<p>Bloomberg TV has announced that it will discontinue service to all NCTC affiliates nationwide beginning December 13, 2013. This includes Duo County Telecom.&nbsp;</p>
<p>"We apologize in advance to our Digital Tier customers who have been watching Bloomberg TV," said Daryl Hammond, Duo County Telecom VP/CFO. "NCTC has made every effort to maintain service agreements with the programmer, but so far, they have been unwilling to change their position."</p>
<p>"We encourage our subscribers to tune into other business programming on FOX Business News (199) and MSNBC (192)," Hammond said. "If anything should change, we will inform our customers right away. However, for now, Bloomberg TV will not be broadcast on Duo County Telecom after December 13th."</p>

<p>Duo County Telecom has added 3 channels — including FOX Sports 1 — to its line-up for all Standard Tier customers. "With the growing popularity of this recently launched sports network we wanted to make it available to as many of our subscribers as possible," said Eric West, Duo County Telecom Director of Marketing.</p>

To ensure a continuing supply of telephone numbers, the new 364 area code will be added to the area served by 270. This is known as an area code overlay. 


An overlay is the addition of another area code (364) to the same geographic region as an existing area code (270). An overlay does not require customers to change their existing area code.

Caller ID spoofing is the practice of causing the telephone network to display a number on the recipient's Caller IDdisplay that is not that of the actual originating station. The term is commonly used to describe situations in which the motivation is considered malicious by the speaker or writer. Just as e-mail spoofing can make it appear that a message came from any e-mail address the sender chooses, Caller ID spoofing can make a call appear to have come from any phone number the caller wishes. Because of the high trust people tend to have in the Caller ID system, spoofing can call the system's value into question.
