A message for our COX Cable subscribers in Acadiana:

At  KPLC, nothing is more important to us than providing Southwest Louisiana with the very best in local news and weather, along with your favorite KPLC programming.

In order to serve our viewers, KPLC has in place agreements with the cable and satellite companies that bring our station to your home. In fact, KPLC has such agreements in place with every TV provider in our area.

Unfortunately, we have been unable to reach an Agreement with COX Cable.

Since October, 2012, we have been working to resolve this matter, but so far have been unable to reach an Agreement with COX Cable for the continued carriage of KPLC. This is particularly disappointing because all the other TV providers in our area have Agreements with us and those Agreements are fundamentally similar to the one we have been negotiating with COX Cable.

As a result, on January 1, COX Cable customers lost access to  KPLC.

We understand how frustrating this is for you. We share your frustration. After all, you pay COX Cable 100% of your bill each month. Why shouldn't you get 100% of your channels? You can reach your local COX Customer Service Rep (855) 202-0838.

KPLC  is committed to resolving this matter and getting back on the dial. But in the meantime, you should know that you have choices. You can always get your local broadcast channel free over the air with a good outdoor antenna.

Thank you for your viewership and support.

    Tonight, there will be plenty of clouds around, with a few breaks in between. There should not be any rain around us for the night. It will be warm and muggy. Lows tonight are only in the mid 60s. There is also a good chance we will see fog overnight. There is already plenty of fog at the coast, and that should spread further inland overnight. Take caution on the roads in the morning on your commute. Monday should be another dry, but cloudy day.
