CLICK: KOMO owner should consider wishes of viewing public

I am on a fixed income, and though I’ve been a faithful watcher of Channel 4 for years, if Fisher Broadcasting cannot reach a reasonable agreement with Tacoma’s Click Network, I will certainly miss Channel 4, but I will not switch from Click, as its rates are more reasonable than other providers.

I hope Fisher Broadcasting will consider the wishes of the viewing public in its negotiations with Click, rather than looking to increase its bottom line.



CLICK: Goodbye, KOMO

Apparently Fisher Broadcasting is not aware of the current television landscape. This is no longer the time period of two or three broadcast channels.

CLICK: KOMO’s losing a viewer

I am a satisfied Click Network customer and ardent supporter of my local community. I would like to encourage others to do what I did and investigate the dispute between Click and Fisher Broadcasting (owner of KOMO TV).

So sorry, Fisher. I will just change the channel until you become reasonable. Click!
