It was with deep regret that we reported the inability of Comporium
cable and WCNC
to work out a DTV rebroadcast agreement before the Winter Olympics. Even more important to the
Charlotte area was the Daytona 500, but they missed that too. Thankfully, the Olympics aren't over yet, so Rock
Hillians can rejoice in South Carolina because NBC is back in high-def on cable channel 306! Comporium and WCNC
negotiated on an almost daily basis to come to terms, which were not disclosed.
We're thrilled for the
residents that have their NBC in high-def over cable, but it's still
concerning how cable operators
and broadcast affiliates could disagree on rebroadcast terms only to have consumers suffer in the long run. Anyway,
welcome back to the high-def party!
(Thanks for the tip Chris!)
