Contact your congresscritter. Tell them how they are taking their "license to broadcast" and using it as a "license to extort".

I still think its ridiculous that cable and satellite companys have to pay to have local channels on their service that you can receive for free OTA. If I was a local channel owner I would gladly give my signal to them at no cost. You would get more viewers, and local businesses would get more customers.

ANY time a local OTA stations goes off air because they are asking for new or higher fees.. I always blame the stations. I mean, hello.. their customers could put up an antenna... its highway robbery to charge the sat and cable companies because your programing sucks so much that you can't make enough money via your advertising and marketing department...

They reached an agreement. :joy: I got a e-mail from KXJB's general manager saying they came back on the air at 8:00am today. :icon_bb: :icon_da:
