    I just saw a crawler across the bottom on the screen on KATU that KATU will not be on Frontier cable after 12/1/17. I do not know where Frontier in located, but it must affect the KATU listener area. Out here we have Charter.

    Frontier called Sinclair’s proposed renewal price “unreasonable” and stopped responding to Sinclair’s follow-up offers.

    Unreasonable hmmm? And, when we compare that to what ESPN gets each month? The broadcast nets receive the majority of the viewing and get paid below average. ESPN gets close to $7 per subscriber per month from EVERY cable and satellite bill. Your average broadcast net gets just over $1.

    Frontier bought out Verizon Fios in Washington County years ago. Sinclair also owns Comet and KUNP 47, so cable subscribers might lose those channels too??

    Probably effective 1 January.
