Postal Service pulls plug on lobby TVs

The Fayetteville Observer reports the plug has been pulled on TVs in Post Offices according to a spokeswoman for the U.S. Postal Service.

Several years ago, the agency had wall-mounted TVs installed at many post offices around the country in order to play videos about new Postal Service products and services.

They weren’t supposed to be used to show movies or TV shows.

According to the paper, "Now the TVs aren’t supposed to be used at all. The Postal Service now uses countertop and lobby displays, not broadcasts, to market its products and services. A few months ago, the agency started trying to get the word out to all of its offices to either remove the TVs or, if that was expensive, to simply leave them off."
