Comcast has stopped carrying WBGN.
Let them know you want this station back!
|On Monday, February 2,
2009 Comcast Cable dropped
WBGN-TV from its cable systems. Due
to the economic down turn, WBGN is unable to fully pay the exorbitant amount
of money that Comcast demands for carriage on their cable system. WBGN is
the only Pittsburgh TV station that Comcast charges for carriage. In fact,
Comcast pays most TV stations like CBS, ABC, NBC and FOX. Comcast can easily
carry WBGN at no charge to Comcast or Comcast customers. Unfortunately,
Comcast has decided that YOU (their customers) do not want WBGN and “The
It’s Alive Show” on their cable system.
You are paying Comcast plenty. They should give you
all the Pittsburgh channels!
Comcast will put WBGN back on if enough people threaten to drop their service over this. Here's the direct dial and e-mail for the one person who can restore WBGN to your channel line up:
