Charter Communication Notification - Effective January 2, 2019
Charter Communications (“Charter”), locally known as Spectrum, has been in discussions with Tribune Broadcasting (“Tribune”), the owner of WGN America to renew our carriage agreement. At 5:00 P.M. ET on Wednesday, January 2, 2019, Spectrum’s agreement to carry Tribune’s channels expired. As a result, WGN America and all associated Video On Demand content are no longer available to Spectrum customers.
Tribune asked for a dramatic increase in fees (200%) which we believe is completely unjustified. We regret the impact of Tribune’s decision, and we remain optimistic that this matter will be resolved quickly so our customers can again receive Tribune programming.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
