A delay by SelecTV in getting out its monthly bills has interrupted the programming for some subscribers of the over-the-air pay TV service. The bills give customers a code number to use to access SelecTV programming, and without it they receive only a scrambled signal. When the bills didn't arrive, subscribers started calling SelecTV's office and that in turn overloaded the telephone lines, causing further frustration to the many who were unable to get through.

SelecTV has lost its contract with the channel that broadcasts the pioneering subscription TV service to 20,000 homes in Los Angeles. KWHY-TV Channel 22 has decided to broadcast Spanish-language programming April 1 instead of the movies and sports offered by SelecTV. And while SelecTV executives are putting the best face on KWHY's move, some experts predict that it could spell the demise of the long-struggling service.

SelecTV of California, a struggling Los Angeles subscription-television service that earlier this month lost a crucial contract with Channel 22, has filed for protection from creditors under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Under Chapter 11, a company can continue to operate, but creditors cannot demand payment. SelecTV said in a brief statement Friday that the Chapter 11 proceeding was filed "as the company finalizes its plans for future operations."
