CUSTOMER NOTICE: Channel Lineup Notification!

Important Notice and Notification of Potential channel lineup change

On December 31, 2014 LocalTel's current retransmission consent agreements to carry KONG (ch 2), KING (ch 5), KOMO (ch 4), KIRO (ch 7) and KREM ( ch 19) will expire.

As we continue to negotiate, it is our hope that new agreements can be reached for each channel.
In case our negotiations are not successful, the FCC requires that we provide a 30 day notice to our customers in the event we no longer have permission to carry a channel.

If new individual agreements are not reached by Dec 31, 2014, those individual channels will go dark.

We do have the Spokane Feeds for ABC, NBC under contract, which offer essentially the same broadcast line up as their Seattle affiliate.

In the past, these three year retransmission agreements have been easily reached as rate increase requests to be charged by the affiliates have not been as dramatic.

However this has changed over the years and some of these Seattle Affiliates are now demanding for 2015 a rate increase of upwards of nearly 300%.

We are not allowed by agreement to publicize the exact amount of the increases, but we feel there is no justification for this large of rate increase. Inflation has been low, the incremental cost of distributing the content to us is negligible, their news content is generally viewable for free on the internet, etc...

LocalTel Communications is committed to remaining a cost competitive option for Cable TV and to continue to remain the area's Best Cable TV Provider.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to your feedback. You can contact us via email at localteltv@localtel.net
