Saw the story this morning on local Philly ABC, few other sites, and just got an email. 
Basically it's a blame game now with these two mega-greedy slobs.

So no deal by Monday 5pm ET, I guess I lose my ABC channel. (local ABC in New York City is also affected also). This angers me to no end! AngryAngry  I supposed I can get one of those uglya** HD antennas, SMH.

Ahhh, time for contract negotiations again. I have Cox as my provider and I see these "chicken little" scenarios from time to time.

Yeah I know Dish has these issues a lot. Other cable providers. Verizon does drop channels from time to time - mostly channels I even even heard of, knew I had. But to lose a local channel I've had my entire life..a free channel I had on a  basic black and white TV when I was a damn kid, that does irk me! And I do watch ESPN...so I'll lose that. No deal has been set and the channels will go dark tomorrow at 5pm (12/31) Losing my local news, that ticks me off. Losing Jeopardy also. Anyway, I'll check out Walmart or Target today for one of those inexpensive HD antennas so I can still access my local Philly ABC. If these idiots strike a deal in the next 30 days - I'll just return the antenna.

They won't be happy until they have it all down to one or two networks, and then "YOU WILL WATCH WHAT WE WANT YOU TO!"
