EZVideo Service to be Discontinued at Noon on January 31, 2022
Changes the TV industry is facing make it extremely difficult for small, member-owned cooperatives like BCT to continue to offer video services at reasonable rates. We have seen all core product programming tier costs more than double in the last decade. Even though we pool our content negotiations with hundreds of independent providers throughout the United States, we are unable to offer the kinds of packages and programming options at affordable prices that members want.
Therefore, the BCT Board of Directors has decided to terminate EZVideo services at 12PM noon on January 31, 2022.
This is not the news you’d prefer to hear. We get that. Favorite TV shows are personal. They can provide you with something to share with others, perhaps teach you something new, or offer a temporary escape. Our goal is not to keep you from your favorite programs, but rather to help you find the best, most budget-friendly way to enjoy them moving forward.
Below are some frequently asked questions that we hope will help as you explore TV options. In addition, our local Member Services Team is available to answer questions and help guide you to the right TV solution at 503.632.3113 from 8AM to 5PM Monday through Friday.

What is a subscription streaming TV service?
A streaming TV service delivers video programming, live or OnDemand through an app or online website over the Internet. The majority of these streaming TV services operate as a monthly subscription-based model and most do not require a contract or commitment.
Will I still have access to local channels?
It depends on the new service selected. Some platforms do offer local channels, but we recommend that you visit www.bctelco.com/streaming to see available options.
Will my new streaming TV service appear on my BCT bill?
No. These services are all offered by third-party companies.
