Cable Story: Windom Cable Communications (Windom, MN)

"In our carriage talks, the broadcasters and programmers take advantage of the fact that we're a small government run system operator.  They make take-it-or-leave-it offers, and coerce us into signing contracts with pages upon pages of complicated terms and conditions.  Our city doesn't have the money to hire outside attorneys to help us, so we're left with little option but to sign these contracts which lead to our customers paying higher rates, and we certainly do not make any money."

Dan Olsen, Director of Operations

Member Profile: Trust Communications (Jackson, MS)

"Year after year, the broadcasters and programmers put pressure on our company to add their affiliated networks to my basic programming package resulting in a more bloated, costly tier with channels that my customers neither want nor can afford.  Most of our Communication's customers in rural communities are satisfied receiving only 65 channels as basic, especially those in low income areas - not everyone wants to pay for 125 channels."

Steven Inzinna, President
