Poor Cablevision picture quality
Will it just get worse?
The topic of sub-standard Cablevision TV picture quality (and internet service) seems to come up a lot these days…
Hoboken411 reader Jason is wondering if one of those Radio Shack signal boosters would work:
“On a few different post I have heard people talk about boosters for there cable TV service. One stated cablevision offers one and one recommended something from Radio Shack. I frequently get pixilation and choppy service on my HD channels and believe so do a number of your readers. I spoke to cablevision and they do not offer a booster and said to reboot my box. Do you think you could run an article on this and see if anyone has suggestions on how to fix the issue.”
Have you tried one? Do they work? Or should they just make a service call and have Cablevision inspect interior and exterior wire quality?

There had been some recent comment activity on the “Cable Modem Problems?” post about how Cablevision’s TV signal was seemingly getting worse in Hoboken.
Hoboken411 reader bmacqueens sent in a fine example of such a complaint.
Cablevision image quality sucks!
“People chatting on Hoboken411 have talked about how they get a bad TV signal in Hoboken. Over Christmas I took a movie of my television screen showing just how bad it can be. This was on Christmas Eve, either on ABC Family or Disney Toon, I forget which one. In any event, this is using a brand new HD cable box from Cablevision and a new 42-inch 720p HD TV.
You can see how terribly pixellated was the signal. While it is definitely not this bad all the time, this helps explain folks’ negative opinion of Cablevision’s service in Hoboken.”
