If you get such great service from Dish Network why are you concerned with Mediacom in the first place? And If it makes you feel better to say they are lying then more power to you, my cousin says they are telling the truth and he works for comcast so i think i will take his word over yours.

BTW regarding my memory, I was refering to a story over a year ago, sorry I didn't take notes. Far as I am concerned this discussion is closed.

P.S. Perhaps WG&L should get us some new power lines to replace the pestilence WG&L screws us with. Maybe then the electricity in my neighborhood wouldn't go out everytime it drizzles.

No they are not lying. You say Dish Network added a few Food channels at no additional charge, well that may be true on some small scale network spinoff of a channel that already exist on the lineup, but most of your bigger network channels charge a fee based on subscriber count and Dish Network dropped some channels because of those incresed fees. It was on the local news WALB & Fox 31. Mediacom at one point dropped Peachtree TV because of increased fees and Direct TV or dish (Can't remember which one) did the same thing, but Mediacom ended up putting them back on. The city of Albany had already done a study to see if it was feasible for them to get into cable and the study came up negative.

No they are not lying because I have a cousin that works for Comcast cable and they have the same problem with network providers raising programming fees on them. Ask Dish network why they dropped some of their channels off their line-up. It was because the networks wanted to raise their programming fees. So instead of raisinbg their fees they elected to drop them off their line-up, but then customers complained about that as well.

Another way would be for the network channels to stop charging the cable companies for airing their programming. After all the networks get a lot of revenue money from sponsors for running their TV ads nationally and they can charge a hefty price based on the ratings that network brings in.

You would have thought they would have learned from the 1st 4 years.

Proctor has done a better job than the last two jokers we had as police chief. It's hard to get good police officers when the pay is so low. They would rather use that money to buy arches, signs and a brand new bus depot.

They ain't lying, The cable companies don't get those channels for free. The networks are always raising the programming fees and it affects all cable companies and Satellite companies. They ain't doing what no other business wouldn't do and that is pass the cost over to the customers. That is why some satellie companies dropped some channels to avoid paying more for those channels.
