TV Question

Roswell, GA

Folks who are on Charter for cable TV, what do you think about moving to MediaStream.

I am very concerned in looking at their station line-up that there is no Georgia influence except 1 station from Savannah.

WALB goes away....also Atlanta stations which give us what is going on in the legislature etc.

Hope people will complain and they will add these stations.... All of their national affiliates are through Jacksonville.

Have you heard something different?

I got a letter in the mail a few days ago saying starting FEB.15 mediastream will take over charter. I called the number on the letter and it rung me to charter but they had no clue and said that there was going to be no switch. I don't like it.

Mediastreamga.com is website. No firm channel lineup is listed but there's announcement about wtoc . Walb does coffee cc no favors. Sick of their signal freezing up, I know Charters tired of hearing about it.. I do like wswg, hope they stay. We need more hd offerings of networks. Would like a Jax channel back.

The Savannah station is good. Bacon co people get it now. Also, no bill from Charter this month. Strange.

Hope they at least add one ATL for better state news. Also more HD offerings.

I got one of those letters today.

Looks like illegal advertising to me.
Tries to word it like they are taking over but they make no mention of Charter and they do not have my account # on the letter.

"This letter is an update about the transition to Mediastream from the previous provider."

This type of letter could confuse some and they will call and get their cable changed. I do not know anything about Mediastream but IMO this is a sucky way to get new customers.

Nothing illegal about it. As of Feb 15th you will have Mediastream cable whether you like it or not.

WALB ain't local, folks. And it is a horrible station.

MediaStream's prices on cable are better than Charter. Check out their website. The letter that came did seem strange. I thought it was junk mail and almost tossed it but glad I didn't. That's when I checked out their website. It does mention Douglas.

You can always get WALB news @ WALB.com

However, I am very anxious to see their other channel line up.... I like 11Alive ATL and I do no know if it is included in their lineup.

Go to mediastreamga.com for channel listings. Hopefully we'll continue to get the Atlanta channels.

I think that number was for Charter. We'll still have Charter for about 3 months during the transition.

We need a Jacksonville Fox network station because I am tired of the one out of Albany, GA freezing up.

Something must be wrong with your equipment because I have Dish and Fox out of Albany doesn't freeze up.

I am on Charter and they said there is a problem with the "headend". Charter told me years ago they were working on it. They finally said the problem was the weak signal out of Albany, GA.

Charter traded systems not sold 3 months ago, media stream has already bought a new antenna to fix the local channel issue, channel line up and pricing is very similar to what u have now .
