Im from the Omaha NE thread. Looks like we have the same problem. Emmis owns one of your stations (WKCF) in the area and they will not let them put there HD Channel on Cable as they want Money for a Free over the air channel.
Please help and Email Emmis and let them know what you think.
===============Pasted from the thread==============
Looks like over in the Omaha-Lincoln Ne Thread the Cox Cable Emmis issue is still alive.
Emmis pulled there CBS HD from Cox cable one year again demanding money for the free over the air channel.
Here is the thread:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/show...&pagenumber=130
Here is some info on who to Email- pated from the thread
Here are the EMAIL Addresses for the Top VPs at Emmis Corp (the ones who own KM3 and the ones who made them pull the HD).

(below is a line by line list)
Please Email them weekly and ask for the free HD channel to be put back on.
KM3 and Emmis one year ago said they pulled there HD Feed because cox was charging for it and making money on it.
Things have changed in the last year.
Now all cable systems in a Emmis area offer the Local HD channels FREE unscrambled via free QAM channels.
This means the Emmis reasoning is no longer valid. They have no reason to demand money for a FREE OVER THE AIR HD Signal.
After all the Government, our tax money gave them the channel. We should be able to watch it free over the air and free on cable.
It is time for Emmis to add KM3 HD back to Cox.email@example.com@firstname.lastname@example.org@email@example.com@firstname.lastname@example.org
