    Both Iowa and Iowa St bowl game not televise any where on Mediacom

    that is Pathetic and should force Mediacom out of this state for good


    looks like KDSM is going off air start of the new year

    Mediacom does not have the NFL Network

    here's betting they work out a deal to carry Iowa but not ours.

    Won't the Iowa game be on network television?

    Yes, but in the bi-annual war of egos between Mediascam and Sinclair, Sinclair (who owns Fox in Des Moines as well as other places in Iowa), is threatening to pull their channels off of Mediascam. Since Fox is broadcasting the Orange Bowl, if something isn't worked out, Mediascam won't be able to show the Orange Bowl in the state of Iowa. Since they don't carry the NFL Network, they already won't be able to show the Insight Bowl.

    This is a great opportunity for you to "train" on how to merge a thread with one of numerous others discussing this very subject!

    Mediacom will end up being broke here in a bit. Dropping a network is a great way to lose a ton of customers quickly. The backlash here will be great if they do not resolve this very very soon. It's one channel but it is riduclous that they think they can push everyone around. Cable is dying anyway, don't they understand what they are doing. I expect that soon the apartment complexes in ames will be looking at other sources of TV and when that hits it will be news. I realize it is still a small percentage but it is larger perception wise.

    I dont blaime Medicacom. They are trying to keep their product cost low but Sinclair wants to charge them more for their product.

    Re: Both Iowa and Iowa St bowl game not televise any where on Mediacom

    There are plenty of dishes to go around folks. I made the jump to dishnetwork over four years ago and haven't had one issue with provider contracts disrupting programing. I was sick and tired of mediacom increasing rates over and over again without any additional services or programming. I have four tvs hooked to satellite hdtv, have two hddvrs each of which will hold over 130 hours of programming. Plus PPV and VOD all for LESS THAN I SPENT ON MY MEDIACOM service. Stop ******** about Medicacom and change your service. You have a choice!

    If they were really trying to keep their product cost low they wouldn't be charging me $60 for really crappy internet...

    Not if your lease specifically says "no satellite dishes". Or if you have multiple 100+ year old trees blocking line of sight.

    You do have other options. I would love to be able to have Medicom's internet speed.

    I know I have other options. I just scoff at the notion that Mediacom's actually trying to keep their costs low.

    You don't think that Mediacom (a for-profit business) would attempt to keep their costs low?
