Haven't heard anything.
Just in wait mode hoping something is comming.
Emailed the station manager here in Grand Rapids, MI for the local NBC affiliate (LIN station) about a month ago and no news regrettably. It's a shame too. NBC is the only local station owned by LIN and you know who's got the Olympics this time around. Fortunately, I can get them OTA with a pair of rabbit ears but it certainly would be nice to take those ugly things down and just use the DirecTV feed. I'm looking at getting a DVR (only 2 h20-100's right now) and I'm afraid I'm going to have to pony up the money for the AM21 just because of LIN.
Are they as powerful as these witches?
<Snort> I would have to say more powerful.
Charter's agreement with Lin is up in June and Lin is saying they may stop carrying
I'll bet Charter caves.
How long before the actual networks step up and play hardball with LIN? At some point their deals with the networks will be up for renewal, and I can't wait to see how much luck LIN has in trying to play hardball with the networks. They will probably laugh in their faces and tell LIN to pound sand... Karma's a *&^%$&!!!
I hope charter doesn't cave, for so many reasons.....
Our local Lin station (WTNH) has a ticker running at the bottom of the screen to get updates.
WTNH isn't going to do anything except follow the party line at Lin.
Notice the reference to E*?
Don't get me started all over again on LIN and WTNH!!!! Lakers/Celtics on ABC....standard def thanks to the CROOKS at LIN!!!!
Charter are on the "cheap *******" side of the cableco side of the ledger
Don't be so sure...
Deep Breaths... :eek2:
Didn't mean to give you an aneurysm. :lol:
In Albuquerque it is CBS. I HATE LIN as much as you do. I don't understand why they can get away with this!
Thats worth suing over!!!!!!
I wonder what program they use that spits out those BS letters.....
LIN has a history of asking for more than any other local broadcast network. There is no question about that. Don't believe their letter. NO broadcast station was ever paid a fee for carriage on any pay system until a few started to do it recently... And get real... they get a lot more money for advertising than any cable channel as a general rule. There are very few exceptions to that rule.
That's absolutely right.
Just look at the number of markets where the Lin stations are the only ones not in HD.
DIRECTV doesn't like it, but will this help?
Thanks to Doug Brott for the link.
If it's upheld it puts Lin in the driver seat.
DirecTV would have to pay what ever Lin is charging. :eek2:
Fine. Blow up your transmitter, then. What, you want your OTA rights AND cable-style fees? Sorry.
LIN is just an outright joke.
LIN isn't just jerking DirecTV around.
