CABLENET

Cablenet is the only Cable TV and Cable Internet carrier in Cyprus. Currently the coverage is limited only to several urban areas. The difference between Cable Internet and ADSL is that unlike ADSL (I-choice, Primetel) that connect you to the internet via the telephone line that is already installed in your home, you connect to Cablenet with a separate coaxial cable that is installed to your home once you purchase the service. Therefore, connecting to the Internet through Cablenet is independent of your telephone carrier. Cablenet also offers an ADSL product which is available at more locations.

Based in Limassol, have analogue TV. For several months Sky News has had problems with sound/vision sync being out, usually by several seconds. I have had one of their engineers out who confirmed that the problem is theirs (thereby avoiding their charge of 60 had it been at my end). I have repeatedly reported it, it occasionally gets a temporary fix and the following day the same problem again. What seems to be happening is that at around 2330 each evening, the channel begins to lose signal strength, which eventually drops down to virtually zer and freezes. This takes around 30 minutes. When the signal returns, the sync is out. Two additional points - this problem does not occur on their digital platform and I have confirmed it with other subscribers. It seems they are not capable of fixing it. Does anyone else (especially in other areas) has this specific problem?

I am in Nicosia and I have never observed any issues with sky news. (maybe because I am mostly zapping as I don't like TV)
I will try to check this around 23:15 - 00:00 in the next days and I will keep you posted.

I have checked sky news on Sunday and Monday and there is nothing wrong with it.

Many thanks for your efforts. In my original post I failed to say that this only occurs on their analogue service - the digital platform is not affected at all. So far I have only had the problem from Limassol based subscribers.
