Mountain Express: Plum TV Goes Dark


Plum TV, which provided programming to Sun Valley and other resort communities across the United States, has gone dark without notifying Sun Valley cable provider Cox Communications.

This morning's Idaho Mountain Express reports that Plum TV filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Sept. 11, suspending its local operations and laying off five Sun Valley employees. But Plum TV continued to provide nationally syndicated content on Channels 13 and 14 in Sun Valley.

That is until viewers were greeted by static on Oct. 18.

"We were not given advance notice of their plans," said Cox spokeswoman Gail Graveve, who added that Cox was under the impression that Plum TV would cease operations in 2013.
