Shetenl FAQs

Do I have to be home for Shentel cable service to be installed?

If service is being connected where there has been active cable service before, then you do not need to be home. However, if you are having digital cable installed or this is the first time your house has been connected to cable, you will need to be home to let the installer in. Digital service installation also includes a quick lesson on the features of the service and how to use them.

You may need to run a channel scan on your TV. Using your remote, access the TV menu and verify that your TV is set to CABLE or CATV instead of ANTENNA or AIR. You can now run a CHANNEL SCAN or AUTO PROGRAM from your TV’s MENU to have your TV search for the channels you were not receiving.

Check that the problem is the cable service and not your TV set or equipment. If you have basic cable service, follow the applicable instructions here to troubleshoot your device. If you have Digital or HD cable service, follow the instructions here. If the problem continues, contact Tech Support via phone, email or chat.

In some systems, there will be continued service for a few hours. However, in certain serviceable areas, it is not guaranteed your phone and 911 services will be functional if there is a power failure. Customers should take precautionary steps to prepare for this need, if desired.

Shentel recently started talking about expanding their service to include fiber internet to the city of Lynchburg, VA. For more information refer to the fiber optic news.
