Charter screws up again

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Charter screws up again

Channel 8, the local FOX station, is frozen on a commercial and thus no Packer game. This happened with Charter last season too. What is wrong with them?

Surprisingly, this one isn't their fault - Fox 47 power is out due to a blown transmitter....

Can't the feed get switched over to FSN? Currently they are airing womens college basketball.

Too bad our beloved Packers are being held hostage by the amateurs at Faux.

I would think power is power. The whole station is out, according to Madison.com. Game is back up on Charter, SD and HD, but the OTA feed is still down. Maybe they picked the feed up from somewhere else...

I still have the frozen screen on Charter channel 8.

Channel 8 just came back on, in time for a commercial.
