    Fortunately we get to stop hearing about this, unfortunately it'll happen again in one year.

    Now mediacom will jack up rates by $5/month to make up for the extra 20 cents they have to pay to sinclair.

    Why doesn't this annual dispute ever happen in June? (Rhetorical question.)

    Wow, I really didn't think this would get resolved!!!!


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

    Re: Mediacom and Sinclair Settle

    My experience with Mediacom is pretty slim but yesterday I determined that I would never do business with them again. I called them to figure out what there rates were for there internet. I was on the phone with them for atleast 10 minutes and got nothing. I got switched to 3 different people and the guy that I finally dealt with in there customer service dept. had absolutely no clue. He was so worried about getting my personal info that I just hung up. I can understand them needing my name and address to see what kind of internet service they are able to provide me but asking me for my phone number, birthday, etc is just insane. Mediacom SUCKS!!

    If Mediacom were smart they'd negotiate a 6-month extension. Maybe except for the occasional baseball game, no one would care if we couldn't watch KDSM from June to August.

    For all we know, they did. Neither party is dumb, and I'm sure Sinclair would never agree to a contract ending in the summer (after the new shows end in May).

    Re: Mediacom and Sinclair Settle

    When does Fox's FCC license need to be renewed? As a community that would be the best way for all of us to help this out and keep it from happening again. If the FCC deemed that Sinclair/Fox were not operating in the interests of the public they can get their license revoked and we could get a new Fox station.

    I would assume that with the constant rate increases for a channel that has no original content would be considered operating outside of the public interest.

    Methinks someone doesn't know what rhetorical means.
