The FCC has clear laws that state; that any and all local networks must broadcast on the TV Providers in that same area. KIRO does not fall into our area. KIRO is not even in our State! This move was taken without CBS-SE knowing about it. We found this out after it was done last Friday at approximately 5:15 pm. We did know that they were experiencing problems with their equipment, however at no time did they advise us that they were turning us off and bringing in a Network from Washington.
KPU CommVision has been advised that it is imperative that they fix their broken equipment and reconnect the CBS-SE signal for their customers. If they do not comply, then they are in continued violation of FCC rules and regulations and it will be dealt with accordingly.
