A message to our Cox Cable subscribers in Acadiana

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.

    A few weeks ago, the Welsh town council voted on the $15,000 dollar raise for Police Chief Marcus Crochet, but deadlocked, meaning no pay increase. The council will hold a public meeting August 1 to again discuss raising the police chief's salary from $40,000 a year to $55,000 a year.

    A new veterans memorial is in the works for the town of DeQuincy.

    It will be a replication of "Raising the Flag" in Japan during World War II, and will honor area veterans like the Clifton brothers, who returned to their hometown of DeQuincy after serving in the war.
