Chamber Coffee!

coffee cup

Join Cunningham Telephone & Cable, TODAY, Friday, March 13th from 9am-10:30am for Chamber Coffee. We will be demonstrating our Synergy Whole Home DVR System and our new Synergy Streaming.

What is Synergy Streaming? It’s an IP encoder that plugs into the Synergy DVR you have from Cunningham Telephone & Cable. When this encoder is used with the free ARRIS app, it allows you to watch TV from your tablets or smartphones. The ARRIS app on your smartphone will allow you to record a show without even being home. You can also use the app when you are home as a remote. You can enjoy any of the currently on-air TV programs from your TV subscription, as well as previously recorded programs.

Come down to 110 W Main, Beloit to learn about all our new technology. We look forward to demonstrating our new services & answering any questions you may have.

Stop by for a cup of coffee and network with great friends!

The next scheduled coffee will be Friday, April 10th sponsored by CASA.


Hutchinson, Kan. – “Say Hello” to the Nex-Tech Wireless Grandstand. The Kansas State Fair is pleased to announce a long term partnership with Nex-Tech Wireless based in Hays, KS.
