Programming Updates

Cable Bahamas’ contracts with programmers to carry their services and stations on REVTV expire occasionally. While we are usually able to renegotiate these agreements with no interruption in service for our REVTV customers, in rare instances, programmers may insist that we cease carriage of their content. In addition, it may become necessary to make adjustments to our channel line-ups and television packages.

For more information on upcoming expirations or other programming changes see below:
