Multi Internet Device Family

Relive or discover wholesome, favorite moments from classic shows or tune in to the local news and community events, any time of day with Lynxx 24 Television.

Lynxx 24 was created so that your viewing options can stay focused on local high school sports, happenings of the area or watch charming half hour to one-hour shows that you love.

Lynxx 24 Television lets you know all the wonderful things happening in Juneau and Monroe counties, so that you never have to say ‘I wonder what we can do for fun this weekend’ ever again! Almost everyone has had the experience of just seeing what something is about, such as a festival or fundraiser, and enjoyed the experience so much that you made new friends or became really excited about the cause or made a great memory.

If you imagine right now the last time you attended a local event, you’re sure to have a smile about it. So, now you don’t have to miss anything, and might even discover something new about your neighbors with our handy listing of hometown events.

Lynxx 24 Television creates its own programming options that are popular choices with many of our customers. Learn something new about the way the world works with “The Lab Scientific Experience” that explains a scientific principle and then lets you practice experiments at home. Trust us, this show is fun for all ages and is something you’ll enjoy. Other original programming includes:

  • “Lynxx Foodie“ sponsored by Organic Valley Foods
  • “Spotlight on Health” sponsored by Tomah Memorial Hospital
  • “Someone You Should Know” human interest stories
  •  “Spotlight on an Area Business”

Lynxx 24 also covers New Lisbon Rockets High School football games and area events like “WaDuShuda Days” and “Camp Douglas Armed Forces Days.” Finally, look for seasonal programming, such as our “Christmas Special” that will let you celebrate with us as many times as you want.

Our lives are quite connected in our homes now, thanks to Wi-Fi, and the explosion of tablets, more advanced mobile phones, computers and televisions.

It’s simple and incredibly useful. The system can remotely assist in something like resetting a password, or determining why your connection has low strength and quality. And there’s so much more, like Internet speed checks that can measure if the connected devices in your home and the speed you are currently using match.

Initial connections of your Managed Home Wi-Fi Service by Lynxx’s technicians will mean you know that your technology is connected correctly. We follow through with maintenance of inside wiring (cabling, jacks, ethernet cables) and the Gigacenter’s router. That means you aren’t left trying to understand intricate technical systems that you rely on, but can feel confident that you have a partner who you can trust to keep things running smoothly. The best part is, every new device you add in the future can get the remote assistance you need to keep your connected life humming.
