Re: [Tampa] Might lose WFLA CH8?

You should also contact Channel 8 and let them know that you are tried of seeing your cable bill go up every year because they...Channel 8 and NBC want cable providers to pay more to carry their channel. All network increases always flow to our Cable bills in the form of increases. At some point all cable providers need to say NO to price increases...this is a situation where we the end users have no say but....we end up paying the higher cost. The Banner you see on Channel 8 is meant to make watchers think its all on the Cable providers, its not....

Media General is able to keep its stations on Bright House Networks while an agreement is being reached. Bright House Networks has to have their permission to show their programming. Its up to them to grant or deny it. There is no reason for Media General to interrupt programming to viewers. Our customers satisfaction is our ultimate goal and we will work in an expedient manner for them.

It's a 50-50 type of negotiation, much like our congress. Bright House, owned by Time-Warner if that tells you anything, want to make a fortune but don't want to pay for the channels they carry. Yet they raise customer rates whether there are price increases or not. The networks want to make a fortune and want the cable provider to pay up or lose their channel. So lose it, who else is going to carry you. Verizon until you start sticking it to them alsol. There needs to be a compromise for the sake of the subscribers who feed their families and pay their bills.
