the channels so nothing is perfect.

    Since the Stanley Cup finals start today, do you know if the poor folk on Cable Onda will be able to pick up any of the games. I even got the finals in Australia albeit early in the day.
