Miss my city stations... says:
I contacted Mediacom and the television stations right when this happened and was basically told that what they did was legal. No one said, as this rep stated, that it was not legal to provide the channels. I have a made a followup inquiry. No customer I've heard from is happy with this change...and there has been a lot of talk about it in the whole region!!!

Miss my city stations- the reworking of channels that Mediacom did is something that those of us that live in the country and rely on satellite tv. There are days that I wish i could watch network tv channels other than those that are currently available, KIMT, KAAL, KTTC, KSMQ, KXLT. But, due to FCC rules, which was mentioned by the Mediacom representative, local channels are limited to those that are in the customer's local market. If I wanted to receive WCCO, KSTP or KARE, I would need to petition the local tv equivalents-KIMT, KAAL, and KTTC for a waiver to be able to receive the other channels. The local tv stations are very unlikely to grant waivers.
