Time Warner Cable Black Out of KMBC

Time Warner refuses to negotiate with KMBC's parent company.  This has caused KMBC and KCWE to be blacked out in the Kansas City Metro on Time Warner Cable.  A company that has increased our cable bills by $5.00 a month every year for the past few years.  Time Warner claims that it is not negotiating in order to save us all from another rate increase.  I do not buy it.  It is now to start looking for alternatives.  I'm thinking that it's time to cut of the video side of Time Warner and only pay for Internet access, seeing as there is no alternative in my part of the metro.  Maybe by the sometime next Google will actually roll out their Fiber service metro wide and then there will competition for at least Internet Service.

$30.00 well spent at best buy has given us access to all local channels over the air.  Maybe I should deduct that in $5.00 increments over the next for months from Time Warner's bill!
