WAFB vs. COX? - Who wins this fight?


Cox & WAFB are having a battle over $$$.

WAFB will be taken off of the Cox package effective tonight at 12AM.

Might be germans but IDGAF.

Cox. I'd imagine WAFB relies on Cox's market for advertising $$$ more than Cox relies on WAFB.

Plus this happens every few years.

How can you drop a broadcast network? Especially the highest rated one.

I think on New Years Day WAFB will still be part of the Cox lineup.

Agreement wasn't made, so COX customers are without WAFB now.

A message for COX Cable subscribers:

At WAFB, nothing is more important to us than providing south Louisiana with the very best in local news and weather, along with your favorite CBS programming.

In order to serve our viewers, WAFB has in place agreements with the cable and satellite companies that bring our station to your home. In fact, WAFB has such agreements in place with every TV provider in our area.

Unfortunately, we have been unable to reach an agreement with COX Cable.

Since October, 2012, we have been working to resolve this matter, but so far have been unable to reach an agreement with COX Cable for the continued carriage of WAFB. This is particularly disappointing because all the other TV providers in our area have Agreements with us and those Agreements are fundamentally similar to the one we have been negotiating with COX Cable.

As a result, on January 1, COX Cable customers lost access to WAFB.

We understand how frustrating this is for you. We share your frustration. After all, you pay COX Cable 100% of your bill each month. Why shouldn't you get 100% of your channels? You can reach your local COX Customer Service Representative at 1-800-457-8974.

WAFB is committed to resolving this matter and getting back on the dial. But in the meantime, you should know that you have choices. Our station remains available free over the air or from various other cable and satellite providers.

Thank you for your viewership and support.

WAFB is asking for a 250% increase from COx. WAFB is refusing to air on Cox, not the other way around.

I don't believe you. WAFB said it wasn't about money.

If they get it, maybe they can improve their weak transmitter, and then next time, their suggestion that everyone can just use OTA in the meantime won't be so laughable. While truly laughable, nothing compares to their "It's not about money" claim.

The only thing I watch on CBS is Survivor and SEC football, and neither are on right now anyway. So this was a bad time for WAFB to go extorting IMO.

Super Bowl is on CBS right? Wafb may have a bit of power.
