Mtn loses at least one provider

Post by ustate98 » August 26th, 2011, 5:52 pm

I kind of expected it but my local cable provider has dropped the Mtn. I wonder how many other of the local companies will also drop the channel.

Now my fears are coming to fruition. IF, I mean a big IF USU is ever in the MWC, will these providers come back? I doubt it. :bangwall:

Edit: However, if this can show the MWC that they are losing market.....who knows how to view it.

That was my thought too WRA, I also doubt they'll add the channel back if our Aggies ever join that conference. With the notice that came in the mail today they said they're replacing Mtn with ESPNU, which was only offered in higher priced packages before. This all takes place in 30 days.

I agree! I hope they drop their season opener, then they will be knocked off their high horse early.

Heck, I'd love to see Air Force hand them a little slice of humble pie. Maybe Ted Thompson would quit bending over for them.

I don't know if we would bring it back, but I would bet they wouldn't have dropped it if we were still in. It is more difficult to attain new customers than retain current one.
