I agree, I do not miss the KFVS12 news. We hear more about Cape Girardeau from the channel 3 and channel 6 news. So I'm happy without the news but I do miss other things that are broadcast on channel 12. Maybe we can get a new company to broadcast in Cape Girardeau. I feel the local advertisers should be refunded their advertising fees while the public is not seeing advertising during Raycom's greediness. Good luck with that though.

Does this mean we won't know when it is raining in Kentucky and Indiana any more? Boy, I'll certainly miss that.

They were more than happy to refund 5.00 bucks a month that's better than nothing we took it KFVS sucks any way we watch channel 6 news and find out more about Cape........
Thats the truth! I grew up in cape, left town for awhile. When i moved back i couldnt believe how much the news had changed. On the weather you get everyone elses weather and temp except for cape. Half the time u cant see cape on the map. Other stations report more cape news and cape weather than capes on tv station. Its a shame.

I watched WPSD this morning and their morning crew is less obnoxious and way easier on the eyes than KFVS.
And I'm sick of that Tim Ingram "telling" me what to do. Even suggesting we switch to Direct TV. KFVS is streamed live over the internet and it's FREE !! So if you need your fix, go there.

at first i was mad at dish and was gonna switch. I researched it and found out raycom wants four times the amount they got for their last contract. Way more than their competitor channels. i decided to stay with dish cuz its cheaper than other providers and they are standing their ground with raycom so they can keep their packages resonably priced. Thank u dish network! Raycom channels are free with an antenna anyways.
Ok here is what I am curious about, they want four times the amount but four times what? A dime? If they want 40 cents instead of ten then ok so what. Dish can afford that. unlike you i dint believe everything dish tells me, i think dish is being just as shady as KFVS.

One problem with this. They arent the "cape" news. They have a coverage "area". They just happened to be located in cape. So ur argument doesnt really hold. I wouldnt expect them to do more cape news just because they are locates there. I would expect them to cover their "area"

I suspect Dish Network is the one being greedy. That would explain why they stopped carrying AMC and Nickelodeon.

Dish still carries AMC and Nick.

Dish makes bad calls sometimes, but you can't blame them for this. Raycom has this problem with every single satellite or cable provider in the area. There's no way it's anyone but Raycom Media's fault.

I think Tim Ingram overestimates the value and demand for KFVS. I mean seriously, what are we missing? News? We can get that online or on our cell phones for no additional charge with our data plans and internet providers. Weather? There's an APP for that ! Kfvs even has their own app and it didn't cost a dime to install on my phone. CBS Programming? Well, guess what, we can watch all those shows online too, at our convenience without interruption from KFVS. I honestly don't see this as a bad thing. Besides I don't have to see Tim's whiny, Laurel & Hardy looking face anymore and that's definitely NOT a bad thing.

I still get both of these channels. I'm glad DISH is standing up to them because if they give in to their demands that means we'll be paying too. I've had DISH for 13 years and have no complaints with their service. Sure my bill has went up over the years but what hasn't?:(

I have heard where Raycom us asking Direct for a rate increase as well and direct told them no. Here we go again with them. KFVS won't be on dish or direct.

Hopefully Direct TV will stand their grounds too!! KFVS is not as important as they THINK they are.

Again we need to remember that this is "white people problems". Other people in other countries are trying find something to eat, we are worried about not getting the 6 oclock news. Lets put this in perspective and realize its no freakin big deal. I try to use this perspective as much as I can. Makes u realize just how rich and blessed we all are. We forget too easily and make such a fuss over something so silly as this why other people are worried about water and food and whether or not someones cutting off their head today or not.

Then why are you on Topix complaining about us complaining about our First World Problems when you could be out helping people?

Its funny you think it's the kfvs12 news team doing these negotiations... It's raycom media, way bigger than kfvs. Stop blaming kfvs. It's a very large multi state company called Raycom Media. Yes they are a bit arrogant and want 3 times the amount from dish network than they get from charter and direct. I'm glad dish says no, if they give in to deals like this we would have to pay much more like you do for direct or charter!!

That was message was for me too. Notice I said "we". That includes me. I was more referring to our attitude and our perspective. I was ticked like everyone else until I put it into the right perspective and realized it isnt a big deal compared to real world problems. Was just sharing my perspective. And yes I do feel good thank u:)
