Notice for 3RTV Customers

Due to increased programming costs, 3 Rivers finds it necessary to raise the prices on several of our 3RTV video packages. Increases range from 50₵ to $2.00 per month, depending on the package, effective February 1, 2013. A letter was sent to all 3 Rivers 3RTV video customers earlier in December with details. Please call 3 Rivers if you have any questions, or if you would like information specific for the packages to which you subscribe.

Scam Email Going Around

3 Rivers has received several phone calls from customers regarding an email headed "Alert!!!" which appears to be from 3 Rivers and warns about a "DGTFX virus." This email is a phishing scam--do not click on the link included in the email!

One clue that this is a scam is in the "From" line--although it says "3 Rivers Communications", the "mail to" address is not 3 Rivers.

Please be careful when you receive emails like this. You should only click on links that are from a known source.
