ION TV Channel
We wanted to explain to our customers the reason channel 61 is no longer ION TV and is now WGN. It basically is due to the new carriage requirements of the local broadcast stations such as FOX, ABC, CBS and NBC. They forced carriage of a new channel and we had to bump out ION to make room for their channel. We understand there are loyal ION viewers but we didn’t have any other options after the local broadcast contracts were negotiated. The last two bill stuffers had information on this upcoming change. We knew the change wouldn’t be popular with some people but we didn’t have choice in the matter. We apologize for having to remove ION but hope you understand why we had to do it.
