((sheriff sandra hutchens/

((dave courvoisier)) > more tviewers of this tv station will have to make other arrangements after tonight at midnight. that's when the klas signal will no longer be transmitted to all subscribers to cox cable. ((denise valdez)) despite 5 months of negotiations with cox communication s, no deal has been reached regarding what cox will pay for re-transmitting channel 8's programs. the cable company has released statements about klas which our general manager characterizes as inaccurate and offensive. george knapp has our update. (( )) < lisa howfield/klas general manager: to make a statement like that is untrue and frankly offensive. lisa howfield, general manager of nevada's first and most honored tv station, klas tv, has heard just about enough trash talk from cox cable. she says she would be remiss if she does not advise channel 8
they will lose the klas signal as of midnight friday. cox customers will no longer see the most watched station in nevada....with its popular daytime dramas...highest rated newscasts...syn dicated shows like jeopardy and wheel of fortune...and the powerful cbs prime time lineup, by far the most popular network...all gone for cox customers. howfield advises viewers to make other arrangements, especially football fans who want to watch super bowl 50 next sunday. lisa howfield: ....they won't be able to watch the super bowl on cox. you will be able to watch the super bowl on direct tv, dish, century and if all else fails, you can get a high def antenna and watch it over the air. other local providers are already doing brisk business as cox customers are looking for better deals elsewhere. cox had trouble even before the current dispute. the company once had a near
of local homes which subscribe to cox is dropping. it was down to 48% of the market in november and has since plunged to only 41%. the dispute with klas has opened a lot of simmering complaints from dissatisfied customers. howfield: a lot of locals are starting to drop their subscribership to cox for various reasons. i've spoken to a lot of people recently so i've got quite an arsenal of feedback why they are making a switch. the issue is a simple one....what is a fair rate for cox to pay to retransmit klas programming. channel 8 is by far the most popular station, sign on to sign off, which means it is the biggest draw on the cox system...more than espn or tnt or any other stations which are paid large sums by cox. cox customers pay 8 dollars per month for espn, whether they watch it or not. howfield says cox made a
pay that much. local broadcasters like channel 8 provide 35% of the viewership for cable systems, but get only 12% of the revenue. cox earns many times more from channels 8's original content than does channel 8. a public relations statement sent to cox customers is blatantly false and misleading, howfield says. the claim that klas is demanding three times what it gets from the current agreement--flat ly untrue, she says. callers to cox have ben told their cable bills will jump 20 or 30 dollars if klas wins, which is not only false but ridiculous. howfield is prohibited by law from making public what the retransmission rates would be but says the typical fair amount negotiated by stations all across the country is around 1 dollar per subscriber. cox is paying many times that amount for espn, but only a fraction as much for klas. most telling of all is one fact
proposed re- transmission rate has already been deemed fair and reasonable by every other provider system here...all lisa howfield: every other carrier in this market has recognized the value of a local broadcast and agreed to the terms which are veyr fair...duirect tv, dish, century, they all agree. it's cox who does not. cox has shown it understands the value of klas programming. prior to this dispute, the cable company was one of the top advertisers on klas. it pulled 400,000 dollars in ads from channel 8 after it walked out of the negotiations, including 100,000 dollars to be spent on super bowl sunday, a program that now will not be carried on cox at all. george knapp 8 news now. > ((dave courvoisier)) in the past decade, the parent company for channel 8, nexstar, has successfully reached agreements
the country, and contrary to what cox has implied, has not forced a cutoff of service during that time. the company has issued a detailed response to statements made by cox. you can read it on our website. /// toss to weather < tedd florendo >looking outside today we called for sun to clouds yesterday. what i meant by that was we start with sun then get clouds later in the day. and that's what we saw. temps milder in the 60's again. with winds light for now. but that's going to change after midnight and into tomorrow as well. ............................... ..... afternoon temps in the low 60's through many of our neighborhoods and milder temps for the east side of the valley. cooler for centennial hills and summerlin and even colder for kyle canyon.

< demetria obilor: debbie says, "deer springs rd. is a mess. it goes from two lanes to one between durango dr. and campbell rd. it's an accident waiting to happen. what's going on with this street?" deer springs goes from one to two lanes because several lots remain undeveloped. developers are responsible for putting in the sidewalks, curbs, gutters and sewers as a condition of their building agreement with the city. while there's been significant development to the north and west, the south side is still untouched, which is why the road narrows down. recently, the city of las vegas streets and sanitation team went out to deer springs to secure a manhole and prevent future traffic problems. hey! what's driving you crazy? send your traffic question to
