In NE Ohio  Spectrum Cable   Fox Cleveland, Ohio  is off the air.  Old contract expired this past Tuesday @ 5:00 pm. Formerly known as Time Warner Cabke, they are in contract dispute with Tribune Broadcasting over the fee to rebroadcast. Tribune wanted 3x the old fee, now they are proposung 2x the old fee.  Usually these channel shutdowns last a few days to a couple weeks.  

Viya is in same situation. They are refusing to pay the new fee to rebroadcast CBS & ABC.

There has been a lot of changes to the Dish Network line up too.

A lot of broadcasters are moving to the streaming world it seems.

It doesn't matter to me...I have pretty much switched to streaming on my Roku and Amazon box for the most part.

They have a lot of Canadian channels in their line up, which interests me.

But, I wouldn't watch 95% of the channels listed so $15 a month is still a waste for me.
