like other cable systems, cox pays fees to rebroadcast original content. the biggest chunk of your monthly cable bill goes to pay for espn...8 bucks a month per customer....t.n.t gets 1.65 per customer. local providers, including klas and the other network affiliates, get a tiny fraction of that, even though the local stations are the biggest draw for cable systems. howfield says, after 5 months of intense negotiations, cox is unwilling to pay a fraction of what channel 8's programming generates for the cable company. lisa: it's crazy. broadcasters bring about 35% of the audiences to any given cable system around the country and we get around 12% of those retransmission revenues. ... we're asking for a fraction of that.... howfield says cox stormed out of the last negotiation session and is unwilling to budge, even though the other local providers...incl uding satellite companies..alre ady agreed to a deal.

but in a statement the company said it is willing to pay more but thinks that the demands made by nexstar, the parent company for klas, are "unreasonable". howfield is asking that klas viewers contact cox and urge them to settle this lisa: we're really upset at this point. we don't want our viewers to have to go through this but we're really at the point where we need people to rally around us and help us out on this. george knapp 8 news now > ((patranya bhoolsuwan)) on our website, we have posted information about how you can reach out to cox either by phone or social media. you can also read a full statement from klas and comments sent by cox communication s. again, the deadline is january 29th. after that cox will no longer carry any channel 8 programming including this newscast./// patranya bhoolsuwan that's all the time we have for 8 news now this morning.
