Talk of the Town

The community of Unalaska is a busy place to live.  Our community calendar is full of events and activities.  Talk of the Town is your source for coverage of community events and sports.  KUCB staff writes many of the stories, but we also accept contributions from community members for this section of our website.  Talk of the Town stories are often used on Flash! Unalaska, our weekly television show.  If you'd like to submit a story to Talk of the Town, contact Chrissy.

Eyecom Cable and TelAlaska have announced a plan to replace the current analog cable system with a digital system in Unalaska/Dutch Harbor starting March 1, 2018.

KUCB's Vic Fisher spoke with TelAlaska Marketing Manager Celine Kaplan about what this change will entail for current TelAlaska customers  and you can listen to the full interview below.

Starting this week, Unalaskans will see 23 new channels in the rotation, but starting March 1st, all customers will need a converter box to receive any of the channels TelAlaska offers.
