As some of you may know, there is currently an ongoing dispute between charter cable and LIN TV the parent company that owns many affiliate television markets including CBS 42 in Birmingham. The fight currently is over an increase in retransmission fees. LIN TV is known to play hardball in the past they previously pulled all stations from Mediacom in 2008 for 6 weeks until they agreed to the higher fees.
Anyways, the contract expires in about 1 hour, meaning that CBS will be off the air in Birmingham on Charter here soon unless things have changed.
Has anyone heard anything new? or anyone planning on switching providers? getting an antenna for the game?
