    Re: Sinclair offers Mediacom extension

    I seriously think this is because of the Hawkeye game. They don't want to lose those ratings in Iowa. It will help bargain.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Sinclair offers Mediacom extension

    mediacom was offered a freeview of the NFL network but I think part of the deal was that mediacom would of had to add the NFL network to their lineups

    The paper said that the ABC network in eastern Iowa asked to show the game and the NFL network said that ONLY WOI could show the game and only in the "cyclone market" of Ames and Des Moines. So no, they did not offer Mediacom the game for free.

    Re: Sinclair offers Mediacom extension

    Just curious, does anyone know why this kind of problem doesn't come up all the time with ABC, CBS or NBC? Always Sinclair and FOX.

    Nick Johnson has some interesting comments about the Medicom/Sinclair problem and how it relates to changes in the broadcast industry.

    Just this morning I heard a report about the conflict between News Corp and Time Warner. It sounds like the same problem, just much bigger. Here is a link to a story that puts our local issue in the national context.
