If you are a customer of Bright House cable, you may have tried to tune in the Today Show this morning only to realize it wasn’t there. Or more correctly, the entire channel wasn’t there.
That’s because as of 12:01, Bright House stopped carrying the Hearst channels in Orlando. This includes WESH (the local NBC affiliate), WKCF (the local CW affiliate), Me-TV (an oldies station), This (a free movie channel) and Estrella (a Spanish station).
The carriage agreement between the stations and Bright House expired at 11:59pm yesterday, July 9. Unfortunately, the stations, and the cable provider could not reach an agreement, so none of the local Hearst stations are available to Bright House subscribers right now.
Hopefully this will get resolved soon, since the Summer Olympics are due to be aired over WESH, starting July 27. In the meantime, Bright House says they have made arrangements to carry WBRE, the NBC affiliate from Wilke-Barre, PA.
WESH and WKCF are still available for free via a digital antenna. I use this method, but for some reason, I can get WKCF, This and Estrella fine, but can’t get WESH or Me-TV.
