Yeah, I agree. WPRI is an important local channel. This would be unacceptable.

Hope you are complaining to WPRI as well. You do realize it is a two way street. Smiley Wink

Don't be fooled by the propaganda. It's LIN Media, the parent of WPRI-TV (CBS 12) and WNAC-TV (FOX 64) that's pushing this issue. They've done it with both COX and DirecTV in previous carry renewal cycles.  LIN wants to blackmail the carriers into paying to carry the ridiculous sub-channels which are filled with infomercials and syndicated programming that's on dozens of other low-tier cable and broadcast channels.  Surprise, surprise - the last two times LIN played this game in the Providence market was when the Superbowl was on FOX and CBS respectively!  Screw them and their draconian tactics.  If I have to go over-the-air this time, hey, the BOSTON stations - CBS-4 and Fox-25 - cover almost all of RI with no drop-out whatsoever.  {word filter avoidance} LIN Media -they screw up FIOS access during the NFL Playoff season and  I'll NEVER watch their Providence markets again.  CBS and FOX on-demand plus Boston OTA, babay!

I won't take sides, but I do find it ridiculous that wpri runs constant commercials blaming Verizon for the crisis, and immediately people come running here to complain. 

 

Use your brains, people! It takes both sides to cooperate to get a deal done, the burden is not just on Verizon to give in. 

 

Don't come ranting just based on what a television station tells you.
