no. Gray owns TV stations and Charter is just a cable company.Thanks for the welcome
Does grey or charter own each other?
But Charter (or any cable company) **IN MOST CASES** only carries the subchannels when they are on a local OTA station in the market. So by KDUH (KNEP) dropping Me & This then Charter (and Allo) will drop them too. There are a few cases where its kept (mainly on AT&T U-Verse) but for most cases they will be dropped
No what I mean is this summer the NBC which will be carried as a sub on channel 4 will be a local (Scottsbluff and areas around it) news. Not from North Platte or Cheyenne. The one question I've asked a couple times is will Gray drop the NBC on 10-2 in the area (thus wanting/forcing you to watch the new NBC on 4-2)By killing. 2 great channels it leaves a void, as for having a second NBC totally do not need 2 , as for local news from North Platte don't need it either, expansion of ABC panhadel news would suffice on 4.1 our weather patterns out here are close to rapid & Cheyenne, North Platte can be off by 20 degrees. North Platte is close to170 miles away so there news not as important as Scottsbluff.
part of the issue is bandwidth. When they add NBC to 4 that will give them 2 HD stations. They can add one SD station (like I say they do this in a few areas...North Dakota being one area. NBC on -1, in the west FOX on -2 in the East CBS on -2 and MetTV on -3. They could keep it. Best thing is to have folks in your area e-mail/facebook/call KOTA and tell them not to drop MeTV on Scottsbluff station.If they can't bring me & this back there are many subchannel options that could fill the void with a classic TV channel and a movie channel, I have quit watching 4.1 untill they fix there mistake. I joined Amazon PRI to help fill the void, and stream the weather & news I need.
