TKS network upgrades in Aukamm Housing
TKS will perform a series of network upgrades in Aukamm Housing on May 16 which will interrupt AFN broadcasts from about 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. TKS cable channels will not be affected. Aukamm residents will have to retune their television sets when the network upgrades have been completed. This normally entails initiating an automated "channel search" which will recapture and save the AFN channels at their new broadcast frequencies. There will be no change to the actual AFN program lineup. The upgrade will lay the technical groundwork for the introduction of new and enhanced network services at Aukamm later this year, including broadband cable Internet and digital TV services. If Aukamm residents experience any type of persistent reception problems after retuning their sets on Thursday evening, they should report the situation to the 24-hour TKS Customer Service Hotline at civ (01804) 857 762.
