Cable One may drop KSN in three days
To our viewers who subscribe to CableOne:
We regret to inform you that you may lose access to station KSNF at 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2015.
Nexstar has successfully reached agreements with all major carriers prior to now and we have been diligently negotiating with CableOne to secure a new agreement for continued carriage of KSNF by CableOne.
Did you know CableOne pays more than $7.00 for carriage of ESPN and more than $1.65 for TNT? All Nexstar is requesting is that CableOne pay fair market value for the NBC and local programming we bring to you, our viewers, everyday. We expected that we would reach an agreement to allow you – our viewers – to continue receiving KSNF on an uninterrupted basis from CableOne
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts we may not come to an agreement and you may lose KSNF on December 31, 2015.
In addition to all of the great NBC including The Voice, The Blacklist, NFL Sunday Night Football and the 2016 Summer Olympics, KSNF provides more than 25 hours of news and local programming to the four-state area. We are disappointed that CableOne has elected not to pay a fair price for KSNF and regret that we have not be able to reach an agreement.
If you would like to be ensured of continuing to receive KSNF after December 31, below are a few providers who will be serving our community after that date: DirecTV: 417-782-4222 DISH: 417-782-4222
