Is Orby TV shutting down?

Rainier Satellite lately been contacted from concerned folk who currently have Orby TV looking for answers and options. There’s much speculation out there on the internet. We’ll do our best to get the facts out as they’re known.

On February 17, 2021 reports started coming in about Orby TV going out of business noting their website disappeared except for a static message.

Customers who reached out to Orby via e-mail  have reported they’ve received no response.

Rainier Satellite contacted Orbys customer help line to find it has a recorded message that Orby is no longer activating customer accounts. Orbys Facebook page appears to have been removed. At Orbys YouTube page all content has been removed.

Rainier also found out customers scheduled for installation had their install cancelled. Other reports said that customers cannot log into their accounts any longer.

Sources have been unable to reach Michael Thornton, Orbys CEO, and a former Starz and DIRECTV executive. When they called a Beverly Hills, California phone number listed for Orby at various business web sites, the person answering said it was a private residence which had nothing to do with Orby.

Eric Becker, a former Starz executive who now runs a private public relations firm called Becker PR, has done public relations work for Orby in the past. But when asked if he knew the satellite TV services status, he said he did not work with Orby any longer and was unaware of its current status.

While there’s no official word yet from Orby TV these abrupt measures by Orby Tv does not look good for its customers.

Those are the facts as far as we know.

If Orby TV is in fact shutting down Rainier Satellite would like to reach out to Orby TVs orphans to get on board with us for their TV entertainment at a low cost. Rainier Satellite did the same reaching out to the 4DTV orphans when programming center shutdown in 2016.

No Programming Price increase for 2021, a letter from the President.

It’s great to be a Rainier Satellite subscriber in 2021.

A letter from Rainier Satellites President.

Good Day to all our valued subscribers,

Hope this letter finds you safe and healthy. We know these are trying times financially for many and Rainier satellite is going that extra mile to ease the burden. As many know it’s normal for all pay TV providers to have an annual increase in programming prices the first quarter of the year.  Rainier is breaking that rule for our consumer platform for 2021. Even though our yearly programming costs, addition of channels, and business operations have cost us more lately, as President of Rainier Satellite I’ve made the decision to eat those costs and freeze our programming prices to our valued customers for 2021. We know you value the entertainment we provide for you, and want you to be able to afford and enjoy this entertainment during these trying times.

I’d also like to let you know if you’re having problems making your renewal payment all at once Rainier Satellite offers Paypal Credit to help you defer that cost.  There is no Interest if paid in full in 6 months with Paypal Credit. See our website to apply for Paypal credit.

If you have any questions about your account or services you can always call us at 509-486-4137 during business  hours  Monday  –  Friday. 10 Am- 6 Pm PST to speak to a live agent.

Till next time, Best Regards,

Robert Scharmann
