How It Works:
In order to receive this service, you will need to have an UHF antenna. MVTV Wireless has technicians available for installations and repairs.

Installation & Service Call Charges:
Installations: The technician would need to test for signal. If he is able to get a good signal at your home, they will install that same trip out. The cost of the installation including membership typically ranges from $225 – $385+ depending on the equipment needed and length of time on site. The technician will collect the installation fee at the time of installation. There is no charge if the technician does not install due to lack of signal.
Here is a breakdown of potential charges:
- $50 membership fee – one-time, non-refundable, nontransferable fee
- $50 per hour for labor – a typical installation takes at least 2 hours
- The cost of the antenna, mount, cable, booster, or any other equipment needed + tax
Service Calls: In the event a Network Technician is needed for a service call, there will be a labor charge of $50.00 per hour (with a $25 1/2 hour minimum), plus the cost of any equipment or supplies needed + tax. Service call charges are due at the time of the technician’s visit.
Burying Cable: MVTV does not bury cable. It is the subscribers responsibility to bury any excess cable. Before digging, you need to contact Gopher State One by calling 800-252-1166 or 811.
MVTV is requesting a donation of $240 each year (works out to $20/month) per household to make it cost effective to transmit and maintain this service.
If you are interested in receiving and using this service, please mail donations to:
MVTV Wireless PO Box A Granite Falls, MN 56241
Or call 320.564.4807 during our office hours of 8 am – 5 pm Monday – Friday to donate with a debit/credit card or set up automatic payments.
MVTV Wireless would like to thank you for your continued support.
