But the NY Post (surprisingly) cleared it up for me. It is all about retransmission money. Cox gets higher retransmission fees so by owning just one current Cox station, the new TEGNA can charge a higher retrans rate for the entire group. Plus, Cox unloads an underperforming station. So now that part makes sense. Retransmission fees are killing the golden goose. My cable bill got to be so high that I finally pulled the plug. And a big reason for it was those retransmission fees. And I didn't have a lot of extras, just the medium package. I also don't understand why cable companies don't offer a package that does not include local stations. I am perfectly capable of picking them up off the air. If they were smart, they would have technology to make it seamless, so you can flip back and forth between cable channels and regular tv, like it almost is using a Roku box. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
