  1. Luckily some can watch. Toledo, Ohio cannot. Our local NBC affiliate (WNWO-TV/DT) and ‘BUCKEYE CABLE’ are at an impass on broadcast fees and rights. Only way to actually see the olympics is to watch analog TV on WNWO. WNWO is not going to be on cable and has current azmuth aiming issues. Therefore, most of the market will not get a quality picture. FOr HD olympics, WDIV “local4” is the only setup that will work.
    I’m so glad that someone doesn’t play games when getting info and US coverage out to the public.
    Thanks WNWO 24/49 and BUCKEYE Cable.
    *note that I probably will never be a part of “MOB MEDIA’s” custom. That’s another “inside name” for Buckeye Cable. Most of my broadcast peeps use that term.
