CLICK: Network offers welcome competition

I am sorry that KOMO TV and Click cannot come to a contract agreement.

I remember too well the sorry service, high fees and nonavailability of programs when we had access to only one cable company. I am not a proponent of government getting involved in private business enterprise, but as no other private business would intercede so that we could receive good and fair service, I signed on with Click at the first opportunity and will remain a customer. I have friends who have moved out of Tacoma and wish they could still receive Click.

I can watch the TV shows that I am missing online or by purchasing a digital antenna, so KOMO’s inability to come to an agreement with Click is of little bother. The business competition is necessary and more important than not being able to get KOMO. Comcast has proven over and over that in areas that they have no competition, it is an incompetent dictator.

As an analogy to this situation, since Click has not had this problem with any other broadcasters: I work for the post office and have several hundred customers a day. When one customer calls in to complain and not a single one of the several hundred others, the problem is usually with the one. In this case, KOMO is that one.
