    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.
