Channels remain dark while Cox & Raycom negotiate

Cox Communications is still negotiating with Raycom Media to restore programming to cable subscribers. Two channels owned by Raycom, KPLC and WAFB, went dark on Jan. 1 after the companies failed to reach an agreement on Dec. 31. The NBC and CBS affiliates will stay dark until an agreement is reached. "Raycom Media is withholding their programming from Cox customers because Cox won't give them a price increase that's more than 200 percent higher than what we already pay them for programming that is available for free over- the- air," Cox Communications Public Affairs Manager Patricia Parks Thompson said in a released statement.

Cox carries a second NBC affiliate in Acadiana, WVLA, which is Cox Channel 3 or 1003 in HD. Also, customers can use an over-the-air antenna to watch programs or log onto the network's website to watch programs online.

• WAFB/CBS - (SD) Channel 18
