Honey Lake TV plans for expansion

Thursday, Aug. 20, 2015 — Honey Lake TV is planning to expand its services into areas where there are no other signals available to residents. According to Jim Pecore, vice president of the Honey Lake TV board
of directors, expansions will first begin in Lake Forest because there is already an audience and enough people to make it feasible.
    Pecore said, “That’s our first little baby step that will give us some learning experience as we continue our goal to expand into Westwood, Clear Creek, Spalding and greater Eagle Lake area because that’s underserved. Those guys are so far away they have to have a satellite dish.”
