I'm sick of WINK TV and their delays. I had gotten info a month or two ago from a Comcast CSR that CBS was still negotiating terms with them.....looks like he may have been right. Funny how they added the retransmission verbage to this the latest delay....Quote:
WINK-TV and HDTV
Updated March 29, 2005 -
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted Fort Myers Broadcasting Company our DTV construction permit for WINK-DT on October 29, 2004. We are currently in the process of constructing our digital transmission facility.
Due to a longer than expected timetable for construction, delivery and installation of our digital studio facilities, our revised target date for providing you with CBS' HDTV programs via cable is May 15, 2005, assuming we are successful in negotiating a retransmission agreement withe the local Comcast and Time Warner Cable systems.
Once again, we apologize for the delay, and will continue to do our best to expedite the delivery of CBS HDTV programming into your home, via cable and over-the-air.
In the meantime, we hope you will continue to enjoy watching WINK-TV's highly respected news programs and quality entertainment programs.
Please know that we value you as a viewer and thank you for your patience.
