Yes with Dish last summer. They told people to switch providers then too, I wonder how the few clueless people who took the bait and switched to DirecTV feel about Sinclair now. They also had one with Time Warner back in 2011.

Why call DirecTV? They aren't the ones demanding more money, Sinclair is. If you're going to call anyone call Sinclair and let them know what they want is nuts.

I have friends that have worked at WPEC since it was an ABC affiliate and they say this is about the stupidest thing they've seen the parent company do.
