Word reached Robert Dobbins about 6:15 p.m. Thursday night: The World Series game between Detroit and San Francisco was on channel 28. The Coeur d'Alene man quickly moved from the uncomfortable straight back chair in his bedroom, in front of the TV with a makeshift antenna, to his more spacious living room with recliners and couch and a large screen high-definition TV. Much better. "That's fantastic," he said as he settled down to cheer on his beloved Giants. The return of the FOX network - channel 28 through Northwest Broadcasting's KAYU Spokane - to DirecTV was a pleasant surprise to local DirecTV customers. They've been without FOX for about three months due to a price dispute between Northwest Broadcasting and DirecTV/Bill Buley, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
DFO: This is the second time I've gone without Channel 28 as a result of a dispute with a cable provider. I broomed Time-Warner the first time it happened. Now that it's happened to DirecTV, too, I'd say that KAYU may be more responsible for the disruption.
Question: Who do you get your cable/satellite TV from? What do you pay for it?
