I also wish Knology would add USA HD. I wish we could get Planet Green HD also especially since some Knology markets already have it. Does anyone know how much it costs to rent a CableCard?

In Huntsville, Knology charges $1.95/month for a CableCard. However, if you also have an HD cable box (or more than one CableCard), they charge the $9.95/month HD fee per device, so if you already have HD and add a CableCard, you'll add $11.90/month to your bill.

So I guess requesting things actually does work. My neighbor has been requesting ESPN360 for a while. Now if we can get USA HD, SyFy HD, and possibly a few others...we'll be set!

Still wondering where FOX Sports Florida HD & Sun Sports HD are though.

No new HD channels since 2009? Is there a reason why they don't have a large hi-def line-up, like most cable companies do these days?

I still request channels to Knology's Twitter page, but is there a better way to get the word out about channels that we actually want? USA HD & SyFy HD are still ones I want most.

Any other Knology customers have a wish list?

Well, since they haven't added any new HD channels to their line up since this last post of mine, and they raised their rates by about $25 since then, I've switched to Dish.

I switched my TV to DirectTV 3-1/2 years ago and haven't looked back. Far more channels and, for the same price, I get 4 HD DVR's, 1 DVR and 2 STD receivers. With Knology I got 2 HD/DVRs and 5 plain STBs.

I still have them for internet & phone but their TV sux pretty bad.

Well, Here's my Sig!!!

Whoa! WOW Buys Knology for $1.5B

The consolidation of the nation's Tier 2/3 MSOs continued Wednesday as WideOpenWest Holdings LLC (WOW) plunked down US$1.5 billion in cash to acquire Knology Inc. (Nasdaq: KNOL), a cable overbuilder that's been on a mini-M&A tear of its own. (See WOW! Buys Knology .)

With the addition of Knology, WOW will become the nation's thirteenth-largest pay-TV operator, with about 800,000 customers and 2.8 million homes passed in 13 states combined.

There's no system overlap, as both companies primarily operate cable networks that compete with incumbent MSOs such as Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK), Bright House Networks , Charter Communications Inc. , Mediacom Communications Corp. (Nasdaq: MCCC) and Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE: TWC), depending on the market. WOW's current footprint touches parts of Michigan, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana, while Knology serves pockets of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, South Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee.

WOW is paying $19.95 per share, a 34 percent premium on Knology's average closing share pricing during a three-month period in which reports have speculated that WOW was preparing a bid for Knology. Knology shares were up $1.27 (7.04%) to $19.32 in early trading Wednesday. (See Knology Surges on M&A Speculation .)

Knology ended 2011 with 1,861 full-time employees, according to its 10-K. WOW Chief Marketing Officer Cathy Kuo declined to comment on any potential organizational changes coming as a result of the deal, but noted that the WOW and Knology teams will be working together over the next couple months on future plans.

Why this matters
The combination gives WOW more scale, which could help in programming and equipment negotiations and help it compete with much larger MSO and satellite TV rivals. Knology is also getting access to an upgraded broadband infrastructure and to new markets such as wireless backhaul. Knology, for example, has invested $9.7 million since 2009 to grab a 12 percent stake in Tower Cloud Inc.

It also marks another round of consolidation for the nation's Tier 2/3 MSOs. Knology has typically been on the buying end of that, as it has recently acquired Sunflower Broadband and Private Cable Co. LLC. More M&A moves may be on the way, as Wave Broadband is also reported to be on the block.
