if you have direct tv you no longer get CH 5, well till they pay up and your rates go up but who's counting........

Yeah, I've heard them announcing that on KTLA for awhile, bummer for those who have direct, I love KTLA! Someone, somewhere mentioned Charter was also going to stop carry Channel 6, anybody heard anything on that?

Heard that this morning also. They are advising those with Direct to change providers or get an antenna and pick KTLA off the air

I knew about it and even called Directv the other day. They really don't care what their customers think.

I was bummed when I turn on the TV this morning and my news wasn't on. I'm pissed off and thinking about going to another provider.

I love the KTLA morning news and would suffer with out it. I am glad that Charter doesn't have the same problems as DirectTV does.

Yep...my favorite too! Tomorrow morning is going to suck without it. I'm going to give it a couple of weeks and then if it's not on then...bye bye

usualy they settle these at the last minute We don't get KTLA down here in our local pack but I wish we could. I'm still happier with direct then others I see.
Is Ch 5 available on the internet?

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

I miss my KTLA. But it's all business which means its all about money. We can't get cable and I know TOO many folks unhappy with Dish so I guess we're stuck ....or do what we do more often these days and pull it off the net! :-)

wish I could help but I am in and out this late. Kind of like I guess the hippies did in the sixties.
I do have a gripe.
Friday Desert Hot Springs started their no plastic bags. The rest of the state will start in Feb. So instead of Staters I drove to Walmart for shopping. Actually saved some money. So no sales tax for DHS. I would have gone to Palm Springs but I'm still protesting their higher sales tax.
Plus now I will have to start buying trash bags too.
By the way you can buy a better plastic bag for .30 each.
So there's my part of the show all in one post

I do crack myself up sometimes, but going solo at midnite is getting a little arduous.

Thanks for the link Benny.

Looks like the mid-range forecast is finally looking decent for this winter. Hope it's even better.

Funny you mention that. Someone from there emailed me a year or so back needing help with it, KBHR was going to help out, but I never heard back or the outcome.
