    Mediacom Channels in Ames

    Is it just me or did the channels get totally screwed around today? WGN is now Channel 3 instead of 21 and Discovery is channel 46 instead of 2. Am I missing any others?


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I tried to give you some rep, but apparently I need to spread it around a bit... so for now, here's a +1 all for you.

    Another hint would be to check your last bill from Mediacom. Mine included a new channel lineup with all the changes.

    I noticed last night that the regular channels were switched around but I didnt see any of the new HD channels in the guide.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
