RE: New Channel Desired - OANN

Especially in light of the NBC and CBS hostage situation, why not drop those channels and pick up the One America News Network (OANN)?  As a cable customer, I would greatly appreciate the move.

    What do you mean by "NBC and CBS hostage situation"?

    The situation whereby NW Broadcasting is demanding a huge amount of money for Spectrum to buy access to NBC and CBS.

    I guess that's regional, because I haven't noticed any disruption in service.


    Good luck with that situation!


    In the meantime, if you have a Roku, you can get a number of news channels for free, that might help while you're waiting for your local NW Broadcasting/Spectrum NBC and CBS situation to get resolved.
