    Anyone have luck getting out of a contract with this? Not having a local is ridiculous.

    Why, when your contract covers this explicitly. It's not even in fine print. It's at the top with stars, bolded, underlined.

    It may say that, but if I didn't read what I signed then it doesn't apply to me. :bluesbros

    The dangers of the ignore function. For me, there is no quote in your post. What's Tampa's excuse? :)

    Your confused you can not get service for locals for 4.95 from Comcast

    Min service. Digital Economy .....19.95
    Broadcast fee................................4.95
    Franchise fee................................6.00

    You also pay a regional sports fee that is not for FSD because the fee shows up on all accounts

    I wouldn't be so irritated with this mess if Dish had the OTA USB adapters in stock. Missing Fox and the CW in the Denver market

    Anyway..Back to live action. Any word on a possibility of a resolution of this dispute?
    I am pissed off because I have the superstation package and half the channels are missing.
    Including WPIX NY which has 35 Mets games.....

    You should know if there were, you would not need to ask.
