FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Atlanta, GA – January 1, 2016 – Mission Broadcasting has pulled its programming from Cox’s lineup for Cox customers in Berryville and Harrison, AR and Pittsburg, KS. Cox’s agreement with Mission expired at 12: 00 a.m. local time, January 1, 2016. Mission is withholding its programming because Cox won’t give them a price increase that is three times more than what Cox already pays them for programming that is available for free over the air. Exorbitant increases - like the one MIssion is demanding – increase cable bills every year. Cox is actively negotiating to get the channels back at a reasonable price.
