These are: Trinity Broadcast Network (channel 21 and Logic TV); CIGTV, the government channel (channel 23 and Logic TV) and the Seventh Day Adventist Network (channel 30 and Logic TV).
Streaming services are growing more popular as an alternative to cable TV. There are a wide variety to choose from, however not all are available to stream on-Island. Netflix remains the most popular. Users have access to hundreds of shows, movies and documentaries, and more are added each month. There are three-membership plans to choose from, determined by how many devices can stream at the same time.
