With Nexstar forcing TDS to go dark with affiliate channels across the U.S., Jim Butman, TDS’ President and CEO speaks directly to customers about this fight.
Although Nexstar would like you believe that TDS is at fault, as Jim explains, removing channels was not our choice. In reality, TDS is resisting an up to 129% rate increase that would ultimately impact you, our customer.
We hope you’ll take a moment to watch and find out how you can join the battle to keep media conglomerates like Nexstar in check.
