Default Cable Television at KVSP

Is there anyone who can tell me why the cable (Satellite) television for the inmates has been out for about a month now? Are there problems? Did they disconnect forever or just problems? Thanks for your help.

My husband has complained every time we had talked. He said the prison said they are going to fix it.....but haven't yet. He said the prison is falling apart. Like sometimes they have hot water to shower but most of the time water is cold.

Huh. I wonder if it's yard specific. Although the hot water thing my husband did mention. He said that a lot of guys were refusing showers because the water was so cold.

Hopefully they get it fixed. :/

Ooh, ok. I never thought to ask him what he was watching (I'm not a tv person so I never know what he's talking about! lol). Also a different yard, but if it's out it's probably the whole facility.

Shoot. I bet they're itching to get it fixed. :/

So I finally asked my husband about how the cable was before he transferred (and why he didn't tell me he had no cable, lol). He said that not every block, just some. His block D4, oddly enough, was still working and that's why he never said anything.

Hopefully they get it up and running soon!

My husband told me they finally got the hot water fixed somewhat, not ice cold but not hot either. Cable is back in ASU 1 but not his section. The mail delays have been horrible though. He thought I abandoned him, really screwed with his head. He got most my December mail in January.
