Troy Cablevision was started in 1973 by visionary Harold Freeman. The original business provided cable service to residents of Troy and Pike County, Alabama. Following Troy's buyout to TCI of Alabama — and the expiration of a 3-year non-compete agreement, Harold restarted the Troy Cable franchise to expand his offering of cable services to underserved areas in Alabama. Troy Cable put its first customer back on in June 1986.
In 1989, Channel 52 — better known then as "Boggievision" — came on the air, offering viewers an unprecedented live view of events in Troy and Pike Counties. The first event televised on "52" was the Alabama Reunion train ride in Troy. In January 1989, Troy Cable went to City Hall for live coverage of the City Council meeting. Channel 52 became a huge success over the years, and in 1992, a state of the art production studio called Studio 52 was built.
Harold made the jump to fiber optic cable in 1993, furthering his dream of standardizing cable services in southeast Alabama. He also established Troy Cable as one of the premiere Internet service providers in the area. After his passing in 1998, Harold's son William H. Freeman Jr. ("Dick"), was named General Manager of Troy Cable.
The passion, hard work and integrity that Harold put into his company and family has been a driving force behind Troy Cable success today. We're proud to be an entirely independent and locally owned business that invests in our community, with a proven team of professionals who call Troy home.
