Standard tactic by now. Happened here in RI with NBC 10 last year. Message crawls along the bottom of the screen, etc.

Why do none of the links on wtvr.com point to the station management and allow viewers to express "don't be so greedy."

It's always the station that wants more. I think VZ is trying to hold the line. Mind you, not out of any real sympathy for their subscribers, but more because too many folks will ask why they're paying more for the same old crap.

Good OTA in my area just takes one capital investment for a good antenna and maybe a rotor. Always an option.

I suppose this issue could--though probably not--knock WTVR "off the fiber" but not "off the air" (and, fortunately, "The South's First Television Station" has a strong signal).

It doesn't matter if it is Verizon, Cox, Comcast, clear channel or pick the cable company of the month. It's going around. Oak Hill Capital is the group in the barrel this month. The viewers are just pawns in this war. It will be the consumers that will pay in the end, no matter who wins, we are the losers.
