St. Maarten Cable TV has been providing TV service to the St. Maarten population since October 1987. At that time, the basic subscription consisted of 12 channels. The channel line-up was expanded to 28 channels in 1997. Currently we offer 80 channels that are available in various packages to suit customers’ needs — and more channels are coming soon!
In 1995, after Hurricane Luis practically destroyed the network, all the utility companies on the island, including St. Maarten Cable TV, began transferring our cables to the main route underground. This project is still a work in progress. Since 2008, our outside plant has also been undergoing a major upgrade, that will utilize fiber and node activation to allow us to offer high-speed internet service in these upgraded areas.
St. Maarten Cable TV offers local programming on our local channel, TV15, as well as regional and international programming on our overall channel line-up. We are also currently migrating our system to a digital network that will allow us to expand our channel lineup with exciting new channels and offer more channels for the French, Dutch and Spanish speaking populations on island.
We also offer high-speed internet over your cable, which provides for some of the fastest and most reliable service available anywhere.
Most of our dedicated employees are local, and have been with the company for over 10 years. Our people are what make us the number one source of entertainment on the island!
