To our FTCtv customers:

Please be reminded that FTCtv will no longer be available effective at midnight on April 30, 2020. It is our goal to keep you informed of your options and to assist in transitioning you to a television service that will meet your needs.

FTC is pleased to be partnering with Cabletime, a premier DISH retailer. In fact, Cabletime won the 2019 DISH Local Retailer of the Year, which is the highest award among all DISH retailers across the country. Cabletime has a special offer code, FTC100, for FTCtv customers. FTC’s broadband network enhances the video experience on DISH’s award-winning Hopper platform to provide the best video solution. Be sure to bring in this letter or mention code, FTC100, to take advantage of the special offer. DISH provides a 2-year price guarantee and a $100 gift card for FTCtv customers. Did you receive a better DISH offer in the mail? Don’t worry, Cabletime will honor any corporate offer you receive while still providing local customer service.

You may contact Cabletime at 256-638-3474 to learn more about their special offer and to get assistance in finding the best solution to meet your video needs. You may also visit their business office at 89 Trinity Lane, Rainsville, AL and learn more about their offerings at With Cabletime, you get local customer service and a local business office.

Many customers are already taking advantage of our high-speed broadband network and subscribing to numerous streaming services that are available at much cheaper rates than a traditional television service like FTCtv. There are many streaming options available to meet your needs. It’s important that you research and determine what service option works best for you. We have developed some helpful worksheets and created a webpage with helpful links about the most common streaming services. You may access this information at We have been hosting helpful and informative “All About Streaming” classes at our business office and we have a few more scheduled in the coming weeks. Join us on:

Jan. 23 at 9 am or 5 pm   |    Feb. 6 and 20 at 9 am

The classes have lasted approximately 1 hour 15 minutes. Immediately following the class, Jimmy Willingham with Cabletime, will demonstrate DISH and answer any questions you might have.

We are working hard to make sure this transition will be a great experience for our customers. Thank you for your loyalty and commitment to FTC!
