All assets held by Rocky Mountain Cable were sold to satisfy secured debt from the holders of the company, leaving Cedaredge area residents without TV service, and without warning. Mountain Valley News writes that the company that purchased the assets did not choose to purchase the assets in the Cedaredge area. The town will more than likely not see a reimbursement of the $7,000 they paid for their franchise of Rocky Mountain Cable’s service. All the town can tell their residents right now is to write to a Denver address to try to get questions answered.
