It might not be illegal, but given the current state of ZERO competition and that they have a monopoly, "not doing anything illegal" really doesn't cut it.
I believe that if monopolies and single provider contracts are the norm, and if the FCC rules only allow the LOCAL feed in an area, then by george the government ought to DEMAND that they give the best service. We don't have any stinking choice!!! NONE!!! This isn't anything that Fox is sending down the pike...Go anywhere else in the US except and you will see brilliant 780 programming on Fox HD. We get the shaft. Period.
Congress needs to immediately repeal the local carry rule if the "local" can't provide HD programming...and allow the cable company to bring in whoever they want/can.
