All of the Berkshire Representatives have been working on the unfortunate decision that Charter/Spectrum cable television made to remove Channel 22. We have joined with our federal partners, Senators Warren and Markey and Congressman Neal, in efforts to keep 22 in our line-up. It happened because it is quite often that our region is lumped in with the Albany, New York media market. They want us to be viewing television commercials from this media market and not that of the Hartford/Springfield media market. As you know, this is not the first battle fought against losing cable programing that we want to keep.
Our region keeps Boston Channels 4 and 5 because we fought back and demanded to have them remain in our viewing line-up. Our region’s cable subscribers need to take action again. By calling or emailing Charter/Spectrum, our Senators and Representative in Washington, and the FCC, we may be able to win this battle to keep Channel 22. This requires action from citizens like you. If they do not hear from you, Spectrum will do whatever it wants.
I talked about this on my monthly WNAW radio program with Mike Garland on March 23rd. Below is all the contact information to take action. Please do share this information with anyone in our viewing area that would like to have their view registered with these offices.
Call: 1-855.225.7898 Let them know you are a former Time Warner customer and that you want to keep WWLP channel 22 Springfield, MA on your basic line-up. Be firm if they give you any ‘run-around’ and ask if there is another number to call to have your request/complaint registered.
