I did an internship with them, just to find out that working for news is not for me

I can do sport news but thats about it.

I met most of their staff, pretty cool people.

Sounds like they may have gotten a little greedy with their rights package. I've never understood this, local stations primary source of revenue should be from their commercial sales, not from their broadcast rights. It would seem that their advertising rates would be harmed by dropping a substantial portion of their viewing audience. But what do I know.

Yeah, from everything I've heard, WIS raised their rates. Funny that WIS is blaming Dish for not being able to come to an agreement when it's WIS's fault. Not a big loss for me though. I like their news broadcast, but not enough to really care. I'll just watch WLTX instead...

Doesn't sound like their rates were out of line with the market...kind of like AMC with who? Direct? Last year...gotta pay to play boys...

Last year I cancelled cable and hooked up the old rooftop antenna that was on our house from the 80's. All the local channels came in crystal clear in HD. The rest of the stuff we watch we get on Neflix or Hulu.

Raycom wanting 4 times more than the last contract is in line with the market? I understand prices increase, but that seems excessive.

I think Raycom will find that most people will switch to other stations for news and stream directly from NBC for network programming. They're overvaluing themselves when there are comparable (arguably better) options available.

Along these same lines, isn't CBS/WLTX close to being gone on TWC?

CBS, Showtime, etc. is gone on TWC. Networks stopped putting on good shows so people fled to "cable" channels for programming. Losing ad revenue so now they want subscribers to pick up the slack.

I say, let them eat cake and put on another crappy sitcom and worthless procedural drama.

Raycom (WIS's owners) are being greedy and stupid. What it's doing is forcing DISH subscribers to check out the competition (WLTX, WACH....) May find out we like them better than WIS.

Never really cared for WACH, I just didn't like their anchors or reporters. I do like WLTX though. WIS they just seem likable.

not saying they arent being greedy, but according to them they are extending the same offer to Dish that they have with other similar providers in the areas...sounds like Dish isnt willing to get off the money

also other than newscasts they arent really "competitors" as one is CBS and the other is NBC...if you want to watch NCIS or Under the Dome (CBS programming) you cant just go to the other and watch it...

I didn't lose CBS. However, Time Warner did remove the CBS-owned cable channels like Showtime, TMC, Smithsonian Channel.

Disappointing because I wanted to watch Finding Forrester last night but couldn't.

Well, according to DISH, Raycom's money demands are out of line with what they pay other providers. It's a case of 2 big media companies having a pissing contest and the only people that suffer are the consumers.
