About Electric Cable TV and Communications Service
In 1948, John Walson ran a cable to connect his home appliance store in Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania to an antenna tower atop a nearby mountain, ultimately connecting homes in the community. As a result, the cable television industry was launched in America. This model was copied all over the country in areas where TV reception was difficult or impossible. Service Electric is also the birthplace of Home Box Office (HBO), launching the nation’s first premium subscription service in the Wilkes-Barre market in 1972. Mr. Walson was guided by one fundamental principle; people wanted quality television access and his duty was to provide it. Still family-owned, Service Electric continues to build its positive reputation in the community and the cable industry, offering a variety of television, Internet, telephone and telecommunications services. www.sectv.com
