Qubo & ION Plus To Be Eliminated
Clear Creek Communications and ION Media Networks have not agreed to terms for carriage of channels 164 and 165, Qubo and ION Plus. Therefore, they will be removed from our channel lineup on 4/01/2012. By law, negotiations for carriage of local broadcast stations are conducted every three years. In past negotiations, ION has allowed Clear Creek to carry these channels free of charge. However, in the current negotiation ION is demanding a per subscriber fee to carry these channels.
Clear Creek’s goal is to keep our cable television rates as low as possible for our cooperative members and has advised ION that the requirements of continued carriage are unacceptable and that QUBO and ION Plus will be taken off our cable system on 04/01/2012.
