Can you say extortion? First it was the high def signal, now they are going to deny Charter from carrying their regular programming unless Charter pays them. I think it's time that we think about a class action suit against Belo/KMOV corporation.

What a bunch of crap! I just seen that today that KMOV will no longer be available after Jan 1. I am sick of them anyway.

Agreed! KMOV should be glad Charter carries their signal. It's total bull that Channel 4 wants us to pay to watch them through Charter when we could watch them for free over the air. I hope Charter hangs tough. I bet Belo blinks first. They will lose viewers immediately, while it would take awhile for Charter to lose subscribers... and I don't think they would lose that many anyway. There are a LOT of other viewing options. KMOV shouldn't think that we can't do without them on cable.

I wounder, If KMOV loses 440000 house holds are they going to discount their advertising rates.
Their market just got a lot smaller.

Just change your tv's to either dish or direct because you know that eventually everything will have a charge to it now.

KMOV was the last channel to switch to Digital so I think they like everyone else wants $$$$

How to cut cable and satellite tv and save thousands of dollars.
Forget KMOV and do this
I was a loyal customer with Charter TV for many years.(1997)
About 10 months ago, when they increased my monthly bill
once again, I went to their office and told them they were
taking advantage of a good customer. They said they couldn’t
do anything about my cable tv charges increase.
That day I had two people in line ahead of me returning their
Charter equipment.
The next day, I took my unit and remote and terminated
my Charter Communications cable tv service and once again,
there were two people in line returning theirs.
Just think how many are turning in their equipment if within about
a total of ten minutes, five people, including myself , quit Charter.

I get all kinds of shows online, plus I got Netflix.
I installed an antenna in my attic and get 22 clear, sharp tv stations:
ABC…CBS…NBC..Fox..PBS and lots of others.
The antenna was less than $100.00 dollars and it’s simple to install.
I’m not the least mechanically inclined and I installed mine.

Charter called, sent numerous letters trying to get me to
come back and even sent a Charter representative to my home.
I told them when I took my equipment back that I’d
never use their services again. TV…phone…or internet.
Today I figured my savings and it’s over $1,100.00.
Picture counting out eleven $100.00 bills; that’s real money I still
have that Charter doesn‘t.
They can keep their overpriced cable tv.
The antenna is a one time cost and Netflix is about $8.00 per month.
I’m completely satisfied with Charter's replacement.
If you’re smart, you’ll get rid of them too.
