I am extremely disappointed about the circumstances surrounding the dropping of WNEP from Scranton........The local traffic and weather information indigenous to the Scranton/Pocono area which WNEP provides is not available from any of the other stations carried by RCN.....What happened to the FCC regulation that requires cable TV companies to carry all TV signals receivable over the air via an ordinary antenna?


for benefit of those that dont know directly from WNEP web site

WNEP-TV is now off the air on the two cable systems in the Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton areas.
WNEP-TV does not have any agreements with Service Electric or RCN in the Lehigh Valley.
We do not have the right to air ABC programming on cable in the Allentown area.
If you live in the Lehigh Valley, many of you can tune in to WNEP-TV over the air (antenna) on Channel 7.
We did extend an offer to the Lehigh Valley cable companies to carry our news and local programming (not showing ABC shows) but both decided to drop our signal.
